First Winter Coming... Does the Soft Top Hold Snow Okay?
Ok, so I have never owned a convertible or a Jeep with a soft top before this year. I am a bit concerned about the weight of snow on the soft top.
Last year we got over 2 feet of snow in one storm. It set a 100+ year standing record. Now, originally I am from New England, so snow doesn't trouble me, but what are the experiences of others?
I see how much the fabric moves just with wind while I am driving. The poles for the bonnet feel kinda thin too. I don't feel like it would hold much weight at all, so I am really giving some thought to buying a used hard top for the winter months.
Should I hunt down a used hard top or are these rag tops ok with some snow on them? If I let the snow pile 8" - 9" deep on the soft top while I am sleeping, am I going to need a new top?
