Just after 2:00pm on Friday before the Memorial Day weekend, Ford sent the above email to those with new Ford Broncos on order. It says nothing of value, really. It says they’re having issues. It is written in a rather casual manner, as if it was a known fact to those who have ordered. And they’re not wrong.

Reading it, one can almost hear the joint frustration and anger of the people responsible for this vehicle. No one wanted it to be this way and I am certain everyone did whatever they could to make the production schedule. It’s a crazy world we’re living in.

I emailed my dealer to see what would happen to my order if I opted for a soft top. In the mean time, there is the RC Bronco.
