    I have a LS with the 4l60E trans in my brute with 37's and 4:56's. works great and lots of parts out there for that swap. I have run the same setup in a CJ for 10 years without an issue. The issue in a brute is the gauges. You can make the stock ones work but that means your running two computers.
    Thanks and that is good info! I actually really want to run the Auto Meter TJ gauge pod, with C2 gauges. I do like the LS, I'm just having an issue with "branding".

    Thanks for the info, Ben

      a recent issue of Jp magazine has an article on a TJ w/ LS swap (I think) and they used some custom gauges that replaces the stock ones. Ill look for it tonight.

      Update - I think it was the auto meter pod - duh

        Yep, I've got that issue. Auto Meter makes a TJ garage panel now that is nice looking.

          What about the 6.4 truck motor. All the low end grunt and cheaper than an SRT 6.4 in the junkyards.

            Speedhut gauges

            I used the autometer dash insert with speed hut gauges. Speed is GPS driven. I agree on branding, but Jeep did not build a Brute. Its already a mix breed.
