I received my built email last night so I thought I would post my timeline experience in case it will help others plan their expectations.

Ordered a Lariat with spray-in bedliner

  • Scheduled for production week of 5/9/22
  • Blend date of 5/13/22
  • Received "built email" from Ford on 5/27/22
  • ETA given in built email to dealership in CA is 7/1/22-7/7/22

I'm super excited and hopefully this info is helpful to others!

When was your blend date?
Not sure where to get the "blend" date. Had a build week of 05/09, then there was something showing 05/12, I assume the day it came off the line. The app appeared to connect (awaiting acceptance from the truck). 16 days later, the e-mail that it's built, going through final checks. Not shipped yet, but est delivery of 4-5 weeks was provided.

Date next to my Special Order number is 04/28/2022. If that's the "blend date". Only other date I can find on it.

In the B&W print top center left on the sticker I generated, mine has:
120220609
BLEND <--- under the 0609
I assume it means Job 1, Blend date 6/9/22. It's probably showing 5/12 there on your sticker.

I got 5/2 and 5/9 production dates, different on my order and reservation page versus the order tracking page. Blend date of 5/5 according to window sticker. No emails or changes to the website but I called my dealer yesterday and he said the predicted delivery date is 6/5. I am in Petaluma California.
Hopefully it arrives close to that date. I am very excited to be back in a truck.

I prefer to evaluate these initial releases from the BUILT date of 5/27, so only 35 days to reach the coast.

Hopefully future line production timing, to hold, to train/truck will be tighter as they clear the back log
