It's New England so it's always a gamble but IMHO I would say we are good. Red Sox opener today so dammit it's gotta be spring.

CT here...way too early for topless unless you wear your heavy jacket and gloves......give it another 2-3 weeks.

..............and if I see a TJ in New England in June/July/August with a hardtop on I am not waving!!!

Same here, I only run a soft top here in NW NJ. Storing the hard top from my YJ was such a pain I would never buy a hard top ever again.

So tempted - still have my hardtop on. I have a soft top too but once the hard top comes off I never seem to get around to putting on the soft top on> Topless!!!

Long Island here. Just took swapped to the soft top last week. Although I did it in the garage with the propane heater on and it was over 70 degrees in there. Soft top went on nice and easy. I don't know how warm it is in New England now, but waiting for a warm day and do it in the sun will make the top stretch easier and make the install go smoother

I run my soft top year round here in Ct, the last few days i have had the sunrider open... just turn on your heater and wear a fleece and you are good to go...unless you are in Northern N.E. of course...

In a word, no. I don't own a hard top, my soft top serves me just fine.
Of course YMMV, and invariably will...

Threw my soft top on a week and a half ago. Been for a few shirt rides with the top down already.
