Default Ordering custom Ranger or other vehicle how to's

Good afternoon. Currently have a 99 ranger (78,000 miles) and am looking at the 2021's and because of where i live the landed cost from a dealer here is roughly 9k more than my build and with me cutting out the dealer i can save over 4k after shipping and taxes myself--location is St Croix US Virgin Islands

I have done the build and put in the zip of the area where it would have to be delivered to a freight forwarder and came up with one dealer but sure I can find other within a reasonable radius to keep delivery charges down.

Do the vehicles if the dealer does not have the exact configuration actually get delivered on a truck or are they driven to them--do not want anymore miles than necessary on it.

Exactly how does payment work and what is lead time? All upfront before order or how is it handled to get the order in and then do i rely on the dealer to do an honest inspection before accepting it and forwarding it to my transport company? Also if bought in Fla but it is leaving the state immediately would i also have to pay Fla sales tax? It would not need to be registered for the shipping company to accept it.

Thanks much,

Michael

These all sound like questions the dealer can easily answer.

Sure they could but I am not asking a dealer here nor am I going to call a dozen different ones without knowing some of the in and outs of how this works--but thanks for playing--

Who says you have to call a dozen dealers? Why are you making this so convoluted and complicated?

Well seeing as I live in the middle of the ocean and want to find out how the process works which i am assuming would be same there for how one goes about ordering a specific ride minus the shipping part. I am not convoluting (is that a word) anything but trying to get actual experience or info from anyone that has custom ordered a vehicle--it is not like I can just jump in the truck and drive nilly willy everywhere looking for exactly what I want and sure as hell not paying the dealer here 5-6k over what it would cost me to deal with it.
