What temp does the soft top go on?
Hey everyone, this is my first spring time with my TJ and I have my hard top on and I was wondering what average temp do you with hard tops put your soft tops on?

Temps have less to do with it than the rain for me. When the rains slow down, and nice days are on the horizon, I pull the hard top.

I run the soft top year round...soft top comes off when it's warm enough to enjoy the weather.

I only have a soft top in the NE. Just don't unzip the windows in the vey cold.

x3 I run the soft top year round. Last year, I took it down when it hit 50 for the first time. At that temp, the top is a bitch to get back on.

Things go a lot easier if it's in the upper 60's or higher. Having it out in the sun helps a lot too.

Hard top comes off when the highs are a consistent 60˚ and up.

i think the book says 40 degrees.....i look it up one time for some reason but they are a pain to get on even if it it 50 degrees out.

Soft top is on from the end of November to early March. Besides that, bikini top to keep the sun off me. I love California.

I usually wait for a sunny day in the mid 60's or higher. Let the soft top sit out in the direct sun for a few hours to make it more pliable and youre good to go.

I only use my soft top, that has no windows when I need a rain protector when I didn't find time to get my hard top back on.
