    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 hardtop's finish. The high-tensile steel cable design should not be confused with cheap rope and pulley hardtop hoists sold elsewhere.

    Hoist-A-Top™ uses a strong steel frame that quickly attaches to your vehicle top for easy lifting. There is nothing to drill or attach to your top. A specially designed cable pulling 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. Optional lifting systems are shown on the following page.

    Fits Vehicles:

    Fits Garages:

    Ceiling Height 7-36ft

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Q: I own a Hoist-A-Top for a previous model Jeep can I use my old Hoist-A-Top™, and if not is there an upgrade kit?

    A: No, the specific hoist was made for your JK Jeep's unique freedom top configuration and sizing. We currently do not offer an upgrade.

    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.

    Q: I have a 12-20 foot ceiling? Why can't I use the manual hoist?

    A: We use specialty "Power Pullers" that are licensed and insured for lifting, for this reason they are only allowed 13 feet of cable and require at least three wraps of cable on the drum for safe operation. Due to the lack of more cable, the manual version is not recommended for use in garages over 10 ft. These customers should purchase a power or crank version; it includes more cable.

        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.

            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.

            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.

            Solid Addition

            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.

            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.

            Not Bad

            Had a handy man install the hoist - took 2 guys 2 hours - they couldn't figure out how to get the lift leveled - so the side without the pulley is closer to the ceiling. Probably should of hired someone else to do the install.

            Great purchase

            We bought our Jeep to drive topless nut when we went to take of the top my wife would not help. So I went and got this setup. Installation was fairly easy and it lifted and stored the top with ease. I want to also call out that there was a plastic piece broken and I emailed a picture to hoist a top with my address and the replacement was in my mailbox in a few days no hassle at all.

            Awesome hoist.

            So simple and easy to use. This is an awesome hoist, and makes removing and replacing the hardtop so simple, easy and quick. I can now enjoy my jeep to the fullest, where before, and due to my personal physical capabilities, I never could. Was easy to install, once I located the ceiling joists.

            Good Product, Poor Instructions

            Overall, i think its a quality product. Wish the power cord was longer. I installed mine on a back wall instead of directly overhead to buy myself more space to lift the top (about 6 inches or so).I think instructions could be better. I depended on that as well as youtube videos. Thats the only reason i don't give it 5 stars.

            High Quality Simple

            Took about 30 minutes to install and makes removing the top a one man/woman job after a few minutes of practice. The balancing of the bracket is a little tricky, but I expected that.

            Very quality winch, but make sure you or a buddy can do some engineering on this one. I have a medal frame shed and ended up having to get creative. Still haven’t lifted my top off. So I’ll post again once I really put it to the test.

            Outstanding hoist!

            I found the instructions a little difficult to follow but when I paired the installation with the you tube video it made it very easy. I completed the installation in an hour and a half. Tested the lift with 100lbs of diving weight. After which I took the top off for the day and put it back on in the evening. Reinstalling the top was a breeze. I am extremely pleased with the operation.....
