MarkNog If its about 30 out, instead of using the defroster while im warming the jeep up, i scape the windshield (if needed) and put the heat on max, point the 2 middle vents toward the back and let the heat do its thing.

Works like a charm!

crafty Going back to my Maryland days on this one......... throw a big beach towel over the back window and over the uppers. Walk out, pull off the towels and you have no ice or frost.

CiDZillA I ran a soft top for years on my 98 TJ and never had an issue. Like other said above me, the heater works great and usually the ice is gone after 5 mins or so.

I have a factory Freedom Top. (2dr 2012 JK)

OK, thanks for the tips - I was guessing that any attempt to remove ice would destroy the window.

^This. The heater is like a blast furnace. It will melt in no time. Until it does, use your mirrors.

If you use a soft top in the winter ...

What do you do about frost/ice in the rear window. You can't scrape it, so do you just live with it? I just put on a Trektop and am thinking about selling my hardtop. But, we get frost in the morning a lot...
