4WDrive - - Feature -

So we come to the meat of what SEMA is all about – af­ter­mar­ket prod­ucts that you can bolt or weld to your 4WD. While it is easy to get car­ried away and dis­tracted with all the spec­tac­u­lar show ve­hi­cles, in re­al­ity these over-the-top builds are sim­ply there to show­case what the sum of all these great parts can cre­ate when they come to­gether.

This year did not yield as many brand new prod­ucts as in years past. It must be said that there was a lot of unimag­i­na­tive and bla­tant cloning of al­ready suc­cess­ful prod­ucts on dis­play. But there were also a fair amount of “that’s a good idea” prod­ucts that made us do a dou­ble take as we scanned through the aisles of new goods on dis­play - great ideas that made you won­der why you hadn’t thought of them ear­lier.

With this in mind, all three ed­i­tors had a lit­tle sit down on the flight home and ham­mered out our top 10 best new prod­ucts for 2016. Choos­ing a top 10 from such a gath­er­ing is never an easy propo­si­tion, and I won’t lie, there was some hard de­bat­ing, some name-call­ing, some feel­ings hurt and the odd tear shed. How­ever, by the time we landed back in the Great White North, we had our top ten.

So here you have it, in no par­tic­u­lar or­der, the Ed­i­tors’ Top Picks from the 2015 SEMA Show.
