winterizing soft top

Hi All,
Just your friendly neighborhood devildoc asking another jeep newbie question.

I plan on running my wrangler all winter with the soft top on. Would like a hard top but can't spend the cash right now.

Anyway, what is the best product(s) to use on the top to winterize it??? Armor All, Meguiar's stuff????

As always, many thanks for your wisdom and patience

Any convertible top conditioner will work on it. I like 303 Aerospace protectant. Bestop makes one too, as do others. Anything safe for vinyl should be fine. I don't like Armorall, it leaves a residue that runs down the paint after rain/snow/washing....

Bumping this one 5 years later... Any new products on the market that are improved for winterizing a soft top?

Anyone have a process they do if they leave the soft top on all winter? Maybe a particular treatment method or something?

So far I haven't seen any new products specifically for winterizing soft tops.
It's my first season using 303 Fabric Tough Guard and just now, after 2 months, it's letting water/ice stick just a bit.

Just gotta recoat and let the mind at ease.

Really like the product too. No streaks, shiny spots, and doesn't smell horribly when applying. Just don't get it on paint or vinyl.
