Looks like the floodgates are opening up - I just received my email - truck is scheduled for week of 29 April.

KR, 3.5EB, 5.5' bed, Star White Metallic...w/3.55 Max Tow E-lock rear axle, Tow mirrors, Wheel well liner....and did not remove the PAT.

EDIT: Order date 18 Dec 2023, Priority Code 10.
I ordered the tow mirrors also, the picture shows the tow mirror but I don't see it on the accessories list. Do you show it on your list when looking at the website? Thanks

Yeah, the floodgates opened up for sure. Somehow I got left on dry land with a 10/13 order date and the same priority code and same build as many of these scheduled orders.

I guess I am no longer a holdout - Ford is now holding out against me. It doesn't anger me, it kind of makes me sad. I have been the ultimate Ford fan boy and I guarantee you I have sold more than one truck for them. I have been a very loyal customer since my 1979 Ford Pinto my Dad handed down to me for my first car. However, but this experience maybe changing that. I don't like waiting, but I can deal with that. What I don't like is arbitrary and capricious systems that they try to claim have some reason or order behind them, but they don't.

Reason #1: Does your dealer have allocations? It's Granger, so yes.
Reason #2: Maybe Ford just isn't scheduling your configuration? Well, I see at least 3 exactly the same as mine, so no.
Reason #3: They are out of Powerboosts. BS. Almost everyone who was scheduled had a PB and everyone ordered after I did.
Reason #4: Must be the Priority Code. I am a 10. I doubt everyone who got scheduled is lower.

So like I said, everything they say is BS. They just pick who they want to build when they want to build it. If some customers have to wait 7 months, or a year , while others get it ordering this month- they really don't give a damn.
Know that I ordered a month before you did 9/18 and also have not been scheduled. I also ordered from Grainger.

Good catch...mine also doesn't spell out Tow Mirrors anywhere. I'm going to keep periodically checking to see if it updates...hopefully, a temporary glitch somewhere.

I did notice the CG graphic is not quite right either - looks like a meld between the standard mirror and tow mirror lol

That’s exactly how mine looks also, a blend of the two mirror types.

Ok, when I ordered this I got the Hybrid and kept everything that was stock. The first time I saw it in production was Feb 21 2024 then it went to what it says now. Can someone tell me why its still in production?
MY 2024 F150 Platinum Plus has been "in production" since 2/12/2024. I suppose it takes a long time to build the "Plus" part! :(

2011 F150 XLT SCAB 6.5, 2024 F150 Lariat SCREW, 6.
With anticipated scheduling surge this week, I asked my dealer to check my status because my initial Ford order acceptance email was 66 days old. I initially ordered a SCREW on 1/13/24, Lariat 501a, 5.5 bed, 3.5EB, BUP. I adjusted my order on 2/22/24 in response to PAT starting on Job 2. I changed color, upped trim to 502a, increased bed to 6.5, added Rear center step under bumper, and changed EB to PB. Dealer told me my order number and original date were unchanged.

Dealer called yesterday to inform me Ford had flagged my order and it was on hold until he corrected a data field. He was a bit sheepish because it showed he didn't do a good job of managing his orders since mine had been flagged for 28 days.

Anyway, it's all fixed. He was on line with the order bank as we talked. We deleted wheel well liners and added 7.2kw power. I received a new Ford acceptance email a few minutes after completing the call. I'm not upset as all people can err - I sure do. 4% below invoice with a $500 refundable deposit keeps me well gruntled. I don't think I've lost any time since BP are currently constrained and my dealer improved my priority by 4 points to offset - I was also waiting patiently for PAT readiness.

Lesson learned - have dealers check your status and expect the 45 day Ford emails. This is my 1st order so I was ignorant about the 45-day followups. Posts on this thread caused me to question my dealer about them. Thanks!

Was the wheel well liner removal a recommendation from them so you could get scheduled sooner?

Just wait until your 66 days becomes 160 days like mine. I can assure you, disgruntled you will be.

Wheel liners are done post production, off the factory site along with splash guards and bed options other than BUP (bed liners, covers). Doesn't impact scheduling but does extend time between production and shipment. Dealer mentioned it as does Tim Bartz on his podcast.

How long does it take to get the order acceptance email? My order is for a raptor but I’m curious. I was told my order is being processed by the ford chat person.

Raptors work different. I've known a couple of Raptor buyers and they don't get the same emails everyone else does but they get scheduled differently. They all just had to keep checking with their dealer.
