another Youtube video for those of us who haven't had enough, I liked this video it seems honest and straight forward like most of their videos.

More pieces means more spots for leaking also and I didn't consider that, it was something about the bronco I initially liked.The aftermarket industry could not fix Wrangler’s leaky roofs for the first 77 years.
Bronco’s removable top is even more extreme: it is much larger, and contains many more separate pieces.
My hunch is that wide open roof is going to remain Bronco’s Achilles heel, even after Ford addresses the current manufacturing issues.
I think Tommy said he tried silicone and a few other tricks and it still rattles a bit, granted he may not be a professional silicone installer, I was thinking some pieces of felt would fix the rattles but I'm pretty sure that would cause leaksThey can fix em, silicone baby
I also own a 97 Ford F-250 light duty (gas powered 5.4L Dana 60 rear axle)A little story, back in 80s, a neighbors daughter had a Camaro with a sun roof, was still under warranty and was always leaking. So she brought it back to Mr Badwrench, on the 4th or 5th time they used clear silicon and sealed it shut rather replacing the gaskets and checking the drains, sometimes they clog. My brother told her to bring it back and insist they fix it correctly. Not sure if she did or not.
I wasnt refering to apply the silcone spray, that may eliminated squeaks, I use formula 303 on all my cars on the door, t-top, convertible and wrangler gaskets.
I agree the hardtop as designed on the Bronco will be problematic.
But remember at Ford they circle the problem
I forgot to mention the truck only has 136,000ish miles and a new ac and new trans but no real other issues, I rarely drive it anymore unless I need to tow a trailer for work. I did have the dealer replace the spark plugs, they didn't want to, the service writer was telling me how "easy" it was. I responded with "if you mess up the heads then you get to fix it, if I mess them up, I'm in big trouble"Only busting on the Ford guys. All of em have issues and the more complex the more stuff to go wrong. Of course go on you tube and look at the neglect and stupid things people do.
How is the 5.4 with the cam phasers? We had a fleet of super Duties and boy those could drink gas, work for a Utility. Now have some Gm and Rams.
