Hi guys, I am new to this, but was just wondering if anyone has done a ev conversion on a 4wd jeep, or if it is even possible?

Most Jeeps use a transfer case to get 4WD, so there should be little difference in converting 2WD vs 4WD...

My AWD RAV4 uses a transaxle with a transverse mounted engine (ie side-ways) - this greatly limited the size of motor I could use (a 9" Warp just barely fit).

Hopefully your Jeep is not transverse, so you should have lots of room to put in as big as you want.

A quick search for Jeeps in showed at least 12 conversions - I would start there to see what others have done...
There is a real nice one posted here. 4wd tends to add a little drivetrain drag as so cost a little range, but it is not a deal breaker.
Thanks guys. This is going to be interesting.
