    Hey all!

    Has anyone waiting to receive an allocation had it fall through or have the production date get pushed back recently (potentially due to chip/material shortage)? Toyota’s manufacturing process includes excellent controls to eliminate supply chain issues but we’re not living in normal times currently.

    My truck was originally scheduled to be produced yesterday but was pushed right, to tomorrow a couple of weeks ago. Heard that about another 100k vehicles (other manufacturers) were CNX’d from material shortages and I’m interested to see if my truck actually gets built or not.

    None here, mine is supposed to be delivered in 3 weeks. Is there a website you are using to track by any chance? I was told that there are no more orders being taken for 2021s nationally.

    Only thing I’ve heard to do is to plug the pre-production VIN into Toyota’s VIN decoder (https://www.toyota.com/owners/my-vehicle/vehicle-specification) and once it ACTUALLY goes into production, it will no longer appear in that search because it gets its actual VIN. Haven’t heard of another way to track yet.

    mine was due to be built today, and now this site says it can't be found. Today when I asked my dealer for an update, they said check back on Friday.

    That’s good news. If I understand correctly, that means it’s being built.

    Again, I feel like I should state that I’m no expert, but from my UNDERSTANDING on how the preproduction VIN’s work, I’d say it’s still waiting to be built. Seems odd though since it was allocated all the way back in May. Your dealer should be able to get the build date.

    Attached is what mine currently shows. Mine is supposed to be built today or tomorrow IIRC so it should “disappear” once the permanent VIN is assigned after production.

    I order mine 7/13 and got a call today from the dealer for an expected delivery date of 10/11. No holding my breath but at least its being built.

    That’s about 2 weeks before I “ordered” mine and we’re anticipating sometime around the end of OCT, so that makes sense. What state?

    I put down my deposit on 7/31
    Build date was estimated for 9/7 or 9/8
    temporary vin number no longer returns specs
    dealer estimates delivery around 9/30, but no guarantees.

    Keeping my fingers crossed

    That’s almost exactly my timeline as well. Hopefully my VIN disappears today or tomorrow.

    Is this what happened to your pre-pro VIN?

    651846633(1).jpg My pre production VIN had a letter in the last six positions. Post production VIN wasn't even close and contained all numbers in the last six slots.
    Mine was scheduled and built August 27th and on August 28th my dealer sent me a text with a picture of their computer screen stating the truck was on a railcar due at the dealer between September 13th and 20th. It's to have the spray in bed liner, remote locking tailgate and mats installed at port.

    Dealer texted me just now with an actual VIN so I guess all is moving as planned!

    my dealer texted me today with my REAL VIN number, and it appears in the searchlink just like the spec sheet. Truck was built 9/7-9/8, and is scheduled to arrive at the dealer around 9/30/21. I sure hope so! I can't wait.

    Good news Mike. I'm waiting on the phone call that says mine is ready to be picked up. Should be next week if their estimate is correct.

    Build date - week of August 9th, Arrived in Montana September 8th. Should be picking it up next week. This is ahead of the predicted time but I think they don't over promise. Now the spending begins....

    That's a pleasant variance of the norm. I learned long ago to give the customer the worst case scenario and when the project was completed earlier you became a hero.

    That’s fantastic! Sounds like our trucks were built on the assembly line close to each other!

    Did everyone’s preproduction VIN change the day it was supposed to be built? Mine is scheduled for tomorrow, so just wondering how long it will be until my VIN changes?

    mine did. After a couple of days, I was able to get a vin from my dealer. According to something I read, a Tundra takes about 21 hours to build, from rolled steel to rolling off the assembly line ready to ship.
