Ok folks, I didn't see a thread on here that was discussing what aftermarket accessories or care products folks were planning to use/purchase when they take delivery of their R1T so I thought I would get things started with my list. I'm only listing non-RIVIAN branded products in my list below as folks have already started covering those in other threads.

This is only a partial list so add yours and lets inspire each other with new products or provide feedback on existing ones!

Accessories
  1. Floor Mats: Weathertech
    1. Normally, I would purchase weathertech mats, but I have ordered the RIVIAN ones and suspect they will be just as good.
  2. Custom Sun Shade: Heatshield
    1. I know some will tint their front windshields, but I'm not really interested in the cost. These custom sun shades are cut specifically for your car and can be used in the winter to attract heat and summer to repel heat (different material on each side).
  3. Frunk Cooler: Dometic Ice Cooler
    1. Since the frunk isn't vented, not sure it will be a good idea to have a powered fridge in the frunk.
  4. Tesla Charging Adapter: Tesla to J1772 Adapter
    1. I have one of these and have used it several times at hotels where there are tesla destination chargers. Pricey, but a must have for being prepared and having maximum charging options.
  5. Screen Protector for Main Display
    1. Will be a must have to protect that big glass display but I have not been able to find anyone who has made one yet.
  6. Console Organizer
    1. The lack of a glove box means you will need to use the console in the same vein but all appearances are that it is a cavernous hole. An organizer to maximize the utility of the space will be a must have.
  7. Heavy Duty Tire Jack: Pro Eagle Off Road Jack
    1. From what I have read/seen, the included jack doesn't inspire confidence so I will likely want to have an upgrade around just in case.
Care + Protection Products
  1. Paint Sealant + Polish kit by Klasse
    1. Been using this for 20 years and as I have mentioned many times before, I'm not a fan of ceramic coatings on paint due to the disproportionate cost vs. durability. Klasse offers protection up to 12 months, has an amazing deep shine, and requires no expensive paint prep. Detailers will apply it for the cost of a typical wax/detail.
  2. Xpel PPF/Window Tint
    1. I have been putting PPF on my cars since 2007 and as long as it is properly applied, is well worth the cost. I typically do the partial kit (bumper, fenders, partial hood, mirrors and headlights).
    2. Window tint is a necessity for keeping UV from destroying the interior and keeping the car cooler during the hot summer months.
  3. Leather Care: Gyeon Quartz Leather Kit
    1. I have used this on the last two vehicles and this is where I think ceramic coating has its benefits because you do not have to do expensive and labor intensive corrections to your vegan leather to apply this. So far, after 2 years I have been impressed with the ability to protect leather seats in our C-Max and prevent dye transfer.
  4. Car Wash Soap: Chemical Guys Ceramic Wash
    1. This stuff foams up like you wouldn't believe and unlike a $2,500 ceramic coating job, allows you to get some of the benefits of ceramic without breaking the bank. Can be used with paint sealant as well.
  5. Plastic+Trim: Cerakote Trim Protection
    1. Easy to apply and durable enough to survive a winter/salt season. Really does make trim look brand new again.
  6. Rain-X
    1. Really does improve visibility and snow/ice comes off the windshield much easier. I find it most helpful on the headlights to keep snow/dirt off.
  7. Interior Cleaner/Protectant: Chemical Guys
    1. Been using this on my i3 dashboard which is natural wood and it works wonders. Since the R1T has a lot of wood trim, we will need something to keep it looking good.
Your item #3, the Gyeon Quartz Leather kit (Leatherset Mild), has been unavailable for the past month and a half. The Leatherset Strong kit might still be available. I asked, on Amazon, what was the difference between the kits, but got no response.

Thanks for catching that. There is another leather kit by the same company and I've updated the link to Amazon for this kit.

Accessories I've purchased so far:

Sunshade: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BVVL23ZY?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

Review: 10/10, 2 minute install, looks OEM, no clips or seams or creases. I'll leave this permanently installed, as it cuts down on heat, reduces range loss due to excess A/C needed, reduced chance of cancer, the list goes on and on. The all-glass roof is a nice party trick, but I'm over it.

Drive Cam / Gear Guard flash drive: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09WB2NL8W?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

Review: No issues so far, it has recorded videos, I've watched them, appears to be working great.

Gear Tunnel Organizer: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DD74N6V?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

Review: You can purchase TWO of these, and they fit perfect into the gear tunnel. The slide out with ease, and they provide adjustable compartments. I have bike helmets, gear, tools, and more all organized now. You can pull it right out onto the gear tunnel door when open, and slide it right back in. Requires a slight twist to slide in/out, as the gear tunnel is a bit crooked or whatever, but after 2 days I have it down pat. The gear tunnel feels FUNCTIONAL now!

All weather floor mats: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BWMHXSL8?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

Review: Returning these, they don't clip in, and the passenger side mat was warped at the sill, creating a tripping hazard.

All weather floor mats 2nd attempt: https://evsportline.com/collections...der-for-rivian-r1t-r1s?variant=41566298374284

Review: Awaiting product to come in.

Console organizer: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0C6FPTDTS?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

I like that tunnel organizer. Good find.

I ran that same Samsung flash drive in my truck for a while. I switched it out for a 2TB SSD drive. I did this because of the wear leveling and the way the internal operating system will monitor and replace bad memory cells from a pool of reserve memory. Just a thought.

Did you run into a specific error or anything with the 256GB flash drive? I was going to order a 512GB or larger, but couldn't find them, or the sticks were too big (afraid of hitting it and breaking the port). I believe I ran 32-64GB flash drives in my previous 4 Tesla's... never had an issue (except occasionally an error and it'd need to reformat to fix itself).. but not sure how Rivian differs? I was trying to find information about how it overwrites old data, but I haven't seen much info on that. I thought I saw a chart way back in the day on Tesla's showing roughly how many drive hours would be recorded before being overwritten, and I thought it basically recorded 1-2 weeks worth on 32-64GB, which would seem more than enough in most instances. 256GB could be a month, maybe? But I have no idea if the cameras are higher resolution or it's better/worse coding efficiency, etc.

I had no errors. But do to the nature of the use, I wanted to have a more robust drive. I have had thumb drives go bad with photo/video storage. Including Samsung ones.

Totally agree about the glass roof and I'm going to buy that sunshade today. I was going to get IR reflecting tint, but this is probably cheaper, and easier to remove should someone else chooses to do so. I doubt that I will.

Nice! Thanks for the post. This is great stuff. Any way you can post a pic of the sunshade?

I think that might be a great option for folks who don't want to go to the expense of tinting an alredy tinted roof.

See pic. When installing you actually pull down a bit on the ceiling panels, and it wedges above it and between the glass. Looks awesome installed.

This is the same brand I put in mine. I like that when installed, there are no wrinkles as it fits very well. It is also very effective for reducing the sun heating effect.

That looks fantastic! It appears to blend in really well.

Does anyone remember the electrochromic roof Rivian was showing off at the LA Auto Show? That would certainly come in handy now, but honestly this looks to be a great solution.

Thanks for posting.

Interior temp was 135-137° the day before I installed the sunshade. Roughly same exterior temperature (80°) the next day after installation, and the app was saying 103-105°. So I'd say it safely cools it ~30°+ which is pretty crazy to me. Will protect the interior, anything inside, extend range, etc. Not really a downside imo, once you get over the glass wow effect when looking up.

That is a very impressive temperature difference. Are you also using a shade for the windshield?
