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 decided to go with the Bruiser Conversions LS3 conversion kit after the turbo on my 3.6 factory engine blew up. I am so glad that I did, the engineering is unbelievable, everything is "plug & play". The engine and every piece around the engine fits perfectly, plus no more turbo lag!!! My friend and I did the complete job of removing the old engine and installing the new LS3 motor in 3 8-hour days. With a turn of the key it started right up and purred like a kitten. After driving it for 400 miles, I changed the oil and then drove it down to Florida, 1500 miles in 24 hours with no problems. Everybody that sees the engine compartment says that it looks like it's from the factory. When I'm asked where I got it from of course I tell them Bruiser Conversions in Cleartwater, FL. I highly rec...
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 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.
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...
