I got one as well. Not sure prices are going to come down, another price increase has been rumored and this time for lariat and platinum models. I thought XLT was going to open back up in this wave but when I checked still not available. I've come this far and will likely order and kick the can down the road on a decision to purchase a $90K truck...also have a reservation for an R1T and with all the price increases two motor version mid size battery is coming in about $10K below Lariat ER...and just under the tax rebate..so who knows how this will all play out
Yep. I have an R1T reservation as well. But that has been only 6-8 months. F-150 was reserved back in 08/21

Order place for Lariat ER, Avalanche. Local dealers want $10k markup on in Stock. A dealer with 2022 Star White Metallic wants $5k over MSRP and is willing to negotiate. 2022 is still $2k less than the 2023 price.

Still a few months from delivery. Wondering what is the process of installing the Charge Station Pro Charger. Do I get it with the car? Can I use my electrician that installed my Tesla Charger to do the same? he only charged like $400 for installation before. Why spend more with Ford recommended installer. My car will be parked right next to my electrical box. Charging port will be within 6 feet from the electrical box

They won't ship it to you until you have completed the sale. You can buy one from Ford/Ebay ahead of time, and then sell yours when it shows up if you want to deal with all of that. Your electrician can certainly install this, the big challenge is that this is an 80 Amp charger, requiring a 100 Amp breaker, you may or may not be able to support this in your current panel, but your electrician will be able to tell you. You can always install with a lower capacity breaker and de-rate the charge station pro. You can also just get a Tesla Tap and use your Tesla Charger and not worry about any of it.

Unless you are driving 150 plus miles/day, you will rarely need the full 80 amp charger, and would be just fine with significantly less.
Thank you for the detail reply. My electrician is capable and will do whatever is recommended. Is getting a Tesla Adapter worth it. I might get it anyways. Will it charge well enough overnight. I do not drive more than 150 miles a day.
Any recommendations on Tesla Adapter?
