Bruiser Conversions now offers our signature, fully integrated, LS3 engine conversion system for the 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler. Bruiser has yet again combined the legendary power and reliability of the GM Performance LS family of engines with the go-anywhere capability of the Jeep Wrangler.
Bruiser's LS3 engine conversions system for the Jeep JL Wrangler maintains the original equipment manufacturers (OEM) functionality of all vehicle safety, comfort, and on-board diagnostic systems. All instruments, indicators, gauges, and powertrain control systems will work in the same manner as they did when the vehicle rolled off the assembly line. Cruise control, hill descent mode, tip start, and tap shift systems are fully integrated with the Bruiser LS3 engine conversion system.
The ZF Torqueflite 8 automatic transmission, when equipped in the JL Wrangler, has a rated input torque capacity of 561 ft-lb. This transmission has been in use across the MOPAR fleet behind the 5.7L and 6.4L Hemi engines and has a proven history of performance and durability. Bruiser has engineered the necessary adapters to connect the Bruiser GM Performance LS3 engine conversion system with the factory installed 8-speed transmission; all transmission functions have been integrated with the Jeep's OEM software and control systems.

I want to thank the Bruiser Team for turning my 2004 Jeep TJ into a one of a kind LS3 swapped TJ. After a few phone conversations with Jeff going over what I wanted/needed it was an easy decision to send it out to Bruiser. I had originally planned to just do the LS3 swap, but after visiting the shop and hanging out with the guys for the day checking out all the jeeps under construction, my engine swap quickly turned into a complete redo. The Baja style roll cage/tire carrier turned out awesome! The guys at the shop were very helpful in steering me in the right direction on what additional changes I wanted to add to the build. I have had my jeep back for a week now and it drives so much better than it did before with a hell of a lot more horsepower. It’s definitely a head turner!...
To make it short and sweet, Jeff and his crew over at Bruiser Conversions hit a homerun with their LS conversion for the Jeep JK! I personally believe it is by far the best LS conversion on the market. When we here at PSC Motorsports decided to do a V8 swap in one of our new 2015 JK's, I knew I wanted a LS3. We have done the Hemi thing in the past and this time I had my heart set on a LS3. So when it came time to pull the trigger on the project we hooked up with Jeff Garland and Bruiser Conversions. He has come up with a very different approach to the JK / LS swap, and it is ingenuous. Fellow off road industry insiders had been telling me how well the Bruiser Conversion works and well, I am a believer! I freaking love this Jeep and it's all due to the flawless LS3 conversion. The crafts...
No Jeep is the same and everybody likes to customize his or hers own. As so did I. I started with a used black stock Rubicon unlimited out of 2012. The reason for this was the new transmission that they introduced that year. After the first upgrades (bumpers, lift and tire's) it was time for the more serious upgrade, an engine swap. When you are pulling a wrangler over the mountains in Colorado with a stock 3.6L V6 engine, you get the feeling you are Fred Flintstone. The nice 2.8L CRD would be a nice help with that, but unfortunately you can only get those in Europe. What to do? We all love the big V8's. So the next trip would be to your local Jeep off-road shop and swap that stock engine for a nice 5.7 or 6.4 Hemi. Now just wait there for a moment. Let's browse the internet for a momen...
I have had the pleasure of wheeling with the Bruiser team for many years, as well as driving their conversions. The trucks handle great both on and off-road and their power is something you just won't find anywhere else. People can't help but look, gawk and ask a ton of questions because they are so unique in both their looks and performance. Plus, the entire team is made up of some of my favorite people to be around with due to their positive attitudes and constant desire to make everything function at the best of it's potential.
I've got a 430hp LS3 installed in my 2012 JK and I love it! I'm running 37's on one ton axles and the factory V6 was not enough to move the thing down the road. I found myself not wanting to drive my Jeep anymore... Until I found Bruiser Conversions. Their LS3 conversion woke the Jeep up and turned it into a monster!!! I daily drive my Jeep now because I enjoy driving it so much. It sounds and feels amazing. The most fun part is red light racing little sports cars and seeing the look on their faces when you blow the doors off them in a lifted Jeep. The most amazing part of the conversion, however, is how it just works. All functions work as they did from the factory, there aren't any funny warning lights or messages on the dashboard. The A/C blows cold. The factory tap shift works. Noth...
