I live in Michigan and will be sporting a soft top for the foreseeable future… which means snow, ice, and temperature swings between the cabin and outdoors as the Bronco heats up.

Is there anything I should do to prep the top? I’ve run my Wrangler soft top through 1 winter without issue… so perhaps not?

Following, i'm farther up, and was wondering if it needed "prepping" like a tent or something. Sounds funny maybe, but it will be my first experience with a soft top.

Haven't prepped my jeep soft top in the 5yrs of winter here in CO. When the snow dumps and piles on my top if my jeep is outside the garage, I will periodically brush it off the top.

i prep the underside of my jeep, but not the soft top itself.

I am going to assume that by the lack of firm answers, that most must just not do anything. Thanks all.

Whatever you do, don’t “wax it”!
