Nothing showed up in search but was wondering if anyone had found out their official timestamp for the Lightning . I had used this method that was posted on the Bronco forums and it worked for me but can't see the "Created" or in some browsers the line shows up as "Reservation" that you need to click on .

Find your official Bronco reservation timestamp :
1. Login to your account on Ford.com using the Chrome web browser.
2. Navigate to your Bronco reservation.
3. Hover the mouse cursor over this screen, then right-click and select "Inspect".
4. Select "Network" in the inspection pane that opens to the right.
5. Search in the "Filter" box for your reservation number.
6. Search for the line labeled "created:" or "Reservation:"
7. Make a note of your timestamp in Ford's system (listed in UTC).
8. Then search for a time zone converter to convert the UTC time stamp to your preferred time zone.

For example, to convert from UTC to CST...

On Firefox or Chrome you can replace step 3 above with pressing F12 on your keyboard as well.

I've created an image below to show what to do once you're on the network tab. Steps in the screenshot don't correspond to steps in the OP.

EDIT: I just realized there's a filter on the response tab (#4 in the image). So you can put reservationDate in the filter and it'll show the date.

This has been discussed before.

And, it doesn't provide any additional insights. as it's basically the same as the date you got the email confirmation.

Email: 5/19 - 6:48PM (PST)
API: 5/20 01:48 (UTC)

Same dates.

TL;'DR -- The reservation time I see on the website seems to be way more accurate than when I received the confirmation e-mail. Reservation 7:34PM the night of (CST) vs the e-mail at 9:36PM the night of.

The 7:34 time is accurate for me because I reserved a few mins into the countdown but before the presentation actually started. Believe the countdown on YouTube for the presentation to start, started right at 7:30PM Central. Could be wrong on this, it's been a billion months.

The website, for me at least, seems to be accurate. I hope this is the number Ford goes by and not the e-mail time.

I searched but guess I didn't use the correct terms to find anything . I ask because my Bronco reservation time is actually 2 hours before the email from Ford . My email from the Lightning shows May 19th at 8:35 PM and I was hitting the send button 2 minutes into the reveal so just would like to see if it is any earlier even by a couple minutes than the email .

For mine, as a I said above, my reservation time was almost 2 hours before the e-mail showed up. 2 hours and 2 minutes before the e-mail showed up to be precise. I hope they go by the reservation time on their site and not the e-mail time stamp.

- Thanks for sharing the above, I did not know about this until you posted.

Interesting. After inspecting the page, it says 5/20/2021 at 03:37UTC (05/19/2021 9:37pm CST) is my time stamp. I got my confirmation email from Ford on 5/19/2021 at 10:38pm CST so it looks like The email took an hour to get to me.

I blame public schools for this. 5/20/21 3:37 UTC is 5/19/21 9:37 PM CST. It is also 5/19/21 10:37 PM CDT. Since this was May, your email came at 5/19/21 10:38 PM CDT. The email did not take an hour.

So 5:58pm PST on 5/19/21 (PST)

Where can I determine where that puts me in the queue?

You ask your dealer. They have the info if they choose to disclose it. Mine wouldn’t tell me until after the priority list was submitted.

Talked to my dealer today.
They told me I'm number 17 out of 175. I was a little surprised I wasn't lower than that because my Ford email time stamp was 10:10pm est (about an hour after the unveil).
The sales manager said Ford was taking reservations as early as 12:00pm the day of the unveiling.

I think he means you're 17 out 175 just at your dealer, not 17th person in the whole list overall.

I’ve tried this on my MacBook Air but nothing happens when I enter my res number in the Filter pane. Anyone rose have this issue? Thanks!

I tried it on Chrome the other day. I couldn't find the line that was labeled created or reservation. I decided it wasn't that important after fooling with it for a few minutes. :)
