Since 2020 has been such an... unusual year, our annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas for SEMA show did not happen. Instead, we spent the week in front of our computers, watching pre-recorded vehicle reveals, product demonstrations, and panels describing what's next in the automotive aftermarket world.

We all took copious notes, reviewed spec sheets, and found some pretty cool new offerings from a variety of manufacturers.

To start with, these are the items we covered on the Toyota Cruisers & Trucks website during the show:

Day 1 On the Web

Toyota Press Conference and 4WDTO "Overland" Tacoma

Since Toyota doesn't have any new platforms to show off this year, they partnered with our friends over at the traditional 4WD Toyota Owner Magazine to show off an Overland style Tacoma build.

Day 2 On the Web

Patriot Campers launched a new trailer into the North American Market, and perhaps more importantly, showed off their amazing 70 Series Land Cruiser Builds. So gorgeous!

Day 3 On the Web

New products from Go Rhino, Warrior Products, and Supreme Suspensions built specifically for several Toyota platforms.

While some of these items are not the most exciting you'll see, it's great to know that our chose adventure platforms will have great aftermarket support for years to come.

For the remainder of the 'show', we took notes on some of the most interesting new items:

The Warn HUB Receiver & App ( won a Best Off Road/4WD Product Award from SEMA, and we couldn't agree more. This device takes wireless winch control to the next level, by allowing you to use your phone to control your Warn winch via bluetooth, from up to 100' away.  The system is IP68 waterproof certified, and supports both iOS and Android devices.           

ARB Fridge Power Pack

The innovators over at ARB have developed a way to make your fridge/freezer even more useful, it can now run when away from the vehicle! The Fridge Power Pack features a 15Ah lithium battery packaged in a compact housing and includes rubberized magnets ,so it can be attached to the side of various ARB fridge/freezers.

The Fridge Power Pack is easy to use; once attached to the side of your fridge just plug it into the fridge’s 12V DC power inlet, press a button to turn it on and your fridge will run for up to 18 hours (depending on unit and outside temperatures).

Baxter Performance has been creating spin-on and remote oil filter mounts for years, and their new options for Toyota engines are spot-on.

Starting in December 2020, the 501 series adapters come in both Remote and Spin on versions. These universal adapters fit Toyota and Lexus engines from 2.0l up to 5.7l (with an available extension) and will make changing your oil much more efficient, while retaining more oil post-filtration for better oil supply and pressure at startup.

We've always been fans of low & hidden storage, and this year BuiltRight has the Tacoma taken care of with their Bedside Rack. The 4 Piece kit for 2005-Current Tacoma works with all MOLLE/PALS accessories in addition to universal slots for all kinds of storage possibilities. Each piece is laser cut and CNC punched, and black powder coated for lasting durability. All installation hardware is provided as well.
