I ordered my SD 4x4 V-10 in April, and it was on the lot of my dealer on June 19th.
I would ask the dealer if he can get you a VIN. If he can, they are going to (have)
build it.

Good Luck,
Chad

The SD 550 is a pickup, empty, 2400 RPM's 65 MPH weight 8700 lbs. I once
grossed 23750 and still got 8 MPG. I had a chevy 6.5 and drove it the sme
and got 16 loaded or empty. I don't think my driving is the problem. 2400
RPM with cruise on should do better than 8 MPG.

Bob says he gets only 8 mpg with his F-550 PSD. 
Bob, what are you towing?
It's gotta be a heavy trailer or you have to be driving awfully fast.
