Hard top vs Soft top

Hey guys just a question about what you run in the winter currently I have a hard top only because I ripped my soft top and I was wondering does anybody run just the soft top in the winter? Because having to go from no top to hard top is a pain.

You can get just new fabric on quadratec to fix your top. I ran just my soft top my first winter. After that I really wanted a hard top. Not having a garage to use, I was always nervous about letting too much snow pile up on the soft top so I would wake up in the middle of the night to broom it off when we would get a good amount overnight. It won't rip it, but it'll prematurely stretch it. I also wanted to put skis and snowboards on my roof and I needed a hard top for that. It's also much quieter and since you can't put the top down in the winter, I didn't like dealing with the noise. If I had to choose only 1, I'd probably choose the soft top. If there is money to have both, I definitely would
