I’ve got a F150 XL RCSB 5.0 w/spray in line, received my schedule notice…
Yeah, keep reading on in this thread. You will come to see that I realized that their scheduling notes are complete and total BS.

The Lariat "scales" use sensors with a little linkage at each corner that measures the change in height (very similar to what i have on my RAM Rebel with the Air Suspension). The CCD trucks have that "sensor" built into the shock.

On a side note (because I feel like sharing :) ).. on the RAM Air suspension, you can replace the "linkage" with an adjustable one and adjust the static ride height and level for each setting just be shortening or lengthening the linkages (and tricking the sensor). The same method could probably be used for when people raise or lower the non-CCD F150s with scales. Instead of getting it recalibrated at the dealer, just adjust the linkages.
Interesting. I always assumed that the CCD shocks were needed for the onboard scales. I have a 2022 Platinum that does not have the scales and I always assumed that was because I have FX4.

I ordered my Lariat 502A, 3.5EB, BAP, BUP, and spray on bed liner on Oct 9. Still not scheduled yet. I’m getting pretty frustrated.
I'm in the same boat. I ordered 6 Nov 2023, and no word. I ordered the Platinum 702A, spray in bedliner, wheel well liners and retractable tonneau. Maybe soon after you.

I’m really hoping to get scheduled this week. It’s very frustrating to see people who ordered months after me and got scheduled very quickly and I’ve been waiting 6 months and still not scheduled. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to when we get scheduled. You could easily be scheduled before me even tho you ordered after.

I really doubt it. I think my major setback is wanting the PAT. I have not seen anyone on this site that has shown their F150 with one. Until I see a truck with one, then I will be more optimistic I will get scheduled.

They started scheduling PATs about a month ago. In fact the first week of PAT production I believe is next week. That is why you haven't seen anyone with one, they haven't built any yet. However, many trucks with PAT have been scheduled from mid-April now through the end of May. The depressing thing is that when they dropped the 63x it only seemed like a 4-5 week gap from scheduling to build date. Now it is growing to 6-7 weeks, if you are lucky enough to get scheduled this week, it would be the last week of May or the first week of June for a build week. That likely means an early July delivery date.

I’m getting the PAT also, so you never know. Hopefully we both get scheduled this week.

The other negative about potential July delivery dates, we have heard many anecdotal tales from folks who have been told by their dealers that the huge swath of Job 1 QC hold trucks are likely going to be released in July. Right now, deliveries are pretty fast, because all of these trucks are not in the pipeline yet. Getting delayed until the same time as these QC Job 1 trucks will be a logistical nightmare.
