sevenservices thats what we do here in Michigan, I usually go out and start the jeep w/defrost on high about ten minutes before we have to leave. If your pushed for time, the tops of the side windows melt first and you can sit up tall and peak out the top edge at stop signs until its all gone. I also give a backhand tap to inside of the window to knock everything off as it starts to melt.

About a month ago my 12 y/o son had to spit (he was caughing sick...), he unzipped the corner and pulled it in to open the edge of his window and the plastic cracked about 3 inches in from the bottom. It was only 35 degrees out, surprised it did not crack on the 0 degree days but, they are getting old anyways.

I put on hard doors last week... but, winter was not to bad as long as we warmed 'er up in the morning before heading out.

inzgary Warm up the Jeep and give the windows a knock from the inside and it will all fall off. Just be easy on them because they are brittle in the cold.

Vanimal00000 I just blast the heat for 15 minutes before I leave and that usually takes care of most.

daggo66 If you try to scrape it off you can damage or even crack the windows. Just let the blast furnace of a heater melt the ice.

ice on film window glass?

My Jeep TJ has soft top and soft upper door windows. As I am new to these kinds of surfaces in winter snow and ice environments, what is the best approach to cleaning snow and ice from these surfaces? OR, will snow and ice even be an issue with this soft/plastic window surface? I'm hopeful that someone who lives in the high country can share their experiences in this area.
