Surprisingly, MIC. I did not want to change as I do not like the Ford soft top. I want to get the Bestop fastback (the Ultra equivalent) but need the MIC to get the defrost and (even if lame) washer. Gonna run HT Nov-Apr and Soft for the warmer months.

Yeah that sounds about right. I figure if I kept my BB non-Squatch build then "maybe" I would've been in preview again this week. No guarantee of course. And in the end, easier to go Squatch, get the better suspension, than try to do all that shit aftermarket. 🤷‍♂️ Now I just gotta get me a tow receiver and wires.
See you finally came back around to sas 😅. Is sas still a constraint? The last email ford sent out didn't say anything about it

interesting. I thought hard tops were like unicorns these days!

I hate that you're giving me hope right now. damn you! lol
Well yeah it's possible. If you don't have any of the other deadly sins. Not even sure what they are anymore.

But no guarantee. And I'm at the point that I don't want to give stuff up just for a "chance" to get my Bronco earlier.

Yeah I have no idea if it is or not. I was just way too stressed trying to find wheels (that don't seem to exist yet) and tires that may or may not fit without a lift. So I said F#*K it and went the easy route with Squatch. 🤷‍♂️

agreed.

Why I'm sticking with the hard top, but really need the car as soon as I could get it...

But lately with all I've heard I am pretty pessimistic on getting it this year.

Besides the hard top, I have no other constraints and am within allocations, & a 7/16 reservation... guess it just all depends on how bad this hard top constraint really is.

When I saw the soft top I didn't mind it. I could care less about the hookups and won't need them anyway so hopefully I can get a build date this year and just get a hard top down the road. At this point I don't trust any hard top they will put on the 2021's considering the problems they are having.

what problems are they having?

I straight up thought it was just production. as in, they're only producing 5/day vs 100/day. (which are probably accurate numbers, 😂 )

If you tell me it's fit, or plastic is falling apart or they're crumbling when water hits it, coming out purple instead of gray... then I'd be concerned. But if it's just production delays... meh. Not concerned. They'll work through that.

People were saying that someone that works there was saying they were not passing QC's. Something with a different process than normal where there is some kind of honeycomb center for strength and sound deadening. Kinda makes sense there is no cross member like in the jeeps for support.

but they must have some if people are getting builds that have MIC tops... so if it were a manufacturing defect, I'd doubt they have any.

but we heard it on the internet, so it must be true! :D

you heard one thing, I heard another, so basically no one knows...

yea who knows at this point. After seeing the soft top I am happy if I get. I will wait till aftermarket comes out with a hard top. There will probably be tons of companies making them. I am not going to have a freaking hard top stop me from getting a bronco this year if that's the case

If it is a quality problem, and we experience that, I have every confidence that it will be addressed under warranty. I am not as certain that there will be "tons" of hard top alternatives out there, certainly not for a while. The cost and effort to tool up for a decidedly small market (initially - particularly since most people will be waiting to get what they want) will make it unlikely someone will invest in this effort unless there is a massive population of customers with an un-met demand. Even the 'white-top' demand is probably not enough to chance the kind of investment it would take to do this.
