Ford Bronco MIC Hardtops Will Go On Sale This Month

The sixth-generation Ford Bronco debuted smack in the middle of a global pandemic, which led to some serious production issues that persisted for years. However, it wasn’t just Ford Bronco production that presented problems for the automaker, but also, suppliers that provide parts for the rugged SUV. Nowhere was this more apparent than with its molded-in color hardtop supplier, Webasto, which not only struggled to build MIC units early on, but also, faced quality issues with early tops as well. That problem was solved after Webasto invested millions to expand its production capacity, but to this day, those wanting to purchase a hardtop separately were forced to go to the aftermarket. However, Ford Bronco MIC hardtops are now set to go on sale this month, according to Bronco Nation.

The new Ford Bronco MIC tops will be offered starting later in March for four-door models only, with a price tag of $4,995 – quite a bit higher than the $1,895 FoMoCo charges when one orders a new Bronco. Customers can opt to have the top shipped to their residence, but must pay freight charges in that instance, or they can opt to have it sent to a dealer and installed for an extra $300. Customers can also use FordPass points toward their top purchase, too, though no discount codes will be offered – only a limited number of tops will be available, after all.

Ford Bronco customers will receive a link to purchase the MIC top from the automaker’s accessories site when it becomes available, but it may take some time to take delivery of one. According to this report, it could take up to a full year or more to process orders and fulfill them, in fact, with priority going to early 2021 model year builds first. On top of that, due to dealer franchise laws in states like Arizona, Vermont, and Oklahoma, that process could take even longer.

Regardless, for those that have been waiting years for the OEM MIC top to become available, this will certainly come as a bit of good news, as currently, the only alternative comes from Advanced Fiberglass Concepts and its fiberglass top, which starts out at $5,250 for a one-piece and $5,750 for the modular top, though it does offer a few advantages over the factory unit.
