    So I just saw the video/pictures from the Venice hub of the R1S...very nice thanks everyone who posted/took the time, looking forward to it. But here's the thing, the T is a truck with a truck bed that is meant to have things thrown/loaded into to haul around. Yet the cheapest of cheap...

    Dark Spokes: A way for Rivian to cut some cost?

    So I applied the T Wraps "Satin Black" SPOKES VINYL COVERS today. I like the look WAY better than with the milled Finish look. I thought it's worth a Poll: What do you think is better: Darkened Finish or Milled Finish. Rivian could save a step in making the wheels by just skipping the milling IMO.

    Coolers in bed - Yeti Roadie 24 fits under tonneau cover

    For your consumption. This is a Yeti Roadie 24. Bought because it fits wife's wine bottle standing up. Barely, just barely fits under tonneau cover, so much so that cover rests on the cooler. Other cooler fit "questions" or ideas? I have a Pelican 70Qt and an Igloo Trailmate on wheels - not a...

    RSC now has whole building.

    Had my T delivered yesterday. Driver, David, was a great guy and very helpful. But per the title, he mentioned the other tenant at Dabney road has left and now Rivian has the whole building to themselves. Since they are solo now, also adding more service bay/s and maybe some customer area...

    21" Wheel weight as delivered

    Has anyone, or could someone, taken a 21" wheel off their R1T to weigh it? I know the 21" factory tire weighs about 37 lbs. This will factor into my choice of alternative road tire for the 20" wheel. We know the 20" AT combo weighs around 88lbs, tire is 49 lbs, wheel is 39lbs, thanks to...

    Sitting Level when off

    There is a large industry within the ICE pickup community for making leveling kits for 4WD pickups. Reason: OEM seems to always make the front sit lower than the rear by maybe 1 to 2 inches. Personally, hate that unlevel look. Does the R1T sit level or is it lower in front? If not level...

    So is Samsung SDI battery supplier for the first batches of vehicles? Anyone have a snapshot of the battery label as it sits post-delivery? Where are they made, city and state, what is the full capacity in kWh and what is the user able to access? Thanks, Dirty_B
