This is what really ticks me off, because they clearly are producing new cars with hardtops on the line right now and shipping them out. For all the talk of "we can't create new units until all the tops are replaced", they are clearly focusing on building new cars and slipping on new tops when they have excess capacity. If that weren't the case, you'd see more consistent numbers on a daily basis. I would be willing to bet that the number of tops being replaced goes up on days when the ratio of Rangers:Broncos being produced at MAP favors the Rangers.

They have to keep all the worker’s at work. Meaning MAP had to stay open to produce Bronco’s and Rangers. As a fellow Union guy I get it…. But what they should have done is close MAP for 2 weeks and taken all the worker’s to DM and just push them all out. Which is probably an easy task. Listen I am a 7/13, 2nd hour reserve. My build was pushed 4 times til finally 8/12. I know I still have at least 3 more weeks to wait. My problem is I sold my daily driver in one day and now driving my 10 yr old F-150 everyday.

Agreed - it sounds like that's what they did for a week or two, kept hearing about how they were pulling out all the stops and working all shifts....all to put out like 100 Broncos a day or something? It just seems incredible to me that it's going to take them 8-10 weeks (so basically 40-50 business days) to replace 1 part on 4,000-6,000 cars when they can produce a similar number of cars from scratch in 10-12 business days.

Nice! As a 7/21 blend and being in Vegas, maybe I'll get mine and my Bronco on the same train as yours...maybe.

Who did you buy it from? Get the rail number and track it. It's easy
West Motor up in Preston ID. I asked him to look to see where it was and if he could give me the rail car number but he just sent me a screen shot of the computer screen and I can’t see a rail car number on there. It was in East St. Louis Illinois yesterday so I’m thinking I should have it by the end of next week as long as Union Pacific doesn’t go on strike with the new 💉 mandate they got yesterday.

Just curious is anyone's pizza tracker not working? Mine has not been working since yesterday about 5.
Mine went down yesterday morning. It reverted back to the day I originally got an expected date of 8/18, this was the week before they announced they were holding all for MIC tops. I got my built email this morning though. Tracker didn't change to reflect that.
