    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Regarding the dropping of items in the order to answer a previous question I was advised by the Ford regional rep in my area to drop the “add ons” that he felt might hold me up. I misstated what I dropped. I looked at my build and I didn’t have the tonneau I dropped the bedliner and side steps. Not sure if I had to but I did get scheduled like 2 weeks after I dropped them. Maybe it was just the bedliner. Sucks because the stupid running boards are way expensive after the fact. Gotta go aftermarket.

    Does the tracker move to “in production” before they release the window sticker? I still show “order confirmed” status.

    I feel like a nerd. Waited all this time and thought I wouldn’t chase the window sticker. Now I’m looking for it. I promise I won’t look for the rail car delivering it tho.

    What day is everyone getting their window sticker lately? Scheduled week of 1/31. Will they come this week or next week?

    Ooh that’s clearly Atlas. Looks good. I’m glad I picked it over Antimatter.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    I have a question for any dealer employees. What’s to prevent a dealer from taking my deposit and ordering my truck and then purposely tanking my xplan deal so that they can sell it for 10k more on their lot? I ordered over the summer and my xplan price is saved on my phone (it should be 62899) but the salesman was weird and told me that my xplan price would be finalized once the truck arrived. Now im starting to think that he is full of it. Truck scheduled to be built in 2 weeks and I have that feeling that they aren’t going to be legit with me. Maybe im just paranoid but I keep running into people who tell me that they got a super duty for 5k over msrp. The market hasn’t exactly cooled off with that nonsense.

    Good running boards?

    Ok so my truck should be built the week of 1/31 and I dropped the bedliner and running boards to get it built. Bedliner is going to be a choice of line x or rhino. What is everyone using for running boards? The factory ones are very expensive to add after the fact. I have always had nerf bar style tube ones. I kinda like the boards on the tremor with the flatter profile. Anyone have any they have owned that are less than 400 bucks? I like the Go Rhinos but they are 529 which seems like a bit much. Thanks.

    Ordering a super duty with xplan

    Just call dealers and ask them if they will order a truck on the x-plan. Not all dealers are participating. Yes they can charge 100 in fees plus the 275.00 for the xplan. You can insure the price you pay by signing an agreement with them. You can write anything you want on paper and have them sign it if they agree to it. That’s the easiest way to assure your future satisfaction. The only other discounts are for military and first responders. There is a 750.00 student offer but I can’t get a straight answer on whether it applies to Super Duty. It isn’t on the list of approved or prohibited vehicles.

    Hmmmm. The “paper” I have only shows msrp. But I submitted a pin when I ordered the truck so I guess I can assume that when I get the truck they will apply the x-plan price to it. The xplan price on my paper says NA.

    I ordered in July. The price on my invoice doesn’t show me my xplan price from back then. How do you hold them to the price when you ordered. Did the msrp go up? My invoice just shows me the msrp and the invoice price. I noticed that the msrp went up 200.00 when I changed my order in October to lariat ultimate. This is going to be interesting to see what price they try to charge me. I don’t trust car dealers at all. My buddy just bought a truck on xplan and his dealer charged him a 500.00 doc fee. They aren’t supposed to do that but they did. I just built my same truck with xplan now and it’s 64611. It was 63385. Wow. I’m not paying 64611.

    Upgrade from Lariat

    I changed from Lariat to Lariat Ultimate after I was already a priority 02. It was a pain in the butt to get it done. The regional rep had to get the change in and forced it back to priority 02. Sounds easy but it took me weeks to get the stupid order changed and I was told several times that Ford denied the request. If you have a vin assigned it seems to be even harder. Good luck with getting a truck before April at this point. They aren’t scheduling for another 2 weeks and it looks like they are already into Feb build weeks. Add shipping into the order and it’s 4-5 weeks after the build to get the truck. And that’s if you are not held up. I would assume that a change is going to screw up your timing.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    So my friend ordered 2 months after I did. I ordered July 20 and he ordered in September. Same truck. 350 lariat ultimate. Only he kept the bedliner and his truck is silver. I got a confirmation email and then the scheduled and rescheduled emails. He wasn’t a COVP order or whatever that is because they never sent him an email and they didn’t take a deposit or any information other than his name and license. He just got a random call that his truck was in last week. How can that be if what we read on here is true? It’s supposed to be scheduled when the parts are ready. Ford is definitely screwing these orders up. It kinda sours the experience when someone else has seemingly no problems at all and you wait like a dope for them to keep letting you down.

    So it’s always done on Thursday’s. Except when it isn’t? Seems like all of these orders are some form of priority. But since they just punted my order last night from Jan 17 to Jan 31 with no explanation I might argue that Ford scheduled on that Tuesday to placate the priority 02 people and were never going to build it on that date anyway. This whole process is awful at this point.

    Many of us were scheduled on a Tuesday last month. So with the holidays maybe they might do it at different times and dates but my email came 4:28pm ET on a Tuesday
