Went to go add Tow Mirrors to my order today and I noticed that what I THOUGHT I had got a deal on well ford took back! When I ordered my retractable tonneau cover it was $995 ok affordable so I added it as an option. .today when I went to go add tow mirrors on my rig I see them raised the price right away. Thought that by locking it for the $995 they couldn't take that away?!? Dealerships feel free to chime in

Yikes! That blows. They should be honoring your original order and price. I could totally see them changing it if you decided to change your order (add stuff) but it shouldn’t automatically increase on the original order. Who knows

I'm just curious, can any Reps or Ford Corp drop a line in here and let me know...

I would think at TIME when you PLACE an order whatever options at that time would stay priced at the DAY you ordered...

or was it a MISTAKE on your end and you realized that WAIT... we undervalued that tonneau cover... anybody without a window sticker or unscheduled build date we better adjust and add $700 to customer window sticker.

LOYAL FORD guy here.... Just purchased a NEW leftover $72k 2019 Raptor less then 2 months ago for my Rental till my perfect 2021 I ordered arrives.

I'd just like an answer.....

I saw that on some 2015 orders that took so long to get delivered like this year. I order the extended range fuel tank for something like $165.

Mean while, that option goes up in price to something like $360, well mine never changed neither did the other builds.

A couple of these guys change there order for some minor option and then bang. Their extended fuel tank cost went up too.

They weren't too happy about that either.

I think this exactly what happens. If your order goes in at the lower price, and you never change the order after that point, you are probably safe. But as soon as you ask for a change I think everything resets to the new pricing.

When I ordered my 2021 KR 600A, the fixed chrome running boards with the 6" extension to go all the way back to the rear wheel well only cost $225. Sometime in the last couple of weeks they repriced that option to $1005. In that same time frame I added the max recline seats to my order, and asked them to see if they could add the skid plates as a stand alone option without the FX4 package (turns out they can only do that for Fleet Orders). One of these two requests happened after the price change, so my order now showed that option as $1005. I canceled that option, as I'm not a fan of chrome anyway, and a 6" extension isn't worth $1005.

A little disappointed, but glad I was reading about this on here and knew to ask, because I would not have been happy forking over $780 more than I expected at delivery without the choice to decline the option at that point.

I'm still digging with Ford... the Hotline wants me to use the dealership which makes no sence... they only TAKE order don't price it...
Looking to see if there's an updated price list at dealership as the one we have posted here

96J lists as $995 for retractable tonneau cover
