You have to drink every time they mention a component that's a 'deadly sin', and chug every time they mention how awesome it is to remove the MIC top.
I'm at work. I can't follow this directive or I'd:
A) get fired
B) end up in a Patron-induced psycho world full of paranoia and boisterous laughter at inappropriate times
C) drink enough cheap PBR to float a Nimitz-class Carrier.

And I don't even drink any more, so chances are I'd fall into a shame-filled snooze-fest in my own urine before the end of the video.

Strategery.

In all seriousness, I have no direct info that OKTB is tied to this release... the dots seem to connect okay.

I was told to expect OKTB as soon as last Fri/Today. The final hold up - the closure line sequence timing - was apparently addressed last week. If we don't hear of it being issued tomorrow, I'll be concerned if news doesn't come this week.

As an aside, late news tonight that the 2 door floorpan issue has been addressed with modifications to the transport racks. 2 door delays are completely due to roof supply issues. More info tomorrow, I'm sure.
Thanks, Ross. I wanted to highlight that statement as it doesn't have to be. There is no factory option soft top for 2-dr buyers. Just because Webasto doesn't offer a soft top for the 2-dr doesn't mean Ford can't alleviate the constraint. They should give the option to buy the BesTop Fastback soft top instead of the MIC. It doesn't have to be at an equal price point. They can certainly upcharge the cost difference, but at least give the option.

Thanks again for continuing to provide what information that you can.

What are we celebrating? Webasto plant fully operational?

I was watching a new Wayalife video the other day. They bought a new two door wrangler sport, and Eddie says there are regulations specifically for the two door that restrict Jeep from selling soft tops until some number of hard tops have been sold. (Roughly 7:45 mark.)

I wonder if the two door Bronco only comes with a hard top for the same reason - in which the only fix is Webasto getting their shit together.

Thanks for that cued up link. Interesting footnote. I wonder what the actual regulation/threshold that needs to be met? I still think the bean-counters could figure out the appropriate costs and charge for the option after the threshold is met to alleviate any constraint.

I was expecting to see a Bronco coming off the line and the workers going wild.

Am I alone in thinking that was just lame? Nothing new, nothing exciting, q&a was so awkward it was cringey.
Yeah, I was anticipating more, but it was ok.

All I noticed was the pallets and pallets of parts behind them; it’s like they were trying to make a point or something.

Exactly. Not some video that was put together a few months ago. Sorry but the line, “ it is so easy to get behind the wheel of a new Bronco”, did nothing but increase my level of dismay. Whoever allowed that line to be part of the video should be shown the reservation list and provided the numbers of folks NOT getting their Bronco anytime soon.
