You have to log into the vehicle dashboard on the main site and scroll down to see all of that

Here's my best guess about the mic and softies... I believe right around that shortage announment I think it was on 8/2 ford put a hold on any additional Broncos being built. I'm thinking they wanted to double the qc checks on all tops. But it doesn't explain why 8/5 builds are sent out 1s and 2s whereas a 8/3,8/4 has not. I'm hoping after the announcement the shipped emails come out.

Crossing fingers that since we were built last week we didn't get sent straight to the holding lot and moved to back of line for replacements. If they do decide to replace oldest first that would leave us the back of line...

Yeah if that's the case, then what are we looking at? Like November/December? We might not want a car delivered that's been sitting in a lot like that for 5-6 months.

Looks like we're in for a few more months of waiting.
The timeline is a bit confusing. The Awareness Communication says:

Does that mean Broncos built after July 21 that are still "In Production" but not "Built" are OK? I'm still holding out hope, but then this doesn't give me the warm and fuzzies:

I've been giving Ford a lot of leeway, but once again, I don't think the right hand even knows the left hand exists, much less has met it.

CONFIRMED: Soft-tops that are already built (even if they show “in production”) are still on track to be delivered. They will not be affected by the upcoming announcement.

I had this confirmed by someone at Ford, who is very knowledgeable about the Bronco situation. I can’t provide receipts, due to my source wanting to stay anonymous. So you’re just gonna have to trust me based on my previous track record.
I tried to view your previous track record but it's private (which makes sense), so I'll take your world for it because this concerns me, lmao. Thanks for the info, I was wondering where this announcement left me. I had a 8/6 blend but my modules didn't pop until 8/9 and I haven't heard a peep since.

I'll add to the confusion. I was originally a 7/19 build, pushed to 8/2. Asked my dealer on 7/29 if it was realistic that I'd get built the following week. He responded on 7/30 with a copy of the vehicle invoice from Ford to him and it was dated 7/21.

In my manufacturing world, we don't receive factory invoicing until something is built.
