    R1S Megawatt Sliders by Electruck 4x4 - installed photos & review

    I installed mine yesterday, with the help of a friend who had jack stands. Took around 2 hours. And I referred to this post, to confirm that yes I only needed to remove 4 17 mm bolts, and 5 T55 screws.

    Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier

    I don't have the Rigd one, but @gtrivian said he does. The one I have, document in this string, blocks the rear camera and sensors significantly enough to be useless and annoying.

    Contact Rigd and they have a couple first batch Rivian specific UltraSwings, which are not on their website.

    Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier

    I almost bought one, too, but they said my bike rack and 2 e-bikes exceed the 125 lb weight limit on their additional hitch. I’m waiting for Wilco Off-road to get back to me now. 1) Full size Rivian 20" spare wheel and tire ~86 lbs + 2) 1UpUSA Super Duty Double bike rack weight ~50 lbs + 3)...

    Preconditioning the Battery for DC Fast Charging can make big difference

    I’ve put almost 30k miles on my R1S over the last 12 months, with mostly Level 3 charging, and it’s clear that the battery needs to be at least 72 degrees to charge at its max capabilities (215 kw). If at 68 degrees, for example, then it takes a few minutes of Level 3 charging for it to heat up...

    Where are the Rivian "adventurers"?

    White Rim Trail every 2 or 3 years, Hurrah Pass, Chicken Corners, Lockhart Basin / Canyon. I’ve driven every road in the Needles District, including any requiring permits or only open part of the year, but don’t feel like I need to again. I am happy that I did Elephant Hill with my FJ, but I did...

    Colorado WTB 20” Black AT wheel

    I’m looking to buy either just the wheel or wheel + tire combo as a full size spare tire for my R1S. I’m willing to go in on a set of 4 if can find 3 more people to join me, commit. I’ll also ask a service center rep in person next time I’m there as using Rivian’s 888 # in the Gear Shop got me...

    Demo Rivians Now for Sale

    As a Canadian, you may know more about this than me. My only experience about importing a US vehicle to Canada is this. I bought my customized (for off roading) FJ from a Coloradan who moved to Canada. He tried to work with the Canadian (or Province’s) equivalent of the Colorado motor vehicle...

    December 2023 / January 2024 Delivery Window - No Car in Sight

    My Shop access was removed 4 weeks ago, but no progress, no “it’s time to start your digital purchase process”. Makes me worry my vehicle didn’t pass inspections at the factory, is a lemon.

    Mickey Thompson Baja Boss 20" AT Tires Installed -- Like Nebraska, honestly, it's not for everyone...

    Further to my earlier message, had my service center visit today. $340 is for an EDV inspection. $0 courtesy inspection does things I can do on my own, such as top off windshield fluid. I paid $240 for the multi-point inspection. Only issue = they found both rear dampers were leaking...
