Have you ever dreamed of building that dream rig? Would it be a restored classic truck? A lifted Jeep Wrangler, an Overland vehicle, or something else entirely?

This year SEMA for 2020 is online and has been marketed as SEMA360! It’s a bit different not walking countless miles around the trade show in Las Vegas just trying to see everything the show has to offer.

Thankfully, the show must go on as they say in show business. Thankfully for all of us, there are still some amazing SEMA builds for us to enjoy.

Here are a five of my favorite vintage SUV and Truck builds from SEMA360!

2020 SEMA Battle of the Builders®

What Is The Builder Showcase at SEMA?

SEMA Battle of the Builders® is the foremost competition that recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of SEMA vehicle builders. Now in its seventh year, Battle of the Builders brings added exposure to the unique vehicles and the aftermarket products the builders used.

More than 200 vehicles were entered into the 2020 SEMA Battle of the Builders® competition, which will be produced remotely for SEMA360 (an online event taking place Nov. 2-6, 2020) and for a television special on History and FYI.

The competition will again include the Young Guns category, which was introduced in 2016 to provide special recognition to up-and-coming builders under the age of 27. Through partnerships with regional car shows throughout the nation, SEMA is providing young builders the opportunity for national exposure as they compete alongside industry icons.

How Does The Builder Battle Work?

All submitted entries will be culled down to a Top 40, Top 12, and Top 4, before a winner is announced.

The Top 40 will be selected based on applications submitted and consist of 10 from each category (Hot Rod, Sport Compact, Truck/Off-Road, and Young Guns).
• The Top 12 will be selected based on video interviews of all Top 40 builders.
• The Top 12, which will consist of three builders from each category, will then be flown to Los Angeles and have their vehicles transported for an in-person event and filming. The Top 12 become the judges and will select amongst themselves who the ultimate winner of the competition is.

Who Are The 2020 Judges?

2020 Judges
• RJ DeVera (Sport Compact)
• Cam Miller (Young Guns)
• Jeremiah Proffitt (Truck/Off-Road)
• Jim & Mike Ring/Ringbrothers (Hot Rod)

When Will The Winners Be Announced?

Tuesday, Nov. 3 (12 p.m. PT): Top 40 Press Conference on SEMA360
Wednesday, Nov. 4 (12 p.m. PT): Top 12 Press Conference on SEMA360
Friday, Nov. 6 (3:30 p.m. PT): Winners Announced on SEMA360

I've had a passion for four-wheel-drive vehicles since I was a kid riding in the back seat of my Grandfather's Jeep Grand Wagoneer. I have owned a lot of vehicles over the years. They each have their pros and cons and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you so you can find the vehicle that's just right for your needs.
