Curious to know how many of you are waiting for Mansquatch option to place order? I'm definitely waiting even it ends of being MY2022.

Depends on the difference between the BL and Squatch components.

Really thought I wanted one. But i'm going to go with a 2.7T just seems like a better value. My other vehicles are manual, the wife's FOCUS RS and my 328.

Not waiting. If they would give a date it might make it a harder choice. Say they committed to start shipping Oct 2021, 3 months or so wouldn't be a bad wait then.

BAM!!! EXACTLY!!!
I want the BaseMan Squatch pretty badly, but am not willing to wait an extra 6 to 12 months.
I finally decided to go auto and jump up to the 2.7 to nurse my butthurt feelings...LOL!
Still, I am pretty pumped for a Base2.7Squatch + bumpers + bikini top + etc etc for right at $40k.

The $50k Badlands still calls to me, but I just get angry at the immediate $5k jump just to get out of Base and gain almost nothing, if Mid was included, I'd probably be Big Bend or Black Diamond +Squatch or possibly Badlands non-Squatch.

@ $50K, I'd rather get a custom ordered F250 XL Crew 7.3L FX4 .....

I was considering waiting, but I'd rather put a different suspension lift on that both allows for 35s along with providing full articulation, even if it's greater than the $2500 upcharge on a Badlands.

I'm a fairly early reservation holder (5 am the first day). Wondering how many reservations in front of mine are waiting? Probably not many.

My salesman said 3rd quarter, but I’m fairly high on the dealer’s list. I’d be quite pleased to have it by 9/30, but I’m not holding my breath.

I'm getting a MT Badlands. Not willing to wait and pay $2500 more for bigger tires and wheels since BL will have most of not all of the 'squatch mechanicals.
Make sense. I'm getting the base.

Yep Im waiting for mansquatch and mansquatch v6. But im also waiting for money. Any generous posters want to make the dreams come true of a poor ginger living in such dreary conditions as the tropical island of Maui? Whatever the MSRP of the warthog is should suffice. Plus gas money. And something for lunch. ;) 🤙

I think about this question every day! The manual transmission is very important to me. I own the Ford 10 speed auto in my F-150, and admittedly it’s a terrific transmission. My brother has the 2.7 TT in his truck paired with that trans (coyote in mine) and that engine is also terrific... So I know the 2.7/10 speed would also make me happy. But I’ve owned two Wranglers with manuals, and I really want to go back to a similar arrangement. If Ford would just say when I could get a mansquatch it would make it easier. Ford also tossed in so many other caveats as well, I actually just wanted a Big Bend with mid package and mansquatch, but of course that’s impossible too. I can easily afford a Badlands where I could get everything I want, but for me the value seems very poor. I keep going back to the base mansquatch, so much for so little!! I also wonder if that “unicorn“ will disappear in model years moving forward? Another reason to just do it now as well. It’ll be a game time decision for me, but I suspect I’ll probably just wait for a manual basesquatch....

I am.
I have a late reservation so might as well wait for the Mansquatch.
