This 2008 Ford F150 fleet version which belongs to the eleventh generation (2004–2008) of F150 runs perfectly. It is powered by a 5.4-liter V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission.

UPDATE (November 2022): Joel went ahead and put a new factory ICE in it.  While he's no longer interested in a full conversion he would be interested in a hybrid add-on. Something similar to: https://unleash.energy/the-system.

This F150 was previously a fleet truck before it was acquired by Joel in 2021. This 4x4 shows 220,000 miles and besides some rust on the passenger door, there are no major issues. There is no history of upgrades or restoration on this truck. According to its owner, the truck is in an exceptionally good shape considering its age and mileage.

This F150 is equipped with AC, power brakes, and power steering. It has manual windows and a basic stereo. In addition to the EV conversion, suspension and brakes (disc at the front and drum at the rear) may also need to be modified or upgraded.

Joel is really focused on the practicability of his truck: “I don't need it to ride like Cadillac, just to get the job done.” No interior updates needed.

He wants the vehicle to be as powerful as it is today with a top speed of 80 MPH, and a range of 130-150 miles. The truck will be used everyday for work and leisure, on highway and in the city. This project is the one-for-all / multipurpose / everyday EV conversion.

The 5.4L V8 creates 300 horsepower and 365 lb.-ft. of torque and Joel would like to replace it by the Ford MACH E ELUMINATOR™ which delivers almost the same power and torque (281hp and 317 lb.-ft. of torque). Considering the curb weight of the vehicle at 5,070 lbs., other motors with the same or higher performance at the wheels are more than welcome. Joel would like to maintain a 9,000 lbs. towing capacity.

Understanding that towing will reduce its range by half, he states that he regularly tows 9000lbs for 50 miles or less which is consistent with his expectations - 90% of its towing is under 15 miles.

Charging time should not exceed 7 hours for 80% of the capacity of the battery pack. If easier for the converter, he would also consider the installation of a battery pack in the bed only if its load capacity is not reduced drastically (6” or less). Joel does not have a particular battery preference.

One charging station is needed that would be installed at home where the truck will usually be plugged in.

Joel is not a mechanic and is not interested in doing any of the EV conversion work. He wants a converter to handle 100% of the job and use as many used EV parts as possible. As a matter of fact, Joel is ready to ship the truck cross country and is open to trading ICE parts removed with the converter.
