which way will the TJ lean...

i've been pondering what to do with my 2000 jeep wrangler for quite some time now.....but it will soon be time to take out the internal combustion engine and place all the appropriate electric drive components to enable a fully functioning jeep wrangler.

First I need to decide to use a DC (direct current) or AC (alternating current) motor and related controller. The DC path is the easiest and cheapest of the two, but i do not feel like making many "trade offs".

The largest expense will undoubtedly be the batteries, and it will be around 10-15k USD.

more to come....
