Trucks originally schedule the week of 8/21, ran down the line during the week of 8/28, all should have an IN PRODUCTION flag date, and a few may even show a BUILT date, but all trucks in production since 7/31, upwards of 11, 832 trucks are awaiting a BUILT date and an approval to ship.

Share your VIN on the public order tracker or DM me if you want to stay private, I can look it up to confirm hat your truck is likely the same status as others for that week.
Thanks for your help, I added my info to the tracker. Let me know what you find out. Thanks!

Great, I will look at it in a couple days, ADMIN only runs the new request approval process weekly, so I can't see it yet.

Hey my truck went into production 2 days earlier and it isn't done yet.... that's not fair.
</Sarcastic Whining>

Congrats on movement! Hopefully it really means some of these are going to be delivered soon!

I'm in Detroit area... so my shipping time should be minimal. Assuming I'm not caught in a battery replacement/repair I should be able to make up some time... not that it's a race. Still waiting on built status anyways

Your truck will be at the dealers lot before the trackers have had time to fully update, key date for you is BUILT status

Spoke to a guy at my dealer yesterday (9/21). He confirmed that my truck is built and is marked (in transit) but he is able to tell it is still sitting on the lot at the factory. He told me that the truckers are not crossing the picket line in solidarity with the union workers so he made it seem like there wont be any shipments (at least not at a large scale) until the strike is resolved. Not sure if any of this is new or accurate info but for the sake of conversation...

Interesting that there were trucks marked โ€œbuiltโ€ that were not only in production after mine, but ordered 2 months after me. Iโ€™ll enclose my window sticker details.
Itโ€™s a Lariat SR with no bedliner. Iโ€™m curious about their sequencing. Maybe they are giving priority to ER models? Or is it the color? This whole process is giving me a whole new perspective on patience.

I noted this as well. Seems very unfair to me. Why should people that order after us get their trucks built and delivered weeks or months ahead?
