    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, 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 ExtremeTerrain.com.

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

    James

    • 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.

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

    JustinC

    • 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!

    ElizabethP

    • 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.

      does its job

      ys i could have made something, but with a painted hard top i have reassurance. foam pads help set the top and tilt with ease and the window stays closed. they should add a strap or something, but i covered with moving blankets and tucked into corner of garage.

      Does it’s job

      While expensive, I feel better having a stand with wheels that was built specifically for the top. Easy to put together, and faster/safer than making my own. Having A painted top I used some moving blankets to cover. Should have bungy cords or something to secure is only recommendation

      Have gone back and forth with which cart to purchase. Truly glad that a chose this one! Install was easy and it was easy to put the top on. Remains very stable when moving. I added a strap around the top just to secure it. This is a perfect top storage cart!

      CAREFUL IF YOU HAVE A JL

      Despite that it says this cart is compatible with the JL, it is a very poor fit. The hardtop will sit on the cart, but it is hanging on by a proverbial thread (only an inch or so of the bottom of the hardtop is on the padded "feet" of the cart and the roller barely keeps the hardtop tilted forward). I am going to drill a couple more holes to see if I can get it to seat correctly.

      Meh

      So the brakes on the wheels don’t work so it’s incredibly hard to get the top on otherwise easy to put together and does save space in my garage but leaves some to be desired esp for the amount of money you pay for it

      Great Storage Option

      Got this to get the hardtop off the garage floor, opened up a ton of space. Also very easy to put together, only used a wrench to tighten bolts. I was worried about how the window would sit but no worries there. On a big plus, relatively inexpensive compared to other options as well.

      BEWARE! DO NOT BUY!

      I purchased this hardtop carrier a couple days ago and I was super excited when it arrived. Assembly was easy and I had it together and 10 minutes. I put my hardtop on it and my hardtop slipped off and it was damaged. This will not hold a TJ hard top! The foam padding scratched off the carrier almost instantly. And now there's scratches all over my hardtop from it resting on the bar. (Pads don't protect the top at all.) Extremely disappointed with this product! Do not buy this!

      Great product. Quality of the build is excellent but the package did not include the nuts and locking washers. I called the manufacturer and after a little disbelief by them they said they would send a set out to me. Unfortunately I’m still waiting for the nuts to arrive so I can finish the build.

      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.
