indirocz28 That's a ton of weight to be putting in a jeep man. You may want to think of a 4bt, which is still plenty heavy, but smaller and lighter than a 12v Cummins.

You could always do a gas V8 too.

30-284 A 12volt dc electric motor? You will need lots of heavy gauge cable, big hp electric motor, lots of batteries. Oh Ya also a motor controler.
