After purchasing the vehicle from Mark Hastings in Texas for $3000 I towed it back to Arkansas a 600 mile trip. About 50 miles from my destination the truck fell into gear over spinning the motor destroying it and snapping the tail shaft of the transmission.

It had US2200 batteries in it and I found it only traveling 19 miles on them after 3 years. I replaced them with U2000's and have been driving it 12.5 mile to and from work a total of 25 to 30 miles daily @ 55 to 60Mph using frontage roads. it is charged over night I have found it uses 14 to 15Kw Measured with a EZ read Kw meter added to the inside of the bed.

the only thing I have found is if the motor is spinning with tension my transmission doesn't growl. But if I let up on the accelerator pedal it starts to growl??
