Today, recieved updated status from both the dealership and the Ford tracker. My truck is officially built - including spray in liner. Now its in the dark awaiting shipment hole. My deliverly date slipped from 20 March - to 27 March. I'm officially a member of Dang I can't get a Break Club"

Rust-today I visitied my dealership & had the discussion about rust & batteries. I showed my General Sales Manager (happens to be my salesman) the forum collection (pictures) of various rust on axles etc.. He gave me the response that if it came from Ford - there is nothing they can do about it. So, keeping my cool (coz I was pissed), I showed more pictures & he agreed it was excessive. I'll wait & see @ time of delivery with the service manager.

Batteries - he said (from his point of view), it seem the dealerships were not doing their best job of PDI. He explained to me his service department places batteries on a charge & runs a battery test & then prints it out. You can bet I'll remember the conversation and ask to see printout. Haha, still taking my Foxwell Analyer and runnung a test myself.

Mine was ordered 18 sept, first scheduled 3 Feb then kicked to 17 march. Yesterday I read a reliable source say there are rumors of a week shutdown this month. I'm going to need therapy if my king ranch is delayed again.

Dropped by the dealer yesterday and looks like my expected build week changed from 3/15 to 3/21. I was also able to use my $2000 PCO on my order.

I'm also worried about plant shutdown rumors that seem to be aimed at our production week... I just try not to think about it :LOL:

Too cool! How did you manage to score a PCO? Did you email everyone at Ford, did click on every link on Dealer/Ford website, or what?

Window sticker popped up this morning w/ blend date of 3/15, hoping this sticks barring any shutdown next week.
I have a window sticker code when I put my vin in the tracker but I’ve yet to get the actual window sticker yet. I’m on the west coast so maybe it’s different? I was told my build date was 15 March by my dealer.

My sticker showed up this morning as well with a blend date of 3/15. So far, so good.

I'm also on the west coast for the record. Of course, my dealer told me 3/19... I have no idea where they got that number from, but perhaps they're trying to complete a perfect run of being wrong about everything.

Hahaha so far my dealer has been great with me so far. I’ve only been pushed back once due to the winter storms.
