I messed up.......

Two years ago I put a deposit down on a 22 Lightening Pro. My idea was to pair it with a industrial saw mill, and make a killing----and have a lot of fun----- in the forest. The 36 inch Norwood sawmill is together, on a trailer with a 10 hp motor.
Everyone on this site, and the dealer, say that a reservation, is kinda a wishy washy thing that they may do. Right now, they don't want to do it, but maybe later. Such crap! If someone on this site can help me force Ford to honor their written promise, I will be a lumberman. If not, make me an offer on a fantastic new sawmill.

I appreciated that post, but.......I want my truck at the advertised price. I will wait.....but not forever. Does anyone have an idea when they might start production again? And did the reservation roll over to the 23? If it rolled over to the 23, I can be much more patient. I haven't been able to get Ford, or the dealer, to answer that question.
A very limited number of reservations were given price protection on the Pros, but basically the initial introduction price of $39k etc is now about $55k. Also the $100 reservation certainly didn't keep a place in a first in first out line like one might logically expect, as could be seen by people getting to convert to an order when they had reserved after others still waiting. Basically dealers playing reindeer games with reservations.
this was clearly stated in T&Cs of the reservation - it was never going to be first in, first out…it shocks me people sign up for something without understanding what they are signing up for….! Read people…T&Cs are important.
I can't find the T&Cs, can you share how it said the reservation system would operate?
I did get this email on 12/20/22, ironically after I had cancelled my reservation. It seems like they are indicating that when the reservation was made has some bearing on the process?

"We’re excited to tell you that we expect that you will be invited to order your Ford F‑150 Lightning this winter. This estimation is based on multiple factors, including when you originally submitted your reservation, and is subject to change, but we will do our best to stay close to this timing"
