what kind of Jeep? we need to know as there is a big difference in terms of space for a battery pack on a Wrangler vs a Cherokee for example
GOOGLING ha ha, ok you really need to learn how to provide more detail, I am not trying to be rude, so upload a pic when ever you can. again I am not trying to be a jerk but it appears those jeeps came as two door or four door, that makes a huge difference again for room for batteries, and keep in mind YES every car can be converted to electric it is just a matter of how hard and expensive or how easy and affordable of a project do you want, know what I mean.mahindra thar
ah, awesome, keep it! good way to get reverse without having to spin the motor in the opposite direction, know what I mean? not to mention you will appreciate the gearing and you still get to shift gears a little bit to put the motor in its happy place in terms of RPMs you will find what RPMs it likes to spin at and what transmission gear is best for thatThe one i am working with is 2wd, so i was trying to work around if i should keep the transmission or not,
Wow, ok that is about 125 miles, which is a lot, very ambitious. First let me say I am not an expert just trying to help. So let's use the first generation Nissan Leaf 2011-12 battery pack as an exmple, that big ol' heavy thing is 24 kWh and offers 73 mile range (117 km) and that's in a much more aero dynamic car with regenerative breaking, so lets assume it would do half of what you need in your Jeep. looks like you may need one of these trailers to carry the other one, ha ha jk200km atleast
I would let an existing adapter plate dictate my motor choice, in other words see who makes an adapter plate for that transmission if anyone here's one from Electric Motor Sporti was thinking of going for a 40kw Pmac motor and rear wheel drive
But the plan from the first post has been to use an AC motor, so reverse is just a signal to the controller - "having to spin the motor in the opposite direction" is not a problem at all, and doesn't need a solution.ah, awesome, keep it! good way to get reverse without having to spin the motor in the opposite direction, know what I mean?
Those adapters at ElectricMotorsport probably come from CanEV, judging from the style and colour. You can just look at the CanEV website, and have access to all of the supporting documents without having create an account and log in (as ElectricMotorsport makes you do, as if those documents are some valuable property of theirs).... see who makes an adapter plate for that transmission if anyone here's one from Electric Motor Sport

it will look something like this
so how is that going to work, say he needs to back out of a parking spot, he's parked so the trans is in Neutral, are you saying put it in 1st gear then reach over to the dash and press some button or flip some switch that commands the motor to spin in the opposite direction, I am not trying to be a smart @ss I am just playing this out in my head, if so then he might as well just put it in Reverse to begin with, is all I am saying, let me know if I am missing somethingBut the plan from the first post has been to use an AC motor, so reverse is just a signal to the controller - "having to spin the motor in the opposite direction" is not a problem at all, and doesn't need a solution.
