any delays on 250's

I ordered a new 250 lariat 6.2 s.c. s.b. 4.30 on 2/3/15. So far no vin dealer says order was accepted but delayed because of part shortage.Has anyone else heard anything ?

Don't know your dealer, but it sounds like he does not have allocation, and his priority code was low. I'm betting you'll be forced into a 2016 AND the price increase. Shame on your dealer!

I ordered it from the ford dealer in sauk city Wisconsin. If they don't deliver in about 3 more weeks as promised (about 8 total) they will loose my business. This is the 3rd 250 I've ordered seems like 6 weeks was the norm.

Yes but 4.30 axle shortages make a huge difference.

Hey northman. I'm in Verona and I ordered from Middleton Ford. After almost 7 weeks of "nothing this week" I cancelled and ordered from Scott at Fowlerville. He had it in production in 16 days. Don't know about doing that with the 4.30 rearend but it is worth the drive. That 400 miles was a great break in. For whatever reason dealers around southern WI just don't seem to have allocation to get the Super Duty's.

Oh and Scott keeps you updated. My ex-dealer told me they only get updates once a week. Scott told me they come in twice a day. To many LAZY dealers out there.

I may have to drive to Fowlerville for the next truck. The message from blwnsmoke about a shortage on 4.30 gears could be what the dealer was referring to. A parts shortage I can be a little more forgiving as long as I can be driving it by mid April.

Scott posted last week that 2015 orders are now closed and any order needs to be a 2016.
