It is the future, motor, controllers and especially batteries have advanced so much that it is viable on many classic vehicles to convert them to get better performance and more reliability. The benefit of quiet running and high torque at all engine speeds is also great, and it will work at all angles and can easily be made waterproof.

Wheeler Dealers converted a Maserati Biturbo and test drove an electric VW bus, looked like developed technology. Using the original clutch and transmission made it fairly straightforward, though they did struggle with locations for all the batteries.

A little cleaning in my garage. I fixed the frame to the ceiling and I will make me a table to do my tests with my engine and my transmission before installing everything in the frame.

What electric motor (Traction Motor?) and controller did you buy?

Here is a nice 800KW unit:

The engine is a GE 11'' DC motor. The specs are similar to the Warp 11" which is one of the most common engines in electric vehicule conversion.

The one I buy is used.

I have a budget of + or - $10,000 for my project. If I really want to do it seriously I have to invest.

--------------------------------

I modified a Jeep YJ 1990 in 2004. I invest at least $15,000 to $20,000.

Well obviously, this isn't your first rodeo...

I like YJ to CJ conversions.

Nice project, subscribed!

There is a Dutch company called NewElectric who did a CJ5 a couple of years ago. For your inspiration a couple links.

Most of it is in Dutch, but nothing what Google translate can't solve. :-)

It's so true. All the texts I write here are in French. I use google translation. Technology often makes us cringe but also has the incredible ability, when it is well done, to better help us understand each other and helps us live together.

Your google translator is working very well.
I never suspected any translation oddities.

I can not just trust Google. A language is much more than words. We must think in the language we speak. I was a truck driver and I did a lot of long distance across Canada. My English is not bad. It's more at the spelling level and google is exellent on this. But I often have to rebuild sentences so that they make sense in English.

I'm sure the same is true for English to French.

Waiting for my electric motor.

In the meantime I prepare myself by building a support to do the tests on the new engine and the transmission.

I've not ready through any electric conversions, but what all is needed to do this? Once you have the motor, and get it properly mounted to the transmission, do you just need a whole bunch of batteries and a throttle linkage to some sort of rheostat switch?
