    Anyone looking at getting a snow plow attaching to front hooks?

    Other forum posters have complained about the incredible acceleration in reverse. I sense an interesting solution to your problem.... at least less foolish than doing donuts in a lake or playing tug of war using a trailer hitch.

    Can the underbody shield be added later?

    My understanding from other forum posts is: No. I worry that may be true as well for the winch, which Rivian removed from the configuration choices long ago but claimed will add back later. And I'd prefer not to have an after market winch that runs on the 12V computer battery, when I could have...

    I am. Plus I am hoping November/December will have trucks produced with: Properly tightened and secured bolts for the underbody, alignment, suspension, bed interior, ... am I missing any mentioned here in the forum? Other various sources of clicking, clacking and clunking noises (CV joint?)...

    What's first for OC batch builds?

    We're finally seeing batches of Adventure builds with addons like reinforced underbody. Will Rivian start with those configs (Adventure, 20" ATs, underbody) first when pivoting to Ocean Coast interiors (fewest changes to their batch setup), or will they reset to the simple configs first when...

    Comparing your R1T to your previous truck (1500 Limited in my case)

    As I loaded hundreds of pounds of paving stones into my Model S, some dude walked by and said, "nice truck." It is, thank you. I will use my toys as trucks if I want. At least the R1T has an open bed. If the Subaru Baja were a four motor EV then perhaps I'd be reading those forums while watching...

    What is the feature that people respond to when they approach

    It's so funny how dudes will rush to help a guy struggling with a manly task. Years ago I broke down in rural Texas at a gas station, and a parade of dudes wanted to impress their arm-ladies by offering to help. I was under the car and looked like I knew what I was doing, so I guess they figured...

    Comparing your R1T to your previous truck (1500 Limited in my case)

    I miss my parent's beat up old Dodge (pictured here in '98). One headlight sagged like a stroke victim, and the driver's door would swing open on its own on hard right turns. The passenger door was a different color and had the logo of a construction crew, so we kept a few parking cones in back...

    Is rear-wheel drive mode possible in OTA update?

    It's a shame Rivian doesn't offer coast mode (no regen breaking) at least when using Conserve. The front tires are certainly going to wear faster if the back don't get to participate in slowing the vehicle down. That said, I won't be using coast or Conserve much, lest I regret my choice of 20" ATs.

    Can we rely on 12V power for appliances?

    I've heard of EVs getting bricked when their tiny 12V battery were taxed too much and couldn't power the computer system. Can we rely on the Rivian 12V for extended use with portable coolers, etc? Rivian used to have a winch option but removed it, and I really hope they're designing one to use...
