    $1600!!!! I guess that's the reason to go DIY.
  2. DIY Hitch mounted spare tire swing-out carrier for R1T

    Any reason for building one vs buying one? (ie, comparability, size, weight, etc.?)
  3. Official email from Rivian offering Binding Purchase Agreement

    On one side of the fence. That's the point, push manufacturers to make a cheaper EV. On the other side of the fence. If it's not profitable for automakers to make an EV...they won't.
  4. Rivian to offer Binding Purchase Agreements (to help obtain EV tax credit)

    Did my daily check this AM. Still no agreement ready, same language in chat.
  5. Did Rivian’s generous 5/60k warranty factory influence your purchase decision?

    I have the same concern. Then I realized, if Lordstown and Fisker still exist. Rivian will be fine..
  6. Rivian to offer Binding Purchase Agreements (to help obtain EV tax credit)

    Maybe now. But point in time I was order #1 and they were pretty concerned about the conversion rates. I’d say it’s time to change dealers. Mine hasn’t been terrible, but I still prefer a direct sales model…just with more competition/private service centers and a right to repair law
  7. Rivian to offer Binding Purchase Agreements (to help obtain EV tax credit)

    Thats correct, anyone who deferred will get a credit, but I don’t know the amount. I don’t think I was that low. I got my reservation email around 9:45pm on the 19th. Ordering opened for me Jan 6th? I’ve been high on the R1T so I didn’t actually order when it opened up. My dealer called me...
  8. Rivian to offer Binding Purchase Agreements (to help obtain EV tax credit)

    The extended range pro can only be ordered by commercial/fleet customers. Standard range Pros were available to retail customers. I have a Pro with no markup. OTD after all rebates is approximately $30k. That same truck would now bump me out of state incentives from the price increase and if I...
  9. Rivian to offer Binding Purchase Agreements (to help obtain EV tax credit)

    I specifically asked if it was an opt in situation and was told they don’t have any further information right now. They’re still working on it. It sounds like it’s a blanket answer until they figure it out. They better move fast..
  10. Rivian R1T vs F-150 Lightning Tug of War

    Do we have a recovery point in the rear? Or is the soft shackle/hitch pin the best of available options there?
  11. Rivian R1T vs F-150 Lightning Tug of War

    So a shackle hitch wouldn't be good either right? I'd imagine that can also snap, either at the pin or at the bolts. What would be the proper way? Double shackle to the hitch directly?
  12. Rivian R1T vs F-150 Lightning Tug of War

    I don’t do any recovery, so asking to be educated. Would you have the same concerns if he used a shackle hitch? (Ie, concerns about snapping a pin) or is this more about the weakness in the weld of the ball?
  13. Rivian R1T vs F-150 Lightning Tug of War

    I was just about to say that, but not alone. There’s just too many factors. Weight, torque, individual motors hunting for and controlling traction, and the 20” all terrains. Take away the all terrains and …the R1T would still win. But the F-150L would have a better chance. Put it in conserve and...
  14. Possible Major Security issue with Alarm system

    Is there a shock sensor if someone were to hit the window?
  15. Rear Seat Entertainment - iPad or iPad mini case or mount?

    Does anyone have any recommendation for iPad or iPad mini cases or any other type of mount really that fit securely on the hooks of the front seat? I know it could hang there but looking for a way to make it a bit more secure.
  16. Let Us Sign Buyers Agreements: A Letter to RJ

    Or even worse if value is the primary concern, and off roading is not the primary reason for buying an R1T, how much more would it be worth over a F-150L Pro? My F-150L PRO is $30,000 OTD after all rebates and credits. My R1T is currently $68,500 OTD after all rebates and credits. That’s...
  17. I have access to the shop now, but I don't like any of the configurations

    So everything outside of SLC, UT = city slickers? And no off reading exists outside of there?
  18. I have access to the shop now, but I don't like any of the configurations

    The green interior looked pretty good in the configuration, with the best wood option. But I really didn’t like it in person. To each their own As for the city slickers. What do you define as off road? 80% of the roads in my town are unpaved. On a 5 mile drive to drop my kids off at school...
  19. Rivian Service Centers / Retail Locations List / Other Facilities (Pics & Updates)

    Can Rivian legally sell in NJ? I remember reading this in thee news about a direct sales battle. I just looked up the law: 6. (New section) Notwithstanding the provisions of any law, rule or regulation to the contrary, a motor vehicle franchisor licensed pursuant to R.S.39:10-19 on or prior...
  20. Is rear-wheel drive mode possible in OTA update?

    You don't like jokes huh? Less steering and more 1/4 drag races should solve that problem!
