Hmmm. I'd still head back to stock 24v just as fast as my wallet would allow me. This conversion just doesn't make any sense financially, ....not to mention work-wise, even without considering the time and trouble involved in tracking all the alternative voltage kit needed to make it all actually happen. The saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the wash water" comes to mind. But hey, what do I know? I'm just a noob here and advice is only worth what you pay for it.
But, Thumper, as has already been mentioned, in the final analysis, it's your truck and especially since it's a kit vehicle (as is my Alley Cat) I suppose the impact on the ultimate value of the vehicle is not necessarily an issue. When I get back to my Alley Cat, I'm looking at it from this angle - what would a prospective buyer of my Alley Cat expect it to be, mechanically as well as electrically? Over the years, I've passed on several would-be "good deals" simply because someone had been in there monkeying around with the electrical system and hadn't given the least consideration to what concerns the next guy might have about that. When I sell, I'm looking to appeal to as many prospective buyers as I possibly can by presenting a vehicle that gives the buyer a good feeling about what he's buying. Essentially, I look at my vehicles not only in what their value is to me but what their value might be to the next guy. I believe that's an important consideration.
