Dealer is probably hoping to bully the customer into trading it in or selling it back by stating replacement parts are 8 months out.

They're waiting for the entire top assembly
Then there is something fishy unless they slashed more than the panels.

Them slashing more than the plastic windows makes even less sense.

I’m wanting to sell this dealer installed option. Bronco security drawer. $500! Save your soft top!

My dealer had broken a couple of clips that hold the rear window section in when I took delivery of my Bronco, I can't speak for any of the other panels, but the rear window took about 2 weeks to come in up here in Canada.
not sure when that was but I ordered the entire rear window and my dealer said it was in stock and would be delivered within 2 days (which it was)

parts are usually more readily available/in stock than the whole car

Sounds fishy, I would say parts are readily available especially with production being stopped there’s more than likely a storage of parts like these that Ford can pull off the shelf: I could be wrong though last week I got a rear soft top window within a day… (if it was electrical I would say different) but something like this seems weird, it’s an exterior piece that isn’t “complex” and most likely doesn’t have any major supply chain disruptions

additionally Ford is showing the TREKTOP TWILL RETRACTABLE as being in stock(VM2DZ78501C25H)

In this day and age and with the current “it’s no one’s fault establishment”, someone needs to post an educational video on UTube about “how easy it is to break into a Bronco without damaging the top”.

I don’t think it really matters anymore, hard top, soft top, you cannot leave anything you value in your car. I’ve even considered leaving my Explorer unlocked to reduce the potential for damage.

Packager delay is part of the problem, looks like a bunch are back ordered right now but enough in transit to cover those with extra.
