Mopar Showing 2 Modded Trucks at SEMA

Oct 26, 2018

The Mopar division of FCA will have one of the biggest displays at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas and have previewed two the Mopar-modified machines that will be on display.

Mopar is bringing a pair of new Ram 1500 pickups – one of which has been lowered and another that has been lifted – showing the versatility of the half-ton truck.

“The SEMA Show is truly the greatest stage for our brand to demonstrate what owners and enthusiasts can create with a little imagination and a selection of Mopar parts and accessories,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Parts & Service (Mopar) and Passenger Car Brands, FCA – North America. “There is a method to our SEMA madness — we use this show as a venue to gauge enthusiast interest in prototype parts that may become production offerings in the future.”

While there may be other Ram trucks in the Mopar display at SEMA, the company has already shown off two of them – a lowered Ram 1500 Big Horn and a lifted Ram 1500 Rebel.

Mopar-modified Ram 1500 Rebel Concept

First up is the Ram 1500 Rebel Concept. This half-ton truck has been fitted with an array of items currently offered by Mopar, including beadlock wheels wrapped in 35-inch off-road rubber, aluminum running boards, off-road fog lights, wheel flares, skid plates, five-inch exhaust tips, and door sill plates.

Next, Mopar added some concept items, such as the unique hood with the front scoop inlet, the “Ram Bar” in the bed with an in-bed tire carrier, silver gas and brake pedals, and the distinct Rebel graphics on the bedside – which aren’t available now, but these graphics are coming to the Mopar catalog soon.

Under the concept’s hood sits a 5.7-liter Hemi topped with the new Ram AirFlow cold air intake system, which is said to add more power, but we don’t know how much.

Ram 1500 Big Horn “Low Down” Concept

Next, is the Low Down Concept, which is based on the 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn. While the RebelConcept is obviously built to perform off-road, the Low Down is a street truck.

Like the Rebel, the Low Down has the concept sport hood, Ram AirFlow cold air intake on the 5.7-liter Hemi, along with the door sill plates and concept silver pedals.

These are just two of the 14 vehicles that Mopar will have on display at SEMA, so stay tuned to our coverage next week, including the big engine news on Tuesday.

Skyjacker Suspensions at SEMA 2018

Get the Best Off-Road Ride Possible With Skyjacker Suspensions at SEMA 2018

Oct 29, 2018

Conquering trails is a beautiful thing. Whenever you’re hitting the dirt, you want your vehicle to perform—and Skyjacker Suspensions can help smooth your ride.

This year, Skyjacker is excited to announce that it has answered over 30 requests for its products to be on vehicles at the SEMA Show taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from October 30thto November 2nd, 2018.

As the premier annual trade event for automotive specialty products in the world, SEMA provides attendees with the opportunity to enjoy educational seminars, product demonstrations, special events and networking opportunities.

In 2017, SEMA drew more than 70,000 domestic and international buyers to its tables.

And so, it’s easy to see how it’s a helpful event, and a big deal.

Skyjacker is honored to announce that 25 of its requests for the show were for its Jeep JL Dual Rate-Long Travel Suspension Kits. Want to get your hands on one?

Here’s all you need to know about the kits and the company, in order to take advantage of this superior automotive technology built for die-hard off-roading fans, with a wild streak at heart.

All About the 2018 Jeep JL Dual Rate-Long Travel Suspension Kits

The 2018 Jeep JL Dual Rate-Long Travel Suspension Kits are available for both 2-door and 4-door models in lifts ranging from 1”-4”. Essentially, they give you the best of both worlds.

The first rate, lighter spring rate offers exceptional highway ride quality. This allows for the suspension to drop out and keep the tires in contact with the ground much longer, while the coils remain in the upper coil bucket at full drop.

The second rate offers consistent control and stability during body roll. You enjoy heavy off-road suspension movement during extreme off-road use, no matter where the path takes you.

Safety? Don’t Worry, It’s Covered.

No doubt, your vehicle needs to be safe. Skykjacker gets that.

In accordance with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 126, the company voluntarily tested their Jeep Wrangler JL lift systems before placing anything in your hands.

Vehicles were put through a series of evasive lane-change maneuvers at highway speeds. This was to ensure that the driver can safely maintain control in critical driving situations.

It was all done to reduce the risk of rollover crashes, assuring your safety as a customer.
About Skyjacker

Based in West Monroe, L.A, Skyjacker specializes in after-market suspension kits and other vehicle accessories.

The company was formed in 1974. Its goal is to rise above the rest and help give you the best ride possible.
