Not sure if this was ever asked but is it possible there will be a hard top model? Meaning a fixed/non removable roof.

It seems unlikely (for the big bronco) since that'd require separate body stamps etc. I dont plan to ever remove the hard top so I'd love that option but it seems unlikely.

When Ford spent a boat load of Money to Rival Jeep Wrangler in ever aspect trying to create a Superior Product, why would they give a Brownie Point to Jeep and lose new Buyers?

I want a Hard Top as well but at least those few days when the Temp hits between 80-90 in New England Area I could remove it, otherwise I would never remove it.

I dont think any Jeep Wrangler has a permanent hard top, or if there is an option I've never seen it. For me, not removing the top isnt just about the outside temps. Here in CO the UV is pretty bad so having the top off would be quite uncomfortable. There's also the dust which is significant here, and the rain or hail that can come out of nowhere up in the mountains. It just wouldnt be worth the hassle for me. I'd rather just have a permanent hard top (and possibly higher roof rack capacity as a result).

May be someone should start a Petition for a Hard Top - Colorado Edition and be done with it, Hope Ford listens.

My concern is with the roof leaking -- a problem a buddy's Wrangler has.

Maryland gets some fierce storms with two inches of rain in 20 minutes.

I'm hoping they're just built better. But I fear that eventually the rubber seals will begin to break down and not seal properly. Not an issue with a permanent roof but that likely will be a maintenance issue at some point on these. The clamps could get lose over time too, not sure how easy those will be to adjust.
