The shame should be people who need hill descent, automatics, off-road modes and computer controlled front dig to drive.

I am excited to get a Bronco and switch from my JL Rubicon 2 Door. But the doors/and top off and on really doesn’t seem that much different as far as time and process. I was expecting an improvement from everything we read.

I saw a cart for Wranglers that helps you lift off the rear hard top and also store it in your garage. I'm assuming it would work for a Bronco top also. Depending on pricing, might have to look at getting one.
$20 and a half hour you can make a top lift in the garage ....

Nice find! Thanks!! I keep wondering about everyone putting those doors on the ground and the damage it will do to the edges.
This 👆 is my only worry about the frameless doors on the bronco. The only way to store them will require the bags (assuming the door bags are standard and not an optional buy) and a lot of space to stack them OR a specialized hanger (using the door pins).

The framed Jeep doors might be a tad heavier but storing them on a wall is (potentially) a lot easier and cheaper ....

Although you could probable use those same hooks I have there and set the Bronco doors ON them and then use bungies or a camlock strap to secure them to the wall. 🤷‍♂️

Well based on that video I'm getting the paint protection film on my door for sure.
With the hinges being on the inside you are going to have to be super careful not to bang the edge of the door on the fender. Not something you would want to do in a rush, when you are tired or after a few adult beverages.
I don't know about that door thing...
The guys looks like struggling to get it in, more than I do on my Wrangler.
Plus it seems really easy to dent that door the way the hinges are inside (vs Wrangler with hinges on the edge)...
Future will tell I guess... Of that will be the branding of the Bronco like the mirror dent on the Jeeps...
I agree we will have to be VERY CAREFUL during removal and installation to avoid scratching our doors and fenders. Paint protection film sounds like one solution but I wonder if some smart enterprising aftermarket company would design and sell some type of custom molded temporary edge guards. Something we could quickly slip on and off, similar to standard door edge guards but made of no-mar plastic or rubber u-channel, similar to these:

I have a Harken Hoist for my current hard top. It would fit this just fine. Also, my JK top is HEAVY AS HELL, and nowhere this easy to maneuver. This top looks to be extremely light, as do the doors.
