but the lithium replacement is 800lb, giving a
weight savings of 1,100
Conversion Time2 weeks
Conversion Cost$8,000 for battery, BMS, and new water pump
When I bought this truck, the seller thought the batteries were bad
because it would only go 4 miles before shutting down. I discovered
the water pump was not functioning, which caused the motor to
overheat and throw a "power limit" error. After repairing this, I
have had no issues.
