Not sure if everyone saw this but posted by @DealerInsider. Gives a sense of the relative commodity issues. This came from the April Ford Marketing deck.

Below are the National (NAT) percentages and how @DealerInsider represented this (because it says varies by dealer) was that if a dealer had 10 builds with 2.7 only 6-7 (i.e. 60-70%) would preview and therefore get scheduled for production. You can also read into this the more you have (sucks to be me) the lower the risk of previewing/scheduling. But time stamp hopefully can help you after the priority builds clear.

I wanna say that interpretation of the right column isn't quite correct. I don't think it means that only x% of one of these given items can get scheduled. I think it means that only x% of the total production (for the period) can include those items. That's a distinct difference.

In the former description, if 100 people ordered a brush guard, only 10-15 of those Broncos will be made. That's not logical.

Taken another way, we know that the two-door was a popular option, of up to 40% of all orders. If only 20-25% of two-door orders were to be scheduled, that would be only 8-10% of production being two-doors. Surely Ford planned for a much higher percentage. In fact, I would say Ford planned for 20-25%.

I have 7 of those on my FE. Can't wait to get my rig next January.
You FE guys need to remember that most of you are getting some of the first builds, so your builds will likely be taking a big chunk of those percentages. It's the regular non-FE people that may get pushed back.

To add to this further, the only real problem will be the variance between the planned capacity for an item and the actual demand of that item in customer orders. Meaning, if only 10-15% of orders will have the brush guard, then there's really not a problem. But if 50% ordered Sasquatch, there's going to be an issue if Ford only has capacity for 30-37% of orders to have Sasquatch.

TL;DR: Without knowing all of the info, I wouldn't freak out. To those thinking of canceling their orders, do it if you must, but most sensible people would wait for their estimated build date in May to at least see where you land.

Not that I am complaining since I ordered the leather. If we have learned nothing else in this journey it's that apparently consistency is not King.

Welp I have 6 of the 10. Looks I'll be getting a 2022 model. In the end this actually works out for me since I've taken a beating in the Stock Market recently. Also I'd rather get a 2022 anyway then get a super late 2021.

What's really gonna suck, at least for me anyway, is when Bronco's start showing up on dealer lots for sale to the general public due to that 20% some dealers are gonna get!!! And I'm still waiting for mine to be built!!!
That is the million dollar question. When they called reservation holders and the people told them they no longer wanted to buy a Bronco, did they cancel them and theoretically move everyone up the list or did they refund the $100 and put the reservation in their pocket for a 20% no match. I'm sure dealers did it both ways.
