I too spoke to the owner. Good guy. I also believe his margins arnt too high. I do however believe he has no clue how to manufacture in China and that’s why his costs are high. He needs to pay a consultant to source the stuff for less.TLP owner here. I bought it mainly because I wanted to be able to take the top off myself. I have the soft top too. So the HT says on the TLP. Super easy to use, very stable once you add the support bars on the JLUR. I would highly recommend, especially if you dont have the room or are taking the top off by yourself. It is expensive however I spoke to the owner and honestly believe him when he says his margins arnt that high. It is over engineered. Plus if you get it and dont like it im guessing you will get top dollar when selling. It wont depreciate much past 20-30 percent is my guess.
I don't know where it is manufactured. Needs "Made in the USA" sticker if done here!!!!I too spoke to the owner. Good guy. I also believe his margins arnt too high.

Best mod I bought for the jeep. HT sits on it and I can easily put it on jeep by myself.
I don’t mind paying premium price for a quality product and actually shop for those items, however, I have a hard time swallowing the Top Lift Pro (TLP) $1000+ price tag.
I’ve researched all the ceiling hoist, the freedom jack, and in my opinion, the TLP is by far the easiest and most convenient way to remove a JLU hardtop solo.
Has anyone upgraded to the TLP from the freedom jack or some hoist? Is it worth the premium price from all those other options? Do you recommend it?
Thanks in advance!
To get ready for the warmer weather ahead, I splurged on a TopLift Pro Hardtop remover. Yes, it's way overpriced, but I have no regrets after assembling and using this thing. I was really impressed with the engineering, quality of materials, packaging, and the amount of detail in the instructions that I received.
To be able to add/remove my hardtop with no help in < 5 minutes, and then push it out of the way is priceless. Here are a few photos in action!
Yes it’s a great tool if you don’t want to bother neighbors or relatives to help you. This was my setup when I had duel tops.I just assembled mine over the weekend. The cost is high, but man is it awesome! If you don't wanna mount a bunch of stuff to your ceiling, these things sure make hardtop removal a breeze.
