Yeas, installing a ST in cold weather is a pain, you need to put in your garage with a heater and wait until it is good and pliable.

Depends - original soft top with truck (if it's still even in one piece) yes - expect quite a bit of necessary patience in order to re-install it without ripping it. Badger top - takes me about 8 minutes to put on by myself - 10 minutes if I'm doing it for the Winter time (i.e. I take more time to make sure everything is tight). Fitting it to the windshield header bar is the biggest PITA because I have lights on the rollbar up there, but otherwise is fairly painless - the last little belt rail piece that is behind the tire carrier on the rear passenger side is the hardest part.

Really not enough effort to dismiss a ST.
