    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Good luck. I ordered a F450 Platinum March 31, and probably like you, I've had a bunch of build dates. After one that said Oct 25 a month ago, I had my dealer cancel AS. Unfortunately, the system never reflected the cancellation, so they got the rep involved and cancelled in last Thursday. I'm hoping it gets schedule this week. I think they'll be scheduling for the build week of October 18.

    Thanks. They confirmed, but I question their competence, as there have been other situations that appear they're lacking in that area. Unfortunately, these things couldn't be determined until we got into this situation. I just need to mentally detach myself from expecting to get a new truck this year, and should probably just cancel my order and wait for something else to come along. This has been my first experience with Ford, and it hasn't been a good one.

    Thank you for double-checking and clarifying!

    Did your VIN and/or order number change? I recall 2wd having a different VIN sequence than 4wd.

    Knowing the target start of production being in July, I was OK with the original targeted build week of July 19. But then the dates starting slipping.. July 26, then Aug 9, then Sep 21, then Sep 9, then Oct 25, and now Nov 8. Who knows what next.

    I ordered way back in March. VIN assigned in May, and I've had a number of build weeks each month starting in July. Then Aug, then Sep, then Oct, which is when I deleted adaptive steering trying to get my truck built sooner. Of course customers are going to make changes to try and get our trucks built. Now, supposedly AS was deleted 3 weeks ago, I just got another build date in Nov. Seems pretty screwed up. If Ford didn't make us wait 8+ months, then customers probably wouldn't be making so many changes along the way. By the way, the Ford online tracker still shows my truck as having adaptive steering. Does that tracker simply just show the original order?

    2022 Bed Rug

    Though the rubber mat may offer some cushion, it's not nearly as much as what the BedRug offers. Why do you think you might not be able to use your bed extender?

    2022 Bed Rug

    I believe that they are mold and mildew resistant. It really depends on how you use your truck. I have a SnugTop camper on my old truck, and so I was constantly crawling in on my knees. I also camped in the back of it a lot. As odd as it sounds, I've always kept a rubber bed mat on top of my Bed Rug to improve durability. With both, it's comfortable crawling in and out of the back and probably better insulated when I camp in it. I carry a lot of stuff that would probably dent up a bed with just a spray-in liner. Though the BedRug isn't heavily padded on the sides, I think it's just enough. I've had drop-in liners, spray in liners, and I think they each have a place, depending on how you use it, so I won't say any of them is necessarily better. My next truck will have a spray-in liner, but I'll have that one set up differently and use it differently. One of the things I learned about liners is the friction and how things move in the bed. The drop-in liner is slippery so things slam the front of the bed when you hit the brakes or the tailgate when you accelerate. The Rhino Liner I had in another truck was basically slip proof, so nothing slid - the stuff just tipped over and rolled. Yeah, that was ugly. Sure, I should secure everything, but I don't. My current BedRug and mat combo has been a good balance of slip and grip. Things move as needed, but don't tip over.

    Order date is 3/31. AS supposedly cancelled 8/23. This was ordered from a large dealer that moves a lot of Super Duty trucks.

    The 450 Platinum I originally ordered had AS. I just got the e-mail that now says Nov 8. When I got the notification that it was previously Oct 25, I cancelled AS - or at least I asked the dealer and he said he cancelled it. However, when I click on the link in the Ford e-mail that shows details about my truck, it still shows AS is there. Did the dealer delete it, or do those details continue to show, even though it was supposedly changed?

    My situation is similar. Ordered in March. After six production dates, and VIN assigned in May, my last date was Oct 25 as well. On Aug 20, my dealer supposedly deleted AS, but my date hasn't changed and it is still Oct 25. Priority 10 at a large Super Duty dealer.

    Adaptive Steering - Is it worthwhile......

    Absolutely! For the past 16 years I've been driving a Ram with the Cummins motor. There's a lot to be said for a motor that's stood the test of time vs. the PowerStroke that gets fully redesigned or built by a different vendor every few years. That's not exactly confidence inspiring! I may not be a fan of how the Aisin transmission performs, but at least it's reliable. We won't talk about the 68RFE.

    Adaptive Steering - Is it worthwhile......

    I test drove a 450 with it and really liked it, so last March I ordered my 450 with it. The latest build date was 10/25, but I don't believe that would have happened, so I cancelled it a couple weeks ago. I still don't have a new date, so I'm not sure I made the right decision. At this point, I'm even questioning my decision to even order a 22, when a full model change is on the horizon. Heck, I'm even hoping Ram offers a better transmission in their trucks. That along with a wide-track front axle, and I'd be ordering a full model change Ram pronto... whenever that happens.

    Then how did my F450 Platinum with adaptive steering first get scheduled for July 19? Then July 26... then Aug 9... then Sep 26... then Sep 19.... then October 25? (I don't know what it is now, since I removed adaptive steering a couple weeks ago.) The announcement of the adaptive steering being a commodity issue came out way after it was initially mentioned.

    I don't need to imagine.... Ordered 3/31. I got that 10/25 date and didn't believe it for a minute. I cancelled adaptive steering a couple weeks ago, but still have no idea when I'll get the truck.
