I think it’s reasonable to conclude that they may have allocated the first X thousand of MIC 2 tops to the dirt mountain gang and then allowed production to continue for new builds. Replacing the tops isn’t the same as a new vehicle being built down the assembly line.
It feels like I keep reading the same pages over and over with the same stupid crap. This thread should be put out of it's misery. :(

They are building new MIC Broncos but it doesn't seem to be very many. My is in next weeks batch and if you look at the 9/20 build week thread there is less than 20 of us in there with window stickers and MIC 2.0 tops. I am sure they are building more than that but in previous build weeks there have been a lot more forum members getting window stickers.
You do realize b6g represents possibly 5% of the total customer base? That build chart is really of little use.

I think we have the same build and similar build situation! Cheers!

We must be twins?! LOL

Do you know if FE's get molle panels on the back of our front seats?

So it looks like Ford has lied to us once again. Despite Ford clearly saying that the Broncos already produced with the bad MIC Tops that are currently being held at MAP (actually sitting on Dirt Mountain) would get new tops before producing any additional vehicles with hard tops, it looks like that is not the case. The FE shown below was produced this week (9/16/21), shows as built, and is scheduled to be shipped. How can Ford continually lie to (or at the very least mislead) the customers over and over again?

Care to comment @Ford Motor Company ?

As far as I know, yes they do.

Since I'm paying cash for my Bronco instead of just a small down payment do you think my dealer will take my letter seriously?
Hopin'so. Depends on your dealer. Did they give you a price agreement. Mine did. Asked them for the price I would pay and they sent me a sheet with the figures to finance. Not paying all cash, but at least $12,00 down plus whatever I can get out of my '17 Outback which is looking like at least $2,500 or more.

Looked great on paper but probably didn’t pan out in practice. Why stop overall Bronco production if they are starting to crank out hard tops quicker than expected? Hopefully, they are pulling dirt mountain rigs and replacing hard tops while they are also continuing with full builds.
I'm sure this is the case. Putting a new MIC top on is a quick step and it means they move inventory out and more importantly, get paid. I'm sure they want to move those Bronco's out on Dirt Mountain as soon as possible and aren't holding them there because of some conspiracy theory.

Doubt it! Why would they not want to be paid for inventory they have? Conspiracy theory and stupid to think that Ford would not want to move inventory that is backed up.

Lord, cherry pick one Q and A and overreact…. Read the entire letter. It clearly states that FE will be built and shipped. They push only unscheduled MIC tops to MY22. There are countless customers with day 1 and 2 and 3 reservations with no build dates, the true first in first out….. oh well I guess there is another meaningless thread to read somewhere around here….

You guys with units at "Dirt Mountain" sitting for extended time may want to consider paint jobs and not just tops...
This is one of the reasons all will go down the line for reinspection. If they need anything, they'll take care of it before they ship.

Why the hell would they schedule hardtop Broncos when they have a shitload waiting for tops? It would make zero sense. They'll be lucky to replace all the bad tops and complete all FEs this year.
The FE Broncos at dirt mountain already have been built. They are 2021. If they are behind getting all FE builds completed then they are building them with the MIC tops and someone may get their Bronco before a dirt mountain Bronco.

FE doesn't apply to my comment as it's known that they're ALL getting built and shipped this year. I was referring to MIC builds being VERY few outside of dirt mountain, already shipped orders that are recalled and FE.

Does this include the 3 months of oxidation on my Red truck?

I'm on page 8 of 12, I can't read anymore. Seems to me Ford is overproducing and that's a bad thing...I can't figure it out.



On another note, I have never been involved with a first year rollout so I don't know how they are suppose to go. All I ever hear is how bad they are- Explorer, Tesla, Mustang.

Can anybody give me an example of a good first year rollout? Serious question. Is just the way they are? Are they all a cluster...? If so, I guess Ford is doing ok, first year is just freak show.

I enjoy it, it's like watching a reality TV show. Seeing the actions and reactions of a major corporation to expected and unexpected circumstance. Throw in the social reactions by those here and its actually fascinating.

I'm out. there's bigger issues.
