    Reinforced Underbody Shield removed & myth dispelled (not integral to pack structure)

    I think you’re right, by appearance anyways. I guess I feel like this was a bit of a bait and switch then—there was no mention of them doing everything but the battery pack panel (which seems like the most important part, no?). is there any chance that RUS has changed over time? I just dug...

    Reinforced Underbody Shield removed & myth dispelled (not integral to pack structure)

    I’ll have to get under the truck tomorrow and get some more detailed photos/investigate a little further. @rhuber, can you post some photos of what your battery pack cover looks like post swap? Or anyone with RUS, for that matter.

    Reinforced Underbody Shield removed & myth dispelled (not integral to pack structure)

    According to the work order, it should be upgraded—at least, that’s what I assumed when I read it. If they didn’t swap that out, I would say that the work order is very misleading. Is there some visual que that you’re not seeing in photos of my truck? I haven’t ever seen an R1 with RUS up...

    New RAN charging stations open in Columbia, Missouri and West Lebanon, New Hampshire

    It’s strange that they’re just now announcing West Lebanon RAN—I’ve been charging there for a couple weeks now and it’s awesome! No more crappy EA at the Walmart (that almost always seems to have stalls down, reduced charging speeds, and/or a line). It’s also closer to the interstate...

    Where are you located? I have some direct contacts in the Chelsea, MA SC (who have been wonderful to work with).

    Reinforced Underbody Shield removed & myth dispelled (not integral to pack structure)

    I’ll take your word for it @rhuber, since you’ve had both all apart in pieces (and since nobody at Rivian thus far seems sure or able to say) and appreciate the added peace of mind. It sure is strange that nobody along the way has been able to describe what all RUS actually contains that...

    Demo Rivians Now for Sale

    I believe no discounts or promotions can be applied to Demo purchases. That being said, the price is pre-march pricing plus a hefty discount (almost $10k in my case). The total for my quad/large pack/FG/FE/powered tonneau/20” dark (basically every option except RUS) came out to be less than my...

    KIA EV9 vs. Rivian R1S: Comprehensive Overview, Key Questions, Buy or Lease Scenarios?

    Also, the demo page changes periodically and R1Ss get snapped up very quickly. If you want to go that route, keep refreshing the page. Also, deals fall through sometimes and they go back to being available if the “Sale Pending” doesn’t close. There are a couple threads dedicated to this if you...

    KIA EV9 vs. Rivian R1S: Comprehensive Overview, Key Questions, Buy or Lease Scenarios?

    Yes, absolutely apples to oranges (or lemons, in my case 😁). And while ours was a lemon technically, it was only due to exorbitant shop time for mostly minor things that they couldn’t fix (and an ICCU failure at <5k miles that meant no AC charging for over 1.5 months), but mostly the fact that...

    KIA EV9 vs. Rivian R1S: Comprehensive Overview, Key Questions, Buy or Lease Scenarios?

    Have you tried an R1S with your car seat? We have a Nuna REVV, which takes up a fair amount of space in rear facing. With the front seat in the tallest position (fear adjuster) and lowest position on the front adjustment (under your quads/knees), I am actually able to be reasonably comfortable...

    Emblems - They're going away (again!)

    I was getting my truck tinted/ceramic coated and planned to have the emblems installed then (I also got some PPF in a few high-wear areas). My emblems were delivered right after I dropped the truck off an hour away, so I had them rush delivered by a courier and then got cold feet as I thought...

    Demo Rivians Now for Sale

    So, I reserved a demo two days ago, and I'm still waiting for my "guide" to reach back out to me. I've scheduled one meeting and it came and went, and have another one scheduled tomorrow. To get to this lock it in phase, I'm assuming you have to actually talk to a person? I've tried to find a...

    A2Z adapter delivered today

    That was as close as I could get without straining the cable/connector more than I was comfortable with. This seemed just close enough though to allow a Tesla to still charge to my passenger side. This was my second Tesla station I’ve charged at since getting the adapter, so I was mainly...

    First experience with Lectron Supercharger adapter

    this is a pretty new station (not sure how new, but it wasn’t there last year around the same time—which was a pleasant surprise). The good news that is now obvious to me after experiencing this newer station is that Tesla could probably just redraw the lines at a lot of older layout stations...

    A2Z adapter delivered today

    I ordered mine 4/9 and it was delivered 5/9. They seem to be very good about hitting their claimed 3-4 week delivery window. You should be good!

    A2Z adapter delivered today

    Mine also showed up late last week (Thursday), just in time for a trip where I was really hoping to have it. I was surprised at how dense and seemingly well made this unit is. I used exclusively RAN and Tesla chargers on my trip to Cae Cod, and it performed flawlessly. Prior year trips to cape...

    First experience with Lectron Supercharger adapter

    A side note for anyone considering the A2Z vs Lectron: my A2Z came in less than 4 weeks from ordering (just shy, but within the stated 3-4 weeks). It is a very substantial unit (it feels extremely dense and well made—the heft surprised me initially, having only used L2 adapters before). After...

    First experience with Lectron Supercharger adapter

    Is this just an abnormal station? Here I am charging my loaner R1S at the new Provincetown, MA supercharger last night on my newly arrived A2Z 😁—the station was empty so I tried a “worst case” location scenario, and it was nearly between the lines. Peak charge rate was 214kW, and it seems...

    Emblems - They're going away (again!)

    That's a bummer! Too bad they won't license them or work with you to offer official "Rivian approved/produced" black badge kits. I recently emailed your customer service address about getting just the rear letters in Satin Black. I already have the black and yellow R1T kit, but I decided I'd...
