Engine - Chassis swap in California

Hi has anyone done an engine swap and or a chassis swap on their defender in California? If so do you need to inform the DMV? Can anyone share their experiences...

Thanks

You technically can't do a chassis swap on a defender in California. The identity of the vehicle is determined by the frame. Once you change the frame you've changed the identity of the vehicle. You can contact your local CHP office and talk to the vin officer if you have questions.
