It's been a while since Moby's been to SEMA and really for a good reason. Moby is almost 10 years old, is far from the new and shiny Jeep that he once was and let's face it, he's been used hard and has the scars to prove it. Needless to say, when Cindy and I were asked by Mel from Off Road Evolution if we could display Moby at the Dynatrac Baja 1000 Experience, we were a bit surprised but more than happy to oblige being that EVO 1 wouldn't be able to make it due prep work it still needs before the actual race. Anyway, it's been an uphill battle but, we've been working hard to get him cleaned up and ready for the show and, here are a few pics of what he looks like now.

Being that Moby will be in the Dynatrac Baja 1000 Experience display, we made sure to clean up his axles.

Of course, being that he will be showing at SEMA, we had to make sure he was stickered up for the occasion.

So long as you don't look too closely, I think you'll agree that Moby still looks great. And really, he's still got it where it counts and that's all that should really matter, right? :D

If you're one of the lucky few who will be attending the 2015 SEMA Show, Moby will be on display at 62109 which is outside and out next to the Dynatrac Trailer. :cool:

Wow that's awesome! Congrats to you for being able to show him off! Who cares about his age, it's the fact that he is one of the very few used and abused jeeps there which makes it great!

Looks awesome and congrats! Can't get over how awesome moby looks with the half doors. Has me thinking about half doors for after the winter.

Congratulations Moby. Is Evo1 entering the Baja 1000 ?

If Moby could smile, he'd have a big grin from all the TLC. Rig looks great and he sure looks SEMA booth ready. [emoji106][emoji41]

It's too late this year, but I need to see if I can call on some connections and try to go next year. That would be a blast to be there in person.

Cant wait for some trollbags to see the clean axles and call Moby a mall crawler. :cheesy::cheesy::cheesy:

That's cool that you were asked to show off a 'more used' vehicle at SEMA. The proof is in the pudding on video of what those axles will hold up to with your Jeep. What better way for a company to say, "You want to know about our axles? Here you go."

I don't know how that rig looks so nice with all the places it has been. I have watched the videos, must have a stunt double, ha ha. Probably just a great driver. Congrats on going to SEMA

Awesome, congrats! There may be a few dings in Moby, but that thing is still a Beast! I always find it refreshing at shows to see rigs you can tell are used and not just trailer queens!

Congrats Eddie and Cindy on getting the nod from Mel to fill in for Evo1. Just goes to show you how iconic Moby is in the jeep industry. Secondly, it is awesome to have a tried-and-true jk there amongst all the starwood style jeeps. Great showcase of proven products that have definately been put to the test.

I think they should use used rigs in the show. After all aren't we all looking for proven products. Congrats man!

For me, Moby is iconic. I think that a lot of people in Jeep circles will have heard of the name. It is no surprise to me that people at SEMA want to see this vehicle.

I just love the stance of the rig as well as his abilities. The videos of Moby are a big reason I plan to have ORE work on my upcoming build in 2016. It was a hard choice to hold off on everything, but saving up my money to make sure everything is right will be worth it. Eddie, Cindy and Moby have all been a big influence in my purchase decisions.

That's awesome Eddie!! Can't wait to see your coverage and see Moby turn a few heads! Oh and I loved Snake Eyes btw! Great video mi amigo!

LOL!! Thanks guys, we're happy to be taking Moby to SEMA but you have to remember, it's a show dedicated to "new" products that the aftermarket industry is releasing. Most of the products on Moby have been around for a while now and tested to death. If there's something to be said about Moby, it's that the products on him work and work well :yup:

We've been meaning to have this done for a while and with Moby headed for SEMA, it was time to finally replace the windshield (yet again).

How fun. Reminds me of the old saloon/hotel we stayed at in Silverton recently. Pretty brave to sleep in a room with murder history. You guys sleep tight and hope you don't have any unexpected spooky guests lol.

Did you give him a once over when you got there or just leave all things collected (Bugs, dirt, etc..) from the trip to Vegas to show how SEMA rigs can be real rigs? Wait I think I have that backwards, real rigs can be SEMA rigs.
