If you own any kind of jeep with a removable hard top, you realize the importance and convenience of having a lift installed in your garage. Garage Shapeups installs Jeep hard top lifts and hoists. Here are the top 3 brand we recommend:
Power Jeep Hard Top Lift and Storage
The biggest hassle of owning a Wrangler is switching tops. Running the same top all year is just not an option. Make the change from your winter hardtop to your summer soft top a breeze with the Lange Originals Power Hoist-A-Top. Without the use of a hardtop hoist, it takes multiple people to remove a Jeep hardtop.
However, with the assistance of one of Lange Original’s Hoist-A-Tops you can take the top off your Wrangler JL alone with the push of a button. The balanced steel frame easily lifts and stores factory and aftermarket hardtops. With rubber coated hooks, you do not need to worry about damaging or modifying your hardtop. Lange Original’s rear Smart Hook™ ensures that the rear lift gate glass stays closed and out of the way for storage.
Smittybilt 510001 Hard Top Hoist
The Smittybilt Hardtop Hoist is the most complete hoist system in one box. Fully adjustable to fit Wrangler YJ, TJ and JK 2 & 4 door models with a strong center backbone to perfectly balance your hardtop. The Hardtop Hoist has multiple fastening points to secure accessories and freedom panels onto the backbone with rubber stops and cushioned support rollers to prevent damage and scratches.
The exclusive easy glide wheels enables you to move the top around the garage with ease. The 200 AMP 1/3 HP AC winch is capable of lifting up to 440lbs and has built in limit stops and internal brake for safety.
Manual ep Hard Top Hoist
Many Wrangler owners switch tops seasonally. Hardtops are great for the colder months, but they do not allow you to enjoy top down driving in the spring and summer. Lange Originals is the industry leader in hardtop lifts and storage options.
The Lange Originals Hoist-A-Top Simple offers the reliability of the rest of their Hoist-A-Top line, but at a better price point. What separates the Hoist-A-Top Simple from the rest of Lange's hoists is it does not feature storage for your Wrangler JL's Freedom Panels. However, Freedom Panel storage options are available separately. This easy to use crank operated system lifts and stores your Jeep's hardtop. Simply raise your factory hardtop and drive away.
Don't Forget Door Storage"
Door Hanger & Freedom Top Storage
The Lange Originals Door hanger and Freedom Top storage is an option designed to work with the Hoist-A-Cart. Door storage hangers will fit two doors while the Freedom panels rest securely on the padded extensions arms. A must have accessory for the Hoist-A-Cart.
