I'm so far down the line I know mine will be a '22. But, I wish you all much luck. And if it's OK, I'll just live vicariously through those that get the good news.

You're not wrong. I completely understand that my dealer had no say but if they want to sell vehicles they have to drive Ford to do the right thing.... I'm not saying me going off on them will accomplish anything (may make me feel a little better) but what do you do, just acquiesce to getting screwed? Not sure I have that in me.
If you were at a large superstore type dealer, I think you might actually have something with a dealer bending the ear of Ford. Kinda like the rumblings last fall where Ford changed and brought allocation into the mix, supposedly after dealers were whining.

I think all you'd really be doing is your last thought. Giving it a go to make yourself feel better and knowing you tried. Good luck.

Because I didn't preview at my dealer's two days ago, I know I am not getting an e-mail today. I would like to say that has put me at peace for the past two days, but that would be a stretch. Alas, there is always next Tuesday.

My sales guy told me they have one allocation set to scheduled this cycle. I don't think he knows how to find what order is under preview. It seems like they only have 1 computer that has WBDO at their location. When I went in for my order he had to go to someone else's office.

I still have some hope, but it's fading fast. It's a small dealer and they only have 5 total allocations with 2 FEs. I'm confident that my timestamp is 1st or 2nd in line but I have a really bad feeling a couple of base orders down the list could get scheduled due to commodity shortages and bump me out.

I think Ford mostly did everything right with the Bronco, up to the point of allocation limits (allocations 100% should have been based on orders and their timestamps) and this priority order bullshit. The people out there saying how those priority orders weren't a big deal don't really understand the situation. That X number high demand commodities used, added with my dealer's small allocation, could have very well pushed me out of a 21. Shit will not go down smooth if I am told I have to wait for a 22 with a 2 hour and 8 minute time stamp...
So scare!!!! What will you do?

Because enough of your aren't ready to stroke out....WBDO showed one of mine previewed yesterday, today it's not showing preview, build week or VIN assigned. Not sure what this means but I really, really, really hope WBDO didn't spaz out last night and wipe everything that was previewing.

ETA. Never mind, guess it just wasn't awake yet. Showing SVS again, sorry for the ulcer.

Waiting for upset entitled Karens and Kens listing their 7/13 timestamp and loaded specs and crying why ‘later and lesser people’ are getting emails and how their summer and life is ruined because of ‘lesser’ brand like Ford not handling it well like their $200K Porsche order.

I saw a few people on here saying now even tow package could mean a delay?!? Hopefully, your keypad, roof rack and paint protection don't cause a delay, too! 😆

Did u try to order for 2hr and 8 min or did I just happen to log right on and order? I regret not trying longer.

Yes, complaining because you think a certain build should be first would make you Karen. Owning a Porsche almost automatically makes you a Karen because most wealthy people are entitled (I probably shouldn't generalize but hey I'm not perfect...).

Complaining because you were first in line doesn't really though, I mean why else have time stamps if they didn't represent an earlier place in line.... People should be complaining because Ford changed the rules by handing out 3000 priority orders so dealers could make their "priority" clients happy.
