Gallery: In the realm of the SEMA Brodozer
Somewhere between the normal pickup and the Monster Truck lies the realm of the Brodozer. Here there be giants.
The sheer engineering daring it takes to jack something this big and heavy this high in the air and keep it there is something to be celebrated. Chrome plating it – or powdercoating it - is just the icing on the cake, literally and figuratively.
Most of these you see here had to be parked outside, they were just too big for the 2 million square feet of floorspace in the Las Vegas Convention Center. A few did manage to cram into the halls, where they sat menacingly, threatening the smaller trucks.
The secret insider’s tip: Come back Friday for SEMA Ignited to see them roll out with all their fluorescent lights underneath, like alien spacecraft come to conquer us all. We surrender!
