It looks like there probably will be no white top for model year 2021. Like many others, I will either wrap or paint my top white. Have any of you decided what shade of white? I was thinking of just using the Oxford White that will be on the 2021 Bronco.

They have a good reputation in the Jeep community for matching colors.

If they don't have the color you want, and I don't see Oxford White ( big surprise :rolleyes: ), they'll make it for you.

I’ve been watching DIY bed-liner paint videos and a popular choice is the Raptor liner:

https://www.raptorliner.com/

It’s tintable or they have a white you can use. They offer an adhesion promoter for tough surfaces like the MIC top seems to have. It’s also possible to thin it to reduce the ‘bumps’ so that the bedliner doesn’t interfere with how the top assembles. It can be applied with a paint gun so you can vary the thickness of the coat that way as well. It can also be rolled on which seems easy, too.

I want a white top and I’m gonna do whatever I gotta do to get it. My daughter is geeked to be painting my new rig with me - it’ll be a fun project. I plan on getting a Big Bend and painting the top, the grill, and the wheels. Should cost me around half the cost of doing an entire vehicle - $150 or less all-in. Can’t wait!

I did the raptor liner on my bumpers, grill & rocksliders on my jeep. Has held up well but its a pain in the a** to clean. I would not want that in white knowing how much effort it takes to clean up the black from dirt/mud.

Oh, hmm, thanks for the feedback. Got any recommendations? Maybe it needs something with less texture?

Whimbilden white is such a nice creamy white. I know they used it on the limited edition for the 2015 50th anniversary mustangs.

I spoke with my local Line-X dealer and they recommended not using white. They stated that the Line-X texture captures dust will change color over time.
Yep, that's my take from experience with it in my truck bed and the raptor liner on my bumpers of my jeep. It's a PITA to clean. I have to use simple green and a brush and go over it a few times to get any staining out from dirt/mud. Can only imagine white unless you like pouring bleach on your bronco :LOL:

Look up Durabak. It's a non textured bedliner and comes in white. It will look much nicer than the other options because it won't hold dirt as bad. It's pricy though.
