What pisses me off is I ordered before the price increase but it’s looking like if your window sticker didn’t generate before the price increase you are subject to it.
This is what I'm worried about with max tow as well. I tried as hard as I could to get a committed price so that when the truck shows up I don't have to make any hard decisions, as I will be in no position to negotiate and will not walk away being that filled with adrenaline. Plus they can make more money if I walk.

Neither dealer I have an order with would quote me the final price as "it has not been invoiced yet". But I have my build & price PDF saved from the x-plan site, and it shows the original price for max tow.

All you have to do, as per my previous post, is bring this up to the dealer and they'll get Ford to honor a published price - which I believe legally they have to, and it won't cost your dealer a dime of their profit to assist you. Yes, they could (maybe) make more off your truck by selling it elsewhere, but most dealers have no interest in pissing off clients. They do care about the relationship and next-sale from you.

Keep in mind that once your truck was officially ordered, your 'order sheet' carries that true order placement date with the order thoughout the whole process - so it's easy to see/verify/lookup.

So consensus appears to be once window sticker shows up, truck is produced 6-7 days later, right?

About a week yes, but the production date is on the window sticker itself (see the last 6 digits of the long number just over "Blend" at the top) so once you have the window sticker you don't really have to wonder too much anymore! Mine says 1-15 (Friday!) so I am very excited to see the tracker update after that.
