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 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 mechanism1 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.

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.

    So far so good...

    Out of the box it was intimidating, but after sorting the parts, reviewing the video it was easy to put together. I wish there was more information such as when you ceiling mount without the eye hooks how far down it hung compared to when you wall mount with the eye hooks how far down it hung. I also wish the power cord was larger on the winch. package came undamaged, good packaging, and fast shipping from extremeterrain.com

    Great Product

    Great Product, I installed mine in my garage I have 9'6" ceilings and mounted it from the ceiling and it is about shoulder high on me (6'2'). Easy install video to follow, to install. There is an option to mount the hoist on the wall if you have a shorter ceiling. If I did that I could gain an addition foot up. My preference was the ceiling.

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

    Works great

    Great product. Easy to use and easy to install.. if you are doing a side wall installation of the motorized device, be aware of it moving when you hoist the top. Caused pressure on the wire that lifts the top. We fixed this problem by placing a solid peace of wood under the edge of the motor against the wall. This kept the motor from moving from the heavy pressure of lifting the top. Worked like a charm

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

    Almost Perfect!

    I could not wait to get my Hoist-A-Top because there was no way I was removing my hardtop without help. The description stated this unit would work in 20' ft garage which is the main reason I bought this model. My garage has 16' trusses. Everything mounted just fine and it works great with one exception. The cord for the remote is only 8'. Hanging from 16' ceiling it is awkward to use with the remote 8' in the air. Made some adaptions and am now completely satisfied. I only gave 4 stars because of the remote cord.

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

    Coolest thing we own

    Because if space limitations, I needed someway of storing the hardtop on our near Rubicon Unlimited during the summer. Our ceilings are very high in the garage and decided to promptly purchase the Lange Power Hoist (new we were to lazy for the manual version). Assembly was straightforward and installation was relatively easy with two people and watching the YouTube video. We stored the freedom tops separately, so a little adjustment was necessary to get the proper center of gravity point, but it worked perfectly and the top is secure on the ceiling. Highly recommended.

    So handy!

    I am a single female who wanted a set up to take off and put on my hard top without help. This system is the ticket! I did hire someone to install the hoist but it is so nice to have my top off the garage floor. I can for ever more put the top on and off all by 5'4" self!

    almost perfect

    It works as advertised and nice and smoothly. The only complaint I have is that when it is unloaded and moved to storage position it is unbalanced. They recommend hanging a 1/2 gallon jug full of water on the light end to level it. Seriously? Why not include a weight to hang on it and have a much more professional appearance?

    Lange Power Hoist-a-Top is awesome!

    This is a great product and easy to install. It is so easy to just lift the top right off. The other thing I like about this lift is that you can lift all three pieces of the top at once. I would recommend this product for anyone with a hardtop!

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

    Works great!

    Really like it as a product. Instructions included were garbage, but watching the video helped a lot. Only real missing instructions were to use a set of arm extenders...becomes obvious when you try to use the lift the first time and the arms arent wide enough to get across the jeep top...took 10 mins to add afterward. I mounted to ceiling. Since i had access to the attic, punched a hole through the ceiling where i wanted it mounted & strung a 4x4 between the trusses on each side...used appropriate joist hangers for stability. Works like a charm and convenient.

    Works well

    Fairly easy to set up, works well. I do think a 4# weight should be included as a level. Using a milk jug with water seems foolish for a $400 lift. To be clear, I like it and it works well

    Good Kit

    It was a bit of work to get this setup but well worth it. I can now remove and replace the top without any help. Takes about 10 min to take the top off or to put it on. Most of that is unscrewing the bolts. Since my jeep is a daily driver, I use this setup several times a month. If you take off your top once a year, you would not need the powered hoist.

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

    Missing a key piece

    The overall fit of the system is just fine. The power of the wench itself is just fine as well. First the instruction video is on DVD. Not sure how many people have a tv and DVD player sitting in their garage. YouTube it and you'll find it, i just brought an iPad into the garage. It's slow paced and you can follow along easily enough. However the wench is designed to be mounted on the wall. Two problems with this. First the mounting brackets aren't square, they have a slight bend in them, causing the bracket to not lay flush to the wall. As a result after numerous opening and closings the brackets start to actually cut themselves into the wall. (I welded a 12x24" metal plate to remedy this) Third the 90 degree wall mount as described in the installation would require a 2 pully system and this only came with 1. Again, Home Depot was able to fix this, but having the correct pieces should be included. The wench is very on the basic. It is definitely an inexpensive model which will do the bare minimum (which in this case I guess is all you need). Overall the rigging system works, it does what it's supposed to, but the missing piece and the incorrect brackets for a standard garage mount were disappointing.
