        Nice crank hoist.

        This hoist will help you work smarter not harder. I suggest when installing the pulley. you use stronger screws. The supplied pulley screws break pretty easy when screwed into wood.

        Easy to Install, Best Hoist Ever

        This was so easy to install. I am not the handy type and it only took me a little bit to get it completely done. It's great quality and it is so easy to operate. I connected a drill to it, so I didn't have to crank it manually, and it works awesome.

        1 2018 Wrangler - Me2u2me2

        Tough install.

        I have a 12 foot ceiling in my garage. Had to get more cable. Said it was good anything over 7ft. Back cable holds most weight so was a trick to get it to go up evenly. Got it figured out 6 hour install. Hand crank sucks, use a drill motor to make it go fast.

        Jeep Hoist

        Easy installation even for a novice handyman. Makes removing top a simple/safer act. Will be enjoying the summer a little more with the ease of removing and reinstalling the top when needed. This was an excellent purchase, wish I had bought one sooner.

        Solid product

        Install was pretty straight forward. Have yet to use but seems to be quality product. Hoist is a bit slow going up and down. Installed in about 2 hours with help of a friend.

        Lange Crank hoist a top JK

        I am very satisfied with the Lange Crank Hoist a top. Installation was fairly easy for me and I am not familiar with installing much of anything. I will admit I did have a little help installing this product as its much easier with assistance. It truly has been a life saver as it enables me a 48 year old female to remove this from my jeep without anyone else to assist me. I am very happy I invested in this product. I take great pride in not having to count on anyone to assist me year after year. Thank you Lange!

        4 2018 Wrangler - Slash

        Works great

        Hoist works great. Install was harder than planned. Make sure you have a good stud finder if your studs are covered with drywall. I spent a few bucks on some upgrades lag bolts. Call me paranoid, but I had visions of the hardtop dropping on one of our cars, or worse, one of us. Only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star rating was because of the cheaper screws and bolts. Also, hard to explain in a review, but the holes in the single pulley mounts are difficult to put the screw in straight. So you end up putting the screw in at an angle and then when you tighten it the head breaks off. Happened to me three times. Fortunately, I live 1 block from Lowe’s.

      What is the distance from the ceiling to the lowest part of the top when it is hanging? I’d like to be able to store above the garage door. Top depth 27”. Room above garage door in up position 40”. Will all parts of hoist frame, pulleys and freedom panels fit in this 13” of space above the top? Thanks JRA

      Will this mount to a slanted ceiling by self adjusting the cables to be shorter in the back and longer up front..thanks

      • This could mount to a ceiling with a slant however, the mounting would be slightly different since the weight distribution will change. This kit however there will not be 2 cables, there is only 1 which make it easier to have the weight distributed.
