Is this your first winter with the jeep? Because unless you have your heart set on a hard top I'd give it one winter. I drive with a soft top and half doors all year and its not bad at all. Once the heat kicks in its like an oven in there. And with mods I'm a firm believer that a winch can easily make up for any short comings in off road mods your jeep may have. That's at least what I'm saving for.
