    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?

    Will mounting the wrench on the celing of a steel building be ok.

    MarkG

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

    Brandon

    • 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.

    Repeating an unanswered question. Is there a recommended maximum duration for storage on the hoist? or is it not recommended to leave it?

    ChrisM

    • There is no maximum period or duration for storing a hard top with this hoist. The hoist features extremely strong steel frame that will hold up for many seasons of use and storage.

      XTRichS

    Does this include all three pulleys as shown in the video? Second, is there a recommendation as to how long you can keep the hard top suspended so it does not harm the top or molding?

    SteveV

    • This top hoist will come with all pulleys shown in the installation video. As to the time frame can hang lange does not have a recommended time frame. Some people will keep this suspended through an entire season or when using a soft top or other set up.

      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!

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

      Solid lift for the money

      The Good: I bought this lift to get the tops off my 2 and 4 door JK's. I like that it works for both tops and has a very straight forward installation. The price is great and the system is very strong. The Not so Good: I have high ceilings and the cable was too short. I wouldn't have an issue with this if I had known before getting into the installation. I didn't see anything in the product description about cable length. My ceilings are 16' and it claims to work up to 20', so I assumed the cable was long enough. The only real issue I have with this system is the crank part. I took one star off for that. The crank likes to bind up under load. I added some heavy weight axle grease to it and that helped a lot, but it still binds a little bit. I would have rather seen a ring and pinion gear over a worm gear, but I get that a worm gear is cheaper. Advice: If you have tall ceilings get a longer cable. Get 2 D-rings to attach the cable to the lift arms. Makes getting them off easy if you need to. Grease the gear with heavy weight grease.

      crank hoist

      Overall great product. Takes the top off, and puts it back on easy. If I'm going to nitpick, the little foam sleeves where the front two pieces of the top sit are a little precarious until you get the bungee strapped. Also be very careful putting the hook on the rear window.

      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.

      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.

      What makes a hoist or roof removal better? Answer to the question is services provided by it. Some products are consuming lots of time of the users every time. In case of 014-220 Crank, after its installation I never spend more than few minutes.

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

      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.
