I think I can try. 1. MIC will never scratch and shouldn't fade or change much over time. 2. gray matches everything to a degree, like wearing jeans with almost any shirt etc. Or like how most cars have accents that are silver/gray/chrome. Meaning, 3. One size fits all and lowers cost.

And yes I would like a white top too. Part for looks part to keep heat down.
I would rather have a black painted top like a Jeep. The grey looks worse than a few scratches it might get. Looks cheap and even worse next to the black B pillar. Makes me want to just get the soft top or a body color that gets me a white top.

I’m not sure we are seeing the final color though. Who knows.

Great. Now I am liking the OBX again
Also, I'm convinced this forum has complained so much about the carbonized gray top, that Ford went ahead and just changed the black fenders to carbonized gray instead. (the black door handles and pillar don't seem to match either of the fenders or top now)

It looks like every part was sent to a different vendor with the only requirement to make them gray and each chose their own shade.

Check it out for yourself on the Cyber Orange OBX pictured. It includes the running board, but for me they are still too exposed. Your standards may vary. I'm taking the recommendation of the RKR Rails as a nice clean solution to cover the unfinished look.

Sorry, I just noticed that you are in the Big Bend trim level. The BB doesn't have a running board/step rail. The factory supplied rail on the OBX still leaves the pinch welds naked and exposed. The BB doesn't include the rock rails that are on the Black Diamond and above so we are just left with a naked, unfinished look. The RKR Rails provide a clean finished look.
At the distance I'll be looking from, I won't be able to see those holes. Also, mine is black, so they'll pretty near invisible from any distance.
If they're really that much of a concern, something like J B Weld and a little touch up paint will make them go away.

Lot of people don’t like soft top as standard. I’m in the Northeast, and I don’t want it. To offer it standard in two door and soft in four door is odd. They should let you choose with no price discrepancy. If it’s a modular or something special, sure, charge extra. But forcing people to buy a hard top on four door when it’s standard on a two door just seems like a money grab.

edit:I meant the two door standard being hard top
I'm in the Southwest and don't want it. Way too hot.

The powder coated tube steps are an option for BB.

The fitment of these hard tops is awful . The lines do not even line up. I don’t see any drip rails so water Is going To run off these big round sides.

Well, I wanted the Cyber Orange, but the more I see it, the less I like it. Thinking now one of the reds. My last truck was dark red, so maybe stick with that.
Why you making them pass on the right? I do appreciate the pics and video. Thank you.

Only if you are buying the 4-dr. Those who are getting a 2-dr receive the AlreadySunFaded MIC top with the modular top as an option. We don't get the option for a saggy soft top.
Already sun faded..... Made me spit my tea on myself. Thanks for the laugh.

That is exactly what I'm looking for. Don't need the step system, but the RKR Rails are perfect.
I'm handicappable, so I need steps, but I also will be using this in the field as a hunting rig, so I need rock rails. Depending on what I see, I may get regular rails and have a local shop weld on some steps that the uprights are thick steel cable so when I do rub something, they flex and return (unless I really rub something hard).

Yup! The opposite is true for me, though I'll likely see if I can live with the soft top. I've never had one but I live in Texas. I'll have 0% patience with it if it releases my cold air because I'm a delicate little princess these days and I like it like 70 degrees at all times if possible.
Princess...... At least you said it. I want the hard top to mostly keep my heat in here in Alaska. I won't say I'm a princess..... but I am bitchy when I get cold.

I'm done my time in the brutal heat and the cold. I plan on staying comfortable now when I can. No shame!
