When it said rivian people still asked. No real difference. People think rivian is a model made by one of the big 3.

Nice look, did you use a heat gun, some thin wire, and then buff it out?

Personally, I would do the same (R1S in 2023, lol), but try to get a hold of a spare "compass" logo and center it on the rear.

just used some dental floss, goo gone, and spray car wash. you probably don't want to use any kind of metal wire. Dental floss (or even nylon fishing line) is thin enough to cut the adhesive but not damage the finish; Goo gone to dissolve any leftover sticky residue; and then spray car wash to just clean it up once you have it all done.

In another post, someone said they were asked if it was a Honda…. 🤭

lol which is ironic because someone posted higher up the Simpson's clip
"What's the point in having a Honda if you can't show it off"

For the 1 of you out there that may be interested in knowing, the badging removal gives me 3 oz in weight savings! lmao

This one, that one and the other one.
When everyone asks me what it is, because the name "Rivian" is a foreign word to most people, I simply point at the name on the truck so they can visualize and see it for themselves. Otherwise, they always follow with "but who makes it", or "huh". For that reason alone, leaving on my logos. Personally not a fan of the yellow outlining. Wish mine just had the chrome letters. But, it is what it is.

At least Rivian gives you the option. All of these newer trucks with their 4' wide name stamped into the tailgate just bothers me. Like the OP, I prefer the cleaner, debadged look on most everything.

To each his own. I never understood de-badging a vehicle.
It depends on the vehicle, I've seen a few absurd pictures of Make, Model, random marketing/branding ie. SkyActiv, etc. But by the time you add in a dealership badge (or two) the rear of the vehicle may look like a billboard. I don't particularly like the "naked" look. The "R1T" badge on the Rivian is the weakest in my opionin so i'd take that one and probably leave the big RIVIAN on the rear.
