they retooled their lines for non-automotive chip production.

Now they are not as quick to switch back as they made commitments to others when the automakers vacated their capacity.
Citation needed.

I received a VIN but, this news makes me nervous. I have 4d Black Diamond with MIC, 2.7, and tow.
Since you have a VIN, you should also have a build week estimate. That should mean ford has the commodities needed to build your unit. Those of us without VINs and build week estimates should be the ones nervous.

My main concern with this "deadly sin" list is how sure is anyone that these "sins" will be absolved by the time they start working on MY22. For me I currently have 2 (3 if you count MOD top) but what I am most concerned with is the painted MOD top that I am willing to wait for. If Webasto (don't know if that's correct spelling) cannot make the MIC tops which are infinitely easier to make than a painted top, how sure is Ford or anyone for that matter that they will get their crap together and have the capacity to even manufacture those coveted painted tops Ford promises for next year. I guess I need to sit and Pray that they figure something out or I'm never getting a Bronco.

This is what I think as well, although not based in much reality. I have a VIN and a build week estimate, so I'm hoping for the best and expecting the worst. I have 3 of the 4 "sins" currently

Does Ford remember the Good 'Ol Days when they manufactured and sold 1 MILLION Mustangs in less than 2 years? Now, 70,000 Bronco's/year is hopeful??

Well sure, it's a lot easier to build cars with half the parts count, and a 10th of the options.

Wildtrak with MIC and tow here, so I'm screwed. I was a day 2 early morning reservation, but that doesn't seem to matter. UGH... not feeling good about this at all.

I was told that VIN simply guarantees car will be built, just not when it will be built. In speaking with my dealer, some VINS may not be built until late Q4 2021, which may lead to FY22 delivery.

They are not deadly until they run out for your vehicle.
