    Convenient Lift. The Smittybilt Hard Top Hoist is the perfect hands-free solution for taking off your Jeep's top for those summer cruises. Ditch the elbow grease, bent backs and asking a friend to help and leave your hard top's removal to a powerful crane motor.

    Safe and Simple. The Smittybilt Hard Top Hoist is capable of hoisting up to 1,000 pounds - well beyond the stock Wrangler's hard top weight. Its 200 AMP, 1/3 HP motor ensures reliable and quick hoisting with the bush of a button. EasyGlide wheels on the hard top anchor unit allow you to easily wheel your hard top a secure storage space.

    Protects Your Top. Built-in scratch prevention and safety stops make this hoist easy to use without damaging your Wrangler's hard top. Rubber stops, cushioned support rollers and coated J-hooks prevent scratching, while built-in limit stops and an internal brake ensure safe motor operation.

    Application. The Smittybilt Hard top Hoist is the perfect garage solution for lifting the hard top off any 1987-2018 Jeep Wrangler, including YJ, TJ or JK models. This Hoist will NOT work with the JL Hardtop.

    Does the kit come with a pulley for mounting the winch on a wall with lower garage ceilings or does the pulley have to be purchased separately?

    Hi, I already have a power hoist mounted. I currently use basically two seat belt straps and a D ring to lift it and it isn’t great. I’m interested in the wheeled hardware to go around the top. Is this something that is sold separately from the power hoist?

    • Hi, The Smittybilt Hardtop Hoist has 200 amp, 1/3 HP motor that should allow quick hoisting with a push of a button. The easy glide wheels on the hard top anchor should be included to allow to more easily wheel your items. Please give us a call if you did not receive all these items.

      Lovin' my hoist

      Very easy to install! Takes a little longer to get the roof off, but a heck of a lot easier on the body and you don't have to wait for someone to help!

      Not bad, works in my low garage

      My garage is 7'11" and this works for me on my stock suspension JKU. When you don't have the top on the cart it wobbles like crazy which worried me but once it has the weight of the top on it it moves great. I added some pipe insulation to the legs to avoid scuffing the sides of my white hard top and use a furniture blanket on the top to protect it there. Over all I'm happy with it. It does lift VERY fast though so I'd recommend short bursts of power with the button rather than just pushing it.

      Don't waste your money

      This product is not a well designed lift. If I had it to do over again I'd spend more money to get a better one.

      It works.

      The directions are pretty much useless. Took a little figuring to get it to fit. But I can install and remove top by myself now.On 2018 JL the rear window has to be open.

      Cool, but doesn’t fit that well.

      This makes taking the roof off fairly easy. However, the instructions aren’t that detailed and the frame needs to be an inch or 2 wider to avoid touching the sides of the the hardtop even with the frame at the widest points. I had to put towels to avoid scratching the roof.

      Life made easy

      Makes transitioning from Hard top to soft and soft top to hard top so much easier. Took the soft top off, back the Jeep under the hanging Hard top and lowered it back onto the Jeep. Tighten it down and ready for the cold weather.

      It’s ok

      You will likely make a few runs to the hardware store in putting this together. I know I did. Product works fine, better directions would certainly help. Note: hard top will spin freely when raised unless you make additional modifications to your setup.

      Twist in the wind

      Product installs easy but when you leave your garage door open and the wind comes in, the whole top likes to twist and move. Had to add additional roping to prevent this.

      I haven't been disappointed with a product enough to ever write a review, but this product was not straightforward. The instructions are short and sweet which is fine for the initiated, but I can see where someone would be completely confused without mechanical/logical sense. When it's together, it looks like a baby deer trying to walk as it's sooooo loose. There are other reviews where folks have scratched their tops by it tipping due to the looseness of the parts. It depends on how your holes were bored. There was just too much impromptu fixes for the product to be straightforward...for example the J-Hooks were too close together like the machining was off by 1". I had to redrill the holes to bring the J-hooks out further as it was bending the factory rain-rails on the top of the doors. I recommend caution in purchasing if you are not mechanically inclined. In final, I did try to cancel the order as it sat in processing for 3 days, and when I tried to call, the rep told me he could send the order to be cancelled through, but it may not be cancelled as they use many satellite warehouses which ultimately just means poor communication. I magically received a shipping update within 2 hrs of that call of trying to cancel.

      For 2 door, great deal

      Probably the best deal for a 2 door hardtop. It was a little tricky getting it balanced with the freedom panels but after setup, the hoist worked like a charm. Had to provide support for the hoist due to its weight but other than that great deal.

      Seems flimsy as you build it, and the instructions are that great about lineing up the peices and holes. However, it's adequate for the application.
