I call my dealer and all they tell me is that I’m the longest wait time they have seen. I’m seeing hard tops now so it can’t be that, can it? I reserved JULY 2020! Any advice is appreciated. I tried searching around but with no success.

Where were you at on their list, and what day in July did you reserve? I was a first evening reservation and just got mine last month, and know some guys with first week reservations who either haven't gotten a vin, or have been on a chip hold since January lol.

I am a July 23, 2020 reservation. Badlands non-SAS, soft top, 2.3L Manual transmission with no tow or mod bumper with High Package 4Door. I previewed once in February. That is the first and last tease that I have had.

Many of us still languishing from July, 2020. Wish you luck in getting yours soon.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure there is anyone on these forums will be able to provide you any real insight.

Based on the builds that people on these forums are posting that get picked for build, I don't really think commodities are the big limiter. Chips still seem to be a problem, but that's common across all trims and builds, so there isn't much you can do to mitigate it.

Your dealer's allocation and your place in line seem to be the biggest cause of delay. You can ask your dealer for your place in their line. They probably won't or can't tell you what their allocation is, but you can infer it if the dealer tells you how many they've delivered per month for the last couple. But that presupposes that Ford's able to pump out as many Broncos as they have been in Mar/Apr/May...

Yeah… as @tlowell01 (and others) mentioned… it’s basically impossible to provide you an accurate estimate. Ford themselves stopped providing estimates because the supply chains are just too messed up.

If you reserved week 1 (July 13th - July 21st, 2020)… there is a decent chance you will have a build date before the end of the year. But again, heavily dependent on dealer allocations, where you are in line at you dealer, supply chains, natural disasters, human-cause disasters, etc. etc.

If you dropped your hard top for a soft top, that’ll dramatically increase your chances at getting it sooner rather than later.

Good luck,hopefully soon. I have a the similar build and took delivery last November. Badlands SAS 4door with 2.7 auto and the mid package. I really think it just a roll of the dice.
I dropped Hard top and tow not sure if that helps

same boat. I reserved July 20, 2020 ... removed hard top from my order about 6-8 weeks ago, hoping it would help ... still no luck (4 door, badlands, sasquatch, 2.7, Luxe). I am really starting to believe that Mike Levine has had my order pushed to the back of the line because I give him so much crap on Twitter. I'm dead serious... I wouldn't be surprised. He's a tool.

Hang in there. My date details are in my signature. Avoid the negativity. I love my Bronco and I waited 610 days. Cancel towing if you don't need 7 pin.

I was July 21st. I actually did cancel toeing to see since I heard that could have delayed things a long time ago. I'm not negative but maybe thought that I got lost in the masses, haha.

Did you order towing? I think that is still a major delay.
Thank you so much for that. I heard that and canceled that about a year ago from the order to make sure since it was a nice-to-have feature for me. :) Appreciate you taking the time to help!

I was actually debating whether to go with a soft top but I keep seeing hard tops around now. You are ONE day ahead of me so will be curious to hear when you or I get something in email to suggest that ours is getting built. Keep me posted! haha

Last question for you... how do you know where you are on the list? I have a reservation ID and a Capitol Ford number but that's it so far.
