Welcome to the forum! 🍻 I've seen a number of members here that seem interested in soft top options, hopefully you'll get a reply soon.

I called and talked to bestop and they told me flat out the top from the regular bronco will not fit the bronco raptor and they have no plans to make one...... call them.... the more of us who express interest the more likely they are to change their mind.

thanks. I'm not really interested in the soft top as a keeper but had considered selling my hardtop and replacing it with an ADV one-piece hardtop. I'd posted up a quick ad on CL and there are many soft top folks out there interested in buying my hardtop (and taking the soft top in trade as I'd need something in the interim given that the ADV units are 8-12 weeks out.)

I purchased a factory soft top with all of the hardware on eBay For my 2022 Bronco Raptor. It fits perfectly with no issues.

I was recently told the Bestop sunrider I bought would not fit as well. There is a lot of misinformation in the various forums. The sunrider fit perfectly. One step had to be changed slightly do to the bar in the middle. This bar in the middle is the only thing that could affect a possible soft top install. Check out the instructions and look at the bar and see if it does. More than likely it does not.

this would be a big deal for raptor owners.... can you post a few more pics? what issue did you have with the raptor brace, how did you work around?

beat me to it by a couple days. My Brap showed up today. I have a deal with a local guy to swap my factory hardtop for his soft top (and cash of course)...was planning to swap it out then order an ADV top for it...

How much did the soft top cost you if you don't mind my asking?

Fuhrius, Congratulations! I know you're excited. I love my BRaptor. I paid $1,500 for the top plus shipping on eBay.
I am, indeed.
Yours is also the first BRaptor I've seen with the 'heritage' badges on it. I bought some for my FE but never got around to installing them...I do plan to put them on the BRap...just not sure where. MY FE was Cactus Gray...great color, especially if you're trying to bring a little of the heritage look to it.

I received a message from someone and I think that there is potentially some confusion about soft tops that I feel I should clarify in this forum.

To my knowledge there are technically two "Ford" soft tops. One that's made by a company named Webasto who also makes the hard top. The Webasto soft top is ONLY available by ordering a soft top Bronco from the factory. The second soft top is the soft top that Ford sells as an option to purchase individually. This soft top is made by BesTop

The Webasto top fits the Raptor 100% as I can confirm and you can see in the photo above. Any TSBs that Ford has issued related to soft top issues with the BRaptor spare tire I believe are related to the BesTop that you can buy at the counter.

The bottom line... to my knowledge if you want a soft top that fits the BRaptor you will need to find someone that wants to sell or trade their soft top that came on a true "Soft Top" Bronco.

Options are definitely limited for the placement of the badges on the BRaptor. I've had 24 early broncos and just love the Heritage badge style. So I had to put it somewhere.

Good to know..... I just tried calling best top again on this and they are adement theirs will not fit....... in fact when I asked what the physical difference is that seems to interfere, the call suddenly dropped......
