I've been studying on it. Would be a good engine package. Trying to figure out if it'll bolt up to the later Mopar 6 speed manual transmission. I think that would be a good setup in a series. At that point, you are looking at using a Forbyn transfer case which is pricey but might as well cut the crap.

The Chevy 2.0T still seems to be a better option for a series. Bolt up transmission and engine cost is in the neighborhood. Also stupid power.

Yes - working with another company on the second 2.8 we have to go into a S2 109 Dormobile bodied build. I think it would be a great setup for the owner who wanted all the aesthetics of a Series truck but the ease of maintenance and "any driver in the family' usability of the R2.8 mated to an auto-box.

Default Motor Mounts

Are any of the builders out there going to sell a weld in motor mount for the Defender? I hate recreating the wheel on something like this.

The frame side mounts will differ with what transmision you use ie that is what dictates engine position fore and aft.

Doug, does changing the fore aft position change the basic shape of the mount or just the position of where the mount goes? With that said the truck you are currently building seems like it would be popular way to go with 6L80E and Marks adapter. Would that be something you would make a run of mounts for interested parties? As I've watched this build you are doing and seen the quality of the parts you are using, I think you would have a good market willing to buy a kit that included the additional parts to perform a 2.8 swap.

No it doesn't, Dick.
