Hearne is near waco, seems like it has to pass Austin to get to SA exciting stuff I wonder if it went thru Alliance rail yard last night as well.
I think it would be very interesting to know the routing. Pretty sure the train stopped in Dallas last night. Can't imagine its going from SA to Houston...maybe, but I would think there are enough destined for Houston to get their own routing.

Studying BNSF rail system Alliance and Houston are their 2 main terminals in Texas.

There was a 4 door Black Diamond Sasquatch at Autonation Fort Worth (by community college) this morning. Not sure if it was a mannequin or not.

Yup...Skwach has arrived. Just in time to get his first TX bath in a 'heavens opened' rain storm. Last info the dealer had was Friday when the Ford shipping tracker showed that the train had reach Kirby (SA rail station). Then, the Bronco just suddenly appeared on the lot this morning.

Observations so far:
Dealership - Can't say enough good about Covert. Sales staff was amazing (Josh), Accessories and Delivery (Sam)...could not have gone better at the dealership.
Public Reaction - People were literally slamming on their brakes on US183 to stop and take a look. Amazing how much people want this truck. Caution...cops pay a LOT of attention! :) (made a couple of new friends)
Quality - Some typical issues, but I don't see any big gotchas. Because I got totally dumped on with an insane rain event on my way home, I can say no leaks or immediate concerns about the storm proofing of the hard top. The hard top doesn't show any delam or obvious issues.
Driving it - A M A Z I N G....being a long term Wrangler driver, it is night and day. Definitely driving a truck, but a truck that is well dialed in and even with the big Skwach tires, feel planted and no crazy roll in corners. Steering and turning is excellent in parking lot conditions and the cameras make getting around tight spots simple and easy.

Other questions...
The tires (GY Territory MT) show as 35psi max pressure on GY's site, and the door sticker says 39psi max. The tires are way overinflated from the factory and have had to bring them down to <40. Waiting to hear an official stance about GY's max of 35 vs Ford's 39.

FordPass and Tech setup was crazy simple and maybe I have uneducated ears, but the B&O setup sounds great, with good range and bass response. Definitely equal to the Harman high end setup in my M4.

Will post more pics once the weather breaks a bit...don't want TX hail damage on day one
