their are kits out there just for the s10 so you can buy it all off the shelf and just put it together.
to do a direct drive would make it really clean and allow you to move the electric motor back a bit, but would it change your motor requirements to something that is harder to get? I don't know off the top of my head the gear ratio of the rear end of an s10, or the drive shaft speed at 65mph.
