Love this truck! The only reason I didn't go for it was my love of the 12" screen. Otherwise, this is the perfect truck.

Did you do a module count at all @ThiccFilA?. mine has been at 920, which seems low but again doesn't have too many of the extras
Dang dude to be honest, I went to that MotorcraftService.com site and looked at it, but the list is pretty long and I don’t see anything telling me how many lines it is. I could try to figure that out if you know an easy way to find that automatically, but ain’t no way Im counting them manually lol

Wow, congratulations. It looks awesome. Is this Antimatter Blue Metallic? I just found out today my Platinum went into production yesterday, I'm happy for you and excited now that I think I get to see an actual Antimatter Blue looking this nice. Merry Christmas
This is the AntiMatter Blue indeed! Until I got my truck I didn’t realize how black it looks so much of the time, but in certain light situations when you see the blue…I’m a big fan of the color. I’m sure you will be too! I hope you get yours sooner rather than later!

You can click drag select all of them and the copy(Ctrl+c) and paste(Ctrl+v) into an excel document and then just scroll down to see how many lines pop up. Excel counts the lines for you

That makes sense. When I am back on my comptuer instead of my phone, I can try to do that.

The guy that everyone b*&%ches to at work...
3.5 Ecoboost. XL based Rattler package. Opted out of Trailer Tow Package down to just the class IV hitch. Opted out of console for center bucket seat. Bare bones with options besides that, just what it came with.
sat down to build it in early/mid August at my dealership. Ordered confirmed August 22, 2022. Got Scheduled for Production on October 12, which was scheduled to be built the week of November 14. On October 15th I got my Built email (built at Dearborn, MI), and my dealer (in Maryland) received the truck on Saturday, October 19. Picked it up on Monday. Excited to have it and share images!
I’m very curious as to how there has been next to no hits on Google or YouTube for the Rattler package. I’m not saying it’s groundbreaking; what I’m saying is it‘a a new option that Ford introduced, but there were 0 real world examples being reviewed on the Tube, or even having articles written about their production.
To this point I haven’t seen/heard anyone else taking delivery on their 2023 model year Fords. Additionally, I’ve heard from some folks who wanted to order a Rattler but it was sold out. Never showed as an option under Build and Price because it was sold out before the 23s populated.
I feel guilty saying it, but I’m very fortunate to have had such a quick process when other people ordered countless other vehicles (even other XL’s) last year and they are still waiting (I know of at least one person in that XL boat, confirmed).
I’d love to shed insight on it and have some conversation to see what other people’s thoughts are about the package and the lack of publicity/information.

That’s a good looking truck! Congrats. And that Antimatter Blue is a great choice. Hard to keep clean, but looks amazing.

First that I've heard of the Rattler option but good know'n sumth'n like that is available. We got our '21 XLT Powerboost 302a in FEB '21 after order'n it in DEC '20. Even though the Rattler looks good, & I especially like the vinyl floor instead of carpet, we really like the hybrid option & the animator blue (black). No regrets but I sure do like that Rattler option. Good choice & happy truck'n.

It's a truck, why more/all of them do not have the vinyl floors is a mystery to me. I have a Lariat Mid and I wish it had vinyl floors.

Congratulations on your new Rattler. It looks fantastic. I've been eyeing the Rattler since it was announced back in March. I was also waiting for Ford to announce when it can be ordered. I obviously missed the boat on that one. Finally, I didn't know it was a 'limited edition' with only a certain amount of builds. I guess I should have been paying closer attention to this forum. The dealers are totally clueless as to when order banks are opened, etc.
So, now I need to wait until 2024 model - unless it is discontinued by then, I have a feeling with Ford investing so much in the Lightning, the mainstream trucks will be put to the side and fewer will be manufactured. A consequence of technological advances. Oh well.

Thank you! And this is the kind of conversation I was interested in; I had also heard of it back when the package was announced- I just had extremely fortunate timing with my interest in buying a truck, and the brief window that Rattlers could be ordered.
I was already in contact with a salesman when the 2023 order banks opened, and asked him about it. He was able to build it, although the Build and Price tool on Ford's website still didn't have 2023s as an option yet, only the 2022s. I placed my order and waited to see anything new show up online about the Rattler package; and if I'm being honest, literally to this very day there is still 0 new info. Once the Build and Price tool finally showed 2023 trucks, the Rattler package was never available as an option from the start.
So I feel bad, but Ford definitely never made it easy. My timing was just very fortunate. I hope they do come back for 2024, because a week later, I still feel that the package provides a lot of value for the money it costs, with a unique look on a truck that I can still work in.

I know there are several dealers that subscribe to this forum. And I thought I have seen some Ford reps as well. Perhaps someone can explain what happened in the Rattler situation.
1) Announced in March 22.
2) Expected orders to begin Summer or Fall of 2022.
3) No other word from Ford on the Rattler since then.
4) 2023 F-150 configurator had no mention of the Rattler package.
5) Dealers were clueless on when orders would begin.

Something is definitely amiss here. I suspect this will migrate to other models as time goes on.

I like it, I think it looks good. Love the color, the rear bumper with the exhaust cut out to pretty sweet as well. Congrats on the new truck.
