They are coming in slow so I’ll post here as well unless they pick up the pace:

“Active drain plugs are only available with the rubberized flooring. There are passive drain plugs in all 2- and 4-door Broncos.”

Thanks. So sounds like panel above rear seat on 4 dr CANT be removed with the roof rack in place.

guess not that big of a deal since if you need a roof rack and plan on having say a thule, you wouldn’t want to remove the mid panel anyway

Considering the whole twitter Q&A is commenting on future products, I find it interesting they pulled out this tired line for this question. Reading between the lines, did they just say yes?
