If we have received a production date, does that take into account parts for the build and will be be safe from supply chain issues? Or, are they just estimating that they will have the parts on hand for our scheduled build?

Yes it should - that doesn't mean there couldn't be some unforeseen day-of delivery issue (I recall there was news posted a few weeks back of the plant having to close for a day due to a late delivery), but outside of those sorts of issues all parts for your build are considered procured at this point, as I understand it.

Yes, unless no. I had a scheduled date, which was dropped during the recent hoopla. No idea why.

Yes per ford's statement before pulling the first models for production they would only schedule retail trucks that they already had all parts for that means all. Paint, engines, chips etc.
