I'm looking for a soft top for my 1994 Bronco, the web site I went to last is out of buisness. I'm looking for the soft top that takes the place of the hard top, not the bed cover.

ok, thought you wanted a top for CAB's HARD TOP and showed that old STC (Specialty Top Company) pic; STC is out of business now
Jeff's Bronco Graveyard Full Top Fasttrac Zipper for 80-91; Jeff's design is a copy of the old STC Full Top
That's why I had a major EDIT...lol

They list it up to 91 due to lack of rear seat shoulder belt legality...
Here is something that Soft-Tops.com posted on their web site awhile ago...
Legality Statement & Possible Work-Around for Rear Seat Belts in 92-96; "...In some states it is a requirement that a seatbelt is worn by all occupants. The lap portion of your belt will still be fuctional. The additional strap acts as a double strap, when you disconnect the roof anchor. Many Bronco enthusiasts install the added safety of a rollbar. The seat belt roof anchor can then be mounted to the roll bar. This allows the shoulder portion to remain functional. Please check with your local law enforcement for specific state and local regulations..." miesk5 Note; this info has been removed from their web site

I thought it was mostly the legality of the soft top canceling out the third brake light on 92+
92 XLT with 5.0 bored .10 over flat top pistons, Rebuilt E40D, Warn premium manual hubs, 32x11.50 Dunlop Radial Mud Rovers, Flowtech headers, no cats, pulled "check engine light" 130 amp alternator yeap that sums her up pretty well.


If it aint broke fix it till it is!

yep, it's that too, but Soft-Tops.com chose @ that time to mention only the rear belt issue.

This is what T-dogg did for the 3rd Brake Light Mod in a 96 http://www.superford...s=17255#content

Others have mtd that 3rd br lt on outside swingaway tire carrier, etc.

Is the third break light that big a deal in other areas?

I've been a public safety officer for 20 years (combined fire/police) we don't stop people for 3rd brake lights and if you have a lap belt your golden as far as I'm concerned.

I strapped in my kids car seats so there buclkled in and attached lap belts. I'm ordering the soft top and the only way i'm going to insatll a 3rd brake light is to cover up a rusty spot on the bottom of my tailgate.

LC,
In our area of NJ, we have a State Police Area HQ a few miles away and a few troopers are assigned full time the State's Seat Belt Use Program. The Program has intensified after the Governor was critically injured in the crash of his official vehicle; he apparently was not wearing a seatbelt. A few friends who go soft top in summer have been stopped because the trooper saw the "tell-tale" sign of no shoulder belt. This goes on to them looking over the Bronco and finding no high mtg brake light either.
So, I suppose it depends on the area of the country and the existence of a vehicle/passenger safety detail or highway truck inspection stop where some pals have been pulled over for no light.

But you can drive a Bronco a couple years older that wasnt equiped with shoulder belts or a third brake light and get no ticket? Seems kinda fishy. If I had the shoulder strap seatbelts I would definatly get a rear seat out of an older Bronco where the seatbelts are only attached to the seat for when I roll topless. Thats one of the reasons I built an 89 and swapped to the 92+ style frontend. Best of both worlds
89 fullsize with 95 front end swap.
460 C6 D60 front, 10.25 rear 4.10 gears
3 inch body lift, 4.5 inch lift from 1 ton swap.

Yard, on the first part,. Redwagon posted following awhile ago elsewhere; "...Federal Motor Vehicle Safety standard no 208 Passenger Cars, except convertibles (Effective 12/11/89), Convertibles (Effective 9-1-91), Multipurpose Passenger Vehicles and Trucks with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 4,536 kg (10,000 lbs.) or less (Effective 9-1-91) Shall be equipped with integral lap and shoulder belts at every forward facing, outboard designated seating position..."

The high mounted 3rd brake light is also covered by a FED law; I know that this law isn't strictly enforced throughout the states, but it is here.

This why you won't see later year Broncos listed in any soft top company ads or line items.
NJ needs revenue, so...
