Instagram’s favorite man on the ground at SEMA dropped a flurry of gems calling out brotrucks, brodozers, lifted trucks, and pretty much anything over stock ride height with a bed.
The last day of SEMA means that everyone who brought out their rolling projects can now breathe easy with their contractual duties out of the way. That also means, if they want, they can drive their masterpieces out onto the strip for a little fun.
According to @FormulaDerp, there’s one particular subset of the aftermarket scene that formed the bulk of Friday’s mayhem on the last day of SEMA, those pesky lifted trucks. Call ’em what you want, they were 80 percent of headache causing incidents earlier yesterday.
Here’s the handful of posts @FormulaDerp posted up.
First, here’s a gallery of fails, showcasing the worst that the lifted truck community brought out to SEMA. Notice anything missing? At least eight lifted trucks didn’t bother to install a driveshaft which means if there was a fire, they’d first have to hook-up a driveshaft if they wanted their pride and joys to make it out unsinged.
Here’s crash number one. It looks like this brodozer didn’t stop in time, slamming into the back of this Civic hatch build.

Without fail – every single year – a big dumb stupid fucking SEMA truck rear-ends someone. STOP BRINGING your money flexing, chrome chassis, no driveshaft having, dads construction company tax write-off, YEEYEE highway dog turd to SEMA. And @semashow: stop enabling these mouth breathers by allowing their powdercoated jalopies to be apart of the trade show. It diminishes the legitimacy of the whole damn show. There is no driving market that justifies them being here besides chrome tractor wheels from American force. ••• #fuckinggoontrucks #sema2019 #everyyear #paradecollisions #enough #stopSEMAgoontrucks #5foottallHIDbeamcutoff
Crash #2 saw this rolling 7-11 on wheels slam into the back of this Mercedes wagon. This was probably a family just enjoying a pleasant evening on the strip before they got rear-ended by this rolling stadium light on wheels.
Here’s crash #3. No backstory on this one but it’s probably something as horrendous as the two above.
This next one is just a classic fail. These functional lifted trucks aren’t so functional even if they have enough tread and lift to ford the deepest river. This truck owner can’t be bothered with a little Nevada dust on his sick wheels.
Just read the comment on this next one. Decency, these people have none.
And finally, this one’s my favorite and this is why the terror***s hate us. This brodozer can’t even run under its own power. That didn’t stop this bunch of bananas from loading their truck on a trailer and towing it around, all accessories flashing and beats bumping.
Love ’em or hate ’em, trucks are a big part of the aftermarket community and lifted trucks aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
But for the love of all that is holy, make safety a priority and have some manners, lifted truck owners.
Did you see any of these appalling builds at SEMA? Let me know in the comments below.
