    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from, and this is my review of the Surco Hard Top Carrier fitting all 1987 to 2016 Wranglers. This is for those of you who want to both move and store your hardtop both easily and safely. My first choice for storing a hardtop is always a hardtop hoist, but if you don't have the ceiling height or the garage space for that, this is a really nice option as well. This won't help you install and uninstall a hardtop like a hoist will, but if you're looking to both move and store the top easily and safely, this is a nice option. This carrier is built from tube steel that's covered in a textured black powder-coat, so it's going to hold up pretty well for you over time. It has a couple of rubber foam cushions to help protect your hardtop from scratches when it's on the carrier. And it comes with four casters, two of which are lockable to help you get the hardtop on and off of the carrier without it moving around. This carrier doesn't hold the top as firmly onto it as some of the other carriers that I've seen that have a little bit of a different bracket mechanism, and this doesn't have a safety strap to keep the top from falling off the cart once it's installed. This hardtop carrier is really simple, and there isn't too much to it. When you first take it out of the box, you will have to put it together. But after that, it doesn't take up a lot of floor space, so in my opinion, you won't have to take it apart and reassemble it every time you go to put the top on and off of it. There actually isn't any hardware, other than the casters themselves. They are both structural, and they're what help you to move the hardtop around once it's put on the cart. These are the three parts that you'll see when you take this out of the box. You put them together by following the instructions and you're done. The whole assembly process shouldn't take you more than a half an hour, and all you need is a socket set. When you first look at the cost of this cart and then how simple it is, it might seem like it's priced a little bit high. But when you consider how much your hardtop is worth and how much it would cost to repair it if you were to scratch it while moving it around, all of a sudden it becomes worth the cost, in my opinion. And believe it or not, there are actually some carts out there that are even more expensive than this one. So if you want to be able to both store and move around your hardtop without the need of having a second set of hands around, this is a really nice option, if you can get past the price. So that's my review of the Surco Hard Top Carrier fitting all 1987 to 2016 Wranglers. You can find it right here at

    Ask a Question

    How tall will this be, from the base of the cart to the top of the hardtop?


    • That would depend on the height of the hardtop, as not all hard tops are the same height and this cart works throughout the years and models.

    I have a 2017 4 door Rubicon. How tall will it be at the highest point when resting on the carrier? Thanks!


    What are the dimensions of the cart once assembled


    • The Surco Hard Top Carrier measures 48" x 36" x 6".

    What are the dimensions of the cart? With and without the unlimited top on it?


    • The Surco Hard Top Carrier measures 48" x 36" x 6". Dimensions of the top would depend on if you are referring to a TJ unlimited or JK unlimited but you can measure your top and make a good estimate on what the carrier would be at.

    Hi, is there a cover that fits with this rack in order to protect it when in storage? Also, I read about window clamps. Do you sell these or do I need to buy some to secure the back window? I'm a new wrangler owner and want to make sure I protect my hardtop when I take it off! Thanks!


    • For the Surco Hard Top Carrier we do not carry a cover nor the window clamp at the moment. The clamp to hold the rear window is not required but is useful to ensure the window stays put.

      Hard top cart

      Overall, it was a good investment. I have a hoist but this is easier if you're going to store for longer periods of time. My only complaint is that I don't recall seeing directions as to the placement of the support bar where the weight rests. Initially I had mine tilting a bit and then realized I needed to reverse the placement. But if you place it vertical vs at an angle, it works well. A simple sticker with and arrow or words "front" would suffice. Overall it was a good purchase and I'd recommend to others.

      Exactly what I was looking for. Easy to put together and holds the top perfectly. Have it sitting in front of my Jeep in the garage so really saves space. Wouldn’t hesitate to buy again.

      Great way to store the hardtop

      Great way to store the hardtop for those of us that live in an apartment or don't have a garage. Definitely need a buddy to help take the top off and put it down. It goes without saying, but when pushing it around, push from the bottom or it can become dislodged.

      "OK" product

      A bit too expensive for the quality of the product but not bad. As long as the top isn't on the floor while off the car I'm ok with it.

      Not a good product at all!!!!!

      Not a secure stand. Hardtop falls and the rear window gets stuck under the stand. Have to be extremely careful when repositioning it or your rear window will shatter.

      Why didn't I get this sooner

      For the longest time, I would rest my hard top on its side, even if it was on a moving blanket, but man not only is this a space saver, its so easy to move it around when you have it in storage. This will definitely keep your hard top unnecessary load bearing on its side if you are like me and have a hard top you're not using. Wish I would've bought it sooner to avoid some dings on the fiber glass, now I need touch up paint from it being on its side too long... great product.

      Works great!

      Super easy to put together and is a huge life saver when it comes to taking off your top for the summer! Theres no other way I could store mine, as our garage ceiling is too low. We actually have 2 carriers and it allows mine and my dad's tops to be stored in the garage with plenty of room to spare.
