Jumping on this train with VIN - 1FTVW1EV3NWG032XX. Lariat ER with Max Tow and AT tires added as the only two options.

I believe of the 6 or 7 weeks that were scheduled we are the last week of the group - May 23.

More interesting - I have one of the lowest VIN's published but one of the last of the several weeks to be built. I was in Wave 1 and ordered on Jan 10. I'm in TX.

yea I have a 04 number. That is interesting. Either it is random at some point or maybe the # of options?

Don't get me wrong - I'm OK being at the end of 6 or 7 weeks of solid production. Might get a couple of tweaks fixed if they are obvious. Just more of an observation. I updated my post, but added AT tires and the Max Tow Package.

Review this post below get your VIN. It isn't hard, but takes some digging. You open up the "Inspect" part of your web browser and dig through the web code that they don't show you. It is buried in there. I'm happy to answer questions now that I've found mine - but start here and if you don't find it ask questions in the thread where the post is and we'll help there. This is the thread: Tracking Your Truck Through Build and Delivery

What for? Do you want to insure the track when it's getting assembled?
The salesmen that I spoke with brought up that you get pictures of the build. So you definitely see where it is in the production line. It doesn't always work or at least in the case he gave me. One of their customers bought 2 cars. One was updated pretty regularly but the other vehicle, he didn't see any updates until it was at the dealership but the updates were of all the pictures from the assembly line and what not. It just didn't update until the vehicle was at the dealership.
If you have a scheduled build you can contact your dealer and ask for the VIN. They have it.

I ordered a Lariat ER, no max tow or other options, as part of Wave 3 on 2/3 and I'm not seeing a scheduled production date when I check my account. Are there others from the first few waves who have orders confirmed that haven't received scheduled dates? Just curious if there are still a lot of us from those waves waiting on dates or if I'm one of a few who haven't yet and need to check with my dealer or Ford? I've looked in some of the other threads on this topic and it's hard to tell if there are a lot of people still waiting.

I don't know if there are a lot, but there are definitely some Lariats from the first 3 waves that are not scheduled. There are several tracking spreadsheets, but not everyone comes back to update their data, so it is impossible to know how many were scheduled, but not all from those first waves were scheduled.

So does anyone else name their vehicles? Aside from my very first one (which I hated and don't remember if I did give it one) I've kept it going. Since getting the VIN and putting it in my Ford pass, I gave the future vehicle a name but I haven't locked that in. I usually want to see it in person first.

Thanks GDN, that's helpful. I'll check the tracking sheets and cross my fingers I get a prod. scheduled date soon.
