Hubcaps have been murdered out. I like the look compared to the original color.

Such a good looking truck with those aero covers and beefy tires.
I personally don't like the wheel covers. Mostly because they stick out beyond the tires, which is a no-no for offroad.
But this photo also reminded me of one of the huge improvements they've made with the newer prototypes. The area behind the rear window on the first prototype was horrible for aero. They've made it much better for aero. Here's before and after.

So begs the question
Cyber rodeo, people were claiming the guy that was standing with the truck on the podium / platform was in fact the original truck (this one) but it was modified to no longer have handles and now have a windshield wiper and different tailgate

clearly that wasn’t the case. And so the question is.. how many trucks do they have?? At least 3 it appears.
1. Podium truck / Giga Texas display
2. Driven unit on stage, I think that’s also the truck that went to michigan
3. The OG

It makes sense that they freeze the reveal night prototype. They can modify the others all day long and display them as work in progress. We expect some changes, but it is nice to have a solid baseline.
