    What's the reasoning behind wanting to convert your truck to electric?

    From what I've seen, the conversions that people are doing these days generally range from $5k-10k, and leaves you with a vehicle that weighs like 1000+ lbs more, and has a range of less than 100 miles.

    Seems silly to drop that cash now on a gimped electric truck, when you can just save money by waiting for real electric trucks to hit the market. You likely won't be spending $5k-10k on gas before they hit the market.

    @ reign_
    I haven't found a company yet that are doing proper Tacoma conversions yet to see what the actual cost and range are. I've seen some DIY kits out there,
    but they do not interest me. My Taco has 1800 miles on it now, and I figure spending $15k to $25k for a proper conversion with a good 300 mile or longer range is cheaper than
    buying a new truck for $50k plus. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Don’t do it. Just wait. Toyota will do it.

    @ Benny blanco

    You're probably right, but by the time Toyota does it, and at my age, I'll probably be dead!
    Drove the new electric Mach-E the other day. This electric shit is great!!

    Electric GT is the most mature I think in the crate motor space. You're still looking at 60k or more since they don't have the economies of scale like tesla or ford.

    Installed a @hondogarage unholy phone mount system. I was really surprised with the quick shipping. All the way from MT to AZ! Ordered Friday, and got it today.
    I saw some QR code things for install instructions but didn't need them. Install was simple and straight forward. Took about 5 minutes, longest part was adjusting the phone to my liking.

    You don’t want an EV that uses the layout of an ICE vehicle, nor do you want a converted ICE vehicle. Neither take advantage of a skateboard design placing the batteries at the lowest point and giving the cabin the most amount of usable space.

    Yes I have the meso rings! I was worried about it not fitting, but it sits on there just fine! The only thing I don't like (but can live with) is the vent doesn't completely close

    Do you have a link for the Motivx kit for a 2021 Tacoma 3.5L engine?
    I searched on Amazon but it reads ‘product will not fit my Tacoma’
