Maybe I missed it but there is not a ready-to-go "kit" for this, right? As I understand it, this conversion is still a lot of fabbing, non-LR drivetrains, etc.

That is my understanding after seeing some of Uncle Doug's work on the Beta.
But I think it's Cummins--->beefyR380--->LT230 for now, right?
So all Rover after the engine.

Kit should be avail soon.
Delay is on me. Need to insure the mods we made to the cooling system components
fit perfectly before ordering quantity. Kits will be offered with or without the special sauce radiator and intercooler.
Once we have finalized any tweaks the components will be stocked and available from a favorite retailer.
DIYers will need to purchase their own engine from Cummins, and transmission (no bell housing) and tcase from Ashcroft.

2 of the next three on our calendar are to get a/c as well. One will also utilize the Ministry of Defender retro fit puma dash with his new integrated a/c and heat system on a South African built truck we converted to lhd.
Lots to do around here.


Still focused on getting some of these other trucks out
of here. Three tithonus v8 conversions. Two were ground up builds with all steel galvanized.
There is a light in the tunnel, just hope its not another train.

Just a heads up, the $7500 sale price avail through Alloy and Grit, Expedition Portal, and directly from Cummins ends June 30th and the price goes back to 9k.
