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...
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!
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
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 ...
