I like this concept. I've been away fro the forum for quite some time but this build has drawn me in. I need to learn a lot more about the DC motor, but my basic questions have been answered so far. I am planning to get a Ford Bronco 2 soon, as I have left over parts from swapping everything out of a 94 Explorer into my son's 90 Ranger. That left me with the 2.3 4 banger and 5 speed. Yes, the Bronco 2 is 4x4, and with the 2.3 I was planning to build it for (hopefully) MPGs. Makes me think I could ditch the transfer case, and mount a motor where the transfer case was. Leaving me a lot of thinking to do for batteries and where to put them. I wasn't planning to build the Bronco 2 as an offroad machine, just a cruiser to beat my F150 and Jeep on MPGs. THis would be fun to use, even add "Hybrid" stickers or badging... Thanks for a great idea!!!
