I think a 7 inch deep box would let me keep a new boot floor level that is even with boot opening. I don't know if there is some sort of pre-determined safe clearance for chassis parts. A skid plate might be a good idea.

I want to keep as much space as possible in the boot as I use it quite a bit.
It is very easy to get stuff in and out since it opens like a tail gate.

There’s 9 inches between the levels of boot and cabin floor, so 7 inch deep box will still sit higher than the main floor. You could actually go full 9 inches with no trouble I guess.

Figured I would jump in here. The motor for the Graziano transaxle is different from the one you have. The AC50 you need is the one for a Wheego, it is designed to bolt directly to the Graziano.

We can build you one. Very few of the parts in the standard AC50 work with the Graziano style motor. My suggestion would be to find someone to buy the motor you have and buy the correct motor for the trans, or use an adapter to use the motor you have on a standard trans.

“We can build you one” …is, what kind of money we talk about?

You are in the $1800 range. You may want to just look at buying a kit with controller, it's a little cheaper that way, unless you have a controller already. Keep in mind, if we didn't provide the controller setup for that motor, the software in the controller most likely won't have the motor characterization for the AC50 in it.

We also have the Graziano transmissions in an 8.5:1 ratio in stock.
