I suppose you can have a trailer to pick it up. But with freight delivery, it will be crated. A dealer isn't going to allow you to muscle around the top on their property. There is the issue of liability. You aren't allowed to wrench on your vehicle on their property. And you won't be allowed to muscle the top on their property. You can pay them to install it or accept delivery and have the product installed off-site.
Never had issue picking up large things from a dealership. Only thing I will say is if it’s ordered with a soft tip and you buy a hard top later is the bronco wired for rear defrost in wiper if it didn’t come with a hard top first? That’s the question.

Yes the wiring/plumbing will be plugged into dummy ports in the rear cargo area. I don't see a problem with picking up a part. But again, no dealership that is mindful of liability will allow a customer to install a part on their property. If you have a way of picking it up, then you shouldn't have to pay for the install.

Alright, I’ve got an idea, but you’re gonna have to hear me out:

What if Ford delays the release until they have all the items at full availability. Full stop, you’re not gonna be able to buy a Bronco until they’re able to ship it with, say, a Modular Top (for example).

But then, they announce some “early availability” items, since they are sitting on *some* capacity. That way, “early adopters” who were say, okay with the MIC (in the above example), could order and receive these limited Broncos before everyone else. Price you pay to be the first on your block with the new Bronco!

That gets Broncos out the doors sooner, enables Ford to maximize the total MY21 builds, and everyone gets their particular Bronco orders as soon as possible without having to wait on parts they dont want?
I think Ford should delay until absolutely every complaint on every social media outlet is addressed to the satisfaction of the complainer. So, until there's an ability to order a white-roofed modular top (with soft top, too) in a 2.7L manual w/Sasquatch power-seat MGV (light colored, of course) interior and all options in each package available to order individually and the sway bar disco is made available on non-BL trims . . . don't build one damn Bronco! Then everyone should be happy, right?

The defroster washer question has been answered in several threads and includes pics of them being present.

It is a type of plastic.
Okay. So I can have an MIC top or an MIC top that has been painted. I am inclined to just get the MIC top. If I want to change the color, we can always vinyl wrap it or paint it. I would like to know more about the painted top.

MIC is literally a molded in color thermoplastic. It’s not painted, and wrapping it could prove difficult because of its molded texture.

The modular top is smooth, painted, and would be able to be wrapped or sanded and repainted in a more traditional manner.

I know I have seen some comments on this question in other posts but still confused. On the Badlands trim, where MIC and Soft top are available options, why is it late availability to order both? Is it due to a shortage?

Very confused.

Probably... There are a lot of supply chain issues for manufacturers with the virus and all.

Basically, they don’t want to delay delivering an entire built Bronco to someone just because they are short a top that someone else bought two of.

Kind of like, you can go up for seconds, but only after everyone else has had their first serving.

Once top production is at full speed, and initial demand is addressed, I’m sure the dual top option will become immediately available to order.

Ok dang dual top was kind of interesting but I’ll just stick with my plan for soft top.

Since this thread was resurrected, there needs to be a correction on information posted above that we have learned in the interim. I and others made statements at the time that the plumbing and electrical hook-ups will be present if ordering a soft top from the factory and accepting delivery of a hard top later.

Since those statements were written, Ford has clarified that if a soft top is ordered from the factory then the plumbing/electrical hook-ups won't be included on those builds. Only Broncos ordered with a factory installed hard-top includes the aforementioned hardware.

Ok thanks more to think about @Beach_Bum. I pretty well unplugged from this site for most of December. Not much new but sounds like I missed a couple things.

I wonder what that means for hard top after. I’m pretty well set on soft top but that may be the minority and resale comes to mind if more expensive install/kit.

I'm curious where this was confirmed as fact? It sounds like the usual that gets mentioned enough that it becomes fact even when it's wrong. The soft top removal video shows them present on a Bronco built with a soft top.
