You live on the coast. The term you're thinking of is RAIN.

whiteyj Sounds like we'll ride this out just fine. Much easier than pulling all the channel off!

somemoore If it's not your daily driver you should be fine - certainly not worth investing in a hard top for the few weeks where it's cold enough to make a difference - that money could be much better used elsewhere on your Jeep

Kurogo Just make sure you Armor-All it and you should be fine.

skeeter You won't have any problem, where you are you might see 4 or 5 days of snow.
I used to sleep with the windows cracked and engine off during the winter when I was based out of Sumner and Tacoma. Winter over there is very mild.

ETA, I went through a winter over here in my YJ with the softtop and had no problem staying warm.

You can, but no one does. It's traditional to let it blow off onto the cars behind you once you hit 45 miles per hour.

Geoff@Bestop What's a "little east" of Seattle mean? Redmond? Issaquah? Or further up where it really snows?

I lived in Seattle and Redmond for 12 years, and had soft tops off and on through those years. I was never really too cold. But a few days I wasn't too happy either.

I always had more problems with crappy windshield wipers and defrosters that worked about as well as having my dog pant on the windshield. But I was in old-school CJs. I had to buy those hair dryer fans. Which don't work either.

Then I bought a Subaru for daily work.

4point Where I live we get quite a bit of snow. Its the heavy wet snow common to the pacific coast. We call it Sierra Cement. It has not effected my soft top at all, but I do knock it off constantly just to be sure.

WA Winters w/ soft top

So just how bad is it going to be with just a soft top up here during the winter? I moved up in February and really haven't seen anything that warrants going through the effort of converting to a hard top.

The YJ isn't my daily driver but do want to be able to run her into work once in a while and weekends.
