Each year thousands of the top automotive customizers converge on the SEMA Show to showcase their latest creations. The show is a mix of late model and classic rides; some lifted, some lowered; from radical hotrod to purpose built race vehicles; bro dozers to rice rockets. Of those thousands of vehicles only a few hundred enter the ultimate builder showdown known as the Battle of the Builders. This competition pits the best builders and the most unique builds again one another where only one can take home the top honor.
Throughout the show the competitors are narrowed down to the top 100 builds, then top 40, then top 12 voted on a handful of industry professionals. For 2018 Battle of the Builders the BDS team entered the build, the 2019 Ford Ranger dubbed Project Ranger X. While the truck didn’t make the top 12, it did make it to the Top 40 Builds of the 2018 SEMA Show. Me sure to set your DVRs or tun in to watch the SEMA Battle of the Builders TV show to find out who took home top honors. The show premiers on the MotorTrend Network on January 7, 2019 at 10:00PM.
