        Mancave Complete with Hardtop Cart

        Worked great, brakes kept it from rolling around and stayed solid, stable and out of the way!

        Carrier? Should be called a Destroyer!

        Hard top storage is not something to take lightly and we learned that by purchasing this cart. When fully assembled it seemed just...flimsy and not confidence building. Silly us, we carried on, got the top up on it but it didn't feel sturdy. Tried to roll it to where it would eventually be stored and it slipped off the cart and onto our concrete garage floor. We broke a chunk of fiberglass off the rear panel. Honestly just lucky we didn't break the rear window. Ended up building our own cart from a forum post and it's 1000 times better and cost far less than this. Stay away. We have a JLU. Maybe the JKs are better but I somehow doubt it.

        Small footprint storage

        This is very easy to move and store my 2018 JLU hardtop. The two locking casters keep it from rolling away once it's positioned. I store my top directly behind my parking space to nestle my spare tire and save space. The directions are straightforward. I did have to apply a bit of extra pressure to get one of the locking casters in, but overall less than 15 minutes to assemble. One note: my garage door has pretty low clearance and was about two inches too short to just roll the loaded cart in from outside the garage. I had to lean the top a few inches forward for the one foot of travel immediately under the garage threshold. It was no great hardship and could also have been avoided by taking the roof off while inside the garage.

        works as advertised

        The carrier was easy to assemble although holes didn't line up perfectly so had to take a mallet and give it a wack. The top is protected from being scratched by the metal carrier frame with small pieces of foam. I think these could be more substantial. A minor slip or misplacement when placing/removing the top from the carrier would be disasterous.

        Worth the money

        This item has allowed me to store my JK hardtop with ease. I don’t have to worry about it getting scratched. Worth the money !

        1 2017 Rubicon - Jeepingtn

        Incorrect Instructions

        I, like many others, followed the instructions concerning which hole to align the bolt (wheel) in to. The incorrect instructions almost caused me to shatter my back window. The JK does not belong on the most narrow holes; it belongs on the widest. When I followed the instructions it caused the holder to be so narrow my back windshield rested on the pads, on both sides. For the price of three pieces of metal, one would think the company would hire a better technical writer. The holder works now, but there’s no excuse for poor instructions in such an overpriced product.

        Space saving and easy to use.

        In my, Like most of yours, garage space is likely not something that is plentiful. I originally purchased the hoist and had every intention to install. Until I realized that my garage was not tall enough to use it when I installed my life kit. I also saw that it was not recommended to leave your top connected; which defeated the reason I purchased it. I turned to this rack and love how easy it was the build and use. The top rest nicely on it and is protected with the rubber fittings. My favorite part of this holder is that it does not take up too much space and you can roll it out of the way when you need to get behind it. Highly recommend this holder.

      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.

      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.

      I live in an apartment building and plan to store the hard top in my basement. Do you know if this will fit through a standard door with the hardtop on?
