Looks great but the soft top is just an aesthetic killer.

Seems the better the Bronco looks the more the soft top stands out.

Don't mean to throw water on this build because I like it. But just think about how this would look with an MIC or black painted top.

EDIT: Hell yeah top down.


I actually prefer the look of the soft top over MIC. I would rarely go full "topless" with MIC and the soft top will allow me to do it anytime.

Have you seen one "safari style" with the windows removed, but the top not down? Looks very cool, IMO.

I will say the wavy windows look very bad and I wish someone would do aftermarket soft top windows that would be nice and tight, but not allow you to lift the back up. You could switch out if need be.

Was the modular bumper a pain to get and fit? I’d love to get one instead of my plastic bumper.

Just curious.

How much clearance do you have between the BDS Upper Control Arms and the Inside of the Tires? Do the tires Rub at all with the Factory Sasquatch +30 Offset Wheels?

I am also curious if the you have any clearance issues on the UCA with the stock wheels?
I will eventually being doing a lift and going to 37's. I would like to keep the stock sasquatch wheels because I like the look of them.
Was thinking I might have to add a thin wheel spacer to avoid hitting the UCA.

yeah, the soft top is the worst. Functionally, I really like mine and have had no issues with it compared to some of the hard top problems reported. but yeah...it just looks like a sloppy mess of a rag, but it's getting less noticeable. The tilt up feature that causes the wavy back windows is utterly useless to me and it's not worth the trade off IMO.

Not close here. I have heard there might be issues with rock sliders / running boards......

Came on from factory. Not looking forward to swapping it out for ADD bumpers with parking sensors and cruise control module.

Looks great! dig the Maxlider stuff, wondering out loud if you were on the fence about their light bar vs. the RC (which looks killer too….).

nice mods, man that thing is beastly!
Exact same question. I love the Maxlider light bar but it is LOUD. And is bigger more noise? I'm not sure what direction to go......

Nice build!!! Can you tell me about fender flares add ons? It looks like you installed the fender flare delete along the arch. I think it would work well with my AMB Wildtrak. Thx...
Fender flares were swapped from Sax -> maxlider vintage. @Maxlider Brothers Customs = no other changes.
