Step 1: navigate to supercharger
Step 2: park at charger stall
Step 3: increase to maximum ride height
Step 4: plug in
Step 5: relax
Sorry, you should have said "increase ride height". There is no evidence whatsoever that that is the maximum, only that it is higher than the other one.

Correct, it goes much higher than that.

I'm neither a low rider nor a lifted driver. I'm like that Eagles song, "Take it to the Limit". I'll be parking mine in our driveway as low as it will go. And take it all the way up, to go rock crawling.

BTW, that looks like about an 8" difference in heights between those 2 trucks. And I thought that was maximum adjustment in heights.

He's a retired Coastie. And a couple years ago I added that stripe on an image for him. BTW it's the correct direction. :)
I thought it was, but when I looked it up apparently the name is supposed to be on the left and the stripes and logo on the right - but! Towards the front if it's on a vehicle. So I got confused and couldn't find anything but helicopters which have a slightly different livery.

Much of the time I'll be using mine as a "sedan", basically replacing my amazingly-great-but-getting-pretty-old Mercedes E350's services, and driving it at "sedan" height.

When I need to haul my music equipment to a show, it will replace my cosmetically shabby but mechanically solid Yukon XL truck, and I'll use the squat mode to load and unload it, along with ramps at the venue. (The vault cover is an absolute necessity for this use because of both security and weather protection.). Occasionally I'll lift it up as needed to get into some of the trickier venue accesses or maybe to better line up the bed with a loading floor. For this, I hope the range of adjustment is greater than 8", but even that much would help. These height adjustments will also help with general hauling and loading chores, too.

I might even drive it in "sport mode" sometimes, in its lowest driving position (if that's possible), to remind me of my Corvette that I'll probably sell if the CT is as frisky as I think it can be.

I won't be taking it off road on purpose, but there will likely be times when it makes sense to raise the truck up to drive it on a badly maintained gravel road or just to get a better look at the traffic.

For me, choice of ride and load height in the Cybertruck will be a new thing and transformative. I'm looking forward to using that to make the truck as functional, comfortable, and fun as possible. As a huge bonus I'll be replacing at least two, and maybe three, ICE vehicles. :cool:

Yeah, I play and shoot a lot and often have extremely valuable guns and guitars in the bed and the vault is a godsend for me.

As a practical matter, you'll want to do most of your miles at the height that keeps the axle shafts the straightest. That will minimize wear on the cv joints and maximize the life of them.
I don't imagine that these half-shafts are all that hard to replace, but still.
