Yeah, but a year from now, and two or three years from now, you'll be glad you ordered exactly the truck you wanted with only the options you were willing to pay for. And the time will pass quickly. 23 May order date, probably delivery date before 23 July and maybe as early as right after the July 4th weekend.

We'll be pulling our Casita to the North Carolina mountains for two weeks in June; wish we were going in a brand new F150 Ecoboost.

The hardest thing is waiting....

When I ordered my 14' Tundra, they said 4-5 weeks. Ended up taking close to 10...At one point they "lost the truck" When the dealer GM called and started stuttering I knew something was up....At the time really didn't need the truck (Oct - early Jan.) but ended up with some free-bee's...I sure use my 6-1/2' bed. In the last two months have filled the bed 5-6 times with enough stuff I had to use ratchet straps.

I got my Ram in exactly 6 weeks from order. Some on the Cummins forum have said they got assembly completed notice in 9 days from order.

There has been some talk about the next generation aluminum F150 Ford truck.

Ford will continue making the F150 for a while, as their one factory is shortly going to be taken down for retooling to the new truck. Their other F150 factory will not be taken down for retooling until the aluminum F150 factory is completed and in full production.

For awhile, Ford will be building two F150's and a SuperDuty line of trucks that's expected to take up some of the slack while only one F150 factory's running.

Ford lives and dies by their retail sales market penetration of the F150, their very profitable line of vehicles. That's where they make all the money.

And the new F150 is going to be a game changer in every way. Ford's not just buying the equipment to build the aluminum trucks. They're also having to invent production metal working machiney because nobody has ever made aluminum bodies in such mass numbers.
