I would do a 6BT in that scenario. It has become very popular in the UK and there are companies doing most of the conversion parts needed.

No. Its not an Icon, but I like their play on these.

I used some of the same stuff they did, but its different. I reworked a stock dash. It was a challenge to the fab guys.

It turned out super nice as a platform, but for the time, we could have built a new one from scratch.

We dropped in a dakota digital gage (hid the murphy gage in cubby). Dual zone vintage air system and we have a single knob bluetooth audio system with dsp.
At this point, why not?

Default Cummins Repower ISF 2.8 for Defenders

Stumpy R380 from Ashcroft arrived today. A pic later tonight when I get home. Almost to point of a swap thread. Just need Axis adapters.

As promised. I would think this a junky repackage after customs inspection, not how Ashcroft would have shipped it.

A few vids from Ultimate Adventure with some footage of the R2.8 powered vehicles including the RRC. Looks like they did well on some tough New England terrain.
