My R1T was going go be delivered Tuesday, but was rescheduled out an additional two weeks. The turn-over specialist said the "Inspection" team was behind schedule. I suspect the "Inspection" team is really the "fix what wasn't quite right at the factory" team, and I'm happy if it saves me from future service.

QUESTION: What can I do do really take this serious off-roading and avoid the "Rocky-Mountain Pin-Striping" that my Tundra is cursed with? I've read all the threads on PPF, but those seem to be primarily for everyday/general use protection. What about for off-roading? My wife is not going to let me do the same thing I've done to the Tundra with this Rivian and I need something like this:

GOAT off-road armor

Unfortunately, the R1T has aluminum panels, so magnetic armor won't work. Any other ideas? Thanks!

GOAT is local to me and I had a conversation with them about this. They said that they might work on a solution for us, but it is low priority compared to other vehicles. I'm still contemplating PPF. Going to let my local installer do the front end next week, and I may attempt the rest myself.

I've decided the only real solution right now is PPF. I'm probably going to use one of the folks recommended on this forum up in Salt Lake (Logicc Protection Studio). Pretty pricey for the full job ($7500 quoted), but worth it to me to avoid the pin striping. I'm not too radical off-road, more of an occasional outing now and again. We'll see how well the PPF holds up under my use case. I'm drawn to the "matte" look, so I'll post some images of how the Launch Green looks under that matte film.
