Bruiser Honcho Is One Hardcore Jeep Wrangler That Ain’t Afraid Of Anything

Say the name ‘Bruiser Conversions’ and, if you’ve been following the tuning scene or are a fan of Jeep’s icon, the first thing that you’ll think of is probably the Wrangler 6×6.

The stunning creation that goes against other six-wheeled SUVs was shown last year at SEMA in Las Vegas, and welcomes a lot of custom parts that make it a true off-road monster.

Now, Bruiser Conversions have unveiled the Honcho, which is yet another Jeep Wrangler. Only this one has ‘just’ two axles, just like Merc did with its 6×6 and 4×4 G-Wagen.

The new Bruiser Honcho is one serious ride, with a retro-styled front end, steel bumpers, winch, custom bed with integrated roll-bar, new suspension and a very generous ground clearance. It also gets a roof-mounted auxiliary light bar, new rims wrapped in huge off-road tires, a removable hard top said to use the factory freedom panels, and additional storage inside, behind the rear seats that can fold down.

Bruiser Conversions haven’t cut down on power either, as this Jeep Wrangler is coming with a choice of two engines. The first is the LS3 V8 from General Motors, while those that favor torque and more down-to-earth fuel economy can opt for the Cummings turbodiesel. Both units have been updated and the petrol burner is apparently capable of putting down 500 PS (493 hp / 368 kW), or up to 700 PS (690 hp / 515 kW) if the owner wants an upgrade.

    “Cummings turbodiesel”? Really? This is the second article I have read, and the second time I have wondered if you have children writing your articles. Lack of respect +5

    Get some better writers/proofers… please?
