I feel like I'm missing something obvious here. Are we not able to make an order at any dealership (allocated or not) for a Raptor R and then just wait for the build. Are we only able to purchase one provided to an allocated dealership and only then if we're lucky enough to be #1 out of 500 on a waiting list?? Is everyone here who received notice of their Raptor R scheduled for production the #1's of the 500 who are on these crazy lists?? What am I missing? Or are the dealers all lying to me and I should be able to place a "factory order" not a dealer allocated order?? Any input is appreciated. Thank you.
