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...
Savvy Off Road is know for their winning KOH Jeeps and lightweight armor. When we chose to install a LS3 in our 2014 JK Unlimited, there was only one choice. Bruiser Conversions! The LS3 conversion for the JKU is the best available kit. No double computer or harness to take up space and maintain. We have seen our fair share of double harness kits leave the owners very frustrated. The batteries would go dead on them frequently and not all of the features of the JK were available like OEM. The Bruiser Conversion on the other hand uses the OEM Jeep computer and transmission so everything functions like it is from the factory except you now have 430+ HP. We install the best of the best in everything we do. Bruiser Conversions is the only way to go!
I met Jeff Garland at Easter Jeep Safari in 2015. I had an LS conversion done on my 2012 JKU by another company with a laundry list of issues, and was looking at one of Bruiser Conversions swaps. Jeff leaned in and began to tell me how wonderful the LS swap was. I was less than responsive as he explained how wonderful his swap was. I explained that I already had the swap done by another company, and was less than impressed. Much to my surprise Jeff described several of my issues to a "T" without me telling him anything. As we visited Jeff told me how bad he felt about my experience, and how he could correct the issues. I swallowed hard, and put my trust in one more individual who said that they could make it work. Jeff arraigned shipping, which is no easy task from where I lived, and th...
Being in the off-road industry myself, I am very picky about where my Jeep is worked on. Add to that the major work of an engine swap and you quickly realize that trust in the shop is EVERYTHING! Jeff and the crew are at the top of their game! The attention to detail is unmatched and the quality could not be any better. Simply put... they know what they are doing. Add to that the friendly service and you have a winning combination. Thanks again guys!
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...
