Conversion CostBought already built off of eBay
A good "project" truck to figure out what to do and not do with an electric conversion. Plans include a tilt-bed for dropping the batteries UNDER the bed, a proper pack of 6-volt batteries to replace the old really dead pack of trojans it came with, miscellaneous interconnects, contactors, safety features, a roll cage (for my wife's peace of mind) and a different motor.
