It goes without fail, every time we head to SEMA, there are so many cool new products that we would like to throw in our backpack and haul home. Some may not fit, but that’s ok, we still want to bring them home. Here are a few of the items that we thought would be great to highlight from this year’s SEMA show.
Superwinch EXP series
Superwinch unveiled the new Expedition series winch with 8 new patent pending features! The new Auto-Engage clutch makes it easy to reengage your winch with just a tap of the winch controller. No more having to hike back to the vehicle to engage the clutch. The winch also sports a fused power port providing you the ability connect additional accessories. The winch also includes a waterproof potting method; protecting the internal electronics, integrated LED lights; giving you the ability to see what you’re doing in the dark, integrated timer to help save your battery and a smart dual control; allowing you to use a wired or wireless controller and it knows when to switch between the 2! Even the design is new and comes with accessory mounts for things like Go-Pro’s
Bestop’s new embroidery
The Jeep market is all about your own customization and Bestop have taken that one step further, giving their customers the ability for custom embroidering. Now we don’t mean that you can send in a picture or logo and it will be embroidered on, but you can now customize the stitching colors on your top to match the colors of your Jeep. They do have a limited logo option that you can add to your soft top, but they do hope to expand that in the future. Just another great option from our friends over at Bestop.
Up Down Air System
We all know that we are going to have to air down when we hit the trail and up when we leave. Generally this means going around the vehicle to each tire to air them down and back up. This system allows you the ability to regulate your air pressure up or down to all 4 tires at the control valve at the same time. This complete system installs easily without drilling under your Jeep hood and comes with 8 quick release chucks and 4 short hoses that attach to your tires allowing 4 tires to be regulated. This is due to hit the market early next year.
Rockslide Engineering Auto Step
Not everyone needs serious rock sliders on their Jeep. There are plenty of people just looking for a simple step that looks good. Rockslide Engineering introduced their new Auto Step to fill that gap. The automatic step is an aluminum tub side step that deploys 8″ down when the door opens. The actuator is sealed so it is protected from the elements and can mount directly into factory holes so anyone can install. These steps are quick, quiet and strong and come powder coated textured black.
Oracle Vector Series Grill
Oracle introduced their new Vector grill at SEMA this year. The responses have been off the charts; some good, some bad. This is the first full-featured replacement grill with integrated LED lights for low/high beams, turn signals and a dynamic LED inset. Oracle retained the 7 slots and gave the grill some aggressive styling. Within the grill, the LED beams can be independently adjusted to ensure you are not blinding oncoming traffic and also has the ability to run DRL (Daytime Running Lights). Like it or hate it, it is definitely a unique Jeep grill.
There are so many other great products to come out of SEMA. Hopefully throughout the year, we will be able to get to show you more as we get our hands on some of the products to show you first hand. Be sure and check back to see more!
