As if you don’t already know, the 2017 SEMA Show is right around the corner, kicking off in just a couple of weeks in Las Vegas. As the premier automotive trade show in the world, SEMA always has something for everybody, regardless of what niche or type of the automotive world you’re into. The Battle of the Builders, or BOTB, is an epic show-wide build off open to any vendor or builder who has a booth at the show.
According to the SEMA website, “SEMA Battle of the Builders® is a competition that recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of SEMA vehicle builders. Open to all customizers with a car or truck on display at the SEMA Show, the competition shines the spotlight on the amazing talents and craftsmanship of builders who have already proven themselves by being a part of the premier automotive trade event in the world. It allows enthusiasts and fans a chance to learn the stories behind the builds, get to know the builders and be inspired along the way. All builders with a feature or booth vehicle on display at the 2017 SEMA Show are invited and encouraged to participate.”
Now that you know what’s going on, we have a look at one of the entries into the BOTB for 2017, a 6×6 Jeep build from Bruiser Conversions. The subtle-yet-attention grabbing Jeep is powered by a GM LS3 and beefy suspension system, as well as the obvious additional axle that really makes this ride stand out. The guys at Bruiser Conversions specialize in anything from basic upgrades to full on custom builds like this, and you can tell they have a great vision and follow through on their projects.
What do you think about this Jeep? What would you change about it, or would you jump in and drive it just like it sits? I don’t think I’d change anything but the radio station personally.
