When it comes to Texas everything is bigger and better... Lone Star Throwdown, now affectionately know as the "SEMA of the South", has become one of the largest car/truck shows and definitely a "can't miss event" if you're located in the south.
Trailing a couple of months after the more formal SEMA show in November each year, LST seems to be the place where all automotive owners meet up to hang out and kick off the official show season of the year. Held each Februrary in Conroe, Texas the show started in 2012 and continues to grow both in vendors, spectators, and participating vehicles. This year's show was capped at 2,000 pre-registered vehicles and sold out weeks before the show even started.
While we missed getting a vendor booth this year, we were able to go and participate in the fun and we enjoyed seeing lots of Bodyguard bumpers owners there.... over 30 trucks in fact! Special shout out goes to Extreme Offroad, All Out Offroad, BTS Customs, McGaughy's Suspension, LFTD LVLD, Specialty Forged Wheels, and American Force Wheels for all having Bodyguard bumpers trucks featured in their areas. Below is a collection of some of those show trucks, and I hope we haven't missed including anyone.
See you at the next show!
