Hard top, soft top, no matter what model of Jeep Wrangler you own you know that Jeeps need to be winterized. Changing weather brings on changing ways to drive your Jeep. You don’t want to be cold when the really cool weather strikes.
Jeeps are rugged and really outdoor friendly, however, you do need to maintain your ride to keep it ready to roll. From floors to seats and everything in between, it’s time to weatherize and winterize your Jeep. Take care of your Jeep and your Jeep will take care of you in all the seasons.
Whether you live in Maryland, Pennsylvania, or other East Coast states, you know how gruesome the weather can be. At times, it’s unbearable and miserable, yet other times, you just want to get out there and play in the snow!
Here’s the short list of ways to winterize your Jeep Wrangler. Lavishly live life out loud and get ready for rain, sleet, slush, and snow.
To Winterize Your Jeep Wrangler
As an owner of a Jeep, I know there are things we need to do to keep it at its best for all seasons. These winterizing tips will help you with the season of winter.
The ways to winterize your Jeep Wrangler are just a springboard. You can always do more or do less. Remember, car ownership is a privilege. Rugged is as rugged does and care goes a long way! Get ready to sled, ski, hunt, and trail blaze this winter.
Take care of your Wrangler so that when you are ready to head out the door for some fun in the winter weather, it’s ready to be your best companion.
Floors & Cargo Space
Floor liners will keep the slushing to a minimum, and keep the elements off of your direct floor. Remember, once winter is done, it’s back to Spring. Naturally, you want the interior of the vehicle to look nice right?
Add in a cargo liner too so you can toss your stuff in the back and not worry about it sloshing up the inside (sleds, shovels, windshield scrapers, and brushes, etc.)
Soft Tops or Hard Tops
No need to take off the soft top during the brutal winter months. You won’t find much of a difference in the heating with the hard top or the soft top.
Do keep the Mopar Zipper Lube on hand just in case those zippers give you a bit of a hard time. So no matter your preference soft or hard top just be prepared to keep them lubed and check the seals.
Scraping vinyl (the soft top) can eventually lead to scratches. Hardtops during the winter lend themselves more to ski carrying on the top of the vehicle rather than strapped to the back.
Jeep heaters are amazing, so pick your top and live with it!
Keep Engine Cool
Make sure to keep the Jeep filled at the proper level (topped off) with Anti-freeze. Thereby, keeping the engine running cool in the summer and warm in the winter. As part of your 3 steps to winterizing your Jeep Wrangler, I think this one is the most important.
