It's been a year since I made a reservation and I am so ready to do my trim configurations. Anyway, when I went to the local event to see the vehicles last year the rep said there was no plan to have a winch mount space in the front. Are there companies working with Rivian to make such aftermarket items? I do a lot of significant off-pavement/off-road fieldwork and I can say that no matter how much power a vehicle has, you can still get stuck. Also, you may need a winch to pull out your buddies' truck or a tree on the track. It's a typical 4x4 item.

I have the same question regarding other aftermarket bits (stuff like frame supported roof rack, awning, overlanding type stuff). I'm not/wouldn't normally be overly concerned about "voiding a warranty" but in this instance I'm not sure I'd want a "regular mechanic" tinkering around with a "car" that may actually be more akin to a computer. I'm not an expert when it comes to cars or computers FWIW.

I would be interested in know if Rivian has a connection for a tower or at least a solid point of connection in front. I would think the front hooks would be a solid point of connection if I need to go to an aftermarket supplier. Anyone else have this concern?
