The reason I ask is that I'm a 30 year PADI Instructor. I could load tanks underneath and have gear on top. The gear can get heavy and I hate putting the bags on top of the tanks (without separation). Nothing worse to find that the tanks shifted/rolled in transport only to damage gear in the bags.
I understand the concern but until I get something from Ford that I can latch onto I would be guessing and that is not what you want...

This is a new item not like anything we have had before so that I can make an educated statement on the weight holding capability...

If I find something out I will post it here...that part of the question is still in my to be answered file...

Albert @Granger Ford , while you are asking, is there any information on the weight capacity of the Cargo Management System top shelf?
Page 21 of eSource Book. Knew I saw it somewhere

"Cargo Management System has five configurations
that may include a pullout table designed to support
up to 30 lbs. (in shelf mode it can hold up to 50 lbs.)"

I want to know if I am getting the cargo management system on my First Edition because it is not even an option to select nor listed in the specifications section. Anyone figure this out yet?

Thank you for finding the details. 50 lbs. should be fine for my dry gear. After diving, the wet stuff goes in a tote on a hitch hauler.

It's an option when you order --- First Edition only has 3 options you can add: cargo management system, engine block heater, roof rail crossbars.

Okay, When I reserved back on July 14th there was no options other than the tent. Thanks.

I put a call into the dealer last week (plus an email) to add to the cargo system but I never heard back. Once more, they seem to have ZERO interest in selling the Bronco. It seems to be a pain in the a__ for them to answer any questions, unless you are interested in buying something off the lot. I've had this problem with two dealers now -- one that flat out did not want to "deal with the Bronco." I hate car dealers. To be honest, it's a real turn off for the vehicle. Tomorrow, I'm calling Ford HQ to complain.

I wish Granger Iowa was closer, for both of us. But it looks like it is as far away from there as for me (Seattle) though with fewer mountains between.

It took over an hour, but I was FINALLY able to work my way up the Ford Corporate ladder to get some answers.

Here is what I found out: Once you have a "reservation," then a confirmed "order," the dealer will eventually have you come in to "finalize" the order. At that time, you can change / add anything you want. I was told you could even change the color, although some colors will delay the order. Not sure why that is? I was told the buyer will be shown an image of the finalized vehicle with all accessories and options ordered. I am assuming they mean a computer generated image, not the actual vehicle. It is very important that you communicate with the individual who is handling your order at the dealer to make sure they have your correct contact information. They could not provide a time frame for the finalization process.

Glad you were able to get some answers! I'd like to purchase some accessories as well, but I can't pull the trigger to finalize the order until I receive some info on the accessories or at least a description about them. Build & Price website offers no details/specs on the accessories and no dealer or the Ford Marketing Program Headquarters reps have been able to help as they themselves don't have much knowledge/info on them either. I'm kinda stuck in limbo at the moment since I can't justify spending $1k+ on accessories without having any info on them.

That is what we are having people do just get the B Sport and then we will get the cargo management for them...

The only problem with that scenario is it cost just a bit more as an accessory....
My FE Sport that was scheduled today had the cargo management system on it.

Well that should answer one of the big questions concerning the cargo mngt. system and whether or not that would hold up the production.
