When we go to SEMA, we know that we are going to see some seriously built vehicles. With so many amazing rigs that companies have been working on for many months, it's really hard to pick favorites. But at the end of the day, there are those that just stand out above the rest. We give you our top 5 picks from this year's SEMA Show:

#5 – Synergy's 1971 Jeepster Commando

Synergy brought this beautiful '71 Commando that was built on a 2017 Jeep JKU frame. This project has been in the works for a few years as they worked on marrying the JKU frame with the classic Commando body. Once the 2 were mated, Synergy stuffed the Jeep with a full custom Alpine stereo system, stock Rubicon axles, JE Reel drive shafts, a 6.4 LQ4 engine, Synergy skid plates and lift, Atlas 4.3 transfer case, a Gearstar 4L80E transmission and a Warn winch. They then fitted it with with some 35" Nitto Ridge Grapplers making this one very sweet Commando.

#4 – The JCR 1989 Manche

Last year, we were in love with JCR's Real Hawk mounted on snow tracks, so we were excited to see what they cooked up this year. Who likes their pizza hot and delivered to you in 30 min or less? The JCR Trail Side Pizza delivery Manche truck is a 1989 Jeep Comanche that was given a '97 XJ interior, doors hood and front clip. JCR then cladded the 'Manche' with a JCR Vanguard front bumper, a Crusader rear bumper, rock sliders, TJ gas tank skid, Pre-Runner tire carrier and a roof rack. Some body work was done to the hood by adding custom hood vents and a Mach 1 reproduction hood scoop. They then stuffed a Tera 60 and a CRD 60 front and rear axle and mounted some 37" Nitto Trail Grappler MT's on Mamba M14 Wheels. There is so much on this rig, we could probably talk about its details for weeks. But if you want to see the rig in 30 min or less, just call JCR and ask for some trail side pizza!

#3 – Yukon 4 door Bronco by the Maxlider Bros

This immaculate 1966 Bronco was stretched 26 inches in the middle to gain the added space for 2 additional doors and room for 3 rows of seats. The Bronco was given a Roush supercharged Coyote 5.0L V8 that is capable of somewhere in the neighborhood of 600hp, an Atlas 2 t-case, Currie axles, custom suspension with Fox racing shocks and then set on 37" BFG mud-terrains with Fuel Nutz wheels. The interior is a one of a kind Maxlider customization with water resistant baseball glove brown marine vinyl seats, a Wetsounds Bluetooth sound bar complete with subs. The Bronco was painted with a beautiful '67 Mustang Fastback Brittney Blue and was sold for over $200,000!

#2 – Milestar '07 Jeep JKU Gladiator by Chris Durham

While we have never been a huge fan of the Gladiator grilles on a JKU, when we saw this beast in the Milestar booth, it made us relive our childhood when we played with the old Stomper vehicles! This is simply a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a Chris Durham Gladiator conversion kit. What really sets this one apart is the retro paint job that was put on it. This custom Jeep runs a 3.5" Skyjacker Long-Arm System and is sporting Dana 44's front and rear and sits on some new Walker Evans beadlock wheels in orange and black with massive 40-inch Milestar Patagonia M/T tires.

#1 – Skyjacker 1966 Bayou Bronco

Early on in the year, we stated on our Facebook page that the Bronco would probably be the star of SEMA this year and we were right! Skyjacker brought their 1966 Ford Bronco that had been stretched 8 inches in the middle and then had the front Dynatrac axle moved 3" forward and rear Dynatrac axle moved 3" toward the rear, giving this Bronco an amazing stance with a wheelbase of 106". The suspension is a Skyjacker 4 link with Leduc coilover series shocks. The motor is a huge Windsor stroked 427 V8 and sports some serious HP. Complete with an Atlas transfer case, it pushes some big 'ol BFG M/Ts. There was no detail missed on this Bronco, even down to the Bronco Horse mounted in the headlights. This Bronco is sure to turn some heads on the trail!
