Im in TN and the black cloth interior in my Veloster N is smoking hot in the summer with Llumar ceramic tint and a Covercraft windshield cover. Of course TN is like walking through a bowl of hot tomato soup from May-Sept.
I don't know that brand, but I wonder if it's a humidity thing? Moist air is better at conducting heat.. I was stationed in North Carolina. I know what you mean about the humidity. It's a killer.

Awesome ride. Just picked up the same spec except no tow package. Loving the black butI was second guessing it on the Bronco without seeing one in person. I've had mostly black vehicles in my life and thought I should change it up but couldnt pull the trigger on something different and glad I couldn't now. The Badlands grill and this black looks something fierce.
Haha same! I only drive black cars but was also thinking of going Cactus Gray or Antimatter Blue but couldn’t pull the trigger either. If you like the black in the photos, you’ll like it even more in person.

Very nice! How is it for your daughter to get into the ride?

I've got a Badlands Sasquatch on order, and wondering how my 8 year old son will do climbing into it, whether I need to install steps...
My daughter is 8 as well and she actually has no problem getting into it. The door sill protectors help so she can kinda used that as a step. I’m still getting steps though once Archetype Racing releases their “STIRRUPS”.

My Order Story

I originally selected a MOD top for my Bronco, but after hearing that the top was going to be delayed to 2023, I had a tough decision to make. I attended the Austin Off-Roadeo and had a chance to drive a Badlands with a soft top. I loved how easy it was to use whenever I felt like it. That, along with the news that Ford would include hard top prep kit made it easy for me to change my order to a soft top. Two weeks later (9/2/21) I got the “Scheduled for Production” email with a build week of 10/4/21. To my surprise, after about another three weeks (9/22/21), I got the email that my Bronco was built and on 9/24/21 I was notified that my Bronco had shipped! I was about two weeks ahead of schedule! My Bronco was finally delivered on 10/7/21 and I picked it up on 10/9/21. I was fortunate enough to purchase from an honest dealership for $1,000 under invoice.

So far, no rattling from the tailgate table that I've noticed.

Are the Rear Side Windows of the "Base" Soft top Removable? Does the Rear Window Fold up or can be removed as well?

Yes, rear sides and rear window can be removed. They also have to be removed if you want to fold the top all the way back.

So far they’re doing their job well. I love the look of the door sill plates you can get from Ford, but they don’t cover over the edge which kind of defeats the purpose. I like how these vinyl protectors cover over the edge. I chose the carbon fiber print because there’s some texture to it that I feel makes it more durable than the regular vinyl versions they also offer.
