For a while, we have always had a carrot in front of us to signify the next step.

First it was the reservations, then it was the BNP, then it was the ordering, then the supposed email as to our time frames.

All that has passed. Some have gotten vins but most have not.

So is that all we have left to look forward to? A random email from Ford on any given week that says congratulations you've been picked.

I know for some of the 99ers, they're waiting for the 2022 BNP to go live.

The only thing I can think of is Ford's statement about being in full cycle in August. Don't even know if that's still a thing.

I guess basically for my sanity, I need something to focus on instead of this no mans land limbo we are in.

Anyone else heard of anything "upcoming next"? (Well except the fact that Ford keeps promising more brand new vehicles).

Next is people cancel because they can’t wait. Followed by more posts from people saying they got VINs. Last, people will cry over how long it takes for the Bronco to arrive on dealership lots after it’s been built, as this can take time. Followed by, I GIT MY BRONCO, now what?

Mine isn't really a carrot. It’s more of a what’s the next freak out after we start taking delivery. But I’d rather have it be something like that versus my hardtop just split in half.

Yeah... I just think tell people and they can deal, leave them in the dark, and their imagination takes over.

Maybe my next deadline for me will be either something concrete from Ford or something concrete from Jeep... Whichever comes first.

But dam Ford, give us something to look forward to (besides our eventual Bronco).

I agree that the demo models arriving at dealerships will be a big step. It’ll seem more real… Maybe that’s just for us Canadian’s that don’t get to see these things touring around the country. Is the Bronco even real?? I’m not sure at this point :D

As a 99er, it is the 22 BNP and ordering. I find drinking helps offset my anxiety/dread that the painted tops won't be available early in the year. I would feel lucky to get one by this time next year.

For me it's the build week of 7/26...

I think mannequins showing up at local dealership will inject some positive vibes knowing that customers orders are coming right afterwards.

I know I will be visiting my local dealership often to check them out.
My dealer already invited me to drive the mannequin when it comes in, that will be cool to hold me over the 6-8 weeks until mine comes in!
