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.

My name is Tygh Brogdon, I called Bruiser Conversions to make me a custom built "one of a kind" Jeep JK Crew. I am a picky person and wanted everything perfect, from the factory rake, to the axles, to the wheels, to the tires, to the interior, to the overall height! You see how picky I am? I had an entire checklist of items that I wanted accomplished. Jeff invited me down and assured me that he could and would do his best to achieve everything I was looking for. I showed up at his shop with a brand new 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, it had 1,100 miles on it. He was a bit surprised at some of my requests but low and behold HE DELIVERED!! I was communicating with him once or twice a week until the project was complete and then more often as the delivery date neared. He delivered to my door...
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.
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...
January 3, 2015 I had a LS3-430HP Corvette motor installed in my Jeep by Bruiser Conversions. Many have asked how I like it, how long did it take, what's it like, how was fit and finish, etc. Saturday January 3rd I drove from Naples to Clearwater. Met Jeff at Jeff's Jeep Yard/Bruiser Conversions where I was given a complete tour and filled with a ton of knowledge. Jeff will blow your mind with his passion and expertise! Left the Jeep in Bruiser's hands and returned to pick it up on Friday Jan. 9th. Yes, that is correct - One week for the conversion. And not just the conversion, they painted my rear wheel wells. Needless to say, I was like a kid in a candy store ready for the first drive! I'm pretty particular about cleanliness and was pleasantly surprised to see how clean the jeep was w...
In the last 10 months Dixie 4 Wheel Drive has installed 6 Bruiser Conversions LS3 "Do It Yourself Kit" motor conversions. At first we didn't know much about Bruiser Conversions since we are from Utah and they're from Florida. I had heard a few good things about Bruisers, but usually East coast service is hard to keep in touch with. However, with Bruisers it was different. From a shop stand point, we were excited to hear that their motor conversion kit was one of the best JK V8's kits on the market. Since we had done several different Hemi and LS conversions before, we were anxious to install the "Do It Yourself Kit" into our 2015 SEMA build. Once the motor conversion showed up, we were super excited to open the crate up and see the install kit. The wiring harness and front accessory dr...
