I saw on the forum the painted top is ~50% heavier than the MIC....so I assume its a different product
Ahhh, I gotcha.

I don't see why it would necessarily have to cost extra unless Ford just wants to exploit the demand.
I’m strictly speculating but anytime you see a black package it 2k-5k, so I assume it’s the same for white. Time will tell

One would think

Modular on the two door means both the rear windows and the weird oval come out
OK, I'm gonna be a Word Nerd here, and I know a lot of folks get the general idea with the roof already. But "modular" generally means something has been designed to fit into a space with same-sized parts. Often, it's a grid-built space. Sometimes they are interchangeable. But for the Bronco, the overall idea is just to make it easier to swap in or out other pieces. I think it is well illustrated by the Sunrider, as you remove two of the square modules (the roof panels) and swap in one rectangular panel (the Sunrider) equal to the two you took out. Bottom line for us is how easily swappable/removeable the panels are and how it promotes development of accessories in the aftermarket.

i think the US Navy has a pretty different definition for modular when ship building.
for example, the latest submarines are modular

"Newport News will build the bow, stern, sail, and selected forward modules for each submarine, while Electric Boat will build the hull cylinders, the engine room modules, and the command and control system module. Both shipbuilders will fabricate reactor compartments for the ships they assemble."

Similar, actually, in that one design has elements fabricated by different companies. The Navy standardizes the specs of a given module, and the private companies build and deliver based on that. Different in scope, of course. But using Ford's definition of the specs for a standard module, I'm hoping third-party companies come up with even better accessories than are already out there for Jeep.

What’s the benefit to having no windows in the cargo area, just a safari look?
Having the side glass out allows you to drive with front panels of top off but not get your ears punished with the air vibrations from the trapped air in the back of the rig. >> Ventilaton > Flow through = awesome!

If you're running an automatic the Sasquatch package will give you the 4.7 final drive ratio. Otherwise you'll have the 4.46.
Good point. That is a Pro... AND a Con.
