Wrangler Dreams: Customizer Ready to Make Your Ultimate Jeep
Florida-based Bruiser Conversions fills the truck-sized void in the market prior to the arrival of the upcoming JL Wrangler pickup.
After almost three decades of waiting for its return, Jeep will finally bring a truck model back into its lineup for the 2019 model year, based upon the new JL Wrangler. Details about its return include the possibility of a diesel engine option, removable doors and fold-down windshield like the non-truck Wrangler, and even rumors that it will be called the Scrambler, a name last appearing on the Jeep CJ-8.
Of course, the long gap between the 1992 Comanche and 2019 JL Wrangler Truck means a lot of pent-up demand. And with demand comes the opportunity for supply. GearJunkie knows of one such supplier: Clearwater, Florida-based Bruiser Conversions.
This group of Jeep enthusiasts have worked their magic on many a JK Wrangler, from conversion kits for DIY types, to taking in Wranglers for a full transformation into the truck of their owners’ dreams. Out of the four conversions offered, three of them will throw a bed on the back of your 2007 through 2018 JK. The Super Cab transforms the two-door Wrangler into an extended cab truck, while the JK Crew takes your Wrangler from Unlimited to Unlimited times infinity with stepside and fleetside beds available.
And of course, for those who desire a classic look to their modern JK, there’s the Honcho. This retromodern pickup uses the Gladiator front clip from Chris Durham Motorsports to bring memories of the Sixties and Seventies back to your New ’10s JK. All of Bruiser’s trucks can also receive new V8 power, too, from fire-breathing Hemis and dieselpunk Cummins engines, to LS3 swaps guaranteed to break a few brains.
For a few thousand dollars plus the cost of a JK (unless you already bought yours), you can finally have the truck Jeep hasn’t made in years.
