I'm 7/14 but I don't know the time. I think early afternoon. Back when production was just starting I think my place in the time stamp line at Stephens was 103-108. I knew I was always on the bubble, then the MIC issue happened. Based on the Grainger thread, I would be on the bubble there if Zach's estimated allocation ends up on the low end for that dealership.

With 85 delivered or scheduled, I'd think it would put me well within their allocation but who knows what that will be. Maybe a rash of folks switch to softtops and screw MIC folks again.

My family would rather me ditch the whole Bronco idea, so staying the course is going to get more difficult. My cross to bear.
I would think you'll be well within allocation. If you end up in first half I wouldn't switch. I'll repeat what I said though and I wish switching wasn't allowed because I'm afraid it's going to screw over folks that have been reserved here the entire time.

We were 68 in Stephens lineup based on TS but held out for the Wildtrack with Hardtop so getting bumped to 22. Our only disappointment is AMB not being offered, we can wait for a 2022. Going through the 2022 pricing guide we are glad Ford held the MY21 prices and the $695 credit is for the change to softop as standard. The MIC top costs $695.00, we will have to pick another color otherwise all good.

I was right there with you. What was your time? I was 3am CT. I think I was 60-65 or so last time. I started at like 78 I think the they had 99s and cancellations.

My thoughts exactly. If my place in the timestamp line is half or less than their allocations, then I'm probably in a good spot. My brother who is a late reservation (near the end)...I'm not sure what to tell him. Either ride it out and get a MY23 or 24, switch and get gouged, or just drop the idea and get another brand.

I've been reserved there not since the beginning, but I switched very early.

Just before 6am EST…I got tired of trying when it crashed and fell asleep.

Speaking of test driving: If you have the opportunity, I HIGHLY recommend attending the Off-Rodeo. I was lucky and the NH location is only an hour away from me. I've never done any heavy duty off-roading and this experience was unbelievable. A lot of behind the wheel time as well as learning how to guide others over obstacles.
I may have to upgrade to a Sasquatch package now!

Yes, I am planning on going to an off rodeo...we were thinking about Moab...
We won't be off roading much but do plan on taking our bronco on trips out west soooo....
I had planned on getting an OBX until I drove a Wildtrak, I really like the interior and the graphics 😍😍😍

I applaud granger for their openness. The smaller dealers with large reservations was a train wreck coming but limited MY21 builds eased this until now. Ford will never change their ways unless you people let your voice and your money talk. Fords CS phone line should light up.

You've got to be golden for a super early 2022. I'm not concerned for myself with my position really but if I were you I wouldn't worry at all.

Honestly...

Some of us DID reach out and consult with John about switching over our initial trim selection.

Why should I change my original reservation/order when I'm 99'd and will have to change everything when the 22 banks open up? So that I can see a picture on my reservation page of a WT instead of a BB? It seems like something trivial to ask the Stephens team to do.

Nowhere in the original price protection announcement did it tell me that I SHOULD make the change. Sure, it stated "Equivalent,".. but what does that mean? They never gave us that answer.

That's when I reached out about this back in JUNE. John had no more information than us. We deemed that it really shouldn't matter.

If Ford gave us a clearer outlook on this, I would then agree with you about the no sympathy. I did reach out for consultation on this, however.

Instead, we get an announcement on 10/8 FINALLY giving us more clarity of what we should have done before 10/1.

Am I going to call and complain to Ford? Is this going to make me cancel my order? No. Can I be a little ticked about this? Absolutely.
X2 Exact same conversation but mine was back in early August.

Why would people switching affect folks like you that have been reserved at SAC the entire time? Unless I am misunderstanding this whole thing, if you are in line before me then why would it affect you if I change to another dealership since I'm after you?

Well, I guess If someone had an earlier time stamp than you, and switched to SAC it might affect you?

Not being a smart ass. Actually curious and trying to figure this stuff out since I'm so late to the game.

If Ford really did do straight reservation order it wouldn't matter. But with this allocation mess it might. The bigger killer for us is allocations going to other dealers that end up as stock for them instead of fulfilling reservations elsewhere.

Is $1k under invoice still on the table for transfers though?

Does anyone know when the 2022 allocation will be set? The folks on the granger thread are losing their minds.
Wondering the same, I know I was 50 or so behind the projected 2021 allocation. But, with the way they were producing based on part availability I wonder how I sit these days.
