Update on Truck

Just sitting here watching Nascar, The race is about 20 miles from me. Better to watch on TV. Anyway I wanted to ask you guy's that have ordered a new truck, has your dealer kept you up to date on the build of the truck? Also did they give you any update as to delivery? Just wondering. I hope they don't just call me when the trucks sitting on there lot.

I watched the race too. I like circles better than road courses.

I have never ordered a new truck. Heck....a steak dinner might be the most expensive thing I have ever ordered!

Keep us posted on the build and do post pictures when you get her. I'd love to see the "window sticker".

My dealer told me to call him on Wednesday afternoons that's when he gets reports on what is coming in when. About a week after ordering they called and gave me a build week date. It is suppose to be built the we of July 9th but he said sometimes that gets move foward or back.

Webslinger1977, I ordered mine on June 5th. I haven't heard from them yet. That's why I was asking if it's reasonable to expect them to have let me know any updates on delivery.

I told them to call when they got a build date and they did. He also made the mistake of telling me I could call him when ever I wanted he didn't mind. I ordered mine June 2nd.
I've had to stop myself from calling him daily to ask if it's here yet. Call Them

I would have had mine ordered June 2 also if I didn't have to go over the order 3 times. I had to make sure nothing got missed. Thanks for info, I'll call them

when we purchased our 2011 explorer from dealer 1 they sent us emails with updates when it would be started, and when it was "born" they sent us the vin # and told us it would be there in 2-3 weeks. our 2012 f450 we ordered from dealer 2 and got no updates what so ever. so it just depends. all of our trucks our ordered because you usually cant find regular cabs with chrome package and nicer features other than a base model.

I ordered a 2012. I had wanted the 2013 with the new center console, but my dealer checked and they would not be available for delivery until late November at the earliest. I couldn't wait that long. I'm not sure my 6.0 could wait that long lol. In 1999 I had ordered a 2000 F250 cc with V10, loved that truck. Gas started killing me so I bought the 6.0. Funny thing is the 6.0 is now killing me. Anyway the dealer didn't contact me then either. They just called me after 8 weeks to tell me they had it. Interesting thing was I was out of town and they told me I had 48 hours to pick it up or they would have to buy it from the factory and they could sell it. Luckily I got there.
