iconic silver is going to be awesome!

IMPO plasti-dip is the ultimate lipstick on a PIG. However, this is a personal choice and I’m not into bashing others choices, it’s just not for me. I’m certainly not going to buy a new vehicle and then paint the top to “fix it”. I’ve far to much product development in me to accept that.

Unfortunately the gray mic top is a non-starter for me, so unless Ford marches the other black trims to the mic top or vice versa I’ll be forced into the modular. That’s fine with me it is what it is.

I’ll say it again.....iconic silver with a proper black top, windows & wheels is going to be rad. 🤘
If we don't get a white top option the Iconic Silver is now in my color choices. I'm not a silver car fan but that silver hits just right.

Anyone else get a little excited watching the hard working folks learning to put these Broncos together? It's a process, and the process is making progress towards us parking one in the driveway!! Yay for that!

Ya, I’m eager to see / learn more per the pending color options info. My current truck is mostly silver so I’ve been considering other color options to switch it up. However, the recent photos of the Iconic silver look awesome. Plus it’s bloody hot here and the trials are occasional pretty tight, so silver is always a practical choice. 👍

Wow, didn’t catch on to the standard top being grey until now. Probably looked cool in renders to the designers but in those pictures looks really bad.

looking at paint choices - would any of them not look either mismatched (grey with different grey top) or 5 years old straight out of the factory? I’m not seeing one. Guess top upgrades are not really an “option” then.

I’ll take gray over black all day.

I just figured out why I don't like the roofs on these Broncos. Those gray roofs look like they are supposed to be black but are sun faded. I like gray as a color in general and I am leaning heavily towards cactus gray as my choice but I don't like sun faded anything on a car/truck. Those gray roofs look like they are 15 years old sitting out in the driveway uncovered. I need more pictures to get over this.

I can't wait to get this truck.
I agree, honestly I’d like to see the top match the paint color, that or the painted black top.

Jesus Christ on a pogo stick .. stop your bitching about the gray fucking top. We're already getting delayed because a handful of whiners felt the only 'manly' option was a manual transmission in the sasquatch. Now we've got a bunch of crybabies bitching about the color of the top. pay for the fucking upgrade and be done with it. I think the molded in gray is fine - it goes with all the colors - and will be much better than a black top (which would be a huge solar panel for everyone who lives anywhere the sun shines and make the interior hot as hell in the summer)... and white is too stark of a contrast ... gray is a great compromise..

freaking relax. If you jack wagons cause another freaking delay because you're crying about the roof color, I'm gonna lose my shit.

Fair enough. If they don't end up offering a white top will you paint it?
Ive seen how painting the jeep tops looks worse, so we’d probably just go with the body colored painted top and wrap it white. 2nd option would be to pre-arrange and find someone ordering a white 4dr, have them order a white painted matched top And they want the actual gray top off ours. Trade the gray top and $$$.

probably easier to just get painted top and wrap it.

For those hating on Line-X... I found these photos on one of the Jeep forums. It looks almost identical to the factory black hard top on my Jeep except it won't chip and turn white. The guy that posted them said it increased weight by about 20 pounds total and that was with spraying the inside as well on the four door.

Best thing about this is that you don't have to do it. It's just an option for those that like the durability of MIC, but hate the gray. There are more photos here.

Any notion of how much this job was? I am totally doing this if I get that gray top and I don't like it/can't live with it. Just went to your link and the guy said it was $1300. Isn't the upgraded factory top $1600. Well, its a $300 savings, I guess. And I think the Line-X looks good. Rugged. Thanks for posting. Anyone with any knowledge of this stuff please educate the ignorant (ME). Wouldn't mind getting the fenders and bumpers done too. I know someone criticized the look as being overdone but was isn't overdone in 2020. 4x4's are overdone for crying out loud.

Not true. The only delay is for folks who want a mansquatch. The rest of us getting autos have the same timeline.

Black Molded in color would be better than painted black because it’s lighter and cheaper.

I'd much rather have gray molded in color than black molded in color. because of looks and temps

Well part of the cost depends on how much of the actual Line-X is being used. I would imagine you don't have to coat the underside so that would cut cost and weight, and if you have a two door it should also cost less. Also, because of the higher belt line on the Bronco's compared to Jeeps I think the tops themselves may be smaller.

You may be able to get a ballpark idea on cost if you call your local Line-X shop and get a quote to coat a JL top. I am sure the total cost will be similar.
