There are a whole host of custom Wranglers making their appearance at this years SEMA. One of them is this highly bespoke JL that's been heavily modified by Bruiser Conversions. Its powered by a Corvette V8 LS3, in either 450 or 500hp versions. Its got beefy Dana 60 axels and a stretched chassis to accommodate a customized bed. Do you guys like what's been done here or is it too much?

I'm a fan of everything but the extension. I don't feel like messing around with the vehicles dynamics is necessary, but I understand that this is a one off conversion. I do think it also would have made more sense to go with an engine that provides more low end torque like the Hemi or LT1.

I realized that for myself after seeing behind the screens footage of vehicles going from stock to fully built in a matter of weeks and ready for SEMA at the very last minute.
No surprise that its just show worthy, nothing else left for them to prove.

You guys have brought up some solid points, but show cars like this are merely meant to demonstrate what's possible on a vehicle, regardless of the added capability that it provides. The Hemi would obviously be the better candidate if they were looking to really add to its off road performance.
