Part # VM2DZ54500W00C
2 Door Ford Accessories Bronco 2Dr 2021 Soft Canvas Bimini Top ~ VM2DZ54500W00C (ford.com)

Current Price $ 288.15

It's a Bestop product and I can only assume that it is the same as shown on the 2022 B & P.
I installed it with the back shell on ( because you can ) , so there are not completed exterior pics. Because Bestop made provisions for MIC front panel clamp access, the bimini can be left in place.

So why install with the back shell in place ?

There is a Mid Bow Bar located where the Front panels and back shell meet. If I can secure the bimini back to this point, then, when needed, I have a simple coverup option when I run with the Front panels off.

Thanks for posting!

How quickly can you install? (Say you are driving around with the top off and it starts raining?

How much does it flap when driving?

So this is the only points where the Bimini is fixed so to frame. Part of the install is to attach a strap to the lower mounting bolt of the rear speaker ( shown ).

Other than rethreading these two straps, there is the following:
4 Rear roll bar clips ( easy- into the trim gap )
Pop Mid bar into the brackets
2 Side hooks on roll bar
2 clips into the front panel latches
2 snap clips on the front quarter turn latches

So 5 minutes- less if you can just roll is up on the back roll bar.

Top view of mounting point of Mid Bar bracket before and after install. This is where the back of the front panel latches. Gasket shown is the leading edge of the back shell

From your pics I can't really tell: is there a gap between the windshield frame and where the canvas top starts at the front?

No where does it show being able to roll it back to the mid bar ( start of the rear shell ). Put we're going to put that one to the test.

I notice there is space on the sides between sport bar and the top canvas. Is it large or do you think it will adequately stop the rain, so as to not get passengers wet on the arms and shoulders?
