I am a new owner and I'm looking for a power hoist for my garage. The guy who installed all my garage cabinets and organization is now selling a hoist for the 2018 JL. I've read all the other hoist posts here but was hoping you could all weigh in on your thoughts on this one. My first thought is that it seems overly complicated to attached it to the hardtop. Thanks for your help!

That does seem complicated......and almost always a 2 person job with lifting the sides and corners up to attache those bolts. Also seems it could lose the center of gravity if you are not careful. I just installed the Racor lift and with the Topsy hooks it seems like a solid solution for 1 person.

I too just installed the Racor lift with the Topsy hooks. Nice set up so one person can take off/put on and it is stored out of the way. Works great in my small garage.Topsy hooks are a must.

That Proslat seems ridiculous. I just installed the Racor with the Topsy and it takes longer to unscrew the 8 bolts that it does to install the straps and lift it off. A one person job.
