What do you think would be the best way out? I wonder if Rock Crawl mode without the MaxTrax would have worked. Someone on YouTube suggested Rally mode might have worked. I am really interested to figure out the best settings in different off-road situations. Enjoy the video... I'll keep you posted on how Rivian does with getting me the replacement parts...

Whatever setting acts like a triple locker. That is that spins all 4 wheels at a consistent rate. Looked like rock crawl mode did that. Also tires did not appear to be aired down.

The issue here wasn’t drive mode but poor wheel/tires. 34” tires on 17” rims aired down 30-40% would have behaved much different. In situations like this you need to be aired down and on a 20” rim it doesn’t leave much room. Also I would have lowered the suspension, some of the issue looked like the drivers rear was off the bottom due to poor articulation.

overall I’d say #1 factor was wheels/tires, #2 poor articulation, #3 drive modes.
