I once cut a Simca in half with a sabre saw for a guy who said he was going to reroute the brake lines. He never finished anything. This was after tanks, but before skid steers.
But I can still imagine some appeal for independently driven wheels with the power source at the wheel, and electric would be the way to go for that.
Want more power? Just swap out your tires.

Cool concept but makes me wonder about the unsprung weight. The suspension would be working overtime on that puppy.

I have a 1989 Cherokee, when I shift it into 4 wheel drive the gears engage (hi & low) but not the front axle. Anyone have a guess???

Not the best, but one of the best.
I'm impressed that with 270hp on regular octane they still manage a 19mpg EPA combined. With 4WD, no less.
