Mass, thats a different story, you need that rear window clear, mass has the sneakiest state troopers I've ever seen.

thetoughguy I have not had issues at all with the rear window fogging up with my factory top.

Atthehop Why do you need to see out of the rear window. Do you see on on a truck or bus. Learn to use your mirrors, pay attention to everything around you and you won't worry about the rear window fogging up.

What is that supposed to mean? haha.

Rhode Island winter was fine for me. No problem with fogging and my soft top wrangler stays hotter and warms up faster than my dodge dakota ever did.

richp usually there is enough air moving through the soft top to keep rear window fogging to a minimum LOL......
I've never noticed an issue with the rear fogging unless I'm stopped and fogging it up for some reason with some heavy ahhhh, never mind...

q on soft tops in new england/cold weather

hey guys. i've been reading a lot of hard top vs. soft top threads on here and everyone seems to have their own opinion on what's better. one thing i never see come up though is whether or not there is any issue with the rear window fogging up in the winter.

i know most, if not all, convertibles sold up here (soft and hard top) have a glass rear window with the defogger lines built in. do any of the available soft tops for the tj have the defogger built in? if not, does the rear window fog/clear up quickly while driving?

i know when i get in my car in the morning anytime between late november and march all my windows start getting foggy, so if the windows don't clear up quickly then i'll need to make sure i have a ht before winter. thanks for any advice.
