as far as people talking about the headliner shedding, are you running your hand over it to make it? If so, why?
That's why it pays to see for yourself instead of listening to internet "experts". Like so many things, shedding probably started by 1 person who didn't vacuum the residual fibers left from manufacturing. The usual suspects turned it into the whole thing is gonna fall apart.We have the headliner on ours. No shedding as reported elsewhere. We have had no rattles, leaks or shedding. Kind of hopeful that they will let us keep this one as a backup (I know wishful thinking!)
That makes more sense. If a socket was spinning against the paint, it would be worn in a circular pattern, not chipping as seen in the pic.Yep,
Painted surface...hard top bracket....bolt. Socket would never touch paint.
Paint is blemished from hard top bracket pulling it off.
Lol. You have no idea what Hothead's solution is for the Bronco. It will be different for sure.uhhhh i think most ppl were expecting fabric that doesn’t flake off everywhere when you touch it? “free” or not, they were once planning to charge folks around 500.00 for this option when there are companies like hothead who offer a far superior product for cheaper. if you’re happy with poor quality on an expensive vehicle, great, I’m sure Ford loves people like you, but don’t act like those of us who are rightfully questioning a quality issue are weird for not wanting a less than top quality product.
The mod top would be great but it won't be available for a while. The mic top cost from the factory is significantly cheaper than any other hardtop option, including buying them as an accessory later.True, but at least the softtop came at no additional cost. I plan to keep it when I buy a hardtop, maybe black modular in 23. Nice thing is we will have a few hardtop options over the next couple years. Curious to see the one with sliding windows, would do well when I car camp in bug infested areas.
It's just a notch out for the hook clamp of the Roof Rack. Couple of pics of the clamp off and attached.Congrats!
I hate to ask a stupid question, but I will anyway. On the MIC top, there are "slots" for the luggage rack. Do they go all the way through? i.e. Can I pass a strap through the "hole" to lift the top off?
People like me… the ones that don’t expect everything on a first year model to be perfect. Or someone that can vacuum a headliner when I get it. Or someone that realizes I’m buying a Ford off-road vehicle and not a luxury rover. Or someone that also realizes that buying a car virtually unseen by most, I don’t fall into this category, but there’s probably going to be a few things I don’t like about it at some point. Or someone that just doesn’t need something to complain about. Or someone that wants to compare what it comes with to something else that doesn’t exist yet for it(which I’m lazy and didn’t check but I’m assuming like everything else for it the aftermarket headliner doesn’t exist, but sure I’m sure it’s better even if it does exist no one has actually seen it in person). Or someone that at this point wonders how many people are complaining about it that got it for free. I’m sure Ford does appreciate someone like me that realizes what I actually bought, knows it’s not a luxury cars, knows it won’t be perfect and that will probably have some features that people who own one will chalk it up to annoying character, but don’t care about that because all in all it’s a good looking vehicle that is better than the others in its field, or larger inside than it’s field, or whatever someone chooses to put more weight on than a possibly (some owners say there’s is fine) shedding, free headliner that wasn’t going to be great to begin with because like I stated, Jeep’s is junk also. For the record, most aftermarket anything is better than factory, if it wasn’t no one would buy aftermarket. But yeah……there are people who just need something to complain about.uhhhh i think most ppl were expecting fabric that doesn’t flake off everywhere when you touch it? “free” or not, they were once planning to charge folks around 500.00 for this option when there are companies like hothead who offer a far superior product for cheaper. if you’re happy with poor quality on an expensive vehicle, great, I’m sure Ford loves people like you, but don’t act like those of us who are rightfully questioning a quality issue are weird for not wanting a less than top quality product.
