I'm just a simple guy with a welder and a garage. introduction to Jeeps started as early as I can remember on my families farm taking our John boat down to the river on a rickety old trailer in an equally rickety old 1964(ish) CJ3B. When I was 16 I swept all the barn dust off of the old CJ and commenced on a sympathetic (that is to say cheap) restoration actually getting it onto public streets! 30 years later, I got a hold of a 1997 Wrangler and started converting it to electric. The motor, transmission and battery is out of a salvaged Tesla Model S P90. The conversion rolled out of the garage about a year later but was, unfortunately, pushed back in the garage about an hour later. It'd be another 6 months before It left the garage again. Now, over a year later, it's still going strong!
