I think this refers to dealer stock vs what will be scheduled over the next (few?) week(s) I'm reading this as the same old song and dance. 4 Door, Soft top, Big Bend, 2.3. That leaves the other stuff to existing res holders. Retail orders had to be finalized on 9-30,so this would make sense.Taken from Blue Oval Forums - Posted this afternoon

Closing in on a deal for a '22 GX460 on the boat right now in Claret Mica (deep, dark red) for under MSRP with larger tires installed.
Pretty sure stock builds won't be considered against allocation. I mean, they are definitely still building customer trucks. It's not as if Ford is gonna build someone else's truck because a certain dealer had too many stock trucks deli3And this is where the allocation system makes no sense. Because if your dealership had a large numbers of orders but most were not buildable or softies then the allocation slots were already taken up. Now that they have the capability to build your order your dealership has no more allocation slots to accept new builds. I like Ford and even own stock but when they knew there was this much problem in the production they should have revised the system to get vehicles to the people who had first said they wanted the Bronco. Why lose money by pissing off your customers and letting them buy from your competitor because they don't want to or can't wait anymore?
I will have to find it but stock builds DEFINITELY took up allocation spots during MY21. While I don't see this being a huge factor in dealerships getting their retail orders it will affect some medium sizes and small ones if they have harder to fill higher tier trims so get sent base and BB models for some months. If a small dealership has 12 allocations for the year and doesn't have a buildable unit for a month they will get whatever unit Ford decides to send them and they still only get 12 for the year not 13 models. Now you've screwed one of those reservation holders out of their build even if it is buildable later in the year.Pretty sure stock builds won't be considered against allocation.
