So we are about to get snowed on and I'm finally caving and putting the windows back on my soft top. (98 tj). I know it's hard when it's cold but now it's impossible. I almost broke the zipper on the first and the other 2 won't go.
I'm considering tarping it though this first snow and next week we may have a 50 degree day. Still may be too cold though.
(Don't have access to a friends garage)

Toss a tarp over, let her heat up and put some Vaseline or silicone on the zipper.

Or find somebody who's got a garage and a space heater. I installed my ORH soft top last winter in February, teens outside. Ran an oil heater (plug-in kind) in my garage overnight to get it good and toasty. Still a beast to get the top on, but doable.

Well...idk how this would work outside but the two times that I've been in a situation similar to this I've used a hair dryer. I'm sure it does just wonders for the windows though..

Bring the windows inside for a couple of hours and try it again. I re-installed my soft top (had bikini and windjammer on) outside in the snow the year before last. I had to do it that way and use needle nose pliers to help me get the windows zippered.

Use a hair dryer or just stick them in place with the velcro and run the heater in the Jeep until you get things warm inside it. I just put the soft top back on after three months of running topless, sigh...
