I've got a couple of thoughts. It's a total mistake. Ford threw it in there to get a reaction.What gets me and maybe I'm just lost is 4door has to come with a top? Right?
So how in the world are they adding $3000 for it. Soft top should be part of the base Badlands price of $44,590.

I like the gray as well. I think it looks great, and differentiates it from the jeeps out there. The BB has a gray grill, will likely look great together.I like the gray hardtop - fine with the color. I wouldn't care for gloss black. Maybe more of a semi/flat black hardtop as on my Jeep would be ok. White looks cool, and while I wouldn't go that route, hoping Ford offers white because I'd like to see those driving around. Kind of a classic style.
I'm OK with grey....but whether its grey, pink, or chartreuse, the top, mirrors, handles, grill, & flares should coordinate. Having a grey top contrast with other black trim pieces kinda precludes adding an accent strips or anything else.I like the gray as well.

So far from what we know you're gonna have to go aftermarket for a soft top on the 2-door unless something changes.
These guys just bought this low mileage 1 owner Jeep and this is what the roof looks like. Not sure if this is the same material Bronco will have.My take on painted tops. Painted to match looks the best. That said I would never do a painted top. Think of how carefully you will have to handle the top so it is not scratched. It makes removing, installing and storage a nightmare. A black/gray top if it gets scratched you can touch it up with a rattle can.
I'm not an expert here as I only detailed and restored cars for a decade, and that devolved into boutique detailing for select clients long ago (customers are the worst!)keeping black plastic looking black is a nightmare. I feel like I go through more of that meguars ultimate black more than any other cleaner
