  1. I talked with my Ford dealer yesterday (July 15) and he didn’t mention this as an option to get my Bronco sooner.

  2. I called my Ford dealership a couple weeks ago about this. They can’t figure out how to do it. They told me just to leave it as it is LOL

    1. Pretty sure they don’t have to do anything but switch to a soft top. All Bronco soft tops scheduled for September and on will include the kit.

      1. I can’t remember if they were just on the 4 doors, but I saw a Bestop soft top when I was at the Off Roadeo in TX. Even the instructors said it looked better than the factory one.

    1. That would make it to easy. It seems they want you to change your entire order to move you aside.

  3. This may have been discussed before, but why does Ford not allow at 2 door soft top only option? My dealer didn’t know the answer to this either.

  4. my dealer said dont switch order it will move your order to the end of the list like you are starting new

    1. I’m keeping my spot in line. They need to give us a free soft tops and reservation I line for the hardtop.
