The Rivian R1T is the perfect vehicle to tackle the outdoors. Its high ground clearance and individual wheel control enable it to navigate rocky terrain with ease. Even the most capable vehicles and drivers, however, can get hung-up on rocks and logs, which can result serious rocker panel damage or worse. Rock sliders help guard against this off-road hazard to keep your truck protected.
Unsatisfied with current Rivian offerings, a team of early owners and longtime off-roaders assembled to engineer the strongest rock slider on the market that can serve as an R1T running board, yet stand up to even the most punishing abuse. What they arrived at is the latest product from Megawatt™ performance products.
Make no mistake, this product is a rock slider first with the added benefit of serving as a convenient Rivian step. Conflating these two types of accessories can put you and your truck as risk. Given the weight of the Rivian R1T, and the potential for extreme forces while off-roading, we felt a purpose-built protection solution be crafted first. Only then could added features like a running board step be added.
The Rivian R1T has a curb weight of over 7,100 lbs. That is close the weight of a Dodge RAM 3500 MegaCab. As such, we used proven slider methods for vehicles like these to benchmark the Megawatt™ Rivian R1T rock slider. We then adapted this formula to fit the lines and unique architecture of the Rivian. The result is not only a rock solid, highly functional slider, but a side-step that looks great.
