in Production status until 10/28/22, changed to deliver to dealer, called dealer who said it arrived and being prepped, had a few parts on order, like guage cluster. Was told it should be ready next week. Next week 11/2/22 was told Ford took it back because it was Miss-built. Now no one knows a dam thing and website says delivered. Ford Sucks at this! Not even counting the screw job I am taking on the $5,000 MSRP increase I am taking because they can’t make a freaking truck in a reasonable time frame!

ordered 11/8/21
In production 7/29/22
delivered dealer 10/24/22
miss-built and taken back by Ford 11/02/22
That’s one of the issues on G3 trucks now, they are being built and shipped sometimes, but some go to a lot to be completed later. Now we’re seeing more and more QC issues pop up. I’ve never seen your status before or a dealer have to order a gauge cluster after the truck arrive?

My 2022 screwed up order is lost but dealer sold me a 2023.

final outcome, Ford website only said 2022 was delivered, then dropped off the website completely. transferred to 3 different ford customer service agents and none could locate status of my order. Said to call dealer, so left message with dealer Monday NOV 28, 2022 (over a year since it was ordered), got a call back and was told they had no idea where the truck was that I ordered, but said they just got two Raptors delivered and if I wanted I could buy one of them. So I did, cost $3,600 more than the one I had ordered but did come with carbon Fiber and tailgate appliqué and its a 2023! Yes built in November 2022. The 2022 I ordered did show back up at dealers on Dec 1, 2022 (production 7/29/22) BUT it still had no guage cluster! What a cluster! Got my 2023, done with all this order stuff.

what do you mean by no "gauge cluster"? What part of the vehicle are you referring to?

The sales person had a picture, but I don’t. But no driver guage cluster, the whole 12” screen for speedometer, Tach… was missimg, as well as the spray in bedliner where the two big issues . The dealer was going to order and install it but Ford said no, and picked up the truck and it was labeled as miss-built which is supposed to give it priority to get fixed (as I understand it) but Ford delivered it again a month later, again without driver screeen/gauge cluster.

I like both wheels, but opted for the Raptor non-beadlock, so I changed them Out.
