2012 SEMA Show Off-Road Highlights

Oct. 31, 2012 By Josh Burns

It was back in 1963 that the Specialty Equipment Market Association was founded. It wasn’t actually until 1967, however, that SEMA had its first official show in January of that year, held under the grandstands of Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles with 98 booths and about 3,000 attendees.

The show has grown in leaps and bounds over the years, now being  a must-attend event for most anyone in the automotive industry. Although focusing on the aftermarket, practically every major automotive company has a presence here in some shape or form. The 2012 show now features more than 2,200 exhibitors, which is the highest number of exhibitors in the show’s history.

It’s not all tuners and streets rods, however. The off-road segment of the automotive aftermarket has a vey strong presence at SEMA, which seems to only have grown in recent years. Here’s a small collection of highlights from this year’s show so far.
