i have had the exact same thought. we curently converted a 1990 toyota pickup to electrics and i am pretty impressed with the performance of the motor. it is only half of the peak horsepower of the 22re that came in the truck but it still gives lower speed preformance that is close to stock. the electric motor and the gas engine make power at very different rpms as well as their torque numbers. i think that an early scout 800 would be a better option since it is lighter and the dana 18 t-case accepts an overdrive unit which would effectively give you 2 forward speeds. the value for me in the ev is efficency. you can create a much more efficent commuter/wheeler combo with the use of a small gen set and the right size battery pack. also electric motors would excell off road due to their higher torque output at lower rpms.
next step for me is to put a gen set on the back of the toyota and see what we would need for nearly continuous opperation! the subaru that we converted before hand needed 12.5 kw to opperate at 30 mph but that was all wheel drive and the toyota is lighter and smaller.

That is cool that you have experience with EV's.

I am currently riding a 50MPH for 35 miles electric bike that looks more like a motorcycle.

I also am on the market for an LSV. low speed vehicle, they are allowed on roads less than 35MPH and go 25MPH top speed, I bet you can tune them up too. Club car makes an excellent Utility LSV that I am trying to find used.


The range rover classic is a cool idea for an EV but the price of batteries to power such a slug might be out of my price range.

For my long wheel base I am going propane. They will deliver it right to my shop and for cheaper than gas. I think once I sandblast the frame, I will install a Mantank propane tank, which can be custom fit, and put in place of the gasoline tank.

Im galvanizing all at once as well, so the propane and air tank will all be covered with zinc

Has anybody heard of hot dip galvanizing the steel body frame as well as the frame? I am bringing the frame to get galvanized next weekend and I am wondering what they can do for a package deal. I would assume it would be a LOT of work re drilling holes and even the prep for fixing the rust I have, but if it means no rust ever again... and its a decent price together... I would consider it.

I have a lot to do with this truck but I think I will order the propane kit, cam kit and lifter kit, and ignition kit from RPi in the next 2 months. I still have welding to do on the floor pans, body work to do, FINISH my 4.2 motor, which should be back from getting resurfaced and ALL new bearings this week. I am shooting to be done by the summer with this truck but I have a lot of projects.

The last picture is where I want to put my LPG tank.. I think I am going to buy the kit from RPi and get the ellipsoid tank to put in there for now and get another ellipsoid tank for the spare wheel location later on when I have more money.
