I think they are making a MOD top in white, or did I miss something along the way?
That is what they said, just not sure if they will actually do it. I would prefer to get the white top from the factory, but I'm not going to wait several years for it.

The original picture just needs some gloss black steelies, and if you really want to be fussy, get yourself some glass black fender flares.

Spotted in the wild (scroll down to see it). This is the one and only 4 door painted mod top we‘ve seen. The only other painted mod top seen was on the 2 door shadow black Badlands from last year, first seen at Super Cel West.

Here’s the pics when we first saw this inside MAP.

Yep, I definitely like the MIC better. The black is too shiny for me and the glossy black combined with the glossy paint just feels... gaudy? Might look better on a Shadow Black Bronco but I'm guessing the body-color-matched and white tops will look much better than this.

That is supposed to look better than the gloss black hard top?!

😂
I don't personally like it. But if someone wants a gloss top I think color matched looks better than gloss black. There is so much matte black on the vehicle that introducing a gloss black doesn't seem to work. As others have said, possibly with a gloss grill and wheels it would be good. But the only other gloss finish on most Broncos is the body paint.

This would look amazing with gloss black wheels and grill and anything other than the gray fender flares (so really just the OBX), but with the gray flares this looks terrible.

Aren't the fender flares going to be covered in mud anyway? There seems to be a lot of fussy complaining about color matching coming from a group of off-roaders who bash other people for worrying about MPGs and the (small) size of the Bronco.

In fairness, tree branches are up top, but low brush certainly exists.
Only up top? What are you on groomed trails or something?

It's not that I hate the Black MOD top, as it was originally my first pic if available. But after seeing these pics, I think I'll be just fine with the MIC on my Lightning Blue FE. In my opinion the MIC Gray has a more rugged look, which I prefer.

Nope. Sorry. Everything’s a question of personal taste but this looks awful to me. Maybe we need to see it on a Wildtrak with the glossy grill and all. 🤷🏼‍♂️
