Hi Kitchener, Ontario here. Got my VIN but no other details about my order or build date yet. Dealer assures me early summer but I know from this forum that some of the June builds have been pushed out at least a month so I'm guessing August/September timeframe. XLT ER in Antimatter Blue.

Sorry everyone for the late introduction. I joined a while back, but haven't had much spare time. I'm semi retired, living in Cayuga Ontario.Formally a 2010 Ram owner which was an awesome truck I put 300000 klm before body rusted out bad.With the ridiculous gas prices as they are it was hard to justify another hemi ,but even harder to be content with a 6 banger .That's when I decided electric was the best of both worlds. The Rivian seems pretty good, but have an up hill battle competing against establishment companies. The new hummer would be nice but I missed the reservation .When I realised ford was still taking reservations for only a hundred bucks and it was refundable,I knew I had nothing to lose if I change my mind. The more I research the lightning, the more I wanted one.So I picked a dealership in a small town nearby which turned out to only have 9 reservations.My dealership contacted me and said unfortunately they were only getting 2 lightening on the first wave and they were already taken and I would have to wait until next wave ,but they had no idea when that would be. To my surprise, the first wave customer backed out and I have the first opportunity to buy it.It was close to my build but a few less options so I had a tuff decision to make. Well a bird in the hand is better than 2 in the bush.I'm now a privilege owner of a lariat ER carbonized gray.I'm using the 30 amp charger for now which charges fast enough for my requirements but the pro charger is on its way.So far the truck is living up to my expectations,and then some.

Etobicoke, ON - No VIN as of yet. Currently have a XLT ER on order, but i'm leaning towards the LARIAT. Would love to see one in person first (how the interior looks in real life) before i make that change. Currently driving a Tesla Model 3 (3.5 years) and the Lightning will make us an all electric family.

Platinum Black, Brantford ont. Dealer says truck on route, received his first two a week ago. so hoping soon. Tracking website (when I can get into it) says its still in order stage so that's crazy. Contact your deal for the true details.
Not holding my breath, will keep you posted

Campbellville ON. Took delivery of Star White Lariat ER with Max Trailer Tow package on June 23. Loving it! Had a faulty mobile charger but Ford replaced and followed up. Pro Charger works great. Still learning how to use all the technology.

Oh and I'm still waiting for my truck (Dealer was wrong when he said it was on its way, {my post from July 6th}) I believe it is built as I have a window sicker and a blend date. (says was to be built July 29th) Yet the useless FORD site still says "in production".
Maybe waiting on chips??? who knows, so I have the garage cleaned up and ready so I continue to wait, Drive by the dealership hoping to see it arriving on the back of the truck, check the website like 10-20 times a day for an update..... you know all the dumb stuff us men do when we are waiting for something. FRUSTRATING

Just visited my dealer. He showed me the release sent to him from ford saying all his orders that were not scheduled already are going to be MY23 conversions as soon as the order slots are available. I wonder what is going to happen since I have chosen Atlas Blue and have the max tow package.

you will have to choose a new colour when you convert from reservation to order - and will loose the max tow package due to chip shortages
