I was told by my dealer today that my build date will be April 12th. What is the turnaround for the truck to hit the lot after that. I’m in Texas. I ordered on 02/03/21. It says the window sticker has not yet been released for this vehicle. Check back later. Thanks y’all.

I was waiting for someone else to start an April 12th thread. My last update showed I was pushed back from February 28th.

Basically, you're currently assigned a build WEEK (starts on Mondays, they build 7 days/week) once you're 5-6 days out from your build DAY (which may also be the 12th, there's just not really a way to be sure yet based on how scheduling works) you'll be able to pull up your window sticker. The 5-6 days is just a rule of thumb, it does vary sometimes.

At the top left-center of the window sticker there will be a BLEND date which reflects the day your parts are loaded onto the line, not necessarily the build date, which will follow a day or two later.

From there, it depends on if you have a bed liner or wheel well liners that have to be installed, which has been delaying shipping. Even then, shipping times have varied widely, but I'm expecting 6 weeks, and hoping that's an overestimation.

Very good information!

My dealer called yesterday and said they have a truck that is similar to my build but it’s a PB where as I ordered the 3.5L Eco. It’s so tempting to go get that truck lol but I’m trying to be patient.

Mine is a PB, haven't seen any trucks on lots anywhere nearby that are close enough. Patience is hard!

Very much looking forward to it!

Yeah, I got the VIN quickly, but the build has now been pushed back 6 weeks from when it was supposed to be built. Fingers crossed things progress!

Nearly an exact match of what I ordered 2/12 with exception of two tone paint and I kept the wheel well liners. I have received no VIN or build date to date. Order has not been picked up to date.

I added wheel well liners and got told I needed to drop them and it would speed up the process. So I did, and got a build date a week after dropping them off the build. Then I went and purchased the wheel well liners from Ford for $170 and will install them myself when I get the truck.

Probably a very smart move.

I recently got pushed from my April 5th build week due to the latest stoppage. Disappointed to get pushed, but I would have been more surprised if it didn't happen. Current build date is April 12th.
