Called my dealership and tried to cancel my order. This made the GM step in to find out what is going on. Needless to say. Ford told my dealership that the hard tonneau cover was delaying me getting a Vin number and getting my truck.

The GM thought it was very interesting because there is no constraint on hard folding tonneau covers. So if you have that and you have been waiting a long time you may want to get it taken off your order. I was told I’ll probably get them then in the next couple days now.

Oh one more thing the wheel well liner is also stopping orders from going through.

I just talk to the trucking company my truck was dropped off at from railway in Houston on January 7th and is waiting to be brought to dealer. They said it would likely go to dealer tomorrow. This is a slow painful process!

Yes. The order was never picked up. It was being held up by this one cover. it was removed and resubmitted. We expect a VIN soon. Will update when I do.
Would have been nice to have know this at the beginning wouldn't it! Another reason I don't let Ford do my bed covers and spray-in liners. I did get the wheel well liners.

On Order: 2021 F150 Limited
Occupation
Retired
Jumping for joy: Today 12 Jan, 2021, I finally, recieved a call from dealership (I'll have to call them back ref: VIN#), but they said my build week is scheduled for 1 week of Feb - with an esimate delivery of 1st or 2nd week of March.

Historical Ordering Background:

1st week of Nov, 2020: Orginally ordered 1st week of Nov. Dealership turned out - assholes & I canc..
20 Nov, 2020 Placed 2nd order another dealership
22 Nov - Ford Ordering System - showed truck as a clean build
12 Jan, 2021: Notified by dealership the truck build will take place on 1 week of Feb
1st/2nd Week of Mar: (EDD): Estimate Delivery Date: 1 or 2nd week of Mar, 2021 (Spring Yeah)!
===================================================================================================
Base Truck Build: 2021 F150
Base Option: 4x4
Additional Options:
1. Smoked Quartz Metallic Clearcoat (Love this color)
2. Spray in Bedliner ( I also will lay in the bed a rubberized bed mat ) - it's a me thing.
3. 3.5L Powerboost Engine
4. Full Recline Seats
5. Work Surface
5. Liner-Tray Style Mat's that also comes with the Carpet Mat's (carpet mat's are standard).

Bottom Line: Looks like the full recline seats (suppply chain) is corrected. Also read today (I was researching the full recline seat) that is was not that long ago that Ford actually got their patent for their seat.

I just checked in with my salesman. I put in my order on 12/17, and he tells me that my truck is in production but we don’t have a VIN yet. Does that make sense or is he trying to make me feel better about not having a VIN?

That is actually impossible, somebody is lying or just doesn't know.

That’s what I thought. Thanks for the input. He strikes me as a genuine guy, so I’ll chalk it up to just not knowing. Don’t think he’s a liar. The wait continues!
