What a year at SEMA… Record numbers, tons of new interest and a killer presence around the show, without a doubt one of our best years yet! This year marked our 5th year exhibiting at the SEMA looking back its amazing to see how far we’ve come since the company was founded 18 years ago. This year we teamed up with the other divisions of Sport Truck USA Inc (Zone Offroad Products, JKS Manufacturing, and Posi-Lok) to showcase new products and make some big announcements. The 25×80 booth space was transformed into a bar setting as we welcomed industry professionals, current dealers, and the media in for an ice cold beer and a casual conversation. We debuted a killer 2013 Ram 3500 sporting the BDS 8” 4-Link Conversion as well as the Project KJ, our Ultimate Adventure tested ’05 Liberty CRD. Needless to say, the booth went over well, the beer was drank, and it became the daily hangout of many from around the industry.
But the show isn’t just about a cool booth and free beer. This year the crew from BDS debuted a number of cool parts like the radius arm and 4-Link conversion kits for the new 2013 Ram 3500 and 2014 Ram 2500 trucks, showcased new products for Ford, Chevy, and Dodge trucks and announced the Factory Protection Plus Program, a comprehensive package that includes the BDS No Fine Print Warranty, FMVSS No.126 ESC System testing, and 5year-60,000mile drivetrain coverage. There was quite a buzz going around the show with the announcements as many stopped by hang out in the booth and hear more about new products and upcoming projects.
Around the show BDS worked with a number of show builders to showcase products on a number of show trucks. Companies like Ford, Fusion Bumpers, Spyder Auto, American Force, Boondock Bumpers, Diamond Eye Performance, Dee Zee, and Iron Cross Automotive showcased BDS equipped vehicles in their booths as well as dozens of other companies who repped BDS on their featured vehicles around the show. BDS’s Project Slate was on display outside as a featured vehicle showing off a number of cool products as well as taking on towing duties to and from the show. All in all nearly 60 BDS-equipped trucks and Jeeps were on display for this year’s show helping gain exposure at the event as well as at various photoshoot following the show.
Simply put, we had a blast out at SEMA. Without a doubt our best year yet and thank you to everyone, our dealers, new customers, media members, and friends from around the industry for coming by our booth and helping make the 2013 SEMA Show an amazing event. We’re excited for the future and looking forward to a stellar 2014!
