Sorry, just to confirm as I'm relatively new here, these are L2 chargers?

yes a level 3 or fast charger uses the two lower holes for the DC fast charging. The plug and the charging unit is much bigger.

An L2 "charger" is really only a contactor plus some support electronics. The actual charger is in the car. The smallest (40 - 50 kW) L3 chargers are generally about this size. They contain the actual charger as well as the support electronics and contactor. Note also the fairly hefty stepdown transformer to the left of and behind the actual charger.

Hey! I’m actually the big[ish] guy getting into the back seat (thanks for not calling me fat 😅!)

Getting into the backseat was not that difficult all things considered. It was easier than getting into the front seat of most car to be honest. I ended up with about 2 inches of Knee room and plenty of Leg room. I actually found it road trip-able back there!

I then immediately jumped into the front seat without adjusting and also had enough room to trip…and I’m nearly 6’3”.

Great truck! Fall ’20 reservtion holder So it‘ll probably be a while but I’m really excited. This experience kept me from changing my build From Ocean Coast. It’s a great color.
Welcome to the group! And thanks for posting your experience.
