I dunno. I'm calling BS on this one. I don't even see how this is possible unless a window was left down or the top was left unlatched.

What the owner said:

The snow is coming in where the soft top meets the frame. The driver side is facing westward. We had west wind gusts of 80+km/hr yesterday. What u see is the results. Everything was shut properly. I'm not going to spend 70g and leave windows slightly open in a forecasted blizzard.

lol that seems…fake. I would buy some snow on the passenger seat or something as a soft top issue. But the only issue there is more likely having no roof on haha

The snow obviously didn't come in sideways based on how it is sitting in the bronco. Seems to me they left the top open

Ok now I’m calling 100% bs. Underside of the soft top has snow caked to it. But the visor and other down-facing surfaces do not. This is clear the guy left the soft top in the flipped back position….

I would give him the benefit of the doubt that at least he didn't leave the top open. But left it unlatched and the wind caught it and blew it open. But no way something wasn't left open or unsecured.

Let's see what the dealer or Ford says. I'd love to be a fly on the wall for those conversations. Won't happen because he won't report it. He screwed up and now is trying to get attention by making a post that makes it look like a defect.

I'm not even sure he had the doors on!

The interior of the doors doesn't have a ton of snow, but the inside of the door frame does.

In the FB post you can clearly see in one of the pics that there's a bunch of snow on the door sill.🤔

What I find hilarious is he could have cleaned it up, moved on and no one would ever know. Now his stupidity is being spread all over the internet. Guarantee it will show up in the Google News feed eventually. LOL

In another view from the back looking forward to this same corner there is snow on top of the visor. Snow stuck to the roof like you point out is a strong indication the the roof was folded back and this area was facing upwards for snow to get on it.

I'm in that Facebook group, and caught this picture this morning. I live in northern Wisconsin and have seen what happens in a hard driving snow storm when somebody leaves a window even cracked open. It looks a lot like this. I'm guessing the top was not secured in some fashion along the edges, and the driving wind blew it open and allowed snow in. Just being honest, I have not personally attempted to install or remove a soft top on a Bronco.

I will however say this: as I previous stated I live in northern Wisconsin. I refused to change my order to a soft top for reasons like what he experienced. This guy literally lives in the Arctic circle. You gotta want a Bronco real bad to change your order(which he states he did in his replies) to a soft top living in such a climate. My belief is he gets what he deserves for doing such a thing.
