R1S LE in LE Green & Forest Edge (8/14/2019 Preorder) Oct-Dec 2022 Arrival
I like your Gladiator by the way. They intrigue me as an off-road vehicle that probably won’t be how our R1S is used.Hello everyone from Northeastern Illinois!
Very glad to have found this forum, along with the great folks on the Rivian Facebook page and the r/Rivian Reddit thread.
I've long wanted to make the jump into EVs but couldn't find a vehicle that fit my "lifestyle". I'm a current 2020 Jeep Gladiator owner who does light off-roading and lots of mall-crawling. The R1T will be a perfect fit for me and my family and it's being introduced at a time when I am at a fortunate point in my career to be able to afford the performance and ability of the Rivian.
As Jeep owners know, there's something to be said about making a vehicle your own and not like anyone else's so I am looking forward to seeing what kind of aftermarket toys (winch, tires, bed racks, etc) come available.
Thank you all for your posts and the knowledge that you've shared. I hope to be a productive member of the forums!
