This looks very nice. I hope it works with the Bronco Raptor.

Appears it should work fine with the Raptor. Niece has one of these for her hardtop wrangler and runs it all summer, it's quick and easy.

I spoke to Bestop about the Sunrider. The black twill was their recommended color. Said it matched the Bronco the best and has a lifetime warranty. They also said you can't remove the hard panel above the passengers when this is installed and they also offer a military discount. This is my favorite top so far. I will probably wait until I have my Raptor before I order one.

I ordered the Bestop Sunrider earlier this week. I will post some pics when it gets here. They give 10% military discount so I saved about 100 dollars. It was $980.99 shipped.

It's not the soft top. It's just the soft top that goes above the driver and passenger. I will retain the rest of the hard top. I have spoke to them several times about this specific top and they stated it would fit. The bar in the middle does not interfere with the sunrider top. I am sure the regular soft top will not work but this is totally different.

interesting, the told me that the BR was wider so the soft top wouldn't fit, you would think this wouldn't either.... look forward to hearing if it works.... send pics please.

I will post pics as soon as I get it installed. The Raptor uses the same hard top as the standard Bronco. The only difference in the two, top wise, is the Raptor having the extra bar in the middle that would affect the soft top.

I agree, this is kind of odd, I only know what they've stated, they didn't say it was the bar, it was width suposedly..... you think a modified bar would fix the problem if that was the issue..

The Bestop center halo bracket is the only thing that needs to be installed differently than a standard 4 door Bronco. In the first picture I have the rear passenger panel unlatched and have slightly lifted the panel so I can get to the two screws that need to be removed on the rear panel. This is because the Bronco Raptor center roof bar, which is not on a regular Bronco, gets in the way. After you remove the two screws from the rear panel go ahead and attach the Bestop center halo bracket and tighten it down. This is left loose on the regular Bronco but must be tightened here so you can close the rear roof panel. The rest of the install instructions are just like a standard 4 door Bronco. This is very easy to install. So far it has been very nice and not much louder if any than the hard top panels.
