I would if I could...

These things still have a big problem with charging / range, ESPECIALLY when towing.

But they do eliminate all the regearing of diffs and low-range and transfer cases and driveshafts and all that.  Far simpler, lower maintenance drivetrain.  The testing appears to indicate that they make a fantastic rock crawler / trail rig.  The Motor Trend test shows it doing Black Bear pass, and doing it well.  Super dusty trail?  So what, no air filters to change (well, there's a cabin air filter of course).
