For those who were stuck in production from early August but didn’t get ‘built’ until September, did they at least add the hard top prep kit?

My dealer was able to give me my railcar # today. Does anyone know the easiest way to track the car?
Given you're a Granger delivery like me it's CSX and the number to call is 800-235-2352. Choose locate and speak prefix (mines TTGX) then the numeric part.

I think there's a real good chance we were on the same train/car given our delivery dates are the same. The car I tracked was in Chicago>Indiana>Fort Madison IA where I believe it was dropped on Monday. Then car was on to MO. Crickets since. Let me know what you find out.

My rail car was in Kansas City as of 09/22. But I have a feeling my truck was already unloaded. Probably same day as yours since that is the date that Ford updated my expected delivery date. I would guess that it is on a truck somewhere in transit to Granger. When does Ford say yours will be there?

Ya based on that timeline had to be on same train. My date is 10/2-10/8 still on tracker.

Interesting. My dates updated from what you show to 9/24-9/30 earlier this week.

Are you flying out and picking up or shipping in?
Still undecided. Shipping quotes all seem to be about $1,050, and I figure flying out will run me $500 - $600. A dollar amount is close enough that I’ll just do whatever is most convenient. I am going to wait and decide when the truck gets there. It’s hard to really plan when you don’t know what actual date it’ll be. What are you doing?

Likely flying out. Use points on Delta. But those one way flights have gone bonkers for most dates(40k miles). Only one direct from SLC and is at 9pm. Like you still playing by ear, but would like to meet folks at Granger and shake some hands. Make most of road trip back.

no hard top prep kit. But I'm not too worked up about it. I'm not getting a hard top for a long time. I figure I need to wire the wiper, the defrost and the washer fluid. Or screw it.

Thanks for responding! That’s B.S. minimum Ford could do after holding it so long…

I need to know how you got your hands on TD5 defenders?? You putting the TD in older frames?

You know, you have me thinking. I might try to argue this point with my dealer. They said soft tops built in September would have the prep kit. I realize my rig was built on 8/9 and then probably had quality control repairs completed on 9/11. But the ford tracker says built on 9/11.

I'm going to bring this up with them.
