    does the back window have to open or "up".

    I have an 7'1" ceiling in my garage. I realize the min height says 7' but is that a "real" 7'? Any caveats with such short clearance?

    KirkS

    • Hello! The reason that the minimum height is set at 7' is because anything less than that, you would not have enough clearance to get your top off of your jeep. That height is truly 7', so with your 7'1" ceiling you will have enough clearance to get your top off without any issues at all.

      Great product, great price.

      I just installed the Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top yesterday. I went with reviews and would definitely buy again. I used the you-tube video (40 minutes in length) to install, as the written instructions provided were a little difficult to follow. They mention about 2 hours to install; I installed in about 6 hours by myself, really made sure the measurements were spot on. Taking the top off is a breeze, the hand crank may take a while, but a few extra minutes was ok. Highly recommended and easy to use.

      Horrible Instructions

      What I Thought was a good investment ended up costing me almost $1200. There's a lot of pieces and not enough direction on how to assemble. Additionally there's no direction on how to utilize the back hook which has 2 parts. The directions state to gently close the window, I did this and my entire back window shattered. Video tutorials and more in depth instructions would be helpful and not as costly as replacing the entire window.

      Convenient storage option

      The crank hoist-a-top allowed me to take advantage of the storage capability in my garage. The hardtop is up and out of the way. I'll be able to retro fit it for the winter storage of my soft top. It was simple to install and worked as advertised. However, my 8ft ceiling made the angle on the return cable from the ceiling to the crank too sharp and it touched the hardtop. I had to install a 2nd pulley I purchased from Lange or else the cable would have scratched the hardtop. A simple fix of a problem that was not mentioned in the directions. I could not have been the first person to have this problem. Glad I purchased the Lange Crank hoist-a-top!!

      this hoist was easy for two people to install. I've had my top on it for a month now and the crank has not moved an inch. don't know how easy it is to put the top back on...may never!!!

      Works like a charm

      Sturdy, reliable, straightforward to install. I recommend with no reservations. I bought the high ceiling version which easily accommodates my 12' garage ceiling installation. Customer service rep was very informed and helpful in selecting the right model for higher ceiling. One note: because the hoist is a single cable, it has a tendency to rotate freely. It's easy (and advisable) to rig a couple of anchor points on the wall with eye hooks to attach bungees or string to keep the top from rotating when suspended.

      Good Product, performs as advertised

      Just installed this hoist today. It took me an honest 5 hours, but I am notoriously slow - I take my time and make sure I'm doing it correctly. My hints / suggestions for installation. 1) Watch the you tube video!! The written instructions are pretty basic and not very helpful, but the video shows how it should be done. Follow the video directions and you'll be fine. 2) Be flexible. The stud spacing in my garage meant I had to adapt a little bit from the video instructions. 3) When you latch onto your hardtop make sure the frame is straight on your top - the front/back bar needs to be straight, not at an angle. I had my cock-eyed and that didn't work too well. I had to set it back down, straighten the frame out, and everything was fine.

      Does the job

      Like everything there is some work getting this installed. It moves VERY slowly when turning the crank so you need to know that there is a lot of cranking involved to get it up to the ceiling. The one benefit of this slow movement is that the top isn't crashing into the vehicle when trying to put the top back on.

      Great idea, quality is questionable

      I purchased this product, fit seems great, install went great. The manual crank function is on the cheap side. Worm drive or gear is very cheap, must be a cheap aluminum and it scraps and is wearing badly the first time I lifted the top. I will have to go out and buy a replacement. Something that is a higher quality.

      The time and money are two main essentials of the life. I want to save both and it becomes possible with some smart decisions. As a result, I choose the way of 014-220 Crank and it will help in saving the both elements effectively.

      Fit perfect, easy install, looks great

      When an individual is buying the Jeep at that time some associated expenses are waiting for them. Main expense is related to the installation and use of hoist or top lifting tool. I am using 014-220 Crank that’s why I can avoid numerous expenses.

      Some individuals buy the high-quality hoists from the market for the Jeep. For the installation of these ones they hire an expert and pay extra money. I consider the 014-220 Crank and due to its features, I install easily.

      The strength or durability of a product is based on its structure and material used in manufacturing it. The 014-220 Crank is used by me and its complete structure is manufactured by using high-grade steel.

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

      Works great, great value for the money.

      If you own a garage and are tired of messing zippers and scratched windows, a hard top with this hoist is the way to go. I had my hoist installed over a weekend, I took my time. The quality of the parts were good and assembly was simple. It's now easier for me to remove my top in a few minutes by myself, enjoy top off driving for the weekend, and return to the comfort and security of a hardtop during the work week. Very happy with this product.

      Space saving

      I wasn't for sure if I'd like the hoist at first. Once I installed it and really got to use it, I really like it. I can safely remove the JKU top and store it up and out of the way. I have mine installed so I can back in the garage to remove it, then pull straight in to park with the top above the hood.
