  1. Clearly you didn't experience many supply issues on your projects. Having also managed manufacturing projects with occasional supply chain issues, I can definitely relate to the issues currently being experienced. It's a new world out there and I'm sure glad I'm retired, as daily supply chain issues with 37 vendors is a nightmare for any project manager. I waited 8 + months for my truck and in the current climate I have no complaints, as my dealer kept me fully informed.

    Ordered 2022 F250 Bumped to 2023 F250

    I suggest you may want to read previous posts to get an understanding of dealer allocations with respect to "Retail" orders. Dealers receive supplemental allocations for verified retail orders. If a truck isn't getting built, it is due to commodity restraints, plant capacity or dealer assigned priority codes.

    My WS was published 9 days before it's "Scheduled to Day" build date. It was available 1 day after the Ford tracker showed it as "In Production"

    Hard not to consider, right?

    Not even close.

    It comes standard on the F-450 KR and that wasn't one of the restraints my dealer mentioned, prior to mine being scheduled mid-March.

    No CD player with 2022 Super Duty :(

    Had a CD player in the 2016 F-350, but DW's 2019 Escape doesn't have one either. About 15 yrs ago, I uploaded all my CD's and 33/45's onto a 1TB external drive. I can use the external drive, load some onto a memory stick, or DW's old ipod. All work fine in the truck. We also use Spotify with DW's phone.

    Welcome to the forum. May I suggest taking the time to read many of the threads to gain an understanding of the scheduling issues. We purchase from the dealers and they dictate to Ford the order that the trucks should be built, using Priority Codes. Provided your dealer manages their USOB efficiently, discounting commodity restraints, they will be built based on the dealer assigned priority. Yes, the dealer should normally manage it based on order date. Unfortunately, not all dealers manage the USOB effectively, which is a dealer problem, not Ford. However, retail orders, which get supplemental allocations are impacted by the daily changing commodity restraints. If Ford went by order date alone, the factory would have more down time than production time. Using my truck as an example, many weeks it couldn't get built due to a lack of wheels and dually bed. So, if my truck was next, should they shut the factory until they received a shipment of wheels? As with every major purchase these days patience is required. In my case, even ordering from a large dealer still required a wait of over 8 months.

    That's BS. If the Sales Manager refuses to meet with you, go to the GM and then the owner. Make them do their job and provide customer service. Personally, I wouldn't have left the dealer until my questions were answered. If they are this bad at present, unless you have a signed contract, they probably won't be any better in the Business Office.

    If you ordered 27th Aug 2021, and are still at priority 10, I would be asking your dealer why. I ordered 31st August and my dealer contacted Ford in early December to have me moved to Priority 2. You have tens of thousands of orders, newer than yours, where dealers have already contacted Ford and had the Priority moved to 2. Provided the commodity restraints are equal those newer orders will be built before yours, if you are still at 10. What information is your dealer getting from their Regional Ford Manager, as again, I was updated when they were contacted and the information they provided turned out to be reasonably accurate. I agree, the dealer shouldn't know any more than you do, as the dealer should keep you informed of any progress.

    Ford uses automated and generic emails, whereas you dealer can provide specifics. Throughout the 8+ months I waited, I never received a single email from Ford, as I purchased from my dealer, not Ford. Since my dealer provided regular updates, I didn't require, or want the generic stuff from Ford.

    May I suggest contacting your dealer. They have all the information available in the VVR, make them provide you with customer service.

    Haha! that's one of the reasons I patiently waited the 8+ months, hoping for the PCO, which sadly never arrived. Knowing my luck, I'll probably get one next week.
  13. Don't often purchase additional warranties, so definitely wasn't interested at time of purchase. Since it has bumper to bumper for 3-yrs, why give them money 3-yrs ahead of the warranty being required. Once I have owned the truck for almost 3-yrs, I'll decide on the pros/cons of extending the warranty. By then I will know how the truck is performing.

    You bet. Can't wait to hitch up the Redwood and hit the road. Unfortunately, it won't be this summer. Might hit wine country in September if they have any space.

    Dog/stink accessory specific question

    We have a GSD & Lab. I cover the rear seat with a plastic canvas cover that is washable. The floor has all-weather floor mats and then I fill in the gap between the front & rear seats with Styrofoam, which I constructed. Purchased sheets of Styrofoam and cut them into lengths wide enough to fit between the seats. Behind each of the front seats I created 2 lower blocks by gluing sheets together (about 12" high) I wrapped these in plastic. For the top, I create a single piece to fill the gap between the seats, aide to side across the vehicle and at the height of the rear seat. This I covered in plastic and then wrapped in Naugahyde. Not perfect, but it saves most of the carpet and gives the dogs lots more space.
