    Alright, so the ETA was wrong. It arrived yesterday!! It literally took exactly a month. Went and picked it up last night. I haven't had an opportunity to dive in to the MFT and Sync just yet, so far I've driven it home and to work this morning. But so far, I love this thing! It's in a different universe than my 97 Mountaineer.

    Let me know how you like that Bronze color with the pecan interior. I ordered that same one on 4/8 and am still waiting on mine. Have fun with your new baby!

    XLT has been built (last week) and is currently "awaiting shipment". Doesn't seem to be a standard on how long it takes to ship once the build is complete. Fingers crossed I get the car July 4th weekend.

    muddlermike, you're giving me hope that I'll be getting some information soon! I ordered mine just 3 days after you! My dealer gave me my VIN last week, so crossing my fingers for a sticker and build date any day now.

    Good luck, and keep us posted on your turn-around!

    Cory - all I can be is patient :) really, the dealer gave me a 6-10 week window and it looks like it will be closer to the 6 week side, so I'm happy.

    PorterX - I hope yours moves just as fast! good luck.

    So I placed my order with my dealer on 5/31. XLT with 202a and the standard rims. Got a call yesterday from my dealer who tells me if I want to get a 2011 I have to go with the 20'" rims, which I really like anyways. Taking the possible price increase for a 2012 and the uncertain wait for production of those, I went with the 20" rim and should have it sometime in July.
    Not soon enough!!!

    I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to get to your message yet; my inbox has been a bit flooded lately, so I’ll be getting to each one as soon as I can. Thank you for your understanding!

    muddlermike, great! I also believe your online window sticker should be viewable:

    http://fordlabels.webview.biz/webviewhybrid/WindowSticker.aspx?vin=<insertvinhere>

    msr56, I can’t provide that information, but I’ll research your order and relay any available details to you!

    Well CincyJon, I was told first about 6 weeks, and then, no, I would fall within the 8 to 12 week waiting period. I sure hope it's not true that the 2011 will be bumped due to 2012 orders. I ordered on 4/9 and rounding up my 10th week since order date. I wish you luck, though. I also read somewhere the larger dealerships receive their orders before a smaller dealership, and I just happened to buy one from one of the smallest dealership here in Texas.

    I ordered mine from one of the bigger Ford Dealerships in Cincinnati because I thought that they would have more clout... Also, I thought I read on this forum somewhere that 2012 explorers will start rolling off the line in June/July so that tells me that if your 2011 is not built by now, its not going to get built unless you buy a 2012 and start the waiting process all over again.

    Well my build date was 5/20/11 and my EX has been sitting waiting for shipment ever since. I still do not have an ETA... Cory told me that it was "in transit," but i suspect that could mean that its still just waiting to be shipped.

    Not wanting to rain on your parade, rather just adjusting your expectations...
