Getting an engine swapped Jeep insured in Ontario?

Have any of you guys found an insurance company in Ontario that will play along with a V8 swapped Jeep? I'm getting ready to LS swap my YJ but my company (The Cooperators) won't allow a modified vehicle, even if I can get it recertified. It's my daily so I'm keeping everything legit. I'm in London if that matters.

I had similar problems with a non factory 4x4 van here too. I told my agent that the whole package of home and cars was on the line. Magically the underwriter said no problem.

Read the questionnaire carefully. My understanding is the mods that bother them are more centred on increased roll over risk.

Maybe check with a differant broker and see what they have. I deal with Miller Insurance, mainly because one of their locations is beside my shop. But they have some specialized insurance for classic car that allows for modifcations, i am sure they would have something that work for a V8 swap jeep

This is weird... I'm in Alberta but deal with cooperators and they have zero problem insuring my tj for the appraised value (currently $30,000)
It's a full tube chassis, ls powertrain, custom axles, 40" tires... weird that they won't cover you
