Given the hard tip fiasco, would there be significant demand for a nonremovable roof?

And make the rear window roll up and down into the door. Then we’re talking about competing with all those Toyota 4Runner die hards too.

Just a thought.
did you just ask....?

Yes make it nonremovable (1 piece) from MY22! It should solve the leaking problem!

How would this solve anything? Changing to nonremovable top would mean this needs to go back to the Ford engineers for an updated design. That will take far longer than solving the production issue for the existing top.

I voted yes, but I will enjoy the 'freedom' panels. I've owned one Bronco with removable, and many in my family, the tops never came off. I put a soft top on my old Jeepster Commando and wish I hadn't.

I have wanted a 4WD convertible since 1988, when I drove 2.5 hours to Wilkes-Barre PA to buy a Suzuki Samurai. I only didn’t because insurance was gonna be as much per month as the monthly payment. I bought a Ford Ranger and kept it for 19 years and 280,000 miles. I had many cars and I’m ready for what I want. I hate Chrysler and had a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee and swore I would never buy another Dodge/Chrysler as long as I live. Top off/ doors off, 4WD, that’s for me!

My grandfather’s Bronco had a removable top. My father's Bronco (II) did not. My Bronco WILL HAVE a removable top.

I am not a fan of convertibles or vehicles with removable roofs, I also hate sunroofs. I have owned 4 at this point however. 1st car was a Cavalier z24 vert that the top leaked horribly, then 2 mazda miatas(the NA had its hardtop on 98% of the time, and the ND was the RF), and a Suzuki Samurai that had an aftermarket hardtop bedlinered on.

I would 100% prefer a nonremovable top, but other than that the bronco checks most of my boxes. If i get pushed to 2023 however I might just buy a 200 Series Land Cruiser or an imported 70 series.

"Yes" vote.

I had the top off my '71 Bronco multiple times, but I was in college and on the hunt so what do you expect?

I never took the top off of my '14 JKU and I doubt I'll take the top off my FE.
