As always, thanks for the info Nathan.
To clarify, and maybe ease some anxious buyers here,
'Early trends' doesn't necessarily translate into 'limited availability' IF the suppliers can keep up with the demand. Let's hope they can keep up!
I'd be fine forgoing the Squatch package on my Base if...
I take it like this:
Starting March 29 they build 500 units...... take their time, do lots of QA, have a bunch of meetings to discuss, yada yada.
Then starting in May they'll be near full capacity.... maybe 500 units a day.
We'll know for sure, soon.
Take a look at their 'about-us' page to see their bumper manufacture process.
Laser cut from 4x8 sheets, press brake to bend, hand welded, finished, sandblasted, primed and powder coated.
In your first link, it states the incorrect arms were already assembled in the 'Front Suspension Module' .

As of 2/22 there were about 90 pre-9/19 orders. Definitely expect that number to go up by the 3/19 deadline! If we figure the average dealer allocation of 30% ..... that's 27 Broncos for Chapman.
That 30% figure from Ford was likely = (#expected to be built in 2021)/(#reservations by 9/19...
It was just an experiment to see if the smaller stock tires could look acceptable by reducing the huge wheelwell gap.
It didn't work.
The fender wheel opening arches are just too big of a radius..... they were designed around a tall tire.
If first gen style fenders were put on (Heritage...
Yup, order is in, just gotta wait now.
Wonder what kind of delivery estimate we'll get? Will it be a month, or just what quarter?
Late Aug res 2.7 BaseSquatch..... I'm expecting by Spring 22. Making 2021 is a long shot, but still a chance. The 'Chapman flockers' are bumping me at least 25...

The headliner is on page 3.

Thanks. That removable 90% panel sure would be nice compared to the original 30% hatch we've seen earlier! I haven't paid a lot of attention to the mod top until now.... time to reconsider the MIC vs modular.
I get it.
Orders not converted by March 19 would have been rolled into the MY22 ordering in the summer.
But now that Ford apparently changed their own rules....
It's possible those who ordered by March 19, made the MY21 cut, and even had their builds scheduled, could get bumped into MY22 by a...
Congrats! Goes to show what great service and pricing can do for a dealership!
Better keep it a secret or other dealers may catch on.
What is the scale of 'regional' and 'our zone'..... a portion of Pa or a quadrant of the country?
I'm real curious what kind of allocation % you'll be...
