Missouri Bound ...not too sure if it's a good idea to bend frozen plastic...

YJTom If you decide you want a hard top pm me. I live in boise and was going to put mine on craigslist next week. It's tan and in pretty good shape.

Xpress Mine works fine on the cold nights, but then again I have never been out when it was FREEZING cold...

Probably helps to have doors that seal too..

As for ice build up on the windows... Why not just unzip the front and break the ice off by bending them?

DamnBigPapa Northern idaho .... Id say hard top, or hard top, or possibly the hard top.

Missouri Bound The soft top is OK heat wise....but it's the plastic windows that have a problem with ice and snow. When you try to scrape them you usually scratch them....not the biggest issue, but still an issue.

VHunter It really depends on how drafty your jeep is. On mine the soft top is fine to about 0 any thing below that I need a winter coat. If the temps are below 0 I'm wearing a winter coat anyway so it isn't a big deal.

stimpy If you can get your hands on a cheap hard top then go for it. If you can't then a soft top can handle the winter. Just be careful because if its old it may become brittle. The stock heater should keep you nice and toasty but be smart and carry a couple of blankets and a candle just in case. When I lived in upstate New York I had a hard top and my friend had a soft top, both worked out fine and we never froze.

Go hard or go soft?

I have a soft top on my 95 YJ. How does the soft top do in the winter time? I live in North Idaho in the mountains so I'm a bit worried about keeping the heat in the Jeep. Is the hard top worth all that money? This is the first Jeep Ive owned so I'm just learning the in and outs.
