I got bumped to July 19 too. Just wondering who else is on the same boat.
Mine was a 6/14 KC build but the dealer says it is now the week of 7/5. It won’t surprise me if it moves again.

Hey Guys,
I’m snooping around in your club 😀 I belong in the 6/21 club. I will say our club is very limited as well so hopefully that means Ford only
Scheduled what they know they can build from start to finish with the chips they have saved up. My window sticker date refreshes since a week as well and my eyes go right to that blend date. So far it’s holding strong. Good luck to everyone!
We’d be glad to have you on the 6/21 build week thread come on over!!

What did you order? This is unacceptable, you ordered it in Feb and it is still not built. On the flip side, it's not sitting in a field with mine. Pretty sure I would be at the end of my patience and would be demanding answers as to why my order is behind so many others that ordered much later.
Order submitted on 2/27.

I made the "egregious" error of ordering some of the options that Ford offers which include:

1. Max trailer tow
2, Bed liner
3. Wheel well liners

It's a shame that I had no idea that opting for these items would send my order into another dimension.

In the meanwhile I secured a 95% identical truck which my dealer had coincidentally ordered and it is going to arrive within days.

I submitted my order on 3/2 and finally have a blend date of 6/15. I didn't get the window sticker until 5/31, but the sticker updated on 6/7 and still shows a blend date of 6/15 with a 1389 code out of Deerborn.

Fingers crossed.

I too am kicking myself over bed liner, wheel well lines, and tonneau cover, but I swear some people seem to have it shipped out immediately regardless! Here's to hoping.

For my 6/14’ers hoping for a quick ship and delivery, I just saw a post from the 5/24 thread where a guy was able to login to his Ford Pass app and see that his truck was only 25 miles away due to someone “activating the screen.” I don’t know what that means, but it’s another Avenue for trying to track your truck that we can all obsess over.

Once the truck is built you can add it to your FordPass account. The problem is it won't go active and allow you to use it until someone physically touches the screen in the truck to activate it on the trucks end. Evidently a truckdriver or someone that was in the truck activated it for him so he can now use the App to track the physical location of the truck.

Question for all of you. I called my dealer who mentioned their site still shows a 6/7 build week in Dearborn with a 6/9 build date. That has now come and passed and last I knew, the Dearborn plant was shut down this week. Additionally, my window sticker shows a blend date of 6/18. Thoughts?

The plant was shut down for your original date, sounds like your build was pushed to 6/18, still not bad.

From all the reading I've done, it seems most who are stuck have been from a roughly 5-6 week production span of mid to late march to the end of April. So that would mean most have only been there at worst for about 2 months as of the end of this week, and on the shorter end about one month. I don't see them letting these sit for anywhere past the second week of July, I know the 10/31 dates have been popping up, but we've already seen trucks with those dates ship, so I think that has very little bearing on your actual ETA. If they're able to get them all out in that timeframe (And I know it's a big if), it'll be an average of about 3 months probably. Obviously a while, but not the ~6 months I've seen some people quoting.

I could be wrong and there definitely could be some from earlier than that, but the vast majority of what I'm seeing people complain about is that roughly 5-6 week span where stuff was produced that sat, and they do seem to be starting to go through them. I know many ordered in November-February, but I think their actual blend/production dates were in that March-April timeframe. I'm guessing most of January and February was still heavily weighted to stock orders to get stuff out on the lots.

Now what we need is one of those live web cams showing the holding lots for these so we can see when people are going out there to work on them and watch how many/how often trucks are getting taken out. We could quickly get an average of how many trucks ship per day and get a rough idea of how long it'll take them to churn through them. And it would just be fun to watch...
As far as I can tell, Dearborn stored incomplete trucks en masse 3/15-4/30 (and maybe some 5/1 builds, but I also saw many of those ship immediately without issue). The earliest trucks from that production window have been there for almost 3 months already. My truck was produced 3/17 and has sat in some lot since then. That was 12 weeks ago yesterday. Coming up on the official 3-month mark next week. It would be nice to get any information on how they're completing these trucks since they seem to be doing it in random order. I hope you're right about the second week of July, but there's been no indication one way or the other.

Ford should send us postcards with a photo of the lot we're in and a "Your Truck is Here" arrow. At least I would get a chuckle out of that.

Nice! Hopefully your truck sneaks through all this production shortage mess!
I hope so. This will be my 2nd 2021 F-150. I bought the first one off the lot in Jan. and its had problems with it since around 2,500 miles. Dealer couldn’t figure it out so they told me they would order me another truck and gave me a hell of a deal taking this one back in. I ordered everything I wanted on the new one and went with a different color as well. Looking forward to getting the new one!

Wow, sorry to hear that. Now.... for the all important question! What color?
