    1up rack fitment on bed crossbars

    Add me in the 1Up roof rack camp. I'm completely satisfied. Quality product and a reasonable price. The only downside is the bike is pretty high and I can't pull into my garage with it on the truck... But all things considered, this is the best way to carry bikes with a R1T, imo.

    Wall charger installation at home - suggestions and recommendations? ⚡️⚡️

    That is basically my plan for when we replace my wife's ICE vehicle with an EV. I'm going to use an oscillating multi-tool to cut the side trim about 1" higher so I can tuck the charging cord under the trim and the door will still close.

    Does your driver instrument panel show "A" next to the current ride height? When mine is in Auto, I see the "A" and it does switch between Standard and Low, based on speed. Sometimes it takes a minute or two to adjust down -- I think it wants to ensure you're going to maintain that speed...

    Why exactly is it so cumbersome to use the multitude of charging networks?

    That must be amortized over many stations and many locations, which are all cherry-picked for efficient installation cost. Several other sources indicate costs are much higher for non-Tesla Supercharger installations. EVGo, for example, says a 350kW DCFC costs $128k-150k for the equipment...

    Some thoughts about the R1T after one month

    you shouldn’t ride the brake pedal. fine to keep your foot “ready’ but dont physically touch the pedal until you want to brake.

    Why exactly is it so cumbersome to use the multitude of charging networks?

    L2 stations are just glorified outlets, but those tend to be incredibly reliable and affordable, already. It’s the DCFC stations that have reliability issues — but they are much more than a “glorified” outlet. They have expensive circuitry and massive power requirements. Those stations easily...

    Did Rivian’s generous 5/60k warranty factory influence your purchase decision?

    Lexus, Mercedes, Acura, BMW, Audi... All only 4 year warranty. "Luxury" has nothing to do with it.

    Did Rivian’s generous 5/60k warranty factory influence your purchase decision?

    It put my mind at ease, a little. Although I'm getting nervous, again, as they seem unable to handle the service load of their deliveries, thus far, and their plans to ramp production are obvious but their plans to ramp service are not.

    What do you want addressed in the next OTA update?

    Yea, I do it as soon as I get home. But the last update came while I was at work, and I drove to lunch, then ran some errands after work, then went out to dinner... Didn't want to update until I was back in my garage and knew I didn't need to go anywhere for a couple hours.

    What do you want addressed in the next OTA update?

    that's the point... it shows up ever. damn. time. I get in the truck. I want to be able to snooze it and not see it for some period of time.

    Been pretty great for me. I only use it when I want to drive "spirited" however.

    It's direct control. It isn't "filtering" or "dumbing-down" the process. ICE vehicles don't have regen, so of course when you lift off the throttle you don't get significant braking, right away (just a little from engine compression braking).

    Isn’t the point of sport mode to have sharp response? Other modes can numb the pedal feel, but sport is supposed to be “direct”.

    Spare Tire / Reinforced Underbody

    Add it to your configuration and wait for them to build your truck. Or are you seriously pulling the toddler card of demanding it RIGHT MEOW?? I got a spare from the Shop. If you have access, keep checking, and buy when a config pops up that you're okay with.

    Why are you using Sport mode if your primary concern is passenger comfort? Seems you may be misusing the modes.

    Rivian has mentioned off-road recovery possibly being a feature of their to-be-announced membership.

    Then buy the spare. Not rocket surgery.

    Spare Tire / Reinforced Underbody

    If YOU don't buy a spare, then sure. You could call roadside assistance. If YOU don't buy lunch, you don't eat. If YOU don't brush your teeth, your breath will stink. What is ridiculous about this? It's simple. If I buy a Silver R1T it isn't Black. How ridiculous! LOL

    Spare Tire / Reinforced Underbody

    If you don't order a spare then you get no spare, at all.
