Convert S10 to all electric

I really love this kit

S10 Kit

talk about the perfect eco modification. This is a much better way to do all electric. Now I just need to look at the math of the conversion to see if it makes sense.

I figure $10,000 for all the components and for everything including the labor. Well maybe I better make that $15,000 worst case.

But I need to read how long the wet lead battery used for the conversion (golf cart batteries) will last over a five year period, and see how often I need to replace the batteries. Also need to see how long the brushes last on the electric motor. Not sure what the weakest link would be in this whole set up.

Given the aerodynamic developments for the truck cap in the other forum it seems this might be the perfect vehicle.
