That thing/those things are fugly.

Has anyone seen any pictures that show if it is bolt on?

Sure would be nice to throw it in the scrap heap and bend something up that had some aesthetic appeal.

Please spare me the "warranty!", "structural integrity!", "resale value!", "safety!", ect. comments.

Let's make the Bronco great again.

I'll spare you structure and integrity and safety.

But I'll raise you THE WINDOWS WON'T FUCKING SEAL without it.
Indeed.

Please see the vehicles list that I currently own. Windows are not an issue.

My CJ8 has no windows and has never had doors or the 1/2 hard top on it since I've owned it(10 years). My Mogs have no windows. When I retso my K5 the tailgate and door windows will be eliminated. My Bronco will not have windows when restored.

I'm not down with windows(my '66 GT350R clone had no windows, my Kirkham Cobra had no windows and my '68 RS/SS convertible never had the top up or the windows up in the 10 years that I owned it).

Thanks for your input. I take it you don't own a bender.
Not sure I’m following what you mean by this Sports Bar thingerwhathaveyou?

Could you post a pic to show what’s got you worked up. Remember your pressure and your heart.

K5 tailgate windows. I'll like to talk to the MFer that designed that. I can't even guess how many tailgates I've taken apart to fix that window.

On this forum I have seen folks refer to what is normally considered a roll bar as a "sports bar". The B pillar is the B pillar.

I don't have anything "worked up". I haven't gotten my hands on a vehicle yet to work something up. It may not even be work up able(with in reason).

So sorry Ford didn't design a Bronco that exactly 1 person would buy.

I just got the '73 this past Saturday. The window is stuck 1/2 way down.

I'm thinking get an extra tailgate and eliminate the window(since I will never have the top on) and weld in a stripe across the top of the gate to seal up the window slot.

Did you take the windows out of your house too?
