Default XB to XB-E?

Is it possible to convert an XB to and XB-E?

anything can be done with enough $$$ and time. but i think it would be cheaper just to buy a XB-E.
tho some of the suspension and diffs and such are shared between the 2, replacing the whole drivetrain would be costly not to mention all the chassis parts that are not the same on the 2 models.

Agreed. I looked at converting my Backdraft 3.5 to electric and the chassis are so different there's really no point.
