Welcome! Do you have any ideas for your project so far?
I'm actually doing something very similar. I'm converting a 2010 Ford Escape. Originally I wanted an older jeep cherokee ('97-'01), but I couldn't find any that weren't completely rusted. Manual transmissions are preferred so that you don't need to do a lot of fabrication and can just bolt the motor onto the transmission.Thank you. Right now I’m thinking about doing a conversion on a car or small SUV. I like rear wheel drive so maybe an older S-10, Sonoma, etc. something I can drive to the drag strip. I have a ‘98 Chevy short box single cab full size but I don’t know if the heavy weight would be a problem. I need to learn about batteries, controls, motors, conversion kits. The thought of having a smooth, quiet vehicle and not have to worry about gas, exhaust, oil changes, plugs, wires and so on is very appealing.
