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 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've been a Jeep enthusiast most of my life, so when it came to building my "forever" Jeep I knew that finding the right builder was everything. From my very first interaction with Bruiser I felt like much more than a client. I immediately felt like I had a friend in the industry who was helping me fulfill my vision to create a fully customized, one off, SEMA worthy rig. Having a family of 6 a stock JKU just doesn't get it done, especially when it comes to camping off grid and exploring remote areas as my family and I often do. Bruiser worked with me every step of the build from concept to completion. They steered me away from pitfalls and educated me on innovative ways to achieve what ended up being one of the most amazing builds I have ever been fortunate enough to stand beside, and I...
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 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...
