A V8-Powered, 6-Wheeled Jeep Wrangler Just Got Interesting
There's something about increased wheel counts that make us stop and pay attention. Perhaps, it's because it looks so unusual to find a road car with six wheels, or maybe it's because it's highly-technical, and requires a lot of engineering skills to do.
Whatever the case, Bruiser Conversions of Clearwater was up for the challenge--and managed to turn an ordinary Jeep Wrangler into a brutish 6x6 road warrior. And the result was truly amazing.
Bruiser, which is popular for its clean conversion kits and full vehicle transformations, introduced this beast at the 2017 SEMA show. Using a Jeep Wrangler 4-door as its base, the company extended the rear to create a truck-style bed and extra rear axle. These rear axles are custom-made Ford nine-inchers that come with Detroit lockers and 4.88 gears.
The engine is a 6.2 liter V-8--a General Motor LS3 unit--while its power is distributed by an Atlas Twin Stick transfer case. Bruiser also installed six 40-inch tires on 17-inch beadlock wheels to make its 450 hp roll down effortlessly,
The Jeep Wrangler's front also used Fox coilovers and a four-link travel suspension system. There are more Fox suspensions placed at the back plus, of course, adjustable track bars to make that off-road adventure much more interesting.
This is the first time Bruiser created a six-wheeler Jeep, and we're actually pleased with the end product. It's well-made, and looks ready to crush anything hat comes down its path.
