Order placed with Ford on 10/8/21. Truck was built 4/18 and arrived at my dealer yesterday morning (MSRP guy here BTW).

Left dealership around 1:30 and was able to install the Bedrug and Retrax Pro by dinner! Next up will be backup lights, wheels, tint, buff and ceramic, along with a few other odds and ends. I’ll be doing everything but wheels and tint.

The truck….well, let’s just say it’s nicer than both my Gen 2’s in every way. The 3 things I noticed immediately were the seats. The seats are way more comfortable than the normal seats and way more comfortable than my Gen 2 with Recaro’s. Next thing I noticed was how good this thing drives. Granted, I only have a 100 miles or so…..but, I can tell it’s way smoother than the Gen 2’s. Last thing (actually first thing) is this color! Wow…..I figured it would be a nice color when I ordered it….but I didn’t realize how good it was going to look until I saw it. Opinions are like buttholes, as everyone has one……but, the AMB is my favorite color for a truck I’ve ever owned. It’s awesome. As you can see in these photos, it’s pretty dark and subtle without direct sun light. When the sun hits it, it’s amazing. I was planning on wrapping with stealth…..but, after seeing this color in person, I can’t bring myself to covering it up!

Thanks,
Congratulations ... AMB looks definitely stunning.
I was debating between AMB or Black .. ended up going with black. The truck is sitting in New Orleans railyard awaiting convoy pickup and is 2 hours away from the dealership.
Can you please tell the order date & delivered date for Retrax Pro. I need to get that asap.

Ordered my Retrax back in November and got it within a week or so. Not sure how supplies are at the moment. Good luck.

Welcome fellow AMB owner! My only gripe with this fantastic color is the fingerprints. It’s a magnet. But with the ceramic coat it is pretty darn easy to keep clean. This is my first really dark color, and yeah it’s a little high maintenance, but I’m willing to deal with the trade off.

What the god dam point of owning a pick up with carpet. Ridiculous

If you decide to go stealth, here is my 21 AMB wrapped. Goes from black, navy and even a grey tint depending on lighting.

Congrats! I ordered the same color and wheels as you! Can’t wait to get mine! Finally got a build date this week for mine! June 6. I order my first raptor October 5 21 and that one got totaled in transport April 6…… so waiting on the replacement Raptor now! I’m so glad I order Amimatter blue! I had a black gen1 and a white Gen 2 had to switch it up!
Enjoy your awesome truck!
