Does anyone have an answer from Ford or their dealer as to why there soft top is still "in Production"? I'm at 48 days in production now. Dealership just tells me that there isn't anything in my order that should be holding it up but other Broncos, with later build dates are arriving at the dealership.

Crickets. I went back and forth on direct/email thru this site with Ford - they were gathering info - i (in naïve fashion) expected some substantive response. Guess not.

Update - my inquiry has now been passed off to the "SUV Team" - if (IF!?) there is any assistance or information the SUV Team can offer, they will reach out to me within a few business days.

I am obviously not holding my breath - but will keep everyone advised.

Please do, I’m in the same boat and it’s driving me crazy. I switched to soft to get it sooner and now it’s looking (best case) like it’ll save me 3 weeks. I’m annoyed but also incredibly excited.

I'm also in FL - did you tracker(s) update/did you receive emails - or did you just get a call from your dealer - "It's here". Congrats by the way - very happy for you.

Mines been in production since 8/2 so this might be a good sign

Hopefully it's a good sign, but I find it weird that this is what my tracker looks like this since built or shipped hasn't been updated and I haven't got a built notification.
Let me know what y'all think

I can say from experience that a lot of that stuff is out of synch. And I have definitely heard of cars just showing up while tracker says in prod.

In my experience (just one guy), I found that all the different sources caught up in a day or two. Check with your dealer, too.

Looks great.

I have an estimated delivery days of 09/24-09/30, so supposedly it should make it to the dealer today. I don't have high hopes. I would guess I am still a week or 2 out.
