It is my understanding that you can only fit the front LH and RH roof panels inside the Bronco and the middle single piece will not fit inside. (Aside from laying the rear seats down.

Any possibilities of securing it to the top of the rear cap using a bag and the roof rails? Given that I live in FL there is always a possibility of a sudden shower.

I’d say if you put the roof panel over the roof rails it kind of defeats the purpose of removing the top 😂.

Honestly i don’t think the middle section is supposed to be traveling with you when removed. Bimini type of top is you best friend for sudden showers

Having had a soft-top JKU for over 7 years, I have been struggling with this myself. I love the fact that the hardtop center section is removable and thought it may be a good option.....until I realized the center section was one piece. We roll top down as much as possible and often have to stop to put the top up due to the Florida rain. I don't mind getting a but wet but the rains down here have a tendency to get a bit heavy....I think we are going to stick with the soft top.

Ford is proud of the fact that the Bronco is designed in Detroit. It might have helped if they could have visited the South during development. Preferably in June-August.
