Unfortunately, we are all learning more about the tops design, materials, construction, and manufacturing process than should be necessary. I think Ford and Webasto is close and should eventually get it right with enough time and updates.

I’m starting to believe that having to wait 3 year to get my Bronco is quite fortunate. Perhaps by then, they will work out the bugs. But, most likely not. I guess we are all enablers: standing in line to give them our money no matter what they produce. There really isn’t any incentive for them to get their act together…..
At this point I’m seriously considering 99’ing my order to ensure I get a 2023.

Owning them, which involves writing that check every month. I don’t mind paying for items that are quality, not so much for items that aren’t.

1) All of like 2% of what you're paying is for the roof?
2) The roof works (at least mine does) perfectly. So what if some of the edges look a bit rough? The vehicle is rugged, it's supposed to be rugged, you're buying it because it's rugged and looks rugged.

Not everyone can be convinced that crappy = rugged.

So....how long until we actually see a legitimate aftermarket hardtop for sale and how much should we expect to pay?

Those rough edges begin to separate I guess you haven’t been keeping up with all the info if you like shitty tops so much than have ford give you a 1.9 mic top that was thrown in the trash at the plant

Updated photo from this AM. My hands aren't Samsquatch in real life, that's just the zoom level. You can see the fuzzy look on the edge, and that wasn't there when I picked it up 5 days ago. You REALLY have to be looking for it though.

Bad news, folks. This is a MIC 2.0 top built 10/1, delivered 4 days ago.

Top looked excellent at pickup. Did not notice any issues.. 4 days later, I notice I can see the old issue returning. Have not notified Ford yet.

Check your MIC tops CLOSELY on the rearmost panel by the windows. Appears to be pulling apart a bit.

I'll have a lot more photos and any other misc info coming shortly.



There is also slight honeycombing.

Edited for brevity.

Thank you. Same situation here. It is oddly getting worse.

"Begin to separate" is a strong way to describe it. And, I already have a top...so I know exactly what it looks like.

They won't look or work well after a few months of water and freezing temps or water and humidity unfortunately. Having dealt with jeep hard tops for years I can tell you it becomes a nightmare to accept leaks and water collecting on floor day to day. The musty smell gets old.

I think with some plastidip, some sounds deadening material, and a little work, the tops will work out.......maybe.
