Only a guess but the line is probably taking priority. Thats how this is happening.

This type of shit rips families apart.

Enjoy your next family reunion.
hahaha...not at all upset with him, in fact, Im happy he's getting his sooner than expected. my frustration only lies with Ford sending a press release on how they would handle the 2nd Gen MIC rollout and not following through with their own commitment.

Remember how ford said they will prioritize 2nd Gen Tops:
1st Replace tops on already delivered Broncos
2nd Replace all tops on built but not delivered Broncos
3rd Produce new Broncos with 2nd gen tops

Well, they LIED! My First Edition was built 8/17 (right before they shut down), my brother's First Edition was built 9/8. He got a "shipped" email today!!!! I have NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH!!!

Oh, and for what its worth, we live in the same town!

edit:
Mine was reserved first, ordered first and built first. Both are First Editions with the only difference being color.
Same dealership? That would be the only explanation.

Think about it this way. Look what a great life you have to be in a fam able to afford two First Editions and have lived a happy enough life to still feel a sense of surprise/emotion when you see people lie and life isn’t fair.

Does anyone else see this as a good thing?
To me this likely means that they are replacing tops AND building new Broncos. How is that bad?
Yes, they could try harder to do a first-in first-out approach but we know they are busting their butts to fix a pretty bad mistake.
Just my 2 cents....

Not that it matters at this point, but you've got your "1st" and "2nd" backwards there.

Maybe like Ford, your parents lied too when they told you they loved you as much as your brother.

Ford is in a no win situation with this forum.

They get lambasted if they don't communicate... they get lambasted if they do communicate and it's not what we want to hear or if what they communicated changes. Which... if things change after communication, we say, "Why say one thing and it changes!?! Ford should have said nothing at all!"

I won't even ask the "What should have Ford done?" question because the answer we want is the answer we don't want and we would lambaste Ford for communicating what we don't want to hear.

It's all MADDENING! Ha ha ha!!!

It's crazy to think Ford isn't doing everything they can to get Broncos fixed and in our hands because end of the day whether they are already built and waiting for new roofs, or in production... regardless of timestamp, order date, etc... the more Broncos shipped to Dealers the more profit for Ford bottom line.

Quite honestly, my biggest frustration with the entire reservation/timestamp process is Dealer Allocation. Dealer Allocation f's up the entire new world way of reservation & timestamp prioritization.

the sarcasm is quite blatant in your response and I'm sure intended that way. not sure if its contrived from jealousy or antagonism...either way, you need help.

No sarcasm bro, you’re only reading it that way. I’ve been on Dirt Mountain since June. I was a minute one reservation but based on the life I’ve lived I would not only expect that, but completely expect to be one of the last out w mine covered in bird shit, soaked inside, and a fresh coat of animal piss on each tire lol

For further clarification....I'm not mad he is getting his sooner, in fact, I'm happy for him! My frustration is with Ford sending out a press release on how the rollout of the 2nd gen MIC tops would happen and then NOT FOLLOWING THROUGH WITH THEIR OWN COMMITMENT.

I realize there are other threads discussing this. My thread was created to show that:
1. Mine was reserved first
2. Mine was ordered first
3. Mine was built first (8/17..day before plant closure due to MIC tops)
4. They are the exact same First Edition build except his is Lightening Blue and mine is Cactus Gray
5. His was built "after" plant started building again 9/8 and he has a ship date of 10/8

Hey Ford, how do you explain this?????!!!!! Does your word mean ANYTHING?
Dude they were too busy telling everyone about the 2022 Raptor.......... your shit is old news man.
