I was lucky to get invited in the most recent April wave to order and got saddled with a dealer charging $7500 adm. After shopping around I found another dealer with a more reasonable fee structure. What was interesting was I changed my dealer and was able to successfully place an order for it and got confirmed by the dealer today.
For those who want to switch dealers, I was able to successfully do this and keep my allocation. Although the dealer I'm working with now did need to reach out to their Ford rep.
Wanted to keep people aware of the process as I'm sure others would want to do the same.
I did get stuck with errors on Ford's website to start but it worked out.
