I am new to the hard top. Has anyone come up with a cheap easy way to hoist their hard top. I have seen the ones you can buy and they seem pricey. I was thinking to set up some sort of block and tackle to lift mine on the cheap. Anyone seen anything on that? Also. I have seen the tumb screws to make removing easier. Are those the best or are there some other quick disconnects?

thanks
Steve

Home made lift

I just bought 1 1/4 inch square 14 gauge tubing and welded it up in the shape of an I then drilled and mounted eye bolts and strap this to the top and re strung a come a long with 30 ft of cable. I then used several pullies to change the diretion and used eye lag bolts to mount it in the garage. Works like a charm and cost about 75.00 total. hope this helps. Chris

what about storage?

Anyone try one of those racks you can whell around and also put the doors on? I don't want to suspend mine from the ceiling. I already have too many scars on top :shaking:
