I reserved my R1T on 12/08/2018 at the LA Auto Show, then I waited and waited (s00n was the cry) for my R1T to be a reality and when it was, I was amazed, thrilled, overjoyed and I still am all of those things. Sure, there are challenges, I understand, but this has been an amazing truck for me. 13,500 miles later.....how Rivian inspired me to venture forth is my own story and I'm sure many of yours.

Quite a few long time forum members have built products and showcased them here, so I thought I would do the same. Why? I had no way to lift my truck in the beginning days as I didn't have a spare which meant I didn't have a jack puck! So, I used an o ring design puck and it wouldn't even work on the front two jack locations on the truck and decided then and there, that a magnetic design was the solution, so after drilling my own (months ago), getting some basic NdFeB magnets, it kinda worked, but lacked the specific energy to hold tight.

Fast forward to the present and a few design updates along the way, I have actually designed, put into a Solid Works profile and released multiple CNC STEP drawings and am in production now. We used 5 high-energy NdFeB magnets, 6061 T6 aluminum, and anodized them Red. My background is physics related and I worked for years with high energy rare earth magnets, so we designed something that works and is robust enough to last a lifetime.

The pictures below are the pre-production version (I left the groove on as a symbol to me, it would be the end of o rings and grooves forever) and it's now in pre-sale for shipment to customers in 30 days. Response has been overwhelming already, but we thought it would be, so we're cutting metal now on hundreds upon hundreds of our NeoHOT (Neodymium - Hot for hot pressed) magnetic jack pucks.

When I launched the Magnetic Jack Pucks last week, we were first to the marketplace with a magnetic design and another supplier didn't seem to pleased by this, but we'll remain positive in the process. This was the first forum I joined in my Rivian journey and I appreciate your passion for Rivian's. If anyone has questions please feel free to reach out.

Congrats on the venture. Pretty cool paper weight too (and I am not being facetious).

I thought my R1T would come next year but I got the email with the VIN and I'm now in accessory mode. I just ordered. very clever idea, especially for those of us hat don't have a drill press. thanks for doing this. can't wait for the truck. I can wait to have to jack it up.

We've starting initial shipments and are still tracking for an early December delivery for all those that purchased on a pre-order basis from RivianStyle.com . We tried to create something that is mechanically solid and looks fantastic as well and I believe we did.

any chance you could sell some pucks with an additional machined recess on the jack side face for the head of a bottle jack to fit into? I would like to use a hydraulic bottle jack but not sure the puck would be stable with the size of the head... Im sure Im not the only one who would buy it...

I have a prototype I've done, the problem is you have to pick a certain bottle jack and then limit people to that because the fit needs to be reasonably tight on the tolerance. I think overall the best seller would be a USA Jack's version or a 12-ton harbor freight assuming the diameter of the top post is not too large.

Harbour Freight 12 ton has top diameter of 1.5, the 12 ton BigRed (Amazon $118) is 1.52.
My large production order for the - Rivian Style Magnetic Jack Pucks is still holding true for an early December shipment to all pre-order holders. I will pull a couple from the lot and bore them out to test a Harbor Freight 12 Ton bottle jack.
