I saw no posts in this section and figured I would throw an initial post out.

As we start seeing updates on build and production status, I'm sure folks have to be getting even more excited!

Ours is set to be built this coming week 5/16 and I'm looking forward to keeping tabs on the truck build this week.

Hopefully we will hear more about production status, shipping and anticipated delivery dates for the first few waves soon.

My XLT SR is scheduled for Production on 5/16, tomorrow from time of post, with a Blend date of 5/21. Hoping to see things start moving and would be over the moon if I could get my truck around Fathers Day.

Im in the St. Louis area, on the Illinois side of the river, and the only order for my small dealership. I know of only 3 other orders from other dealerships in my immediate area so hopeful to meet them as we are among a rare group in the area.

Posting from Chicago suburbs. I got a lucky 6th wave invite having reserved in July 2021. Placed an order for a Lariat ER. No production date yet so I'm hoping it's not too long of a wait.

I can wait though as I believe illinois is doing a $4k rebate starting July 1st
I am writing an article for the Detroit Free Press about the Lightning and early buyers - would you be willing to talk to me about what you ordered and why you want to get it as an early adopter? If so, please email: [email protected].

Correct as of July 1st there is a 4k Tax rebate for BEVs purchased in Illinois. Ive been told that even if you purchase prior to the July 1st start date Illinois will honor the tax credit/rebate since it will be applied to your tax filing in 2023.
