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!
In the last 10 months Dixie 4 Wheel Drive has installed 6 Bruiser Conversions LS3 "Do It Yourself Kit" motor conversions. At first we didn't know much about Bruiser Conversions since we are from Utah and they're from Florida. I had heard a few good things about Bruisers, but usually East coast service is hard to keep in touch with. However, with Bruisers it was different. From a shop stand point, we were excited to hear that their motor conversion kit was one of the best JK V8's kits on the market. Since we had done several different Hemi and LS conversions before, we were anxious to install the "Do It Yourself Kit" into our 2015 SEMA build. Once the motor conversion showed up, we were super excited to open the crate up and see the install kit. The wiring harness and front accessory dr...
To make it short and sweet, Jeff and his crew over at Bruiser Conversions hit a homerun with their LS conversion for the Jeep JK! I personally believe it is by far the best LS conversion on the market. When we here at PSC Motorsports decided to do a V8 swap in one of our new 2015 JK's, I knew I wanted a LS3. We have done the Hemi thing in the past and this time I had my heart set on a LS3. So when it came time to pull the trigger on the project we hooked up with Jeff Garland and Bruiser Conversions. He has come up with a very different approach to the JK / LS swap, and it is ingenuous. Fellow off road industry insiders had been telling me how well the Bruiser Conversion works and well, I am a believer! I freaking love this Jeep and it's all due to the flawless LS3 conversion. The crafts...
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...
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.
