This is the reason I wanted to throw my ideas out on the list. I really
the feedback. I can go a completely different route at this point. The website
selling the ac motor said that it would take a s10 to highway speeds, but it
say how long it would take :)
I would like to use an ac motor so I can have regen brakes - it seems this would
help if I don't have power brakes.

What kind of acceleration/speed performance are you expecting? With that much
weight and low voltage, the vehicle will be very sluggish and may not have
highway capable top speeds.
I’m not trying to dissuade you, just want you to be happy with your final
project after so much time, devotion, and money.

Not sure if y'all like to follow other folks work, but I put up some
pics of my current project. I'm converting a cj7 to be all electric.
I haven't gotten to the electric stuff yet, mostly drivetrain restoration
type stuff. I don't have a blog, but I have this:
Btw, I have a question. I'm thinking of running 17 trojan t-125's
and something like this ac motor setup:
I'm hoping for at least a 30 mile range. I will be running a 4 speed tranny and
4.11 gears with ~30" tires
highway/all season tires. Not sure what kind of real range I will get. Do
y'all have any ideas?
I will have some extra weight because I'm retaining the 4x4 stuff (front diff
and transfercase). Otherwise,
I will be pretty lean (manual brakes/steering - at least starting out.)
