Like Digger last year, Max D has gotten the full SpectraChrome treatment and is in their booth:

Bigfoot is also at the Firestone booth, as their FB page shows (https://www.facebook.com/bigfoot4x4inc)

Hopefully more trucks pop up as the week goes on.

Looks to be a new chassis build as well. Neils in australia, Chucks in europe, Tom's in europe. Looks like a new el torro replacement chassis. Plus why would they weld sway bars on just for a spectra chrome deal, not to mention everything looks very fresh and new.

I cut through the Sunset Station parking lot quite often, and I kept wondering why there was a Feld truck with a Max D anniversary sticker on it and trailer in the truck lot behind the casino...now it makes sense haha I saw something about Bad Habit is in town for SEMA as well

I thought it might have been the stunt truck or Chuck's El Toro, but the cradle is wider on this one. Regardless, that body looks sick!

EDIT: Just saw on Tom Meent's FB page that it indeed is a new build. "Thanks to Dan at Spectra Chrome this new chassis is a real head turner ! More on the build later, I promise you this is a exciting week for Team Max D with lots of 2014 annoucements !" so there's that.

I saw the FB post, too. I wonder if this week might be confirmation that the truck's permanent name is Max D, since various merchandise (http://www.fathead.com/entertainment/monster-trucks/maximum-destruction-wall-decal/?src=browse) has been using the spike truck with a modified 10th Anniversary logo:

One of the other announcements is probably Morgan Kane driving the Max D truck left open by Kreg leaving

The sway bars and the front tubing sticking out further than the rest of the chassis makes it look like Chuck Werner's current El Toro Loco chassis. This now makes me wonder if this new chassis is for Chuck Werner in El Toro Loco to replace his current chassis?

From what I was told, his contract with Feld was up, so I guess he's going out to Australia to work on his truck out there

For anyone interested, it looks like Max D got the chrome wheel treatment at SEMA this year like Digger did last year. Here's an album with a couple shots of the truck, plus some other cool looking pieces from the convention:
