Super Street Magazine Feature

Awesome writeup in Superstreet magazine from the Autocon SF show!

SEMA 2016

Smokey will be at SEMA 2016 in the Autometer booth front and center on Hotrod Alley. Come check out all the new diesel specific stuff they are offering, and the truck too!

Autocon San Francisco Show

Smokeys sponsor, Toyo tires invited us to Autocon SF to display Smokey in their booth. I was very surprised at the super positive response for the truck since it was a mostly JDM and Euro crowd. Smokey took home the trophies for Best Engine, Best Ford, and Best Truck. Stoked!
