Do you guys have any new information on this? I have placed my order for JLUR with dual top. Now I am organizing my garage to receive this fun car. I am considering installing a hoist to remove the hardtop as soon as possible. What are your thoughts? Is there anything available in the market right nowI have the same hoist. I suspect that the spoiler at the back of the hardtop is going to cause a problem. I'm pretty confident I will be able to figure something out.
Your idea is probably better but since I don’t have my Jeep yet, it is hard to take measurements. I was hoping that by paying a few hundred dollars markup, I will save time and I will be ready in advance. And once I receive my Jeep, I can take the top off and take it for a beach ride.I made my own copy of the Lange hoist using a friends for a template. It cost me a total of about $75 including the winch. I use a strab with a hook on the end for the rear of the top. Mine should work with the JL no problem.
