For those who are unaware, @rcbickle, @perfectburrito, and others have been putting together a MD/PA/DE/VA Volume Buyer's Group. Lots of great info in their thread:

Maryland Volume Buyer's Group

Any questions are best directed to that thread and the folks involved. I'll sticky this post for posterity.

Long shot, but does anyone in the area have a Black Diamond that was delivered? I have not been able to see one in person. If so possibly we could arrange a time to meet up? Having a hard time deciding between that and the OBX model, which I have had opportunity to test drive.

Mine is supposed to be delivered sometime today through next Wednesday so I'm hoping to have it soon. I'm on the eastern shore though and rarely make it back over the bridge but may be available.

Congrats! I’m also interested in your thoughts about the marine grade vinyl. I’m deciding between a BD with MGV and a Big Bend with cloth. The cloth design just looks unappealing to me. Hope you post some pics

Hi all!! My Big Bend is scheduled to be built on 11/1. Ordered her from a PA dealer and will bring her home to DE. Can’t wait for her arrival!!!

4 door Badlands Cactus Grey, ready to go wheeling. Did the Off Road Consulting at Rausch Creek Off Road Park. Kyle was awesome & learned a lot. Would love to organize an outing @ Rausch Creek Off Road Park so that I am not the only Bronco there!

Looks like the dealer did to you what they did to me, put holes into the car for the license plate. I have ordered my plate frame, but I need to hide the holes. I was thinking about getting some plugs from amazon and painting them cactus grey.

Yup, went to dealer when it came in, no holes, went to pick it, license bracket sitting dead in the middle.

Hi all, 7/14 99r here. I was hoping to buy a '22 with a white top, but we all know that's not a possibility. Instead, I am now trying to decide whether to go MIC or soft top with the hope of purchasing a white top in '23 and replacing the top I get on my '22. Prior to placing the order later this month I wanted to check and see if anyone was interested in a "cheaper" two top solution, i.e. buying my '22 top when I get the '23. If you have any interest just let me know. Thanks.

Does anyone know of a dealer with big bend 4 door to test? Deciding on whether to change from 2 door to 4 door soft top since it seems next year is the earliest Ill get my day 3 reservation. Im in Brandywine MD.

the Bronco is not in my possession! Great first day setting her up and exploring. Just need to get off the road and give her a taste of what she was born to do! That is Murphy in the picture. It is really his Bronco!

Just saw the group. I'm in Laurel getting BB 4dr, 2.3L auto, soft top, mid package in Area 51. My build date is 9/22 so hopefully I'll have before Dec. I'm going thru Kyle at Koons Silver Spring. He's been decent at communicating. I had a reservation with Apple Ford Columbia but haven't heard a peep from them. Hopefully we can get together soon.

My First Edition rolled off the truck today. I got to visit her (wanted to make sure she was real! LOL). She is off for wash and prep and I will pick her up tomorrow morning! My first impressions are WORTH THE WAIT!!! Dealership says they have delivered about 10 (all soft tops) so far. Mine is their first MIC. Right next to her was a Area 51 Outer Banks with a soft top, so I am not the only one smiling today!!

Anybody else going through Preston Ford for their Bronco?

I'm using Boulevard in Lewes. How's it been going for you with them?

I’m going Through Leonardtown and they’ve been great but too for for future stuff; I will probably use Preston for my service and other things even though Hertrich in Easton is closer since I just get a better vibe from Preston. I’ll probably head there this week to look at their demos and I’m trying to schedule a test drive. Are you getting a MY21?

Base MT in hopefully AMB after changing it from SB

Hey folks! My FE is scheduled to be built in the coming weeks (fingers and toes crossed) and will come with the factory rock rails. Since it also has the Sasquatch and I have a short wife- I will be adding the factory tube steps at the dealer. This gives this group a unique opportunity to get your hands on a brand new set! The list price for the rails is $595 but I will take reasonable offers. My plan (and hope) is that I can leave the rails at Leonardtown Ford for you to pick up or have installed. Please message me if you are interested.

Finally saw one in the wild. Badlands with optional wheels (not squatched) close to Assateague. The hood is level with the roof of the Mini Cooper. My little one was pumped when she saw it!

Yep. Soft top. Only potential delay option was tow package. Called Ford yesterday and it was silly how little they can tell you. I seemed to know way more than the rep. After a 10 minutes call she finally managed to tell me (in between yawns) that the truck was built but not shipped yet. Which is the same thing I told her as soon as she answered the call. Have to laugh to keep from crying a guess.

@Icinnes not my business but you can reach out and ask to speak with a manager who absolutely can check your order status in their WBDO (we call it webdoe like a baby deer) they can also reach out to their Ford rep too. The tow is something that could hold it up. They may have completed the build but if they don't have the tow it just sits and sits until they do have it (like the chip shortage). Lastly, they can look in their inventory to see if it actually has a shipping date and if so they can track it. Hopefully that helps. Unfortunately the sales staff does not have access to the same tools that managers do.

You may think I'm a fortunate son because I got a VIN and my 3rd Production week but now I'm worried about my dealer trying to poach my order by telling Ford that I cancelled or declined the Bronco because of the color and lack of my options when they ordered without my approval. So yesterday, I sent them an email politely stating that under no uncertain terms that my Name is on the Order and VIN so that's my Bronco and not their's.

I hope it all goes well!

Took ownership of our 4-door OBX Area 51, auto 2.3L, towing, soft top, on 7/10! Love it so far!

Anybody else using Preston/Boulevard Ford for their dealer?

Boulevard has royally screwed my order and harshed my Bronco dream.

7/14 Reservation and they placed an order 3/18 without informing me. No calls, No Emails. Just an order notice for my MT Base in Black instead of VB. None of my options.

I went to talk to them in person and everything was fixed and my order was supposedly changed to 99 because of my options Squatch, Tow, Aux Switches

Well, the 27th I wake up to my Ford email that my Black Stock Base MT was scheduled to be built the week of 7/12. Only person that I finally got to talk to was the GM and he's telling me no problem, Preston will take care of the Bronco and they'll just place another order and maybe get Ford to make it a priority.

Well, talk to Ford Bronco CS and Zone and turns out that was a big fib and my 21 Reservation/Order is filled and I would have to wait for the MY22 Reservations open and get in line behind the remaining MY21 folks.

Sorry for the vent.

Still thinking about taking the Black to either love it or sell it. There's just no effin way I'm letting Boulevard keep it.

Thanks,

Lee

Hi all! After being hyped for the return of the Bronco since last summer and trying to keep up with the updates, it just dawned on me to join the group to keep my eye on all the happenings. The issue on my end is what I'm interested in. I've had my focus set on the Sasquatch+Manual since the beginning, but have been frustrated to hear that it is delayed until MY22. I've seen a few great, informational responses in the forums that are leading me to hope I can find out more about what's going on. Is anyone in the group able to shed some light on my best course of action to start setting things into motion on this, or am I just going to be stuck waiting until the fall to take any action? Thanks!

Well now that basically everything is going to MY22, I would resign yourself to that. (Ford just announced no mod top for MY21)
RednWhite89
RednWhite89
If you didn't enter an order already before 3/19 you probably won't get a '21. Not sure if that's a hard rule, but that's the gist of what I understood.

Gotcha. I had pretty much resigned to having to go with MY22, but with each new announcement, it's making me wonder if I'd be lucky to get one by Spring/Summer of 22. 🙄 We'll see what shakes out, I guess. ThanksThanks

Hello one and all! Sorry I have been unusually quiet but here at the rcbickle homestead, it has been a busy December and January and my day job has kept me BUSY!

Excuses aside, today is Bronco-Order-Eve! I would like to encourage all members that are ordering new Broncos to post their order conversions and discuss what they finally decided. Also, make sure you give a shoutout to your dealer, especially if they have gone the extra mile and made the order experience a positive one! We have had some great dealer support (@NayNay , @StephensAutoCenter , @Granger Ford are three examples!) to date and I am sure the dealers would not mind a "thank you" from us!

@lowmpg I'm back and forth on the Pod lights, looking at Rigid ones on amazon has a lot of different types of pod light (flood, spot, diffused) and I'm not sure what the B&P ones are. What made you decide to get them?
lowmpg

@mcalpal I've had tons of lights and lightbars. Rigid makes a solid setup and more importantly, wiring through the body and into the cowl to attach lights would be horrific. The AUX wires will most likely be in the drivers foot well, so you'll need to run wiring to both sides of the truck (no thanks). Most quality Rigid pods are in the hundreds of dollars, so the price isn't absurd and if I choose to go with another light later, the wiring is done.

I decided to bow out on the Bronco (for now) for financial reasons but I had better see yous guys at Rausch! The Pajero will have gotten a little love by this Fall so it should be a fun.

I went with the four door badlands manual with the dual tops and lux package. I ordered yesterday with Bob Bell in Glen Burnie and they were great!!
