I was thinking about that.. I've got a few ideas.
1. Drive one wheel. (Go around in circles?)

2. Install two motors, one for each wheel. (Small pancake motors, or shorten the shafts).

3. Reinstall the rear diff and good sized motor to drive it.

But that's going to take some extra HP to over-come Honda's fancy dual-pump clutch activator gizmo. Bigger motor etc.
The motor would connect to those 4 bolt holes in the upper left.

One crazy idea was to attach a motor to the transfer case output from the front end and drive the front wheels..
That's also a low RPM app.
