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.
Do you also happen to know what manually allocated mean? I’m new to the ford ordering world

I know that each dealer is allocated a certain number of Raptors for the year (some not at all) based on the prior year's sales as a reward for the volume sold. I doubt they fit into the typical system monitored monthly allocation (which ebbs and flows based on Ford's system tracking). That is probably what is meant by "manually" allocated.

So if I ordered a truck and placed the deposit gave my license and all I still may not get my truck?

Doubtful. The dealer should know if they have an allocation for a Raptor. They should tell you if they do. If they do, you will get it, when Ford gets around to it.

That doesn’t give me hope. I’ll have to follow up.

With Raptors the dealer needs to be more communicative.
I agree. Granted I did just order it a few days ago. I was waiting on a ranger raptor since that order bank opened but my friends truck was scheduled before mine at the same dealer. My build sheet I signed states its a Job #2 order.

I took the 63X tailgate delete and not angry at all. As I’ve stated in my previous posts, I think my use case will benefit more from the old tailgate with integrated step.

That said, I’m interested to see how “real world scenarios” usage the new tailgate gets. Then if I decide I’m missing out, I’ll buy it and swap it out.

Congrats to all the holdouts, I’m glad the delay wasn’t that long and I hope you get scheduled quickly and aren’t impacted by other limited availability restrictions.
I am in the same position and considered just swapping out traditional tailgate for the PAT. But then I remembered last year a tailgate replacement cost me (insurance) $5,200!! I will live with the 63X. Good luck to all.

Ordered 11/7 also from Granger and got my 3rd 45 day email today…was really hoping today was going to be the day.
‘ordered mine in September and received 3 of the 45day message then I guess they cancelled to order and did not tell me. 🤷🏼‍♂️

2024 King Ranch
Saw this listing and didn’t love it. Almost too close to black.

I think I’m going to swap to Avalanche. Saw a beautiful BAP Lariat in Avalanche this morning and fell in love.
As you know my King Ranch is sitting with Chip for another week and it is Antimatter Blue. I was sold on that color after I saw the King Ranch at the Texas State Fair but now that I see this on Long McArthur's website, I think the Rapid Red looks really good. I was on the fence between the Antimatter and Rapid Red and I think they are both great colors.

I know this is a King Ranch and you are getting a Platinum but I think you can see what I'm talking about. Then again, a Rapid Red might look like that Lariat that was in all of the YouTube videos. Long story short, Avalanche is a cool color. I'm just trying to throw another one at you to help your indecision. lol

Ha, I spent hours and hours going through listings and colors and I think red would be in my top 3, too.

And, I think if I had ordered a KR (or a chrome-trimmed lariat) I would stick with AMB (or red). It is still my favorite Ford color overall. But I think it needs something a bit lighter to offset it, and after seeing the all black 701A, it just wasn’t for me.

Just happened to drive past an avalanche lariat yesterday and I loved it.

You’re a month early. It’s 4/1 today. That’s 4 weeks from now. These are scheduling notes. Meaning when this was posted ford was scheduling orders to be built for the week of 4/29-5/6.
