Do we know if the tops are interchangeable? If I switch to a soft top due to the delay, will I be able to add the painted Mod top once available?
If you order it with a soft top only, it will not have the wiring and washer fluid hose connections required to run the rear wiper on the hard top.

You should be able to add the Mod top once available...if ever. However, know that it has been verified that with a soft top...you do not get the hard top connections for rear window wiper and defrost built in to the Bronco.

Yes, all tops are interchangeable. However, you will have to add electrical and fluid connections (and buttons to operate them) in order to get the hard top's full functionality.

edit: Wow this thread was moving quickly! No one had answered when I was typing that lol

Debating on just switching to a MIC top and just ordering the white top with my $1000 from Ford. You think that would cover the freight shipping?

How about this as another option here.For all of the people with the dual top or FE top issues. Instead of making someone get something they don’t want, FORD could equip those vehicles with the wiring harnesses for the hard top, put the soft top on the vehicle at delivery and then suck it up and safely deliver the hard top, of what ever color, at same original price, when available. it may possibly effect more, but the FE owners are effected the most. Good will and the Ford pass bonus go a long way! ;) For the people with other models and were going to wait, they will still have to wait. But to not get the FE the way you wanted it or not at all. No Good

When they fist took the top away I think many of us hoped for the Soft Top only option or Soft Top now/Hard Top later (Dual Top option), but this was the limitation. After several months I can't believe they haven't given this as an option for people. Are these kits part of the tops that come from their manufacturers? Just seems like a waste of materials shipping a top many people are not happy about.

WTF!!!!!!! I NEED CLEAR ANSWERS. So its get an FE with the ugly MIC top which does not match the rest of the trim, or no FE? I placed my order, paid extra, got my confirmation email from Ford. End of story!!!

Now it's on them. I ordered an FE, Cactus Grey all black trim. I'll wait if that's what the reality will be, but I will get what I ordered and paid for. I'll accept additional colors (GREEN of course), extras, some points, swag. Because it's the least Ford can do for one set back after another. But forcing me into a corner after I placed my order is unacceptable. We're not just talking, these are now real orders. Real money being spent, plans made.

I also have an FE. Just read the email. I read it as saying “if you want an FE, it WILL be a 21 (no green) and it WILL have an MIC top”. If you aren’t okay with that, you can’t have it any other way. I’m so bummed. The LAST thing I wanted was that gray top. I was planning on getting my top wrapped white (LB paint) but from what I understand, the MIC cannot be wrapped.

I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!
I am also sorry for those of you who want it now. I do too, but now my

FIRST EDITION WILL BE GREEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As soon as I saw the Instagram post. I had to jump on here with those who feel my pain and my immense joy. I'm jumping and screaming and my family thinks I'm crazy. All I could say is "It will be GREEN".

Longer wait sucks, but for GREEN it's worth it. And all the extra cool accessories that are supposed to come straight from factory.
Agree with others. I read it as saying you can only get a MIC top sinc that’s the only top offered for 21 and the FE MUST be a 21 model year. Would make no sense to have an FE that isn’t the first model year. You could hold out for the heritage edition in 22 and get that in green

if they can build a two top option that includes the wiring and fluids, they can build a, “ship it with the soft top, with wires and tubes, and ship the hard top later“ option as well. Can and will are the operative words here. If anyone at Ford is listening just eat the cost and put the customer first. Good will goes along way, but bad will goes a lot farther. Again I have no dog in the fight on this. I am not effected by this issue. As uncomfortable as this is, Someone at Ford needs to get out in front of this mess

I wonder what availability will be for the white top. I think it said it will be for certain editions of the Bronco. One would hope it's a standalone accessory option to order.

Yes, that is the other super sucky aspect of the MIC top. It can't be wrapped. What garbage!!!

So I ordered a MIC top, but I still got an email about the other tips moving to 2022. So MIC is still viable?

I was wanting the Black top originally but changed my mind quick because I like the MIC look with CG.

Now with Badlands being a constraint may get pushed to 22MY when I had a glimmer of hope for a 21MY...

Won't know for sure until late May but that still could change even after they give us ETA of build/Delivery.

Where did you hear that Badlands was a constraint? I've only ever seen Wildtrak...

Was going to do the same. The company I contacted about wrapping said that the MIC most likely couldn't be wrapped. They had issues with some Jeep tops that had a similar finish.
