I had to sell my 2012 Rubicon on 35s to buy my Model S...
This is so cool...
Pretty remarkable. Sounds like a full size version of the electric RC models from the hobby shop I used to tinker with growing up. I am hoping Tesla will eventually do a more utilitarian Jeep like SUV.
I always wanted to build one like this, my plan was to bolt the motor right to the transfer case and call it a day. I don't believe however that the gearing would be nearly low enough.
The costs are just crazy too. You can get a used 350 block, and all the parts you'd need for 1/2 or less than to go electric. Maybe someday electric parts will be cheaper... once there is a 'used' parts market.
Go for it man! I wouldn't even dare myself. But yeah I would imagine it would be an expensive project. But you would be the highlight of every electric car meet up!
