    Details

    Product Details: This hardtop hoist is the one. Easy one person operation makes the job"child's play". Rugged construction and a powerful safety-featured lifting device are included. Your top will not require any modifications to use this hoist. Rubber coated hooks and foam covered hardware protect your valuable hardtops finish. The high-tensile steel cable design should not be confused with cheaper rope and pulley hardtop hoists sold elsewhere. Hoist-a-Top™ uses an incredibly strong steel frame that quickly attaches to your vehicle top. There is nothing to drill or attach to your top. A specially designed crank mechanism then lifts your top to the ceiling in your garage or carport for convenient, out-of-the-way storage. It takes only about three minutes to remove your top, by yourself. Replacing it is just as easy. Hoist-a-Top™ is a complete turnkey system. Installation is simple and their custom systems come complete with excellent installation instructions. No more pulled muscles, strained backs, dropped or damaged tops, or pinched fingers. Best of all, you don't have to find a group of people to help every time! Hoist-a-Top™ is available with a manual or power lift. A Hoist-a-Top™ Power Unit upgrade is available for owners of the manual Hoist-a-Top™ that want the convenience of a power lift. 1 Year Limited Warranty.

    Fits Vehicles: YJ Wrangler Base model/Laredo/Sport/Islander/Sahara/Rio Grande (1987-1995) YJ Wrangler Renegade (1991-1994) TJ Base model/X/Sport/Sahara/Rubicon(1997-2006) Please note that this model of Hoist a Top WILL NOT fit JK Models, 3 piece tops, OR Unlimited Models

    Fits Garages: Ceiling Height 7-22 ft, with room to park your jeep.

    Frequently Asked Questions About This Product: Q: Can I order just the " T frame " section with hooks and slide? A: The manual unit consists of this "T frame" section and Power Puller unit. The Power Puller (come-along) represents very little of the kit, and wouldn't result in significant savings. The easiest and cheapest way to get the kit in a situation where you don't require a lifting mechanism is to order the manual version of that hoist.

    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.

    Can I get just the bars with hooks?

    • At this time, we only offer the Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top as a complete kit.

    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.

      This product makes it easy and quick for one person to take their hard top off and store it above their Jeep in the garage.

      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 is flimsy..

      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

      Review from Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK)

      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.

      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.

      Review from Lange Crank Hoist-a-Top (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK)

      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.

      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.
