These need to be added as adventure gear options!
It does look very functional however it may get noisy when you get off-road withe everything bouncing around.

p.s. I loved that he said it may take hit on range ”but at least it is available “. I am not sure if it was a remark about Cybertruck or Silverado but I liked it. (Min 7)

I need those slide out drawers!

Gear tunnel organization leaves a bit to be desired for me at the moment.

The pull out drawers look great. Anyone source the supplier yet? They have to be available, not custom.

No problem. You should be able to see these options in the bottom of each of your posts:

Why can't they be custom?

Why wouldn’t they be made in-house?
They certainly look it.

same with the cover for the back seats.

the containers in the back seat are clearly tanus ones or similar though.

There's one thing missing *and yes, you can take this idea and run with it* but -

An EV "rescue" vehicle needs to have a HUGE bank of batteries in the back (think something like 4-5 powerwall, yes, I've checked the weight and throughput) so that it can deliver a huge push of juice quickly (ie miles per minute) so that it can recharge a stranded EV. Yes, it could draw from the Rivians own battery, but with a payload of 1700lbs, it wouldn't need to if it had a battery bank in the back.

I've already thought about it because we often see ICE cars run out of juice on the bridges in Seattle (no clue WHY but they always seem to die in the middle of the bridge). Soon comes 2030 (no ICE in WA state) and = Imagine the "Rescue Rivian" pulling up, juicing up the dead EV in minutes, and getting them out of the way.

There will be enough Lightnings with 240V on the road to get R1Ts to the nearest DCFC ;)

kidding aside, I think there are aready businesses that are trying to corner that market.
