    Bad News From My Dealer

    You can change an order that is priority 02, it just has to be changed to 10 first. I had a Lariat at 02 and upgraded to a Platinum. Dealership contacted the Ford rep, had the priority changed to 10, made the changes, then changed priority back to 02. It can be done, they just need to contact Ford to make it happen. EDIT: ice beat me by a few seconds.

    2022 F350 Lariat Crew Cab

    Any updates? I changed the order to a Carbonized Gray Platinum a couple weeks ago. Should be priority 2, but I know that doesn't mean much if they can't get the parts. Sales Code: F53358 Order Code: 5467 Order Date: 9/3/21 Thanks for your help!

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    I'm not telling you they can only build a couple at all (I never implied that). I'm telling you that if Ford is shutting the plant down for 3 weeks, they've got a damn good reason. Think about this. Say they only have enough parts coming in to build 1/3 of their capacity. They know they are going to have to shut the plant down for some maintenance/retooling/whatever for 3 weeks. Doesn't it make more sense to shut down when they are only at 1/3 (or even 1/2 or 2/3) capacity then when they are at full capacity in, say, June/July 2022? If you can only build 1/2 capacity and you shut down for 3 weeks, 3 weeks after that, you are caught back up. If you are running at full capacity and you shut down for 3 weeks, you can NEVER recover from that. And seriously, right now, do you think Ford is going to shut down if they don't have to or it doesn't help them in the future? Oh, and guess what...I've got a '22 on order as well, and I understand the dilemma. I don't like it, but it is what it is. Just think things through and give them the benefit of the doubt before you bitch about it. And hey, not everyone can be as brilliant as me, but I give you kudos for aspiring to! 🤣

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Could you share your inventory specifics please? Basically, you're saying you know better than Ford about what trucks can be built efficiently in order to clear the backlog. What does Ford have to win by stopping production for 3 weeks when they are able to produce trucks? You're missing another important point...sure, maybe they can build trucks, but if they can only build on one shift or something, it's better just to stop the plant, do some work (likely for the '23 SD), clean some things up, and get it ready to roll full-time. I don't think you really understand how this works.

    I'm sure the shutdowns have absolutely nothing to do with parts availability. I mean, it makes perfect sense for Ford to just shutdown for 3 weeks when they have lots of trucks to build and ample supply of parts coming in. 🙄

    letting cruise control manage speed

    Weird, that's not how my '17 works as it activates the brakes first. Hopefully what you say is the way my new '22 will work. Whatever the truck can handle, the AC can handle.

    Yeah, hard to argue with that.

    iPhone user here. I can't stand the Google UI. And, the rest of my family uses iPhone, so it makes it easier just to keep it the same all around.

    Agree 100%! I loved my Windows Phone!

    letting cruise control manage speed

    I would prefer it use the exhaust brake more and the brakes less when going down hills. Other than that, I love it (I have the adaptive cruise).

    Ford moves to end chip shortage

    And I need the used Super Duty prices to stay high until my new truck comes in! 😄

    Standard vs. Quad Beam LED Headlights

    Yeah the biggest things I missed out on are the fender flares and two tone paint. Not to mention I had to get the painted bumpers. I was gonna go with the KR, but don’t like the color of the seats and brown interior. So, Plati it is!

    Mazda CX-50 Revealed

    Hey, look at me! I'm a Subaru with a Mazda logo! Doesn't look too bad, actually. The whole dash area, especially the screen, needs some help though.
