The Rivian R1T is a popular electric pickup truck, and many owners are looking for third-party cross-bar options. Aftermarket companies have begun to offer solutions, such as Xtrusion Overland's modular rack system. This system can accept the Rivian crossbars over the bed, and have them sitting at the same exact height as the crossbars if mounted on the roof itself. Range Industries has also released a variation of their rack that sits 13.5” above the bed rails. It is made from CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum uprights and 6063 aluminum extrusion crossbars, with optional sheet metal side panels.

When it comes to transporting cargo, having a secure and reliable mounting system is essential. The Xtrusion Overland rack system offers a great solution for those looking for an aftermarket option for their Rivian R1T. The modular design allows for easy installation and removal, while providing a flat and level mounting surface from the cab to the ass-end of the truck. The Range Industries variation offers additional utility and support with its higher profile off the bed, making it ideal for carrying heavier items like solar panels.

It is important to note that beach laws differ greatly from state to state, and in Washington not all beaches are public land - in fact beaches can be private down to the LOW water mark.

With these options now available, drivers can safely transport their cargo without worrying about their mounting system failing or coming loose during transit.
