Still doesn't make any sense to me, if the mod top wasn't late availability, those orders would have been filled before yours, just like they will be with the top being late availability. the top option being standard on a trim level has nothing to do with priority of the build.

trim level is an OPTION, the black mod top is also an OPTION.
The problem is there could be too many orders getting pushed to late availability thus turning my otherwise 21 standard order into a 22 - just to satisfy someone who wanted an optional item for their 21, I could take the MIC top and keep my place in line but there are too many unknowns as to where my place in line ends up with OPTIONAL being allowed for the black mod on other trims.

They dropped the price from wildtrak and fe. Those emails went only to those who held those reservations

It would be in bad form if they fulfilled black top orders for the other trims, before the trims where it comes came standard.
FIFY. People have to stop with the presumption that it is standard. Ford already corrected the standard features and compensated with a reduction in price. Now, the mod top is optional on all trims.

YOU are just another person that wants an optional item for their 21. there is nothing special about having a WT reservation, the trim level on your reservation means absolutely nothing. It can be changed at order time.

The only thing you can do is take the MIC or Soft tops if you want to be sure of getting a 21. But I still think there is a pretty good chance of getting a 21 with a mod top. I'm sure many people that would have opted for the mod top have changed to MIC or Soft for this exact reason.

Trim level is not an option - trim level dictates the minimum standard equipment on the vehicle - I don't want sway disco, or washout interior or steel bumper...I want high speed desert runner and whatever that comes with STANDARD as originally expressed. That's the difference.

And the way they corrected it was by making it LATE Availability for the vehicles it was SUPPOSED to be STANDARD on. I'm done with this argument.

You see that is a matter of perception. Ford no longer considers the mod top as standard. They corrected the price to reflect the difference. It is now optional for all trims.

If you are upset that Ford promised something before it can be ordered, then get in line.

I'm not upset about shit here - I'm just stating my opinion of the decision to make the mod top Late Availability and for whom.

I'm on the fence, MIC or Shadow Black (SB) will go with Lightning Blue. I reserved late 7/13, but was stamped 7/14. I prefer the modular SB top. I will make a last minute decision based on ordering date/time.

This thread is NOT to bash on the mic top. Idc how you feel about it. This thread is to give me some sense of calm about how late I'm getting my Bronco 😋

Who is getting a wildtrak or FE and opting to wait for the black top?
Follow up question --- whats your reservation time stamp?

You guys are my competition, so to speak outside of dealer allocations.

I have a 9:10am 7/15 reservation
10:38 pm on 7/13. And that was with 2 and half hours of constantly getting booted of the damn site. 🙄. I have a FE reservation, but will go Wildtrak if Navy Pier is FE's only interior. Patience grass hopper, I'll definitely be waiting for Black MOD hardtop.

I definitely want the black top on mine so I'll wait as long as needed even into the 22-23 model years.

7/16 Wildtrack Reservation and also late October Granger. Waiting for dual tops, if late late will cancel original and go with better discount.

Models (not trims btw ) will almost definitely be grouped together for production efficiencies. Likely higher priced models over lower priced models. FE's will probably go first. I would suspect a run of FE's even delayed due to top, would still be grouped together, and grouped together ahead of any other models waiting for hard top. But I am sure there are a lot more logistics involved.
Just speculating though.

I'm getting my Bronco as soon as I can and will just buy the Shadow Black top as a part when it is available.

First night BD 2-door rez. Missing 3 data points to decide:
  • What's the PRODUCTION MIC top look like?
  • If you decide to hold out for Black MOD, what's a realistic build date?
  • Since MIC is priced in, what's the upcharge for MOD?
