I recently read an article about a company building Land Rover Defenders from the ground up and installing Tesla drivetrains... then a few weeks later I got a call in the middle of the day asking if I wanted to come drive them. A smile exploded across my face and I said I'll be there tomorrow if you want. Two weeks later, there I was, in Florida, at E.C.D. Auto Design driving the greatest custom Land Rovers in the world. This is the story of Scott and two brothers, Tom and Elliot, told mostly by them. A wild behind the scenes tour where they let me see what it was like to build perfection, then drive a ton of it!
Shop Motul:
Common Questions:
What motorcycle do I ride? A few. Ducati 1198, Honda Goldwing, Honda Grom, Honda Ruckus
What do I do for a living? Make AM-posts videos.
Can you wheelie? No, I suck.

Where can I keep up with you off the bike?
Instagram: WatchJRGo
Facebook: WatchJRGo (or JRGo, FB hates my branding)
Do you go to school? College, for 2 classes.
Why do you ride so dangerously? What do mean? I was doing 25.
Do you go to the track? Of course, hopefully there will be videos in the future.
Do you play video games? No, but I might stream N64 Goldeneye at some point. Twitch: WatchJRGo
Are you afraid the police will watch your videos and arrest you? Something something evidence something something warrants and due process of law

Damn! If I had the money to order one of these, I'd have it customized with a combination 60s & 70s style. Like a 60s VW style steering wheel, a classic ridged dash, steel frame seats, and a classic green paintjob designed to last.

It's funny that no one gives a crap about the stupid masks until the camera is on them. What a joke.

WatchJRGo needs some GoPro's to attach to windshields and and the outside of vehicles when he's driving. There are only some many shots you can get while driving.

Jaguar Land Rover definitely dropped the ball when they ditched the old Defender. THIS is the sort of car that JLR could have built as a production car and made it legal for the USA. Jim Radcliffe of INEOS pinched the design, turned it into the Grenadier but stupidly allowed Mercedes to steal it and have it built in France. So it better not have a Union Jack on it. The irony of a Grenadier built in France ... 😆 Good to see a couple of Brits go out to the USA and sell a British icon to very discerning customers. They out Bentleyed Bentley.

12:20 in the video when he says each truck takes 2200 hours for all paint & body work... That's 14 weeks with a team of four putting in 40 hours a week. I call BS, no offense. I just think he accidentally misspoke. I hope.

@er godoy The camera needs to capture how people are and what is going on and why and not sanitise something so some people are pleased. It is what it is and nothing wrong with the reality of that. And while I thank you for you kind apologies I am nothing to do with JR or this business. I was just making an observation.

Hey Jr if you are in the market for a Land Rover Defender why not make a holiday of it and come over to a military auction and buy one but you would have to remember that most of them will be diesel right-hand drive except for ones that they used in Germany and other overseas areas and they must be over twenty five years ago or your US customs will seize it. But apart from that you could get a good Land Rover Defender at auction for cheap check it out. One last thing what did you do with the Audi R8?

JohnRoss love your videos especially when your Dad is them! Because you stepped in a fire ant hill for this one so I'll give you a comment and more praise! Now that you have broken a Roller with an LS holly Swap and Now you have done Done: a defender with a GM engine review, I now want you to mess with an Jag XJ coupé in Texas we call"em JAGwires or a Broken Kitty: To be called this they must have a GM / Ford drivetrain and and even sweeter manual swap:) Most importantly every spec of Lucas electronics is removed from the build in my book. Even 1980's British Leyland built semi-decent cars from awesome designers but the electronics killed the brand. Background on me I did 1-6 grade in NorCal, 7-10 grade in London (in 80's) so I love British / American hot rods like this and the RR. Never had the balls to do one of these jobs but I sure appreciate the videos.

LS swapping a Land Rover isn't that strange since the original Rover V8 was a GM based engine. I believe it was a Buick aluminum block V8 from the early 1960s that GM had issues with, leaks, and subsequently sold to Rover in the mid to late 1960s.
