With only 10 days before the SEMA Show I thought I would give you a preview of what is to come.
There are a few key shows that happen throughout the year, and we just attended two of them…the Sand Sports Super Show and the Off Road Expo. But now we switch gears and go to an industry only Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association Show, commonly known as the SEMA Show. This is the show where every part of the Automotive industry is represented. The SEMA Show attracts more than 100,000 industry leaders from over 100 countries covering the Automotive, Truck, SUV, Off Road, Powersports and RV markets. There are over two million square feet of exhibits which is more than four buildings to cover. Let me tell you…my feet hurt at the end of the week!
This show is not open to the public, but you will be able to see what is hot right here on UTVWeekly.com!
Lets start shopping now! Here are just some of the new products that will be highlighted at this years show…

Baja Designs will introduce three new products at this years show: Kwik Jak, Strykr, LED Dome/Rock Light

Its collapsed height adjusts from a easy-to-stow 12.5” up to 18.5”, and it has a 6” stroke. Multiple jack pad configurations allow the Kwik Jak to work on almost any vehicle. Another benefit of the jack is that it fits in a standard race car fire extinguisher mount for easy accessibility on tube frame vehicles. Kits are also available to adapt the jack to your on-board CO2 system or to use larger refillable CO2 canisters.
The Strykr 2” LED Adventure Light: The Strykr’s 700 lumens and long li-ion battery life guarantee that darkness won’t hold you back. With tool-less mounting options for mc/bike helmets and mc/bike handlebars, a head
strap, and a hand strap, the Strykr is the most versatile adventure light available. You can even use it with your vehicle’s 12 volt battery.
The Strykr was designed to survive both our troops serving in the Middle East and the most serious off-road racers. The whole system is also waterproof to 33 feet. At only 520 grams the system is also incredibly lightweight. It offers three levels of brightness and a strobe mode.
LED Dome/Rock Light
Baja Designs new LED Dome/Rock Light is waterproof and can be mounted anywhere. It has a 360 degree optic to illuminate your cab, engine bay, wheel wells or anywhere you need a super bright, super smooth light. It is available with or without an integrated switch and in tube-mount or panel-mount versions. If desired, the tube mount versions can even be installed using a zip tie—no drilling required. Its simple two-wire installation will have you on the trails in no time.
Bully Dog Technologies’ new GT and WatchDog line of products feature an internal POP function that makes it very easy to demo; simply plug a mini-USB cable into the port on the back of the package, the unit powers on automatically and will then cycle through various demos allowing consumers to see the capabilities of the product.
The GT and WatchDog product line offers a number of features, including the ability to monitor four vehicle parameters at one time with a crystal-clear, full-color display. The appearance, placement and colors of the display can be customized to fit your vehicle, mood and style. The Driving Coach software was designed to provide each driver with a savings each and every time they are behind the wheel. The software calculates the vehicle’s wasted energy due to vehicle operation, it then suggests altering driving habits in order to save energy and fuel. The diagnostic tool feature of the WatchDog allows users to read, diagnose and then erase check engine lights and trouble codes. The GT line also serves as a downloader adding additional power.

DU-HA Inc. will release its Receiver Caddy at the 2009 SEMA Show. The Receiver Caddy is designed to hold ball mounts in the bed of pickup trucks and the rear cargo area of SUVs. The Receiver Caddy is heavy duty, constructed of fiberglass reinforced nylon and is fastened securely to the bed of pickups and the rear cargo area of SUVs. This new product is designed to hold two standard ball mounts, with room for trailer balls and hitch pins in the base. The lockable pin mechanism helps prevent theft as well as provides a safe storage area and reduces the risk of flying projectiles. This new product will be of tremendous value to consumers.
The Hi-Lift Jack Company UTV jack will be introduced to the market first at the 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The “original power tool” of the off-road market is now available to meet the ever-increasing demands of the UTV market with this specialized Hi-Lift jack model. The Hi-Lift UTV jack is the perfect size for UTV operators (off-roaders, farmers, ranchers, search and rescue personnel, and the general outdoorsman), with 36” and 42” models, each weighing less than 30 lbs.
The Hi-Lift UTV jack is superior to the factory-supplied UTV jack in that it allows you to lift the UTV from many locations, instead of being limited to specific points under the vehicle. It offers greater capacity with a 7,000 pound tested and 4,660 pound rated load limit. Additionally, the Hi-Lift UTV jack outperforms the factory-supplied jack in that it is a true “multi-purpose tool” that provides the ability to lift, winch, pull, spread, and clamp. It can be used in all conditions… water, mud, sand and even snow.
The Hi-Lift UTV jack is available with a full-line of Hi-Lift jack accessories, that make it even more valuable and efficient for many applications. Now, with the recent development of the Adjustable Tube Mounts, the Hi-Lift® UTV jack can be mounted easily and securely to any round or square tubing locations on a UTV… front/rear bumpers, bull bars, roll cages and/or roof racks.
Royal Purple will introduce its new high-tech oil filters at the 2009 SEMA Show. Commercial fleets use advanced micro-glass oil filters to extend the life of heavy-duty trucks and equipment.
The high-tech oil filters use special synthetic glass microfibers about 10 times smaller than conventional cellulose filter fibers to provide superior filtration. High-performance lubricant manufacturer Royal Purple is now bringing this technology to the consumer market.
Royal Purple’s new high-performance oil filters combine advanced micro-glass technology and high capacity with optimized flow characteristics for maximum performance and filter life.
Each filter features 100% synthetic micro-glass media for superior particle removal with 99% filtration efficiency; a high-performance silicone anti-drain back valve that prevents dry starts even in extreme conditions; a heavy gauge steel back-plate for maximum burst strength; an extra heavy-duty nitrile-rubber base gasket with special lubricity compounds to reduce torque during installation and ensure a leak-free seal; and ultra-strength filter housing that provides extra protection against puncture from road debris.
Royal Purple oil filters allow change intervals to be extended up to 12,000 miles. Vehicles still under warranty should follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended filter change intervals.
While Royal Purple filters are fully compatible with all synthetic and conventional oils, Royal Purple recommends using its high-performance motor oil, which also has a 12,000-mile life. For more information, visit www.royalpurple.com.
