Its that time of year, not long after the ball drops to usher in the new year you’ll find convention halls across the country are filled with the latest offerings from automakers for public consumption, even some cool concepts to show each brand’s potential. Held in the windy city each February, this marked the 110th edition of the Chicago Auto Show. Known as the nation’s largest auto show, this event is held at the McCormick Place Complex sprawling over 1 million sq.ft. of exhibit space to show off the latest cars, trucks and concept vehicles from all the biggest auto manufacturers. From Monster trucks and 6×6 beasts, to trucks on tracks and hotrod trucks, there was no shortage of concepts on hand for the public to check out. BDS had the opportunity to participate in the action getting called upon from Ford to showcase Project SD126 in their booth at the show showing the truck off in all its glory.

Additionally Ford had the Tuscany built Shelby F150 out at the show boasting 755 hp supercharged 5.0L engine, custom body/interior styling and BDS 4″ suspension system with FOX coilovers/shocks to roast a set of 35″ BFGs. Meanwhile over in Chevrolet’s booth longtime project builder (builder of the original Stubby F350) had his newest creation on display going by the name of Retrorado. This standard cab, short bed 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 is a step back in time with retro styling and build queues wrapped into a modern package. The truck sits on a preproduction 8″ BDS IFS System along with Zone Offroad 1.5″ body lift to fit 39″ Interco tires. Stay tuned as there is most to come on this truck throughout 2018.
