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!
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.
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 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!...
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...
