My point is that if I am hauling anything large I am normally going to push it to the back/cab so it is supported from 2 sides by the bed then tie it down. But it looksl like you can't place any load at the back of this truck if it may come in contact with that glass roof since you can not use the roof as any support .

I don't think the end of the roof is glass but is instead a strip of stainless steel (and probably plastic parts too) that form the exit port for the vault cover. Might be designed to be very strong to support tall loads being rested against it.

Where did the cover go? Pretty cool disappearing trick. Must be under the rear window.

Everybody saw the "RC", right? So, no guarantee the noise will be the same. Or that there will be no midgate. Or no powered tailgate, etc.

It rolls up between the rear seats and the bed.

I’d bet they don’t know… but are under the constant pressure of questions from excited folks.
Possible for sure. But from others it sounds like some of them have no clue legit lol

Obviously because it waste a huge part of the screen.

I check my rear view mirror for more than backing up.

a) looking to changes lanes on a highway I look at the side mirror and the rear to see is someone is coming up fast
b) if all the car ahead of me stop quicker than normal (expected) then I glance at my rear view to see if there are cars following too close or are closing in ... gives me an option to figure out an exit if necessary.
My GMC Sierra has a rear-view mirror that is mostly useless. But as soon as you start it up, the dark murky mirror image in the rear-view mirror is replaced by a clear, bright digital camera image. I don't even think about it not being a real rear-view mirror and when other people get into to the driver seat, they don't even realize that what they are looking at is a digital image - until I turn it off and they see the poor real mirror image.
I would hope that Tesla could do the same thing.

After they dropped the tail-gate, you can see what looks like a grab-opening in the middle of the bottom of the inside of the gate. I would think that this is - maybe - to lift a back-stop up to extend the bed to 8 feet. It is a shame that no one in the video was curious enough to investigate this.

Almost looks like it's NOT possible to open that trap door while the tailgate is up. AMIWRIGHT????
If true, I presume this is a security feature. The contents under the trap door are secure if the tailgate cannot be opened.

Video rear view mirror like was well executed on the Bolt.
Great short Youtube videos of it working here: https://www.cybertruckownersclub.com/forum/threads/about-that-overhang….8354/page-3#post-147894

I'm not seeing the problem. The rear roof glass stops about 4" short of the rear of the roof. There is steel there and the rear cab window is recessed.

You never answered my question: Do you know what a load bar is? Google is your friend.

Pickups I'm familiar with cannot use one due to the construction of the bed sides. However, it looks like the Cybertruck is ideal for one, perhaps even one that locks into the track on the bed sides without using expansion pressure (which can damage traditional pickups).

I hope there is a Cybertruck specific load bar for the Cybertuck that is compatible with the tracks in the side of the bed!

It looks like the recess you see is simply to provide hand clearance so the lid to the basement in the bottom of the vault can be grabbed. It looks to me like if you wanted to, you could stand on the rear bumper and reach over the closed tailgate to open the basement lid.

I took the video… (not sure why I didn’t get credit for it but whatever), it wasn’t really noticeably loud in person somehow the phone seem to amplify it. However certainly did not seem to have that retractable ramp that they showed in the unveiling back in whenever it was 2017?
If so thanks!

Did you notice anything in particular about the rear roof glass? For example did it have lines in it?
