Heya Neighbor!! I have nver had any trouble with a soft top in winter here in RC,SD.

Snowmageddon, as you called it...



And, our first big snow from last fall... hehe



Seriously, I had a YJ with a soft top when I lived in Minn years ago. Never had any trouble with down to -13 not counting windchill.

And last shot of why I insist on living here...

Palmer Creek Road. Just past Mt Rushmore. First left after Mt Rushmore KOA and Palmer Gulch Resort.

Hwy 16 to the Keystone turn, Through Keystone, up and over Mt Rushmore, then, Take the first left after the KOA. There are some hiking trailheads out there.

That is one of the nice things about the Bestop.....Frameless....it comes with EVERYTHING...all you need is a Jeep either TJ or JK and than order the correct one (top).....you get everything, flip back header bar, door surrounds, and tailgate bar with clips, and a support bar for the front portion over front seats, and it is Bestop...I will not bash anyone else for their choice, but in my mind there is a Reason Jeep has used Bestop for OEM tops for so many years. I have only ever had Bestop and never had a complaint about Bestop products....and haven't seen to many complaints on the Forums other than the first few months of a "new product"...............Good Luck!!

Good to know. Just can't find anyone who sells this top for that price.
