    Default Soft top to hard top

    How hard is it to convert from a soft top to a hard top? Has anyone had to do it? Just asking cause i have to go to Milwaukee in July and heard that soft tops do not do good in the snow.

    If you are just wanting to put a hard top on there that is as easy as putting it on there and installing some bolts. If you are talking about setting up the washer and defrost, that is a bit more work.

    It's not that soft tops don't do well in the snow, I just think you have to be more vigilant in ensuring that you don't get too much accumulation on the top. That is just a matter of weight at that point. Also with a soft top, if it is frozen it would be possible to break plastic windows or even split the fabric with the wrong move.

    ^^^ Then just keep checking here and on places like Craigslist. Keep your eyes open and you'll find a good deal. Personally $500 or less is a good deal.
