Soft top storage

Is it safe to store my soft top in my uninsulated shed? The temp in the winter will get below freezing for extended periods of time. I have it hanging up, the windows are unrolled and hanging as well except the rear window is draped over the top.
Thanks

Yeah it should be. Just like leaving it on the Jeep except without the snow.

I would unroll the windows and lay them flat and make sure to get it good and warm before putting it back on.

As long as you don't bend or move them while they're cold they should be fine.

One tip I use is to get a roll of plastic wrap (the kind they use for shipping) at home depot or wherever, and wrap the rolled up top to keep dust and floor grime off. The windows I keep flat, stored in a warm place in the soft bag that came with the Freedom panels.

Watch out for mice chewing tunnels through it

I have it wrapped in a tarp and the windows are hanging flat against the wall with a blanket over and between them. I like the idea of the plastic wrap though, mice shouldn't be a problem but squirrels might be, maybe I'll look for some extra space in my basement to make sure.
Thanks everyone.

I brought ours into the house and put it in the spare room with the windows lying flat under our bed. It's just for a few months and easy to move if need be.
