That is one clean installation. Wonder what the range would be, noticed he did not post it or make any claims.

Most people with Chevy S-10's seem to say that they get about 500 watt hours per mile, so with the higher discharge rate dropping 6v golf cart batteries down from 220 amp hours to 185 amp hour capacity you'd get 44 mile range to 100% discharge with 20 6v golf cart batteries like it has, giving you a real life range of around 20 miles if you want to replace your batteries every 5-6 years, 35 miles if you want to replace your batteries every 2-3 years.

Here are two Chevy S-10's that seem to be on par with what is being sold here.

Jay's 1995 Chevrolet S-10

Allan's 1995 Chevrolet S-10

It looks like that on for sale has a Curtis controller, Albright contactors and Interstate batteries, all good stuff! the only thing I don't like is what looks like the edge of an alternator connected to the tail shaft of the motor, a DC to DC converter would be a much better choice, get rid of the drag of the belt and alternator, get rid of the 12v aux battery too, save weight, drag and space!
