Would someone with Twitter mind reaching out to Mike Levine for clarification on the 2 door modular tops ability/inability to remove the rear quarter windows. Seems from what we’ve all read on this forum we have two different forum members given two different answers from two different Ford employees. How are we to know which of those two employees is in the know? Thanks in advance to anyone who attempts To reach Mr. Levine
HAHA

I had a jeep wrangler 4 door for the reason of having 2 kids plus dogs. It's definitely a trade off but for that reason I will be getting a 4 dr Bronco. It is nice having that extra cargo room for camping and road trips.

Per current comments, the 4D Modular will have the removable windows, but the 2D Modular will not.
Hey uh @The Pope, if the 2 door 'modular' top as you call it, doesn't have removable windows, how is it modular? It's just a regular top at that point.

Sorry, I couldn't resist being Captain Obvious on this one. I still love ya tho 😉

If like a wrangler, the back seat of a 2 dr is not meant for people that you care for. So a floor vent 'slot', ugly wall of black plastic, no windows etc. shouldn't be surprising as it would be a waste of production $'s to spend much effort/features on that area. If you need passengers, 4 dr is the obvious answer and why the JLU is so much more popular than the JL despite the higher cost and way worse breakover.
The back seat on a two door is a funny thing, when the weather was good friends would fight over the backseat, when a storm came up and I put the soft top back on they hated it. Oh well, I had my seat haha

If it wasn’t meant to have rear passengers there wouldn’t be a seat. If it wasn’t meant to have rear passengers the front seats wouldn’t slide forward. If it wasn’t meant to have rear passengers it wouldn’t matter where the roll bar is. If it wasn’t meant to have rear passengers the cargo area would be completely flat. If it wasn’t meant to have rear passengers there wouldn’t be seat belts. If it wasn’t meant to have rear passengers the modular top wouldn’t have a port hole roof.

But occasionally a 2 door owner may just want the roof on and the doors and side windows off. Regardless of rear passengers. If your paying for a modular hard top, I don’t think that’s too much to ask unless it is a design problem to do so.

Its not a Porsche, it’s ok to want some features in the rear passenger area of the vehicle.

New Q&A session said no removable windows for the 2-door, only the gun turret hatch.

I was told there would be removable windows in the 2-door modular, but the preproduction roof I saw didn't have it.

I don't know what to think. 🤷‍♂️

Then I guess Ford doesn't really know what modular is... A gun turret hatch is nothing more than a moonroof. I'd take modular to mean removable window panels... But that's just me.

@EsvlNvrDy sometimes Captain Obvious can be Obviously Mistaken...... and FoMoCo can call anything that they design whatever they want. 🤷‍♂️

Thanks @Rollerstud98 & @Aman

No, side windows that could be opened/closed at any time. Seems like a super simple/easy thing to add that would greatly benefit people in the back seat.
Among 78-79 Broncos, the rear tops with sliding windows are highly sought after compared to the fixed versions. If Ford's rock stars really knew their Bronco history, they'd know that fact. Nobody wants a gunner's hatch unless they can legally mount a crew served weapon up there.

Even then, I'd have to decide between driving and being on the gun. I think I'd trust my wife with a machine gun before I let her drive my new Bronco, so...

Ever sat in the back of a MINI Cooper (not a Clubman or Countryman)? You’d better fit in a car seat or be an amputee. I’ve not seen the 2 door tops up close but it seems like the aftermarket might be able to build a replacement window if there is demand.
