I had to review the transmission location. The connectors of the motor are much too close to the steel of the support.








I worked on the engine brackets. I had old truck mud guards in my garage which served me as carpets. I cut one in lanner and glued them on the two parts of the support.










The rear drive shaft is install.

I installed a protective grille on my motor for not damaging the brushes.










The transmission support is to old and damage. I made a new one.

I started to disassemble and clean the front differential.

This morning I entered my garage to work on my project and realized that I had never seen the wheels of my jeep turn with the electric motor on. So I start 2018 with a short video of my jeep that is slowly coming alive.

Very cool.

Any thoughts on building an additional "motor mount" at the bellhousing? Seems like it would be pretty easy to build something off each side of that adapter plate to run down to the frame with a bushing on each side. I'd be a little concerned about the motor twisting with only that clamp style mount once you are actually trying to move the Jeep under power.

I did several searches on the web and the majority of the engine mounts I saw did not have any bushing.

All this is new to me and I am confident that I will have to make several changes once I have started the tests on the road. I would not be surprised if rubber bushing for the engine is useful.

I did some work on my front differential. After a good cleaning I will be able to install a disc brake system.

Fascinating videos. The main thing I notice is that the sounds of the wind and streams are louder than the Jeep. I'm onto this thread late but am glad I found it. 5 years ago I did not think that electric vehicles had much viability, but lately I have finally concluded that I think their numbers will increase greatly, even exponentially, for a decade or more.

Great work! Does the angle of the electric motor/transmission/D300 need to match the pinion angle of the rear axle? In other words, if the axle pinion is pointed 5 degrees up, should the motor point 5 degrees down?

I actually think a Jeep makes incredible sense in electronic form. The instant torque of electronic motors is impressive.

If you had to choose between World Peace and a Jeep, what size tires would you run?

In the video he has no weight on the differential. The old suspension that is on the jeep is the one that was on when I bought it. With a good new suspension installed, the batteries and the tub in place the angle should be good.

Agreed. On a semi-related note, I get Jegs, Summit Racing, and other automotive performance catalogs in the mail almost weekly. 100% of it is dedicated to fossil fuel vehicles. As time goes on I think we'll start to see those companies offer performance parts for electric vehicles. The market will be huge. For any part in an electric car, it can be improved, tweaked, lightened, strengthened or otherwise made better. I have no gripe with fossil fuel vehicles, and I intend to build or buy a high horsepower internal combustion engine at some point, but I think electrics will be the future. If today's electric cars are akin to 1980's remote control electric cars, then we have some huge performance gains to be seen in the next 2 or 3 decades.

I completely agree, Ken! I am excited to see what the future may hold for electric vehicles. I will not be a buyer until their performance equals my gas engine vehicles, but we are well on the way there. The limiting factor still continues to be storage. If someone, sometime, comes up with a way to store electricity in sufficient quantity to rival a full gas tank, and comes up with a way to recharge it in anything resembling a reasonable period of time, the market will explode.

Electric motors have such amazing potential for producing torque at low rpm, who wouldn't want that?
