The dealer just called - the truck arrived and will be ready when dealer prep is done. The dates for this order are: early order placed 10/7, confirmed 10/15, VIN assigned 11/12 (NFA00686), blend date 03/17, in production 03/20, built 06/17, shipped 06/21, arrived 07/12. It took Ford almost 10 months from order to arrival - 152 days to start the build, 91 days to finish the build, 4 days start shipment, and 22 days to arrive at the dealer. Various Ford sources gave all sorts of excuses except for the real reason (I suspect) - chip shortage. I sold my 35K mile 802a 2019 Raptor back to the dealer in May 2021 for 1k shy of the price I originally paid them and have been without a ride since. I will be good to be back in the saddle again.

Congratulations on finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

Mine was originally ordered last July as a 21, reordered in October as a 22 since it wasn't going to be built even though the dealership had a valid allocation. The 22 was supposedly given a priority since I had originally placed an order for a 21 that wasn't built. It was finally delivered in mid-May.

The upside is that since they split the awful blue interior from the 37PP for 22, I was able to reorder what I really wanted. A 37PP with a black interior. A long wait, but worth it.

Ford still needs to streamline their ordering process. If this is the model they're pushing, they've got a lot of work to do.
