Haha. Well. Im not some wussy millennial. I will tell anyone to their face that the MIC 2.0, at least the one in this thread, has sections that look like shit. Sorry. True. For anyone thats waited...you dont care and just want your damn bronco and I dont blame any of you. But after saying the MIC 2.0 looks crappy in person, I will drive off into the sunset in my BL with my soft top up or down, because it works, and it doesn't look like it was custom fab'd, a second time, by the marx brothers. For record, I do plan on buying the hard top some day lol so I have both. But will I use it...prob not.
Maybe not a millennial, but a bit full of yourself for sure! lol

Threads like this remind me of instant replay in football...it's just tediously obnoxious.

"Experts" here zoom in, distill the smallest possible hair splitting detail from a single, sun glaring, bad angle photo, into the largest "sky is falling", this top is shit over dramatic response.

It is pretty comical.

I thought Mic 1.0 looked fine to me. As long as it keeps the inside dry and doesn’t rattle, who cares? But I must have low standards.
same, but i've always only had shitboxes so i know my standards are low

I’ve come to the conclusion that Ford/Webasto had the correct MIC process down the whole time.

They purposely staged this debacle just to get us to stop talking about the color descreptancies between the fender flares, bumpers and the MIC tops!
Yeah....still do not understand why they chose to go with a gray top but black plastics everywhere else (except for the two trims that get a gray plastic grille which I also am not a fan of). Not really discrepancies just weird artsy fartsy decisions.

Tops still do not look clean like other OEM hard tops. Rush order to fix guess i will get mine when MIC top 5.0 rolls out or aftermarket.

Buy a new $60K vehicle and your not looking for scratched paint or ripped seats. Yeah kind of want the built ford tough, proud/pride in your work. Overall this sets up, outsourced or not as a overall issue for Jim Farley and Ford.

Close enough for government work or horseshoes or hand grenades does not fly here. Is it too hard to have good finished work? or just rough in. Ever look at the tolerances and the gaps in other vehicles?

Amen to that. This is sloppy, second-rate work. With still-exposed edges and honeycombing, it looks like shit, and you still have that "minor" problem of frost wedging at the exposed edge.
I understand the "good enough" crowd (especially those who have waited years for the Bronco to come back), but we get torrential downpours and blizzards here on a regular basis. It's only a matter of time before that layer starts peeling....and likely on Day 1 of warranty expiration.

I don't expect a luxury vehicle for $60K, but I do expect a finished product!

You are asking people to get up in arms about a part on a vehicle most don't even have, and many won't get for a year. Why would I get upset about the potential quality if a part on a vehicle I don't even own yet? When I get the vehicle, if there are issues, I will address it. I can't spend time being mad about something that hasn't even occurred yet. That is a pretty silly exercise for me and anybody else, TBH.

It's seems folks are just looking for reasons to be mad, even if it doesn't directly impact them.

Edit: I have looked at the OPs photos numerous times, and everytime I think they look great. I am looking for the poor quality stuff everybody is yelling about, and I just don't see it. Maybe I don't have an eye for it, but I am also not seeking out trouble.

I didn't expect much to change in under 2 months with the MIC top. There are some concerns. I'm leaning heavily towards soft top and waiting for the aftermarket to catch up. That way I can get the top in the color I want (black). I do not want to roll the dice on the MOD top that Ford pushed down the road to MY23 either. At this point, that seems 50/50 odds at best.

Gimme the soft top and prep kit now and in 2 years I'll buy the aftermarket version of the MIC top (black). Problem solved.

I'll take any version of the MIC top. Sorry, I really just don't get what the issue is. A bunch of whiners have delayed production of 60,000 Broncos.

Let's just get on with it.
