Power Automedia met up with BDS at the Ford booth at the 2018 SEMA Show to get some insight on #ProjectRangerX. Ford’s booth is definitely one of the best booths at SEMA. The 2019 Ford Ranger is coming to America, and not only did we got our hands on one of the first in the country, but we had the opportunity to  do a complete overhaul on it and have it featured in Ford’s booth.

This build was inspired by adventure. We are offroad enthusiasts and we wanted this truck to reflect that. This truck is awesome right out of the gate both on road and offroad, but we wanted to take it to the next level so that no adventure was out of reach.

Its an exciting time in the mid sized truck world as the Ford Ranger returns to the great US of A for 2019. While at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, we took some time to visit our favorite 2019 Ford Ranger builds, including our very own, #ProjectRangerX.

Most of these builds were featured in the Ford booth, and almost all of them featured BDS Suspension Systems on them. These lift systems will be making their way into the market in the near future.

Each year as the SEMA Show draws near social media and media outlets have an influx of content with OEs, aftermarket manufacturers and vehicle builders show off their latest creations and newest releases. While video is king a new (old) media is gaining steam in the form of a truck and offroad focused podcast that airs weekly on iTunes and other podcast services. Going by the originally title “The Truck Show Podcast” the show regularly has industry professionals, celebrities, and representatives on to talk truck, Jeep, current trends, upcoming OE news, cover events and more. I’ve personally been a listener of the show since the beginning and have enjoyed the info, the interviews and the commentary. (Mountered Parameters!) its an inside joke you’ll have to listen to get the backstory. I’ve had the chance to be on the show a couple times in some capacity, from a random EJS on the spot interview to an email or two that were read on the air. Last week while manning the booth (the bar specifically) towards the end of one of the days Holman and Lightning (hosts of the podcast) stopped by for a beer to catch up with mic’s in hand. Take a listen to the informal interview I had with the guys talking about trucks, beards and beers and be sure to check out more episodes from the show, its worth the listen.
