What Year Bronco Has Removable Top?
Feb 13, 2023
The Ford Bronco has had many iterations and special models since it was first introduced back in the mid-1960s.
During production, Ford added a few special touches to some of the existing models while also often coming out with more substantial changes, all of which made the Bronco attractive to a wider variety of customers.
Some older models of the Bronco come with a removable top while most of them did not. As far as the new generation of the Bronco is concerned, all of them come with removable tops in one way or another. So, what year Bronco has removable tops?
What Year Bronco Has Removable Tops?
The 1966-1977 Ford Bronco comes with a fully removable top, but some models only gave you the ability to open up the front part of the roof. In 1978 the Bronco became a truck and the removable roof was now made out of fiberglass and you could open the back part of it.
This design stayed the same until the 1992 Bronco (and all the later models until discontinuation) when Ford said that you shouldn’t remove the roof, even though that was relatively easy to do.
The new generation of the Bronco that came out in 2021 gave you the ability to remove the top on all of the models, but not in the same way as some of them are soft tops while others are hard tops.
Which Bronco Models Come With A Removable Soft Top?
The four–door Ford Bronco comes with a removable soft top as standard, but if you want, you can pay Ford $695 if you want a removable hard top instead. The soft top design has its upsides as it aids in the car’s practicality and has a few clever solutions when it comes to easily stowing items in the cargo area.
A soft top design comes with its own set of drawbacks and benefits, but, indeed, you can’t get the soft top on the 2-door Bronco.
Which Bronco Models Come With a Removable Hard Top?
The hard top roof is the standard for the 2-door Bronco while also being the only option for the 2-door Bronco.
Some are wondering why doesn’t Ford let you opt for a soft top on the 2-door Bronco, especially because Ford is facing serious trouble trying to supply all of the hard tops in the first place.
It is likely a fact that Ford didn’t expect the hard top to be so difficult to source and they can’t change the design at this point as that would likely further delay all of the 2-door Broncos.
How to Remove A Bronco Soft Top?
There are three different things you can do if you want more air in your soft-top Bronco. You can partially remove the roof, you can open the soft top fully, or remove it completely.
If you want to partially remove the roof, be sure to check out these instructions. If you want to open the soft top fully, check out these instructions. Lastly, if you want to open everything up and remove the soft top from the car completely, be sure to check out these instructions.
How to Remove a Bronco HardTop?
Removing the hard top is a bit more complicated as removing the hard top shouldn’t be something you do as often as removing the soft top.
The good thing is that Ford will supply you with all the tools necessary to remove the top, but removing it does require you to do a bit of manual labor.
