    Default More Power!

    Driving home one day i see this old power wheel jeep sitting in the trash. I already have one of these but it's the barbie one and since the girls drive it i cant mess with it. I grab the jeep, bring it home, spray it black, and wire it up for two batterys. I've upgraded my soons 6V quads to 12V when he was younger but never have upgraded a 12v jeep to 24v. The jeeps are setup for two speeds, slow and fast. Slow is now what fast was... and fast is faster. I found another shifter dealio on ebay for 5 bucks. I want to see if i can slap another battery in it to bump up to 36V and put it on 3 stages (12v, 24v, 36v).

    My son loves it.

    My sons bigfoot truck was cool, well until he drove it down a flight of stairs leading up from the yard to the house, he was fine...after a while and my wife well she of course felt it was all my fault. Hey no one picked me up, i had to lay there on my own.

    Shaun, stop this pussy-footing around. get down to Lowe's and grap a dozen Dewalt 18 volt batteries, wire them series and get this party on the road. He will love you for it. And it will be able to tow the boat!

    Default electric jeep

    I bought my son one for christmas 5 years ago. I put diagonal rows of sheet metal screws in each rear tire, 50 each. I made a huge difference in how well it worked in grass and ice. I also put a 25 pound plate behind the seat and it really dug in the ice!

    THe jeep wont hook up for nothing. Actually it's good because if it did it would probably strip out the gears. I tell him to start out in low because if he starts out in high it burns out for a year. He just loves to do donutes... Who doesnt...
