Thank you that is very helpful. I’d surmise that the snow in snowy parts of CO is more significant on average than the places that I’m likely to go in upstate NY or New England. Here we are also more likely to experience freezing rain/ice than proper snow I would guess.On my first TJ I had a soft top only and it saw some pretty significant snow fall. Before I'd drive it, I'd brush the snow off the roof (not the windows, I was always worried about scratching the plastic) and never had a problem. I'm not sure if Colorado snow fall is comparable to east coast snowfall, but I wouldn't worry about it.
