Most batteries are located under the Tilt-UP bed. This truck is designed for long range and hill climbing ability since my commute is up Ute Pass by Pikes Peak in Colorado.

Steve's powerful pickup has moved on to a new owner and a new mission. As soon as Edward gets it personalized to his tastes, he will be updating the pictures and data to its new specifications. Meanwhile, this is still one very inspirational EV.
