Well when you go to the ford website and try to build a BASE bronco nothing shows up. All other trims
are fine, what you trying to order?

Local dealer has a reservation page on their website that it says it will only show you what FORD is letting them submit and Bronco is not on there.

I gave my dealer specs for a basic big bend build and they say they cannot get it to go through. I was just wondering if other dealers are having the same issue.

Was it a 2-door and/or did it have a V6? There have been reports that WBDO will not allow orders for any 2-door nor any V6.

I placed an order for 2 door base bronco only option auxiliary switches at noon today and it went thru. Also got email from Ford saying order was confirmed.

I know it will be years before I get it even if I do ever get it. Getting ready to order 2 door Wrangler Willys as my plan B.

I had a dealer working on an order for me last week and he told me the system wouldnt let him order a 2.7L. A dealer in another thread has NOT had this issue, but....

I was attempting to place a second order with a different dealer last week and they couldn't get it to go through. Oddly enough yesterday it wasn't letting them add the Sasquatch package to any order. It did today even though I decided against Sas because I'm being told it is still holding up orders.

something's really odd. dealer still hasn't been able to get it in. said they have involved their dealer rep at this point.

My original dealer told me the same thing when I tried to originally convert my reservation to an order. Either they don’t know what they are doing, or they are playing the allocation game with their preferred builds. I know this because I fought this same battle for a month with my original dealer, and got fed up and switched. From the time I hung up with ford to switch my dealer, it took 10 mins for my new dealer to call me and enter my order into the system.

If it was a loaded Badlands… it’s a miracle! It’d go right through
