    As you can see my poor baby needed a lot of work. The guy kept going on about how amazed the amount of filler there was on the back part of the roof. He said he also pulled several spots out with a stud puller. I went with the white rhino liner bc I personally like it and I am not planning on selling the vehicle.

    Yeah that looks great. I can't wait to see how it turns out long term. We have a couple we keep thinking that is the way to go.
    The bedliner can be thinned so it lays smoother as well so kind of looks more like the texture of the bronco topper than a truck roof.

    My understanding.....some roofs had ridges and some did not. I personally am not a fan and got lucky to not have them on mine.

    Well and some of us when we re-did our roofs ground down the ridges and got rid of them or used replacement metal depending on how bad it was again and got rid of the water holding ridges.

    Did you have to weld new fillers in?

    On one of the trucks I am pretty sure Erik did - probably the 1986. I know for the roof I worked on the most I ground down to the metal and while I kept some of the ridging, I made the bondo smooth where the caps meet so all of the water would drain off to the sides.

    We have an entire forums section on roof repairs and most of those threads have tons of pictures. I know mine do:

    If you are wondering about the ribs in the roof, there were 2 ways that they built 4 door broncos. Stretched broncos had flat roofs, and crew cabs with a bronco rear had ribbed roofs. I don't think there is an easy way to really get rid of them without reskinning the whole roof.
