Soft Top Winter storage location

Just removed my soft top for the winter season. Anyone have any comments about storage?

Over the winter up here it can get and stay to -20F for up to one month. Will the soft top survive storage inside an unheated garage? I am thinking of bundling the top with velcro straps then hang it from the roof rafters till needed in the Spring. I am planning on storing the side and back windows inside the house, using the OEM box they came in.

Storage should not be a problem, just don't move it too much or open it when it's cold.

That sounds like a good a plan as any. I think it will be fine.

The cold won't bother it. I keep mine on all winter.

Mine spends the winter under a bed in the spare room and windows cleaned and in the box layed out flat.

There are plenty of people on various JK forums that run the soft top year round in places like northern Minnesota and Alaska in temps up to -30F+. Your garage will be just fine.

Anyone tried leaving the windows rolled all winter? Seems like a bad idea, just trying to figure out what to do with them. They would be in the basement but having them rolled for 5 months seems like it might be a problem.
I didn't plan ahead enough to save the box.

Hang them from pants hangers with the clips on them... Or roll them. They'll be fine as long as you let them warm up and kind of unroll naturally when you're ready to reinstall them.
