    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    I can only imagine, so close and yet nothing you can do about it but just anxiously wait for the call. Glad you’re over it now.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Is it as OP stated a problem of finding drivers for the last leg of the trip to the dealer? I understand a truck waiting a month near the factory for a microchip, but waiting a month after it has been dropped of the train, i just did not think something like could happen.

    Bad News From My Dealer

    100% the right decision given all of the info on constrains that are still there in 2022 and causing delays. Good luck!

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Let me get this straight. Your truck is sitting somewhere an hour away from your dealer for almost a month now? I’ve see stories of shipping delays on this forum, but this…
  5. Congrats on the build date! I wondered why your particular thread has so many views in comparison to others, i looked in for that very reason! 🙂

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    @ice-capades Ice, can you please decipher the last note about Superduty Tremor package, what exactly do this mean for us, retail order customers? “Tremor Exterior Appearance (17Y) regional controls have been lifted. There are no longer any Super Duty regional controls for the new wholesale”

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Very well said. I echo your sentiment. There’s a lot of chatter on Ford announcing transition to retail order market while not truly being ready for the change, still operating like it’s 2019. All while COVID related supply chains disruptions and unprecedented order bank don’t make things easier for them to carry out that transition right now.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Ice, there is a dealer, one of the big ones in retail order market (2,000 plus retail orders) who recently came out and said that this this entire price protection claim submission to Ford scheme is not practical. It requires a dedicated team of dealership resources to generate and then monitor all these claims and more often then not they have seen many of these price protection claims rejected. One can see and understand this dealer’s point of view, imagine having to file 2000+ price protection claims. The intriguing part is, if Ford is saying that “automatic” price protection should apply to retail orders placed prior to price increases, would it not then make sense that Ford “automatically” adjust these customer invoices, thus removing the burden from the dealers accounting department? Just food for thought about these “automatic” price locks. In theory the price protection makes sense, but in practicality filling all of the price protection claims…i can see the dealers side of it, not wanting to go through with it.

    Tired of being lied to

    There seems to be two different type of people on the forum, those who constantly complain and find any reason to either blame Ford or their dealer for what’s going on right now with all of the scheduling or production delays. Ford is lying to them, the dealer is lying them, both are lying to them. The second type is someone like me. i am waiting to be scheduled for almost 5 months. I understand the situation is difficult right now and life is not always fair with different regions, different dealer allocations, different unscheduled order bank numbers at individual dealer, commodity constrains, huge unprecedented overall superduty order bank, part shortages and supply chain delays. Etc, etc, etc. i’m not blaming either Ford or my dealer, i simply follow weekly release notes, try to drop the commodity constrains that might delay me and continue to wait my turn. Sooner or later i will get scheduled like everyone else does eventually, patience is virtue. There are literally thousands of orders sitting at 02 priority right now waiting for one commodity or another to clear. My dealer alone has over a hundred SD orders that are at 02. Now multiply that by all the dealerships and retail orders in the country. See the problem for what it really is. So no, nobody is lying to you. And it is not the end of the world if your husband doesn’t get his birthday present truck in time for his birthday. He’ll be happy when he gets it during these Covid years.
  10. Haha, exactly, two weeks what. I love how people comment without any thought as to usefulness of their content. I have not seen or heard any new information which said that either the 5th wheel prep or any if the 3 tonneau covers will become available anytime soon. I personally dropped both the 5th wheel prep and the retractable tonneau cover and went from 02 back to priority 10 because of this move. It’s a gamble, i’m willing to take my chances at lower priority vs waiting for these commodity restraints to clear.

    2022 150 Build Your Own

    I find it hard to believe that such an important digital customer experience function for number one selling vehicle in America is a spare time activity by Ford software developers. There have be other reasons we are not previewed to.

    2022 150 Build Your Own

    Some of us on F150 forum are astounded that Ford hasn’t done that given it’s already Jan of 2022. Has this ever happened before where Ford would be in the next MY production and still have B&P for the prior year model?

    Powered Running Boards

    Seems like the answer is no, unless you somehow release the boards and then disable boards electronics in the release state. But as you stated, if unplugging the fuse works , whats wrong with that approach, Is the wrench symbol that intimidating? 🙂
