Bruiser Conversions 6×6 Is A Six-Wheel Jeep Wrangler With A 450HP LS3 V8

Six-wheeled vehicles have always been favored among enthusiasts not just for their off-roading capability, but their no-nonsense look, too. The thing is, there aren’t that many around.

Right now, buyers can choose between thet Mercedes-Benz G63, Kahn Flying Huntsman and Hennessey VelociRaptor. Those looking into something more extreme can go ahead and order the Devel Sixteen, provided they can swallow its heavy sticker price, but what about those looking for something more down to Earth like, say, a Jeep?

Well, except for a Chinese conversion from a couple of years ago, there wasn’t really anything in store. Until recently, that is, because a company called Bruiser Conversions decided to take a Jeep Wrangler JK and turn it into a six-wheeled beast.

The vehicle was already presented at last year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and turned heads at different events since, but it only recently came to our attention, so let’s see what it’s all about.

For starters, it has a longer body to accommodate the extra axle, an open bed at the rear with oak wood, increased ground clearance, special suspension, winch at the front, and special alloy wheels shod with Mickey Thompson off-road rubber. Thus, it can conquer some very steep slopes, on paper at least.

Other features that are worth mentioning include the matte green finish that covers the exterior, new side mirrors with LED turn signals, steel bumpers and an optional light bar mounted on the A pillars.

Bruiser Conversions can modify any JL, JK, and TJ Wrangler to various specs, not just the 6×6, and apart from the LS3, it can also shoehorn either a Hemi V8 or a Cummins Turbo diesel in the engine bay.

The piece du résistance, however, lies in the engine compartment, where the tuner decided to go for a GM-sourced LS3 V8 engine, which makes 480 horsepower, and an Atlas 3.0 transfer case.

    Nice. I do wonder if it’s really capable to handle off-roading?

  • Well unless you live in the desert or Australian Army, I always found owning 6×6 is pointless.

      So is owning a 1000+hp performance car, but that doesnt stop people from wanting one!

      • You’re right, I mean you can always get an actual light tank for 25K GBP.

    Back in 2016, Wild Boar Off Road, build the 6X6 Helldog of a 2012 Wrangler, thing is a Beast with a 745 Hellcat Horsepower V8.

    Looks absolutely awesome. But is it just looks or is this thing truly more capable as a result of all these wheels? Also, 450hp doesnt seem like much at all for something this big and likely very heavy.

  • Richard Sloman

    These guys should be taken outside at dawn and shot, how can they put a Vette motor in when there are Hellcat engines and Hemis to do that job… Sacrilege…

  • Bash

    NICE!!, now paint it all black and call it a….ummm… “Black-tank”…. 😉
