Alaska here. I don't wanna hear any complaints on shipping times from anyone who is less than 3000 miles from MAP 😅
Oh... Good call! Ok, I'll shut up. Haha. On another note, my colleague for work lives in Fairbanks. We give him a lot of shit for being so remote considering work. Funny but not funny!

I'm also a little disturbed by what seem like obvious quality misses:
- fiberglass protruding from the MIC top
- poorly painted hinge
Regarding the paint, I went back to other videos and I saw the same issue. I believe this is because the doors has to be in place when they paint the Bronco and the head of the robot cannot reach that point because of the position of the door and the hinge. To make it better, they will need to paint the car with the doors off but it has to be painted at the same moment, if not, color miss match will be another problem.

Fiberglass, yes it shouldn't, but what concern me the most was the fact that only one panel came with sound deadening. I mean, no quality check at the end of the line saw that??

Do you know what your build date was?

There was a point that MAP was using defective hard tops to just keep Broncos that were parked weatherproofed. (Webasto made a ton of reject tops during plant startup). I’m gonna guess yours was parked with temporary top and error was made shipping without replacement. It looks like a couple of panels are even missing the headliner 😂

Disappointed but not surprised by the issues, typical Ford. Something about your video though, has me really excited for mine again. For the most part I really like what I'm seeing, and it's great to be getting videos from someone other than Ford sponsored companies.

haha yeah it was on one panel
This is the first I have heard about someone else not getting the headliner after ordering it. My Dealer showed me that it was on the order. I am waiting for a fix. What answer did your dealer give you? Mine said they will likely send a completely new top since the headliner is installed at the Webasto facility.

A whole new top is on order for mine as well. Not holding my breath for it, would much rather see others be able to actually get their Broncos first. I still consider myself lucky to have gotten mine when I did , and if it means having a less than perfect roof for a while I am cool with that.

I just hope for everyones sake the quality of mine is a fluke and people having to wait for them are not waiting for something with so many issues.

My window sticker date changes again today.
it was 6/28, 7/2, and now 7/9
I wonder if anyone is having the same issue. Ford tracking says 7/2 production
When can you see the window sticker? After it goes into production?

Speaking of the roof and quality checks, it appears the center section is a little darker than the rest of the roof. Does it look that way in person?

It doesn't look that way in person, they all appear to be same color.
