Start the jeep, turn the heater on and let it sit for a while to heat up and defrost the windows (if you have a good heater), or if you don't I guess you could use a hair dryer [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Whatever you do, do NOT tap the windows with a snow scraper. If it is too cold out, that scraper will punch a hole right through the plastic. I have seen that happen several times.

Splashing water on them will work, too. It doesn't have to be warm water unless it's really cold out.
