    Batteries have always been the limiting factor in EV. The weight of those lead/acid batteries is enormous. I wonder how they dealt with that for the suspension. All up front where they are.. Not the best placement.

    I would be way to tempted to upgrade the motor/batteries/charging system to something modern. Otherwise that would be pretty cool to own.

    I didn't think the DJ5E was for electric, but was just the next in the series of letter suffixes. I used to work on a DJ5G that had a VW/Audi/Porsche engine. I learned something new today!

    I noticed the fenders were intermediate type and I'd assume same for the hood and frame.

    All other DJs, regardless of engine (inline 4 or 6) had the 81" WB and early style hood and fenders. The grill popped out when AMC put the straight six in by '72.

    Also the heaters on these electric DJs were gasoline-fired.

    The E model had an 81" wheelbase as well. I had never noticed the longer fenders before.

    I didn't notice the long fenders from the intermediates on this one. One of the last photos (blurry) shows the long fenders, but the front wheels pushed back in the fenderwell. Also, the grill looks like its almost sitting on the front bumper. My guess is the "restoration" included the longer fenders/hood from an intermediate CJ, where the originals were likely the short nose version as I'm used to seeing on DJ's.

    Edit: Ojgrsol replied while I was writing my reply, and the spec sheet he posted clearly shows the long fenders are correct! Another bit of trivia learned today.
    Those make for one awkward looking Jeep.
