We list Two different lift options below

 

 

1. The Electric Hardtop Lift System Pro’s and Cons:

 

Pros:

Hardtop Lift FactsYour hardtop stores just inches from the top of the ceiling! This is the best lift system that we offer. 100% fully operational by 1 person only! No risk of dropping your hardtop!
Mounts in 1 anchored location, versus 3 anchored locations you would need to install with the other versions. This makes installation faster and easier! Push button, fully electric, one person operated. Because the electric motor is located directly above your hardtop, you can lower it down back down into the, installed position, by yourself! One hand on the motor button, and then one hand on the top, so that you can position it back onto your Jeep! Easy pleasy – lemon squezzy!

Cons:

There are no cons to this product! This is 100%, the best lift system you can get. 1 person can operate the system. We suggest this lift system over all the other versions.

 

 

 

2. Brake Winch Hardtop Lift System Pros & Cons:

 

Pros:

No risk of dropping your hardtop! A 5:1 hand brake winch, makes it safe and easy to lift, and lower. One person can lift the hardtop off. Two people are suggested for lowering top back down to your Jeep.

Cons:

Hardtop Lift FactsYou might need two people to re-install your hardtop; When lowering the hardtop back into the installed position, you might need another person to twist your hardtop while lowering, so that your hardtop lands on the hardtop mounts that are on your Jeep. Mounts in 3 anchored locations, versus only 1 anchored location, with our Electric Motorized version. This makes the installation process a little longer. Also, because the rope travels from the top anchor location above your Jeep, across the ceiling to the top anchor location above your side wall, and then down to the side wall brake winch mount location, it gives your garage a little more of a ‘cluttered’ look. (same as our Manual Rope System) Although, it’s not bad…Our Electric Hardtop Lift System has a more clean looking installation, less installation anchor spots, and is easier to use.

 

 

What comes in the Hardtop Lift package?

Harness straps to hoist and hang your top & an Electric Motor with all the attachment brackets. Or, hand brake winch crank if you ordered the brake winch version.

How does the hoist attach to the Jeep Hardtop?

We use 3″ high quality MILITARY grade harness straps. This barnes cradle system is specifically designed for your Jeep! This insures that your top will be held efficiently, and most importantly, without damaging your hardtop.

Does the top swing when hanging? How precise does the car need to be under the hanging top for alignment back on to the car?

Yes, the top can swing. With the Electric Motor Winch, you simply use one hand to control the lifting button, and one hand to steady the top as it raises… if your hardtop does start to turn or sway. If your Hardtop does start to sway and move around, it will not fall off our lift system. Our lift systems are secure. If you are using the Brake Winch version, you will simply raise it slowly, and if it does start to sway or move, you will stop the lifting, grab control of the hardtop, then proceed. If you are using the rope version, it’s best to have another person help hold the top into position. If you are using our electric motor version, you can hold the top and move the hardtop up or down with your other hand. Of course, the electric motor version is the easiest! Again, your hardtop is secure, so you will not have to worry about it falling off!

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated since I have a one car garage and I have a garage door opener to work around. The garage isn’t very deep and the location of the top on the Jeep sits directly below the opener motor. I may need to offset the hoist to pass the rail of the opener or back the Jeep in and hang the top behind the opener.

You called it, in your last line when you said, “to back your Jeep in and hang the top behind the opener”. That’s your best option. If you were to hang the eye bolt anchor or Electric Motor Winch on the side of the garage door opener motor on the top ceiling, you would then have to be more careful with lifting and lowering the hardtop down to your vehicle. We do not suggest this, although it is possible.

I only have an eight foot high ceiling?

As long as your ceiling is 8 feet high, you can install our Hardtop Lift Systems! *If you have a lifted Jeep with bigger tires we recommend the Brake Winch Hard Top Lift

Does the Brake Winch and Electric Motor come with the Support Cradle and Harness Assembly or do I have to purchase that separately?

The manual pulley, the Brake Winch, and Electric Motor all include a Harness Assembly as well as all necessary hardware and fasteners. All you have to do is locate the spot in your garage where you would like to lift your hardtop off your vehicle!

In your photo it would appear that the weather stripping is resting on the harness. Doesn’t it become damaged over time?

The weather stripping is actually higher than the hard inner head liner. The contact points between the harness straps and the hardtop are with the hard inner head liner. Thus the weather stripping is not affected.

Can I leave my hardtop hanging in the hoist system?

The hardtop is supported and balanced at three points in such a way that does not strain the structure, does not touch the paint and does not affect the weather stripping. You can cover your suspended hardtop and leave it up and out of harm’s way for as long as you need to.

How high does my garage ceiling have to be?

Your ceiling can be as low as eight feet. It’s generally a good idea to back your vehicle into place for the removal and replacement procedure. This will accommodate a lower ceiling height and the hardtop will be over the hood of the car when you park normally so you wont bang your head getting in and out of the car. Also, the lifting cable will be far enough into the garage to prevent interference with the garage door. The greatest advantage is replacing the hardtop – you can lower the hardtop to just a few inches higher than it would be as it sat on the car. This will make it very easy to back your Jeep under it for a perfect alignment and absolutely safe replacement.

How difficult is the installation?

The installation is quick and easy. If you have a ladder, a 1/4′ drill, a phillips screwdriver and a 9/16″ socket you can install any of our three hardtop lift systems. You can have the hardtop removed from your car in about 45 minutes.

Is this really a “one person” operation?

The Brake Winch System and the Electric Winch System are truly a one person operation. Since the brake winch mounts to a wall stud it’s necessary to be able to reach both the crank handle and the hardtop to make this a one person job. Although, we suggest using two people with the Brake Winch System. The Manual Rope System is safer to operate with two people. One person to pull the lines, and the other person can help position the hardtop back onto your Jeep.

With a Hard Top Hoist Lift installed. What is the distance from the ceiling to the bottom of the suspended hardtop?

Manual Hard Top Lift is approximately 4ft. Brake Winch Hard Top Lift is approximately 4ft. Electric Hard Top Lift is approximately 5ft.

Can the Manual Rope hoist system be mounted on a side wall and if so are the pulleys supplied?

Yes! Our Manual Pulley system and Brake Winch system are mounted to the side wall, and the lines travel up your wall through 3 anchored locations. One anchor location on your side wall, the 2nd anchor location directly on ceiling above anchor location on side wall, and then one more anchor location directly above the spot in your garage you would like to raise your hardtop. The Electric motorized lift system is simply mounted directly in one location above your hardtop. The Electric version is a little easier to install because it uses less pulley anchor locations. Although, all of our lift systems are easy to install, the electric version is the easiest to use and the easiest to install.

Which lifting system do you recommend?

All three lifting systems work very good and are easy to use! Below, you will find the “Pros and Cons” for each lift system:

 

Manual Rope Hardtop Lift System Pros & Cons:

 

Pros: The pulley is a 5:1 hand rope manual pulley system. Attaches onto a cleat that you install on your side wall. One person can lift the hardtop off. Two people are suggested for lowering top back down to your Jeep.

 

Cons: There is more of a risk in dropping your hardtop because you are only using your hands to hold the rope. Mounts in 3 anchored locations of your garage, versus 1 clean anchored location with our “Electric Lift System” version. 3 anchor mount locations requires more installation time as well as giving your garage more cluttered look than our “Electric Lift” version. (Although, the 3 anchored location mounts do not look bad) You will need two people to re-install your hardtop; When lowering the hardtop back into the installed position, we suggest that you have another person to twist your hardtop while lowering, so that your hardtop lands on the hardtop mounts that are on your Jeep. If you try to do this by yourself, you would have to hold the rope in one hand while twisting your top, while you lower it onto your Jeep. We don’t suggest that! We suggest you have another person position your top while it lowers. Better yet, we suggest that you get the Brake Winch system model or the Electric Winch system model. With the Brake Winch model, has a safety tab… as you crank it, AND, it locks tight with every tooth of the gear as it cranks, or lowers! (this makes it safer!) If you have another person to help you install the hardtop back onto your Jeep, the Manual Rope System will work fine. We do suggest that you look at the Brake Winch model and the Electric Model Systems because they are safer, easier to use, and the Electric version is a truly 100% one person operation.

 

 

Brake Winch Hardtop Lift System Pros & Cons:

 

Pros: No risk of dropping your hardtop! A 5:1 hand brake winch, makes it safe and easy to lift, and lower. One person can lift the hardtop off. Two people are suggested for lowering top back down to your Jeep.

 

Cons: You might need two people to re-install your hardtop; When lowering the hardtop back into the installed position, you might need another person to twist your hardtop while lowering, so that your hardtop lands on the hardtop mounts that are on your Jeep. Mounts in 3 anchored locations, versus only 1 anchored location, with our Electric Motorized version. This makes the installation process a little longer. Also, because the rope travels from the top anchor location above your Jeep, across the ceiling to the top anchor location above your side wall, and then down to the side wall brake winch mount location, it gives your garage a little more of a ‘cluttered’ look. (same as our Manual Rope System) Although, it’s not bad… our Electric Hardtop Lifts System has a more clean looking installation, less installation anchor spots, and is easier to use… read more below;

 

 

Electric Hardtop Lift System Pros & Cons:

 

Pros: This is the best lift system that we offer. 100% fully operational by 1 person only! No risk of dropping your hardtop! Mounts in 1 anchored location, versus 3 anchored locations you would need to install with the other versions. This makes installation faster and easier! Push button, fully electric, one person operated. Because the electric motor is located directly above your hardtop, you can lower it down back down into the, installed position, by yourself! One hand on the motor button, and then one hand on the top, so that you can position it back onto your Jeep! Easy pleasy – lemon squezzy!

 

Cons: There are no cons. This is 100%, the best lift system you can get. 1 person can operate the system. We suggest this lift system over all the other versions.

 

Does the speed of the hoist need to be doubled down or is there a control on the motor to control the lowering speed?

Our electric motor winch has two speeds. If you don’t double down the line, it’s a medium speed. If you double up the line on the motor pulley (very easy to do and instructions come with motor to show you how) it will make the motor lift at a slower speed. We suggest the slower speed… it’s smoother! This insures that your hardtop will be lifted safer!
