|jkjeeper06||I'd say 6" is a max. Maybe a little less if its wet snow. It's not hard to just knock some off with a push broom. I've seen ppl put a sheet of plywood on top before too. I didn't like the looks of that. Especially if its windy|

I live in Groton, CT and during the storm this year I saw a few Wranglers with bent/broken soft top frames from the 24+ inches or so of snow in my apartment complex. Obviously that much snow is rare, but you should at least have a plan in place to deal with that kind of accumulation.
I got my Jeep with a hard top and bought the Bestop Supertop NX for the summer.
Congrats on the new Jeep!

I have had 4 - 5 inches of heavy snow on it without issue, and that was before the bow was included with the tops. I don't really worry about it....
I use the Bestop window cleaner, it works great...

As for the rear windows, in winter I hose em off at the coin-op carwash every so often, mainly to get the salt off (and to clean off the undercarriage, as well). In the spring I clean em well with some stuff called Novus plastic polish: NOVUS Plastic Polish
I clean the soft top fabric with Aerospace 303, which both cleans and protects it from UV damage. Then I take the whole thing off for the summer...
Amazon.com: 303 aerospace protectant
I also use the 303 for anything plastic; bumpers, trim, interior. Great stuff.

A few inches of snow wont hurt it. The back window scratches easily. I was careful to only spray it off, at first. After it got scratched up anyway, Im not so careful anymore.
As far as washing, the preferred method is to have a scantily clad college cheerleader do it at one of those roadside fundraisers.

Soft Top questions
Hey, Im sure there are a bunch of posts regarding the softops but I just had a few questions regarding it. Firstly, how durable is the soft top. I live in CT and we get quite a bit of snow. Is it a bad idea to let a few inches of snow accumulate on it? Also what should I use to clean the rear plastic windows? And my last question is how should I go about washing the outside of the jeep?
PS I bought my first jeep a few weeks ago. Bought a 13 sport manual trans. Traded in a honda civic
