I have known Jeff for 7 years, so when it was time to build my 2014 JKU into the LEGEND2.0 with a LS3 480 HP hot cam he was my first call for engine swap advice. Being 10 hours apart, I planned to have the work done closer... but when Jeff said they could do an LS swap in a week, I had to put it to the test. Anyone that could swap that fast with confidence clearly has their ducks in a row. Sure enough, a week later I was headed down to pick her up! Jeff walked me through the numerous custom machined components proprietary to his conversions; some serious hardware! His engineering, his team, and their overall commitment to quality all came through. Doing burnouts as soon as I got back to Charlotte! Thanks Jeff!
Like many jeep owners I set out to build the ultimate go anywhere jeep to provide amazing family wheeling excursions. Initially built was a mild mod JKU, however the anemic 3.6L became the 'weak link' so I sough out an engine conversion. After determining the LS3 as the most optimum power plant, I then began to search for a builder/installer and chose a local SEMA Jeep Builder. As I explained to the selected builder, 'there are 2 ways to do things, the right way and the wrong' no in-between. Unfortunately for me that selected builder had very little integrity and built a very expensive paperweight. After those in the Jeep community found out what happened many stepped in to assist with my build. We began an extensive rebuild, and we chose the industry leader in LS3 Conversions, Bruiser ...
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!...
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...
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 andNaples, Fl
