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...
I've got a 430hp LS3 installed in my 2012 JK and I love it! I'm running 37's on one ton axles and the factory V6 was not enough to move the thing down the road. I found myself not wanting to drive my Jeep anymore... Until I found Bruiser Conversions. Their LS3 conversion woke the Jeep up and turned it into a monster!!! I daily drive my Jeep now because I enjoy driving it so much. It sounds and feels amazing. The most fun part is red light racing little sports cars and seeing the look on their faces when you blow the doors off them in a lifted Jeep. The most amazing part of the conversion, however, is how it just works. All functions work as they did from the factory, there aren't any funny warning lights or messages on the dashboard. The A/C blows cold. The factory tap shift works. Noth...
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.
As a manufacturer of Jeep parts, our company Jeeps are our sales tools. We are very careful when choosing the modifications we make because our vehicle's performance is a direct reflection of our company when on the trail. It is of paramount importance that our vehicles are on the cutting edge and mechanical failures are kept to a minimum. So when the time came to upgrade the power plant in one of our 2014 JK with a reliable and powerful LS motor there was only one company in the United States to call, Bruiser Conversions. What Jeff and his team were able to do in 6 days is mind blowing and the finished product is FACTORY perfect. Every nut and bolt checked and not a single issue. We would recommend Bruiser and Jeff's entire team to anyone in the market who demands excellence in perform...
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.
