We have to be very careful with terms. Dealer allotment is how many build slots each dealer gets per week. As I said earlier there are 3000 dealers so either Ford is using the REGULAR allotment system or they aren't. It cannot be both.I asked this question of a dealer and they said changing dealers would not affect your place in line nor would dealer allotment affect your place in line.
If you are at dealer A with 500 reservations and I am at dealer B with 5 reservations, I may get mine scheduled to build way before you do simply because you are in a longer line! Until one of you steps up and provides factory info that says Ford handles the lightning different than every other reservation roll out. I'll stick to what I learned painfully with my Bronco order.
