Default Planing on 89 ford ranger 4x4 xlt 5inch lift on 33s conversion

Wana use as a daily driver 20+ miles perday, would like to have it go 100+ miles and interstate, 75mph, the truck has a 5speed with 5th being over drive, ive done electrical and understand it, n fab work too. Just wondered what would be the best motor n battery packs n the small things like swiches n what not.

I would suggest that you read through the whole forum exhaustively.

Also, http://www.evalbum.com
http://www.evwest.com
Http://www.EVTV.com
http://www.thunderstruck-ev.com
http://www.electriccarpartscompany.com

I feel that you may either need to adjust your expectations downward a bit, or be prepared to spend a bit on the battery pack.

If I were made of $$ I would use this motor http://www.evwest.com/catalog/produc...mno5offnk4a6h0 .

A little more realistic for a motor http://www.thunderstruck-ev.com/hpev...rsion-kit.html

This battery pack, except with your range goals, maybe two or three of them? http://m.ebay.com/itm/4-Tesla-Model-....c100408.m2460

This would possibly be enough to drive you upwards of 40+ miles http://m.ebay.com/itm/13-14-15-CHEVY....c100408.m2460

The chevy pack does 40 ish miles in my ranger but im stock height and these things are aero bricks. Ive been to 80 mph but it was getting scary. To do 100miles I'd need 2full and 1/2 pack since my base voltage is 192. Down side is then you have no bed area left for anything else and no carry capacity. Still would need another addition using a leaf pack, I dont know about tesla. Im also series dc for motor, salvage might be a better deal if you can wrangle electrons.
