I've been a Jeep enthusiast most of my life, so when it came to building my "forever" Jeep I knew that finding the right builder was everything. From my very first interaction with Bruiser I felt like much more than a client. I immediately felt like I had a friend in the industry who was helping me fulfill my vision to create a fully customized, one off, SEMA worthy rig. Having a family of 6 a stock JKU just doesn't get it done, especially when it comes to camping off grid and exploring remote areas as my family and I often do. Bruiser worked with me every step of the build from concept to completion. They steered me away from pitfalls and educated me on innovative ways to achieve what ended up being one of the most amazing builds I have ever been fortunate enough to stand beside, and I...
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...
Jeff I want to personally thank you and your awesome crew at Bruiser Conversions for all the work and help with our OX Locker project JK. Even for the work we did ourselves, drawing from your experience has been a big help and time saver, not enough guys like you in the business. FYI, recently I had conversation with Tom the owner over at PSC Motorsports about how happy he was with the LS3 conversion you did on his JK, he convinced me to pull the trigger on it. Looking forward to topping this project off with your LS3 conversion.
I decided to go with the Bruiser Conversions LS3 conversion kit after the turbo on my 3.6 factory engine blew up. I am so glad that I did, the engineering is unbelievable, everything is "plug & play". The engine and every piece around the engine fits perfectly, plus no more turbo lag!!! My friend and I did the complete job of removing the old engine and installing the new LS3 motor in 3 8-hour days. With a turn of the key it started right up and purred like a kitten. After driving it for 400 miles, I changed the oil and then drove it down to Florida, 1500 miles in 24 hours with no problems. Everybody that sees the engine compartment says that it looks like it's from the factory. When I'm asked where I got it from of course I tell them Bruiser Conversions in Cleartwater, FL. I highly rec...
Jeff, I am really enjoying this Jeep! The attention to detail, knowledge base, advice and professionalism you provided in helping me put this together “the right way” was invaluable. The turn around time was amazingly fast and your conversion product is top notch. I now have all the power I need to do the things I want to do in style. I get a dopamine rush every time I hit the gas pedal! Tons of fun! Many thanks to you and your team in helping me with this build. Proud owner Nick Holman Oakton, VA & Naples, FL
