That's what Land Rovers were designed to do in the first place :)
Dropping the engine onto an old tire, so the sump is where the wheel itself
was, will stabilise it a lot, plus a few old tires around it to stop it
moving too much will help - in addition to properly tieing it down.
We've carried lots in the old S11A that way, hauling donks out of bush
location. An engine crane helps too

I own a 110 and may shortly need to travel 3 hours to go pick up an
engine for possible future swap into the 110. The engine weighs
around 600-700 pounds. I don't presently have a hitch installed on my
110 so can't presently pull a trailer, so was wondering if it would be
possible to haul it in the back. I'd put some plywood on the floor to
protect it, and obviously the engine has to be able to fit through the
door and be lifted in (and out of) there, but is there any reason you
can think why this shouldn't be done? It's a diesel engine.
Alternatively, I can install hitch and wiring and rent a trailer for
