I thought the plans for the 'lectro Rovo was a SWB not a LWB.

Did you do some more calculations and need more bed space for your batteries?

If this is your EV Rover project then do not be shy about calling me to drive over a help hold a flashlight, wrench or your beer. I would love to see that project come together.

(I also think that is a pretty nice looking truck for sitting abandoned in a field in Maine for several years.)

The LWB regular will be great for a battery powered truck as there is a ton of space between the frame rails under the bed and also the two spaces where the fuel tanks go for batteries. Hopefully the frame is ok enough to use given the weight -- or are you springing for a new frame?

Things are a bit fluid, but the general idea was that in addition to doing an EV, I wanted to go coiler for comfort and have disk brakes for safety so a hybrid seemed like a good idea. The original plan was to go with a LWB RRC rolling chassis since the wheel bases are close, but the one I had lined up may not happen in a timely manner. I had also previously attempted to get a disco roller with a r380 which i could have stretched but that fell through as well. So at this point I'm going to give the 109 a thorough eval and go from there

Havent read the whole thread. But there was an electric rover done by someone in the southwest/west coast. Remember seeing it on an offroad show on Hulu some years ago if I remember correctly. Was pretty cool to watch.

I am sure one of the usual breakers will have a disco or LWB chassis for you cheap although it is not that easy to make into one that mounts a series body -- or cheap buying outriggers and crossmember unless you are willing to make your own mounts. There was a project in LRO or LRW called rolling thunder where they did it with an 88" that should help.

I have a RRC SWB chassis I cut in half and shorted to 80" wheelbase (but never welded back together) you can have for free or I am just going to send it with the scrap guy or you could just buy my LWB for $1500 (the frame is in great shape and it has new or newer brakes calipers and rotors and you could likely recoup most of your money parting it out and frame scrap metal).

Will, I'm not the first and hopefully not the last. There was one a few years ago that got some press, but the most recent one I saw was http://adventure-ev.com. I'll start a build thread when the time comes.

Ron, I'll keep both in mind. What year was the RRC you chopped? Does it have the axles and suspension still?

I stretched a D90 frame and fit a 109" tub on it and it wasn't hard. The frame stretch is the least of my worries in this project.

Anyway, until I get to look at the 109 I have no idea what path I am going to take right now. Maybe next week I'll be able to come up with a plan.

88

I think I have most of the suspension but the axles I would not use.

Be sure to take lots of pics of the 109 and I am sure we can help you find needed parts and help with the assessment.

Um, C? The LWB is prolly going to be available by COB Sunday. Rob and I pulled the AC box away from the dash last night and the whole main harness is a melted blob of goo. Somewhere in that mess is a major short that has to be fixed. No way am I replacing all that schmidt. Any hope of getting it going have been dashed.
Taking the parts off that I mentioned and then all you vultures are welcome to the carcass.

If someone is willing to cut out some sections of the front and rear floors I would trade series parts.

I have that issue.

I need parts for my new Hooptie.
