    Also the back windshield fluid spray went straight back away from the car so that was always funny to do when I had friends in the car behind me.

    Fairly regularly. I would say I use it as the good lord intended to 20+ times a year.

    CT Brasky #2: Its Car Talk w/ Click and Clack

    The other issue with an electric jeep is that accessories (winch, lights, fridge, etc) all run off battery - with a combustion engine you can recharge the amp draw from those accessories, but a pure EV doesnít have efficient battery regeneration (that Iím aware of). Thatís got to be solved for mass adoption in the adventure / off road community.

    Fair enough. The gas worshipping protestations felt a little too poser-y, is all. Seems like a you do you situation. Id think many off roaders could probably easily do it on a single charge anyway, at least around here.

    When using the jeep like you should use a jeep you shouldn't be within 50 miles of a power outlet.

    Oh, catamounts a clown and you can stay on him. The off-road crowd is probably 1% of the car buying population. I would think that an electric or hybrid wrangler would sell very well.

    plus, all this was a "someday I hope..." post for getting Jeeps up to a level of performance with electric

    once we strap solar panels on cars, you won't have to worry so much about your range

    All you really need is a Mr. Fusion to power the flux capacitor.

    Actually since thereís no engine noise and no exhaust you can just keep an EV turned on to run accessories. Iíve run a TV/blu ray player off an inverter for 6-8 hours with my car turned on the whole time and lost maybe 1 mile of range.

    That's weird, I grinds my gears when people pronounce it "conch".

    it gets me that the city of Staunton, VA is pronounced Stanton. There's a fucking U in it. Whenever we drive through there or past a sign for it I say Staun-ton just to drive my wife crazy. For a state so proud of its English heritage, Virginians sure don't know how to speak it.

    My stylist retired to go full time into the scrap metal/ginseng/fur trade so now I go to the lady that cuts my wifeís hair, who is also unfortunately a close family friend and now Iím stuck getting subpar haircuts until this lady dies.

    The amp draw of a 10000lb winch is almost 100x than that of a tv, so efficient power regeneration is a real need for running offroad accessories.
