Might be a deal-breaker for me. My rear seat passengers have to have some way to get some ventilation. Hell, even a minivan from the 80's had hinged rear windows with a latch at the bottom where you could open it a couple inches outward. 😡 (n) 😡
It’s something that seems possible to do. I’m pretty sure my parents’ expedition can do it. Still not a deal breaker for me, though. Just an inconvenience for anyone sitting in the back.

I wonder if there is too much flex on the glass area for the 2DR top? In the video of them putting the non-modular top on, you can see it flexing a lot. Just a guess.

Just take the whole top off, it is removable.

There is now a 90% chance I will not get a modular top. I like that it's black, but i just don't think it's worth it anymore. I was pretty excited for the windows to pop out because of the lack of soft top option from the factory, but I guess I will live.

Hate to add to the "aftermarket will fix it" crowd, but it is what it is.

Yes, FoMoCo will be leaving a lot of $$$ on the table as the sale of Modular 2D Tops don't sale as they expect due to the side rear windows not being removable or at least being able to pivot open to allow better airflow for the rear passengers when the Rear Roof Section is attached.

FoMoCo, please consider who those rear passengers will be..... most likely small children. You don't care to show any love to them?

And to those who said "just take the top off".... well... for me... if I have small children back there, I would want to lessen the risk of over exposure to Sunlight and any foul weather that the rear roof would protect them from.

I’m definitely in this camp now. The modular top was high on my list of options when it originally sounded like you could remove the rear quarter panels. Dropped a bit on my list when that turned out to be you could only remove the glass. Now you can’t even do that in the two door? If that’s the case I’ll just stick with the MIC top until someone in the aftermarket designs a better hard top.

As mentioned above, I don’t need a hatch for my machine gunner. I would, however, like the option of running with no glass back there. For me though, I was excited because I’ve removed a 2 door wrangler hard top before and it’s definitely a two person job. I was hoping beyond hope that Ford targeted that issue and gave me a top I could pull glass out of ahead of time in order to remove it alone. Without that option I’ll likely never have the top off because I’ll need another person to help remove it.
