A friend offered me this on the cheap when it blew a head gasket at almost 200K miles. It's a "Maine" truck i.e. it's survived quite a few winters but with typical Toyota quality is pretty sound structurally.

Don't really know - I've cruised at 50+ mph.

About 40 miles usable range: have gone 30+ miles no problem in cool/cold weather using the heater.

estimated but I weighed parts taking them out and I think this is pretty close
|Tires||14" Jetzon Innovations; nice riding and seem to roll fairly well|
|Conversion Time||8 mos.|
|Additional Features||I used air-bags on the rear suspension for added load capacity. Heavy-duty shock absorbers were installed front and back. Hawk heavy-duty brake pads will be installed on the front.|
|The stock pickup bed is rusted underneath where the hinges would have to go (in order to access the batteries). I decided it would be easier, lighter, cheaper to build a flatbed. The one on it now is heavier than it needs to be and hope to build some type of aero "shell" at a later date.|
