    do you have any way of mounting the crank on a side wall?

    • The Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top can be mounted with the crank on the side wall. The package will come with the optional sidewall mount instructions.

    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.

    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.

      Strong and easy to install. The best I think

      This was very easy to install and I think the best on its class because the hard top is not quite light weight and this hoist hold it very easy and I feel confident leaving the top hanging from the ceiling. I recommend this one above others.

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

      Missing pieces and parts

      I can not use this product as it is incomplete and missing pieces and parts. I now have to figure out what else to do. The instructions show parts that weren't included in the box and mounting hardware that was also missing. It would not fit my 2005 2 door Unlimited Rubicon. By the time I went to use it, cause my top was already off, to put my top back on, it was past the return deadline.

      Crank hoist

      Does job. Cranking is easy, but slow. Low gear ratio. Not a big deal, have soft top too and only lift / lower hard top 2x a year. Have 2dr Jeep. Most of the weight is held by rear pulley cable. May not rest at a level position to ceiling, tilted a bit like installation video. Relatively simple install.

      Does the job pretty good

      Not hard at all to install. My garage ceiling is sheet rocked and my electric stud finder crapped on me, this my only issue. As far as cranking it up, it us going to take some time. I use my drill with socket to get most of it up then manual turn it. Seems pretty solid. Only regret is now I am thinking of upgrading to electronic crank.

      Hand crank is a lot of work

      So first off I love the hoist it works as described. Installation was easy with no surprises(watch the YouTube video. But I Hate the hand crank.... it’s loud(squeals) and takes way longer than I had expected. I WILL be upgrading to an automatic crank.

      The foam holders for the t tops is very flimsy...they need to be made out of a stronger material. Had to put duct tape all over it to make it look and work

      Great, but....Instruction Revisions Required

      The Good - The hoist and lifting frame work great! The Must - Watch Lange's instructional video. Use a battery operated drill/driver and a 19mm socket instead of the provided crank. The Bad - The instructions need some revisions. There are a couple of pages that show erroneous dimensions or use of screw types. For instance, when mounting the crank support board (2x6) it shows using lag bolts(4), but only 2 lags are provided. The 2 lag bolts are for mounting the crank to the support board(2x6). Next, Lange only provides 13 (12 1) 3in. screws for mounting the support boards (2x6's), but 4 support boards are required, 4 screws per board plus and extra should be 17 (4x4=16 1=17). Lastly, the directions show the rear pulley placement equal to the back of the top's location. This is erroneous as the rear frame lifting location = the rear pulley location does not correspond to the rear of the top.

      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.

      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...

      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.
