jeep hoist J hooks or straps???

Hey everyone, i'm building a hoist for 2012 unlimited 4dr. I was wondering if people have any experience with whats better for actually lifting the top. J hooks or straps? I feel like j hooks will grab it better but leave marks over time. While the straps may be quicker to raise up i think it could damage the weather stripping. I know people say to use pool noodles so im hoping some people can give me better insight.

Thanks everyone!

I just redid my lift. I have a HF hoist and and 80/20 T-frame. Use the hooks before and just never felt comfortable with the hooks alone and a single pickup point. This year I changed it to pick up at three points and strapped it to the T-frame. One across the front and 2 from back to the T ends in the front. The straps allow me to close rear window also. Wasn't the cheapest set up, but the easiest and least stressful removal so far.
