Hi Everyone, Maybe this is for Albert?

Is there a way that when you order, you can designate which factory can produce your truck? Might sound crazy but just curious, is all.

Hope your all doing well, so stay safe, and healthy!!

I don't believe so. I screenshot this production note from CurryBob. It quickly details which plant will handle certain build specifications....read down to "Plant Specific Content"

This doesn't list everything optionable.

I’m pretty certain there is no way to select your desired plant. Especially with how it seems they are all hands on deck trying to get production up to speed.

A few particular options will dictate which plant your truck will be built at. For instance, Guard Green is only available at the Claycomo plant, and Power Retractable Running Boards are only available in Dearborn (at least for the 2021 model year).

It is speculated that higher trim trucks get built out of Dearborn, however, I got a Lariat 502A with nearly every option box checked slated to be built out of Claycomo. I take this as a good sign they are trying get orders picked up as fast as possible.

The two above are exactly right.

Yep KR 600A is the highest trim that can be built in KC. But I assume that XL/XLT can still be built in Dearborn if the color permits and you dont get HDPP or 8' bed. Otherwise I don't see how Dearborn can stay full! The workhorse trims make up way more volume than upper trims...
