Mine was built in June 2022 as well. So far so good. I treat the top with 303 protectant. This top is my biggest concern with the Bronco. Will it hold up beyond warranty? 5 years?, 10?, 20? I plan to keep it till I'm dead.....will be pissed if this happens.
I definitely wouldn't put anything on the mic top for fear of them denying my warranty. Imagine if wax touched it!

Question for the page:
Is this side cracking near the window happening to both 2 doors and 4 doors or just 4 doors?
Curious.....
Thank you.

The roof on the right rear passenger side cracked on my 2-door base. I noticed the crack about 2 months ago, at around 8000 miles. Rear roof has never been off, never took the truck rock crawling, always garaged. Took it to my Ford dealer for an oil change and showed them the defect. They took some pics and said they'd order a replacement. No drama, so far....

Wonder how this will be handled down the road? Say yours doesn't show the cracks until warranty is up. Will we be SOL? Extended warranty cover something like this?

This top is my biggest and only concern with my Bronco. So far so good, but, I have the same concerns as you. I plan to keep my Bronco until I die. What happens if this occurs when the warranty is up. Ford should provide a lifetime warranty on these tops for the original purchaser. Replacement tops should not be sent out until the flaw is totally corrected. I have tagged Ford multiple times on this issue....crickets.

Even though my soon to be delivered Bronco is "only" a 30k version, I'm still kind of wondering what I'm getting myself into. This will either be a good experience, or will cement why I prefer old school 4x4s. Definitely not getting rid of my TJ (hardtop looks fine after 20+ years) and old Land Rover. At least not until this Bronco proves itself to me in terms of performance and reliability. Hoping it works out ...

I don't want to write too long of a post. I am on my Third hard top. Love the Bronco, Ford has been good but in order to get what I wanted I had to do a BBB auto claim. Process was smooth and quick. Long story short, Ford had replaced my roof twice under warranty. Third time they did not want to replace they wanted to repair, add seals here and there and shift the tops etc.... I told them no way. Started my claim, it took about 2 months but I was able to get FULL extended warranty on Bronco from Ford up to 100,000 miles, also they replaced my roof for a third time and gave me a check for $5,000.00. Any one having issues with tops, no matter if it is cracking, noise, bubbling, water coming in ( I had all 4) I would recommend this process. Ford Motor Company was easy to work with and they did what was right in the end.

I will be selling my new top as I ordered an after market hard top with the money FMCO gave me.

As awful as it is that you had to replace it so many times, I'm glad you were able to continually get it replaced. Hopefully the more of us who complain about it the better the hard tops will get. Also nice that you got a fat check!
