Hi Roy,
I'm looking at a 2019 JLUR with the sky top. I was wondering how you make out clearing snow off of it and how the top is wearing. Hubby wants the Hard Top.
Thanks,
Catherine, Jamestown, RI
Just had a brief snow / freezing rain blast here in Virginia. I have a long handled brush from when I had a truck and the snow brushed off pretty easily. It warmed up enough on the drive home to open and there were no issues.

First Wrangler, but not first time driving a vehicle with no top or doors. I'm still driving on the first tank of gas from the dealer, and I've had the top open more than closed. I'm a pretty dour guy, but after opening the top for the first time I couldn't keep the grin off my face.
My wife thinks I'm crazy for having the top open and windows down below 30°, but with the heated seats and steering wheel I'm just enjoying the open air. Also fun to see the bewildered looks from hardtop wranglers when there's snow on the ground and my top is open.

Yes, I get the stares too. My open Jeep record is 21 degrees. I see Jeeps closed up all winter long here. People look at me like I'm nuts with Jeep open. I love the cold so it's fine with me. We have now had the 2nd wettest first 2 months of the new year in 122 years so it's been raining a lot. I have new Half-doors waiting to use if it stops raining.

The Northeast has been low on snowfall this winter. March outlook my bring colder temps and snow. They say March might be new February. Never know now with Mother nature. 2nd wettest start of the year here in 122 years.

I’ve had no issues with my top this winter, and other than one day where we had freezing rain and then snow over night, a snow brush gets it off easily.

This roof makes me grin like crazy. I also discovered if you accidentally bump the open button when driving to fast the dash tells you you’re going to fast, and won’t open.

Sky one touch is the best of all the roof options, you can enjoy the open air anytime the conditions are good even if it’s only for a minute or a mile. No planning. No missed enjoyment!
Yeah I currently have the hard top and am trying to decide if I want to do the one touch next year. While I love my hard top I’ve yet to go totally topless in the 4 years I had my Jeep because of having to store the top and making sure there isn’t going to be any rain! I purchased the Sunrider for hardtop and love that I can just open and close it at a moments notice! I mean for me the reason I bought my Jeep was that open air feeling of the top open and the sun in my face!

I wasn't sure about getting it. Thought about a roof rack and what if I had problems. Wife talked me into it. Best decision ever. You can lock your car up secure with the touch of a button. Don't like the sun mid drive, close it. Raining? Close it. I have mine open almost all the time, but if I park the jeep is secure and if it rains I'm fine. If the sun is beating on my kid I can close it halfway or maybe it's cooking me. Adjust as you drive. Go for it.

All of this! I’ve had mine open since March. The few times I’ve closed it when driving, I can count on one hand. Almost all of them were rainy days.
