Well no one from the 9/13 build week got a window sticker. Most got delayed to October/November. I remember a MAP employee saying something was going on but he couldn’t specify. Seems obvious at this point. Shipping and production has seemed odd the last couple weeks as well. I guess it’s all the MIC swaps?

No production of the Bronco for the week of 9/13/21 production will resume 9/20/21
I don't doubt this because a lot people were push out of this week. I was rescheduled for this week and my Dealer gave me an update Friday that my order was sent to Plant. So what gives? There has to be more to it than no Broncos are being produce 9/13 build week.:unsure:

The information posted here a few days ago is that the MIC top replacement happens in the detailing/accessory shed, not the MAP assembly floor, so hopefully top replacement will continue even while Bronco production is paused.

Yes but it was also said that the DM Broncos will be retested which I think would have to happen using the assembly line Test equipment and then water tested.

The Ranger and Bronco share a final line but have different body shops. They likely pulled all the workers from Bronco's body shop to get the tops replaced and a few from final since the workload is lower only running Ranger.

They have to meet their Ranger quota. See my other comment in the thread from a MAP employee.

That's fine that us 9/13's got pushed... But how about Ford actually communicated that with us ahead of time? Which they did not!

And who has a good answer as to why we got pushed 5 weeks and yet new builds about to get VIN's this week will have build weeks 2 weeks before ours?

Now I don't really expect an answer here, just pointing out the fact that this continues to be a cluster f**k from Ford. Makes some of us really happed we switched to soft tops just to get the same treatment as our hard top brothers were given before.
