Skyjacked: The ridiculous lifted pickup trucks and SUVs of SEMA 2016

Sitting anywhere remotely near the ground is so overrated. Why not upgrade your ride to something that flies a bit higher? These are some of our favorite lifted pickups and SUVs from the 2016 SEMA show.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Is this a house or a building? I feel like you need a permit to create a standing structure this large.

In case you didn't think lifting a truck was complicated, a peek under the body should rectify that.

There weren't too many lifted import trucks, so this Tacoma was a bit of a rare bird.

Many of the lifted trucks at SEMA were white, for reasons I cannot ascertain.

See? More white trucks. This brand-new Ford Super Duty looks pretty terrifying.

If the Taco wasn't large enough for you, how about a lifted Tundra?

You could house a family of five in the area under this truck's body.

I had to add "SUVs" to the gallery title because somebody skyjacked this Cadillac Escalade and I couldn't pass up a picture.
