New Member who works at Ford

*Waiting for my Raptor. I work at the Stamping Plant that builds the panels for the F150. I worked my way around different dealers to get the MSRP. My order date was at the beginning of December. Hopefully the truck will be available around May, I can keep an eye on every move my order takes.

Welcome to the forums ! That's pretty darn cool to work with the plant that's making the F150. Any secrets you can tell us

No secrets, but I can go into the Ford Network to see the progress of my build. All the parts allocated to the truck will show by date. Scheduling Priority Code changed on 12/15/16 from 19 to 13. I don't expect my VIN yet though.

Fair enough, but it's still pretty cool that you can track it down to exactly what's going on. Will you be adding the new Raptor to your stable or will it be replacing another truck ?

I've been purchasing cars (all-wheel drive) for the last 10 years after having a couple pickups and three SUVs. I have a nice little summer car to have fun with, so the Raptor will be my everyday driver and winter vehicle (will finally have more vehicle storage room again). This will be replacing my 2016 Lincoln MKZ awd.

2014 Jaguar F-Type with 623 hp & 550 #ft/ torque. It's a fun convertible. If I can get a picture of it here, that's my car at the dealer.

Beautiful black and orange combination. You have an ultimate garage there my friend, Raptor for the winter and to commute around here and there. An F-Type to go out and have some fun.

Yes, Vehicles are nice, but my garage isn't deep enough to fit a Raptor that's almost 20 feet long. My garage is 20 feet deep by 31 feet wide now, but I'm getting estimates for a 10 foot addition to the back. Hopefully it will be completed in the Spring. With the delays of other buyers, I don't expect the truck until maybe May.

Have you started to consider what you'll do after taking delivery? I know most people aim to get some sort of paint protection done, and then some just entirely skip that and don't do anything aside from simple accessories like window tints. Keep us posted
