REAL men that use REAL work trucks can just build a new tire from chewing gum and the White Castle wrappers collecting under the seat
REAL men make their own CT. For the rest that pay $80K for a truck, they better get it the way they want.

The trouble with these set ups in a cyber truck, is that around town driving you may experience a 15% reduction in range, whereas at highway speeds, you may experience a 30% reduction in range.
That's why I said I want the swing arm to be removable leaving a nice clean bumper when I don't have a need to carry the spare.

not gonna lie, that bodywork looks pretty f’n dead on!

guarantee whoever built this intends to put a Cummins diesel to roll coal
I would not be surprised at all if that is the plan but it would be much cooler with a mini raptor in the bed:

Edit: the dude has a few YouTube post on building it:

If the rear window opens and you want to heat/cool the vault then hopefully the cover can be stopped in an intermediate position (like almost fully closed) to promote air flow.

With all the coal rolling I keep seeing I’m getting tempted to put a large Tesla coil in the back that is coordinated with the juice pedal. So when someone rolls coal I can race past rolling bolts of lightning.

kinda funny the other day i was driving with my GF when the diesel truck in front of me shifted gears and for a few seconds black smoke billowed from it.. no he wasn't rolling coal it just happens to diesels sometimes..

i looked at my GF and said.. holy crap we got NO smell from that.. the hepa filters in the new model y's work wonderfully.. . we then realized we had driven through several constructions zones and didn't smell ANYTHING

If the tailgate is powered, we could have fun with hiding an obscene tableau behind it, and drop it in an opportune moment... (peek-a-boo!)

it's f'ing unbelievable

or a I unknowingly driving over a million nails/screws a day and chance just catches up with me?
There’s always a chance you’ll run over a nail on your daily commute but the chances of running over two is very remote. So just run over one in your garage on the way out each morning. Follow me for other life hacks.

For all the talk about wanting airless tires, I see another airless technology that is being developed. This one is mostly for extraterrestrial applications so far at the size needed automobiles. But they seem to be very close to available for bicycle tires or smaller.

That gives me an idea... What if you attach a screen as large as the tailgate to the tailgate and stream the view of the front camera on it. Essentially letting the vehicle behind you see what you the driver can see. Gives them a bit of a heads up as to what is coming. Although, some might say that they didn't see my vehicle at all because all they saw was the vehicle in front of me.

If someone was tailgating me, I would have AI mix the video capture in front of me mixed with this and display in the back:

I love how the tire is all, "Wait for me! Wait for me!"

And the air that vehicle gets!! I've seen a small SUV go off the side of the freeway and get air like that once in my life. It was like watching a cartoon. My brain couldn't comprehend it as reality.

Hope everyone was OK.

Now... if that was what the AI projected, I bet the vehicle behind me would be pretty scared or at least distracted.
