    Rivian continues to miss out on revenue

    Rivian could really use some good news and more revenue. The charger ratings on the software update is nice but investors want to hear about revenue. Where on Earth are the subscriptions? All the way back in December, Rivian was supposed to start charging customers for the ATT LTE connection...

    Solid Floor Dog Hammock

    I saw this advertised on Facebook today. https://skyliette.com/products/doggyride I’m just curious if anyone else has tried this. I like that it has a solid floor for you dogs but they don’t show any dimensions. It just says it’ll fit any vehicle, which is BS. If it fits in my Rivian, it’s...

    Charge Overland YouTube: Falken A/T4W on the Rivian

    In Conserve Mode he achieved 1.85mi/kWh compared to 2.09mi/kWh He had a Thule roof rack and an iKamper tent on the back when he tested with both tires. So the Pirelli still wins on efficiency. Of course the Falkens are very much more capable off road and they show to be a lot more durable...

    Finally charged at a Tesla Magic Dock Supercharger

    Yesterday I was out for my son’s birthday. Drove all over the place and found my truck at 19% SoC with a decent distance left to drive home. Fortunately there was a relatively new Tesla Supercharger, at nearby Northglenn, CO, with a Magic Dock. So I set it on my nav to begin preconditioning and...

    Rattle from replacement Power Tonneau

    My powered tonneau was replaced last Wednesday. The next day, I noticed a very significant rattle coming from the back of the truck. After some quick checking I found that the rattle only occurs when the tonneau is in the closed position. If I completely open it up, there is no rattle at all...

    Still dealing with insurance but ordered a new R1T

    Today I got a bit fed up with Nationwide. They’ve been taking way to long to get our claim settled so I can get into a new R1T. They stated it’s taking a long time to get the assessment done so they can determine the final payout. For those that don’t know. Our truck was totaled after an...

    Toyota Touts 745-mile range, 10 minute charge for Solid-State battery

    IF Toyota can successfully bring this to market it definitely close the use case gap that justifies ICE based vehicles. IMO, 10 minutes for charging is more important than the range. If we can get 300+ miles of range in 10 minutes or less, it’s game over for ICE. Only diehards and collectors...

    We're OK, but our R1T is not..... rear ended accident

    😭😭😭😭 Today I had the most expensive trip to IKEA without buying a damn thing. It was wet and rainy and the guy behind me wasn't quick on the stop. He got a face full of air bag and distroyed his otherwise lovely X-Terra that he said he paid off just a couple of months ago. I was well behind the...

    He points out many of the issues we’ve all seen. At the end he believes he would have bought the Ford Lightning instead. He did have an pretty early R1T. Among his chief complaints: 1. Poor service at the beginning (calling it ”wonky and weird”), but he says that did improve greatly. 2...
