Well, after 11 months my truck is finally in the garage. I guess I can change my forum name now too :)

Here's a breakdown of each step of the process, meant to generally help give some peace of mind (or aggravation) for those of you that are still waiting (get it?) like I was for so, so long.

Just to let you guys know, I received 0 e-mails from Ford during the whole process. 0 communication other than from my dealer.

Order Date: 10/12/2021
Order Confirmed: 10/15/2021
In Production: 07/24/2022
Built: 07/28/2022
Shipped: 08/04/2022 (Never reflected this on the tracker, I only found out because I called my salesman)
Arrived at Dealer: 09/01/2022 (Same thing, not reflected on tracker. Was sitting at Orlando railyard for 3 weeks before getting loaded onto a convoy. Arrived at dealer same day as loaded on convoy.)

I got lucky and they did the PID the same day cause of how long I've been waiting.

Lastly, I wanted to mention that when the truck came it had no spray in bed liner. Ford removed this option without notifying me. I did not get charged for it, but it was listed on my original order sheet as well as one of the previous window stickers on the tracker. It was changed at some point along the way.

Only mods so far is 5% tint all around and 45% on the windshield. I have an Evil Manufacturing Frame Cut Bumper and a Full Race Gen 2 Intercooler (it fits) waiting for install. Will make a post in the what did you do to your raptor today thread when I get them installed sometime next week hopefully.

The truck is nuts. I would wait again. If you're concerned about waiting but for sure have an allocation, please just wait. It will be so worth it the first time you get in the truck.

Hope this helps!

I also forgot to mention, the 2022 now has blue/black combo seats, not strictly blue. Also did not get a notification about this but I knew it was gonna happen because of you lovely folks on this forum! Sticker still says all blue recaro.

After going through the delivery checklist posted by another helpful member whose name escapes me at the moment, I can officially say that either the guy that did my PID fixed everything or my truck was just good to go. I hand washed it yesterday, no paint imperfections, my exhaust tips are *somewhat* level (you really gotta look hard to notice), and after a 600 mile drive I've had 0 problems.

Congratulations. Mine is sitting in Dearborn on the current chip hold and I ordered 10/5 but updated the order due to the option package changes on 10/26.

I am glad they changed the seats. I like the black/blue combo better than the original all blue. I think they will look good in the AMB. Haven't seen one in person yet. :)

Yeah the black and blue is slowly growing on me. The blue is much darker than I thought too but overall its a very nice package on the interior, I came from a 2017 C63 Edition 1 so I went from very hard bucket seats to these.

Hopefully your order gets shipped out soon, but from all the posts I read in the past 11 months there's pretty much no rhyme or reason to any of the production so your guess is as good as mine.

You placed your order 6 days before I did. About two weeks ago I got the email basically saying sorry it’s taking so long. Long story short, I cut ties with that order and found a truck back in Feb. I’d still be waiting for the ‘production has started e-mail’ if I hadn’t done that. Crazy

Awesome! Congrats, I ordered a 22' mid-July, it was built this past Monday, still no shipping notification or anything like that yet, so I agree the notification system really does suck. Although I was provided a 8/29 build start date and it did switch to in production last Monday, just would have been nice to track the progress throughout. Good help on the bed liner and chip, I'm going to ask my dealer to double check all that is good to go once it arrives to the dealer.

Any thoughts for bed products are you doing a tonneau or rack system?

I also order oxford white, no 37 package though, I think I will just order aftermarket 37s, I'm fine with that.

It’s beautiful! I gotta say, the looks of the Gen 3 are definitely growing on me. And I really like the look of your truck with the “37” decals over the white paint!

Would you be able to snap a pic or two of the interior? I’d like to see the black and blue recaros I keep hearing about.
