YES,Definitely worth the wait.

Hang in with me for a bit, there may be something in here that may help you. I ordered a 15 Lariat 4x2 on 4/9. Went to production and was awaiting shipment on 5/15 and in transit 5/16. Pretty good huh. Was thinkin I'll have her really quick. A month later still no truck, on 6/22 my wife and I went to the dealership and found a truck there that was 6000 vin#'s after mine,WTF. How did this one get here before mine. I checked the track and found out that this truck got of the line and week after mine. So how come it's at the dealership. Where's mine. Suspicious, I did some research through the forums, got help from Blwnsmoke who found out that there was some issue with my truck. His contacts said to walk away from this one.
On 6/24 I told the dealer that I would not accept the truck and asked them to reorder. On 6/26 my original order came in and the dealer asked that I come look at it. I told them I would but I still would not take it. My wife found a King Ranch,Bronze Fire/Caribou 4x4 Dark interior, that the dealer had coming in for stock, I asked them if I could have this one, if not then they could give back my 57 k. They gave me a quote and I told them to mark it sold. Time to wait again. On 7/11 she came in and I took her home that evening. Worth the wait, awesome truck.
Great color, smooth ride, bich N acceleration, really awesome truck. Glad I made the decision not to take the first one and get this upgrade.

Lessons Learned:
When you order, get a order confirmation sheet from the dealer. You can check your order to make sure the dealer got it right.
Use the Ford tracker, it works, you just have to let it load up all the way before you put in your numbers.
There are 5 stages on the tracker, each one states how long it should take.
When you truck goes into transit, ask your dealer for the rail company and the rail car number. IFFFFF they give you this you can track it by rail, if not then use the tracker to monitor the timeline. If it goes pass the time then you should look into it. See pix below of the red truck I refuse and of the Bronze Fire that I got.

Special thanks to Blwnsmoke and Ontario Trucker (Gerry) who gave me lots of help and support. You guys rock.

LOL.. there is just no comparison between your original one and the KR that you got!!

Congrats on the KR!!! Although I have NO regrets on my Platinum, I LOVE the two tone with the Bronze Fire. My wife would absolutely kill me but I may just have to have the Caribou painted on at some point.

I'm glad everything worked out for you!!!

Congrats again.

Thanks guys, my dealer has a Caribou truck on the lot. Nice truck, came with TOYO's on it from the factory. This is the truck that came off the line after mine but got to the dealer about 3 weeks ahead of my original order. This truck kinda triggered the whole chain of events that lead me to getting the KR.
