This is quite possibly the most aligned rear tail light I’ve seen on all the current cybertrucks.
The matte black one franz was driving the other day was terribly misaligned and same goes for other previous cybertrucks posted driving around.
Anyone else notice this too? Or just me? 😳

I agree these two trucks and the newer stuff driving around Austin should be the ones people look to.

From what I see on the video , if those other cars in the video made it through the trail at this location, then it is safe to say I wouldn't call it extreme offroad conditions, just saying

wheelbase of an F150

Typical offroad modifications unwise because wheel wells are packed with ‘technology bandwagon’

CyberTruck is never going to be an ideal trail pig, rock crawler, or mudder

But it’ll be better than a standard full sized truck, while having similar cargo capacity

Oh, come on. Just needs a couple small mods and it will be fine.

wow combative response , nothing in your life , I am sorry
Not sure how that was combative? It is a logical response to your post asking a legit question.

These pictures are teasers and any off-road capability is being held back until after the release event

You think it's teasers but the alternate explanation is tempering expectations, i.e., softening the blow after all the years of talk about how the CT was going to be an absolute beast of a truck.

The suspension components that people have taken pictures of would be considered sub-par if they were on other factory vehicles with "off-road capabilities".

Someone will get a more recent picture of the suspension components. I suspect the bent ones were more of a temporary solution and we'll see the final cast version soon.

For a pick up though it should do well compared to std 4wd F150/Ram 1500/Silverado. We will find out soon enough.
I don't think the any level headed members are comparing it to a TRX/Raptor/Rubicon etc.

I think it will outrun all those trucks. (I mean, we compare it to a Porche 911...)

Take a look at “off-road” vehicles. Name a single vehicle that dominates every type of off-road condition. Go ahead, I’ll wait…

You need a different vehicle for rock crawling, mudding, fire trail running, hill climbing, downhilling, etc. No single vehicle dominates them all. That‘s because what works for one is a hinderance for another. The CT is no different. And being a “beast of a truck” doesn’t mean it dominates any off-road event. Trucks are used for all sorts of things that have nothing to do with off-road. So, you can have “a beast of a truck” that isn’t the ultimate off-road vehicle, or rock climber, or mudder, or whatever. With all the differences in needs, to me, a “beast” is one that does “well” at a majority of them, but doesn’t need to be the best at any of them. And except for enthusiasts that seek out a single event, the average person may have no idea what they might run into. So a single truck that is capable of handling the majority of situations you are likely to encounter, might be considered a “beast”.

Years ago I bought a Land Rover. It did some things really poorly, if at all. But I’m here to tell you, in the sand, snow, mud (not extreme courses, but the stuff you run into normally) it was the most capable vehicle I’ve ever driven. I went skiiing a few times and we got dumped on overnight. While everyone else is shoveling and cussing, I brushed snow away from the door, got in, fired it up, and drove away through bumper high snow in the parking lot. I made tracks that other trucks used to get out. Driving down the mountain on snow packed roads, 4WD Toyotas spun out into the berms, and at the same pace, I kept driving, never feeling anywhere near the edge of control. I would say that car was a beast. But it wouldn’t rock climb to save your butt! It had 50 series street tires on it. It wasn’t an “off roader” by any stretch. But it excelled at what I needed it to do. Same thing driving in the sand on a beach for work. It rocked. This is where I think the CT will excel. Not in the extreme stuff.
