Hard Top Hoist
I was really hesitant to install this by myself but it really ended up being pretty easy to install. Probably would be easier with one helper but it can be done. Once installed it makes it really easy and pretty quick to get your top off the Jeep. I have also found that I can replace the top back on my Jeep by myself with this hoist. Better with two to get it lined up but can be done.Helpful (1)

Terrible instructions and support

Ready for Summer!
Love the hoist! It’s simple and so easy to use with just one person. I can now take the hardtop off in less than 5 minutes! The directions are straight forward, but could give more detail. Make note to use the longer 4.5inch lag bolts. They’re not mentioned until the end of the directions. The last suggestion would be to buy higher quality screws and pre drill pilot holes. I broke several screws.Helpful (1)

We installed the Lange power hoist over the weekend. They videos provided were helpful but not complete, though the install was not too difficult. I have it 5 stars as the lifting frame and power hoist make switching the top a piece of cake but a few minor changes would make the product better. First, I would add 2 pulleys to the wire where it attaches to the frame, the hoist gearing is a little fast and when bringing the top down to the Jeep it comes down a bit too fast. Using the extra pulleys will cut the speed in half.Helpful (1)

Double spool packaging
Well first the item was not packaged well. The motor assembly was boxed near the frame assembly that damaged the motors fan assembly. Contacted the folks at Extreme terrain with pictures stating I just needed a new fan shroud and they wanted me to pack the whole thing up and send it back for a replacement. That makes zero sense. Just send me the shroud not the entire kit. Total waste of money as the kit weighs a ton. So I had to remove the fan shroud to get the motor to spin as it the fan kept hitting the shroud. Secondly I purchased this based upon the description shown in Extreme Terrains website which was shown as a single spool. Well apparently mine was an Upgraded double spool. Well that’s all well and good but the spool doesn’t have a mechanism to guide the line in. In the directions it tells you to offset the secondary anchor point so that the frame and roof stays straight. Makes total sense. Well if you have a high ceiling like I do the spool due to the offset will start to only gather on one side of the reel which makes the roof unlevel the further it goes up. The wire spools all on one side. Not thrilled with this setup.Helpful (1)
Will this lift the top of a 2018 JL Unlimited Sahara?
This Lange Power Hoist-a-Top is specifically designed for the JK's ,so we can only guarantee fitment and functionality with the use of the 2007-2018 JK hard tops.
Does this allow it to be stored on the system in the air or do you need to drop it to store on a cart?
You are able to leave the top suspended in the air when using this lift.
Does this hoist have a certain range of reach for the hard top to ceiling? I have a very high garage ceiling.
The Lange Power Hoist-a-Top is Suitable for Garages with 7-25 ft. Ceiling Height.
What is the maximum weight capacity rating for this product?
The lange hoist a top is rated for 200 pounds, easily able to lift the JKU hard tops.
I have limited storage space. Can this be used to lift the top off the Jeep, move the Jeep and then set the top down on a wheeled cart? That way I can move the cart to storage. Once needed again i could move the cart under the joist, lift it, move the Jeep in underneath and place the top back down on the Jeep.
Yes, you could indeed use this as an easy relocator of the hard top as you are describing, as opposed to just for storage.
All 2019 models are JLs, there are no 2019 JKs. This will only fit JK models.
We have not attempted to mount this on an angled ceiling, but suspect some modification would be required.
Unfortunately this will not work with the JL models.
The Lange Originals Power Hoist-A-Top works with all 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK, including 2 and 4 door models.
The motor for the Lange Power Hoist-a-Top will need to be mounted to your garage ceiling, above your Jeep.
The Lange Power Hoist-a-Top does not include a ceiling pulley for wall mounting.
We do not carry replacement parts for this kit, we do recommend reaching out to Lange in this situation.
Unfortunately Lange does not provide a horsepower rating or weight rating for the motor in this kit. We do not recommend exceeding the weight of the hard top.
This Hoist-a-Top is specifically designed for the JK's at this point in time, so we can only guarantee fitment with the use of the 2007-2018 JK hard tops.
We do not carry the replacement hooks or a flat hook for the Power Hoist-a-Top.
