Waiting for a vin. Hopefully I will have a vin in May. I have no idea how long it will take after I get a vin to get a production date due to the chip shortage.

Late May sounds about right.

I placed my order on March 20th.
Processed on March 23rd.
Got my VIN last week.
Expect to see my truck sometime in July-August.

That’s great. Which truck did you order? Also if you have a lease that’s ending, check the blue book value, the used truck prices are very high.

I ordered an Antimatter Blue Regular Cab Short Bed XLT 4X4 5.0 with every option available except power rear window power tailgate block heater and Active Prep although I did get Asist.

I had to give up a lot of options that aren't available in a Regular Cab. Guess there's just not enough room to cram all that stuff in a 122" wheelbase.

But this truck will be chocked full of chips anyway so I'm in for a long, long wait.

It really depends on your priority code and dealer allocation, I ordered mine on March 15 and had my Vin about a week later. Also be specific about your priority code you want the lowest as possible I think 10 is the lowest the dealer can put. This will give you the highest priority. Of course this doesn't help any with chip constrants.

call your salesman and see about getting it changed up to a 10
11-19 are what the dealers can assign them to but at this point it does not matter with the shortages, if you have a stock truck that does not need the chip set it will be built before the retail orders that need it...
