Soft top in winter

Post  TMO84 on 10/11/2013, 6:35 pm

Gearing up for my first New England winter with my 2013 JKU soft top. I've read the obvious - don't scrap or rattle the soft top windows when frozen/covered in snow. So what should I do to get off ice and snow? Let it melt? Turn on the heater full blast and wait? Are there any tools, brushes, etc. I can use to get the snow and ice off before work?

Thanks

The amount of ice on the side windows is going to be approximately zero, because they're vertical. It doesn't really accumulate there. Also, you don't really need to see out any of them except the back one, usually once when you back out of your driveway. I used a typical snow brush all last winter, just the brush, not the ice scraper, and it was fine. Use the ice scraper on glass only. afro
