Is sound deadening possible for a soft top? A soft top sounds fun and I thinking I could add a hard top layer if needed, but I don’t want it to sound like an airliner on the highway. Can a soft top road noise be reduced? That is what I’d like if so..
I believe you have to get the more expensive hard top to get the option for sound deadening.

The only item I want to be able to get ala carte is the B&O sound system upgrade. Don’t need or want all the items in the Lux package.

Still trying to decide whether it’s a Big Bend with the Mid Package or an OBX. Outside of that I just want the 2.7L and upper sound system.

I think I’d be happy with a base 2 door plus a cold weather package. It would cost nearly 6 grand to jump to a BB and add the mid package. Seems like a lot when all I really want is remote start and heated seats.
Any idea what options are available for aftermarket remote starters for the manual?

I'm really hoping Ford surprises us with some Ala Carte options across all trims, or at least BB and up.... They would in fact squeeze a few extra grand out of me. (I know how packages work, but there are usually some things worth it to the manufacturer to make ala carte, and there are already a few ala carte options - bumpers, bash plates, aux switches, rear locker)

My personal wish list in no particular order...

Washout floors
Leather seats
heated seats
cooled seats (not even part of a package currently)
12'' Screen
33'' Sasquatch package -- maybe call it Sasquatch Jr., or Miss Sasquatch or the Chupacabra... (I don't care for the fake beadlocks/35s - not a deal breaker, but meh.) Another way to do this would be to make the front locker and upgraded HOSS ala carte items - but easier to just go with smaller wheels and tires.

I know Big Bend allows you to get the heated seats but that's the only part of that trim I want - and its like 5k above base.

Leather is not a huge deal to do after market so that's not a deal breaker. I'd put LED lights on the list too, but those will def be available after market.

Currently I'm pretty sold on the Base/MT/Sasquatch. I'm tempted by the BL, but I have no interest in the disco, the goat modes or the vinyl seats. So even though it would allow me to get essentially a "Miss Sasquatch" package, washout floors, heated seats, and a 12'' screen (with high upgrade) I'd be paying over 12k to essentially get cheaper wheels tires/a wash out floor/heated seats/12'' screen - Which I'm not going to do, but I would pay a few grand more. There are only two things on my list that would actually cost Ford more. (Not accounting for "one off" production costs, but it's also just a matter of grabbing parts from bin B instead of bin A.)

I await your comments about being picky, and ungrateful to the Ford Gods.

Do you really need COOLED seats?

Or do you just need less top ;)
I see your in DC, not really a hot location. For us Southerners and desert dwellers, we can see you don’t understand. Here is a Summertime picture of the roadway. Yeah, I have actually fried a egg on the sidewalk before.

As far as riding without the top, 105F is the max temp of my comfort zone with a spider web shade on.

Cooled seats...... just a nice feature
I would love that too but cooled seat means they have to be perforated and I highly doubt the synthetic seats can do that (or that Ford would invest in that as an option).

Bigger wheels and automatic keyless entry.

If I can get that on the Base, I’d save myself thousands of dollars. Probably the reason Ford won’t let it happen.
