By any measure, Jeep’s vehicles don’t need any extra help in tackling the great outdoors. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be improved upon — made tougher, beefier, and a hell of a lot more badass looking. Or at least that’s the school of thought over at Bruiser Conversions, who have just unveiled their new take on the Jeep JKU 4-door they’re calling the ‘Honcho.’
Available with your choice of a GM Performance LS3 or Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel engine, this monstrous SUV is built to tackle even the most extreme terrain. And that’s all the more evident when you consider its custom bed-mounted roll cage, electronically locking differentials on both the front and rear axles, Teraflex suspension and shocks, monstrous BFGoodrich Krawler TA tires, WARN winch, and more. With all this gear, it’s hard to say what the best part of this beast is. If we had to pick, however, it would probably be the throwback Wagoneer-style front end — an elegant touch for an otherwise monstrous ride. Get one for yourself starting at $40,000.
