It looks like it has been built now. Showing nearly 4 weeks to ship to Texas though. They must be sending mine USPS.

Mine is being built tomm in Michigan and my dealer told me a few weeks ago it would take a solid month to get to San Antonio, TX.

I hope its just after March 1st so truck month kicks in and I can get all the new specials.

Looks like my truck is back in production from awaiting shipment. I guess the dropped it or something and they have to build another one.
Mine is doing the same. The tracker keeps saying something different everytime I check and seems to go backwards at times. My build date was January 20th and my dealer had another built on the 21st for their stock. I am sure the tracker is acting crazy since it is the weekend. It also says 16 days for delivery from the Dearborn plant to Northern West Virginia (5 hour drive). Are they that backed up on shipping them?

The dealership is closed today, Sunday. The one sheet says ETA of 2-1-2021, the other says delivered. Which one is accurate?

Mine says Est 06 days under shipped. Does that mean 6 days in transit or 6 days until it ships? It is a 5 hour drive.

My KR PB 4x4 was built 1/21. Now shows Shipped In Transit! Estimates 14 days to NW GA for 2/7. Dealer told me a few weeks ago it showed 2/2 est at the dealership. I'll ask him this week what the system shows now.

I know it’s purely an educated guess at this point, but what is a good estimated time to get shipped to the Florida area from Claycomo?

No, that happens a lot after production for some reason.

6 days transit is travel time. If by rail, it will be time to the rail yard, from there goes by truck to dealer. From what I have seen that time to the dealer is not part of the transit time estimate.

Do you not have an ETA date? That will be estimate to the dealer.

It should come to dealer via truck and no rail. The ETA date is Feb. 8th. I checked stickers and think I figured out the dealer has another truck being built the 28th and I am guessing they are holding my truck and another that was built the same day as mine and will ship all three to the dealer at one time.

Everyone (well some people) keep thinking that there will be big rebates in March - truck month. Normally, most years, I would say yes, but with demand so high for 2021’s, why would Ford offer this?? Sales could not be much better, they really cannot keep up with demand!! Just my two cents.

my truck was shipped on 1/14 and the tracker has an ETA of 2/4, which totals 21 days transit time. However, under “shipped” on the ford tracker it says 31 days and on the forum tracker 31 is listed as the transit date. If the truck was built on 1/14 and the ETA is 3 weeks later how is it possible to have 31 days of transit time?

They are all just estimates is all I can tell you. Rail yards, delivery trucks can all have delays. Mine spent 10 more days in the rail yard than it should have.

I understand it’s an estimate here, I guess what is confusing is on Fords own tracker they messed up the math, it’s either 21 or 31. I guess my question is which is more accurate, the ETA end date or transit date.
