The project is not dead. I had to put it aside while I was working on my house.

For the time being I am doing research to make my controller and I am shopping for batteries.

Awesome build!! I toyed with the idea to convert my CJ5 to electric just because it would be unique. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Don't let us down! I want to see this thing through to the end!! If you do it right, this could serve as the blueprint for one good way to do an electric conversion for a CJ.

I feel a bit of pressure here but if my project can encourage others its great. Buying his super but there is nothing more rewarding than to realize his own projects with our hands.

I just found the batteries. It will be a complete Chevrolet Volt battery pack. 7 sections of 48 Volts and 2 of 24 volts for a power of 16 kWh.

It will give me time to make a wooden table. Those in my garage are made of metal, bad idea when you have to work with electric current

I'm also have to do some research on how to hook up my batteries to get the most power out of them.

It's wise to school yourself about battery safety with EV, 48V could be lethal....
At work we started to get the first hybrid trucks to work on, and the safety precautions are enormous.

This is a neat project, hope to see you finish it. Those batteries are usually a complete unit including controls, are you going to modify it, or use it as-is? I believe it is something like 300 Volts as used in the Volt.

Just remember to not touch anything orange
