    Would this not work for a JL? Seems pretty straightforward and the tops are very similar...

    • This Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top is specifically intended for the JK Wrangler hard tops. This will not properly support the JL hardtops and will require the Lange Hoist-a-Top for the JL Wrangler to properly work.

    Was just wondering if you guys changed the product a bit to fit the new JL. I have a 2017 JK. Haven't installed it yet. Just don't have that back bar and different hook for the back from the pictures you guys have on here. If so you should update it. Did you guys just replace that back bar with the foam ? 1 answer
    Lange told me in an email just a day ago that they will not release a JL compatible Hoist-a-Top until April 9. They said they have a modification to be compatible with the rear of the JL top, which is different from the JK. How does Extreme Terrain have this in stock before Lange has released it? 1 answer

      Review from Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top (87-06 Jeep Wrangler YJ & TJ)

      Nice system

      The item works however the fact that the rear window must stay open when lifted was not obvious when i ordered it. As a result this means it takes up extra space and can not be hung to close the rear wall in my garage. However it still works very well and over all I am pleased.

      Works as advertised

      Installation was pretty easy. I couldn't get it to balance so had to drill a new hole to lift back of the top. The worm gear cranks slowly but works much better with a electric drill and a socket on the nut that holds on the crank

      Works as advertised

      This thing works well. It was pictured in a video or pic with the winch mounted to the side but instructions are for front or back only. I couldn’t do this. I fudged with bought swivel pulleys to mount the system sideways. Used all the same front/back measurements. Works Great! I think the provided pulleys are the weak link in the system.

      Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top Installation

      The directions for the installation were good and we had it put together and installed in about 3 hours. My problem with the setup is that does not raise the top level. We tried adjusting the length of the wires several times. The back side with the window is heavier than the front. So the pulley winds tighter causing the back to be lower than the front. Also the gear ratio on the crank is awful. It takes a lot of cranking to move this from the floor.

      not quite right

      Really not sure if I was sent the wrong item. It was not long enough front to back to fit my 4 door top. It works, BUT not quite right. The instructions could definitely be better for install. OK but not great.

      It’s just okay...

      It does the job... but for some reason the hardtop weight distribution is uneven... both front to rear and side to side... instructions aren’t the best (the video on your site and the Lange site are not exactly the same). I actually thought yours was better... Hand crank sucks... tried using my impact gun, now I need a new one... I would suggest the power model if your garage height is tall enough. Solved all my problems by attaching two ratchet straps to four eye hooks and leveled it off that way... $20 fix... and piece of mind...

      Great concept

      Not bad for the price but I thought it would be more sturdy. Hanging was a challenge on 12’ ceilings but finally completed. Added extra everything to keep sturdy and braced straight.

      Online video from XT and from Lange not the best, but eventually got it all figured out and working well. About 4 hours, most of the time is getting the studs set correctly.

      It’s fully operational!

      Hoist works well, not too difficult to install. Takes a lot of hand cranks to raise. When not lifting hard top and raising the hoist I use my hand drill and it goes fast. Overall very happy.

      So Much Easier!

      The Crank Hoist-a-Top makes removing and storing the hardtop a breeze. I've got a 14ft ceiling in garage. Could've used about 5-6 more feet of cable to make the initial lift easier. Love it none-the-less.

      Great Product! Very Happy.

      The quality was great. Easy to follow instructions and install in just a few hours. Working as I expected. The only thing I had trouble with was one of the illustrations and it caused me to install the single off center pulley on the wrong side of center. But that was fairly easy to fix. Just frustrating.

      Hoist is great, Instruction need help

      For the price the Hoist is awesome. The included written directions are terrible however the install video by Extreme is more helpful but the part about the position of the back pulley and the cable install is not accurate and the crank is different than what they show in the directions or video. Don't get me wrong, works great, easy install and well worth the cost!
