Snow/Weight Issue half top

While I was away last week doing thisAttachment 34510

South Bend IN (where my jeep was parked) got thisAttachment 34509(somewhere between 10-and 36 inches of snow)

The back off the halftop was fine. When I got to the Jeep last night it was after 11pm and the guy who "watched" my ride while I was gone had already cleaned all the snow off. (I didn't ask how or why ) but it was great that the weight of the snow caused no issues to the half top.

Thanks for posting this. I get questions all the time on how much snow a top can handle. It's frustrating, because it's impossible to answer: some snow is really wet and heavy, some is freeze-dried and powdery, etc.

So comments like yours help.

I was in Key West this week, and got back to Denver late last night. Went from 72 degrees to zero and snowy. Totally sucks. I need a Mojito.
