Hard top to soft top advice?

Have a 2000 tj with a hard top that I painted and tinted the windows but I really want a soft top. Will I regret selling my hard top to get a soft top especially heading into wintertime?

Only you will ever truly know that. Personally, I feel that my hardtop is super valuable in the winter enough to store it all year long. But I have only one winter with hardtop use and we get very little snow down here.

When I ran a soft top one full winter, the only part that bothered me much was the inability to scrape the ice from the windows without scratching and or breaking the hard cold plastic.

Otherwise, the actual driving experience with the soft top had a few more drafts and it was a little harder to maintain heat in the vehicle, but it was not that bad.
