I agree!

The Side Mirror is designed to move With The Door as it's Opened & Closed!!!!!

I'm guessing they drew window framed doors to throw off people. Will be amazing when a frameless window door can be stored easily in the back.

well the spy photos looks like it has frameless widows. So roll the window down, remove door. It’s going to be a small panel. (18” x30”) or so???

That’s how I read it, via a “coupling” that is detacheable when you want to remove your ‘outer’ door skin. Sounds like this was thought out pretty well.

My thought on the roof.
IFFFFF the windows are frameless.
it LOOKS like the roof is in 6 sections.
1&2 T top over first row
3 rectangle top over 2nd row
4 square over rear area
5&6 rear window????
then the rear glass retracts into door.

that would make taking the top off SUPER easy. And take up very small amount of space in the garage.

that’s one thing wrangler people bitch about is how hard the hard top is to get off with even 2 people and storage takes up lots of room.

If that's the case then Wrangler people are a bunch of pansies!! (Start this by saying in MY YOUNGER days) I would always take the top off my '84, '93 & '94 by myself! It's all about how you use the spare to support it before you muscle it off!:like: Course now I'm a bit older and might need a little help. I'd still say give it to me in 1 piece. The more parts you have to dismantle, the longer it takes, and the more you open yourself up to leaks.

I've got like a half a day and a couple of hundred bucks in a winch system that'll remove either the top off of my Jeep or the camper shell off of my pickup.

Or pick up the mower for blade changes, unloading tools from the truck, or whatever else I can think of.

It's not a wildly unsolvable problem.

I haven’t done it yet but I’ve got the stuff to install a hand crank lift for my 82s top. Really simple stuff....don’t see the problems so many seem to have

Wife used to have a ‘15 2 door and what was most inconvenient for us was storing the hard top. Our garage is for my project cars and she didn’t want to leave it outside. Have to move things around to store it was a pain. If the Bronco top is easy to store that will be great!

Always a compromise somewhere.

these target adds are ridiculous right now it is showing a ceiling lift system for a Jeep top.
in another thread talking about accessories it was for jeep-top tents...
