I'm hoping to get a soft-top canopy for my R1T. I contacted Bestop and they replied within minutes. They're hoping to find someone in CO who would be willing to drop by their shop with an R1T so that they can perform some quick measurements and evaluate making products for the R1T.

Here is the contact info, if anyone in CO has a truck and a bit of spare time. My bed-riding dogs thank you if you can be of help in getting canopies made for the R1T!

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Are you by chance local to us in Colorado? If so, would you be willing to allow us to use your truck for some measurements?

Once I have mine I'd be happy to volunteer if there's still a need.

Thanks, @kneebuster! Please feel free to email Matthew at Bestop. I suspect they might do a little thank you for your time. I really appreciate your offer to help!

You should only do it if they agree to NOT include garish logo placement above the rear window. They do it on every single top they make now. :(

The best part is all of the advertisements don't show it, and it's completely not removeable or easily coverable. Also - their rebates are basically a scam with pretty consistent meaningless denials.

FWIW, I was a huge proponent of them in the past. They made (and still make) some of the best stuff in town and their customer service was awesome! Their recent activity though ... oof.

Thanks again, @kneebuster.

As an aside: I spend time in many online forums for automotive stuff, and this Rivian community is one of the most helpful, friendly that I have seen. Getting good outcomes like jumpstarting accessories here is just one example of a positive outcome that communities can have.

Thanks!

In corresponding some months back with TireRack, they will also need Rivian's for various measurements, etc.
