Must be nice to hear from your dealer. I haven’t heard a peep and I even emailed them twice in the last month with no reply. A douche move if you ask me. (And I’m not a problem customer…at all)
I'm sorry! That has to be frustrating. My sales manager gave my husband and I his number and he texts us when he gets updates or allows us to text him any time we have questions. Its a small dealership so we've had a awesome experience.

Dealers can see through WBDO when it's previewing. The sales manager let us know last week and this morning.

I asked my dealer about previewing and he told me that previewing is when you have received a build date and that there is no secret way to see if you are going to get picked. Not trying to shoot you down, just relaying what my dealer told me.

Your dealer isn’t right. Previewing is when ford is viewing the build to see if they have the parts availability to place it into the production schedule (get a build date). If it was when you have received a build date how would any of that be relevant? You would know your build date at that point. As I was told, it’s no guarantee you’ll get a date however your build is being looked at which is better than nothing. Your dealer should know how many allocations they have for this round of scheduling already and they can see which builds of theirs are being previewed.

I have also been told by my dealer mine is previewing. I am hopeful but based on what you are saying it’s probably a long shot for those of us with constrained features SAS 2 door 2.7 etc. right?

Well just asked my dealer if they knew how many allocations they have to this scheduling and said they didn’t. I feel that I’m talking to the wrong person. Should I be talking to the sales manager? Or the inventory manager?

It just depends!! They can only build a certain percentage of constrained features so just cross your fingers! Mine previewed in February when I had a MIC top and it never got pulled. I switched to a soft top in March, so I have no constraints now. The higher models with constraints are always going to get fewer builds!

It sounds like he’s just clueless - my salesman is a manager so he has access to WBDO (where all the orders for the dealerships status can be viewed). He either doesn’t have access to this and is too lazy to ask a manager to look into it or the managers won’t give them this information. They know their allocations and who is being previewed regardless of what they’re willing to tell you

Forgive me for asking, but even if we are scheduled, will we not still have to wait for an email until a couple days before the build date? Didn't Ford say that's how it was structured now?

Just means that I'll keep bugging the Ford Chat help on Fridays. I seems like sending out an automated email would save their agents work, but I don't make the calls. Then again, maybe they figure those jerks on Bronco6G are going to bug them either way.

I don't think it tells your build is previewing or not. Here is an example of the codes.
It shows what you pretty much see on the backdoor link, but slightly more detailed.
(I masked my IDs so my info are concealed)

Does that give you scheduled build week/day? I'm scheduled for week of 5/9 (so far) but I'm wondering if I can use this information to find out if I get bumped again. That's the only information I'm really interested in and so far, I can only get it from the chat.
