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...
January 3, 2015 I had a LS3-430HP Corvette motor installed in my Jeep by Bruiser Conversions. Many have asked how I like it, how long did it take, what's it like, how was fit and finish, etc. Saturday January 3rd I drove from Naples to Clearwater. Met Jeff at Jeff's Jeep Yard/Bruiser Conversions where I was given a complete tour and filled with a ton of knowledge. Jeff will blow your mind with his passion and expertise! Left the Jeep in Bruiser's hands and returned to pick it up on Friday Jan. 9th. Yes, that is correct - One week for the conversion. And not just the conversion, they painted my rear wheel wells. Needless to say, I was like a kid in a candy store ready for the first drive! I'm pretty particular about cleanliness and was pleasantly surprised to see how clean the jeep was w...
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!
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...
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!...
