Hi,
I am Sully. I just ordered last week even though I wanted to order at launch. It has taken me this long to convince my wife:)

I currently drive a 2008 Jeep Wrangler JKU with a 4” lift, 37’s and a lot of added steel in the bumpers, rock rails, etc.

We camp quite a bit, ride bikes, and take a lot of trips with the kids and the dog, so we are looking at the R1S. Either the 135 or the 180 kWH.

Rock on, welcome. Fellow Jeeping (built on 37s), camping, biking, kidding (3), & dogging guy here. ;-)

Same here, I finally convinced her. Ended up getting the R1S since the doggies will fit better in the back and carry the Kayak on the roof. No kids, so ill prob stick with the 5 seater.

Drive a '19 Toy 4Runner TRD-offroad. Love its abilities off-road but old, laggy engine (bulletproof but under-powered). Styling is "manly" but growing stale. Virtually zero tech - no sensor tech, like a 5" screen with ancient interface, etc. Gets maybe 15 mpg in regular driving. Rock-solid just no jazz.

Have a deposit on new Ford Bronco.. managed to get it evening of reveal when ford's website was crashing and pissing everyone off. Still, realistically don't anticipate actually ready to possess until late spring or summer 2021. That puts it around time when Rivian's selling off the line finally. Conflicted between the retro-modern look and capabilities of the Bronco versus ALL THE APPEAL of Rivian EV and vehicle tech. Apples and oranges, I really love both but cannot afford a fruit basket.

Love the new Bronco look. I would be in the same boat if the manual was available with the larger engine
