I saw a Kickstarter for RollnJack hardtop lift. It looks similar to a Toplift Pro. The Kickstarter deal is much less expensive though

Nice, not bad. What I like better on the Top Lift Pro is when you lift you can close the back window which gave me a couple extra feet in my tight garage.

Still more expensive than the Freedom Jack setup and does not look to address every stability on the front half of the top. I love my Freedom Jack and have no concerns with it.

Waiting for TLP to shut this one down like they did the other one...

Just backed this. Looks perfect for my apartment. I have limited space and had resigned myself to not removing the hardtop very often. This’ll let me go topless when I want. Still working out some minimal cable security for it, although how many people would steal a used hardtop?? (Answer: there’s always someone.)

I'm in, looks like a very well thought out solution at a reasonable price.

Just backed it. I hope it ships in June, as currently projected.

Looks like if it works as intended it’ll be as useful as a certain well known similar product. That costs twice as much and isn’t as portable as this product says it will to be.

I’m in.

I like the setup of this and want to back but unsure how the headliners in the hardtop wil hold up.
I've reached out to the company with my concern but haven't had a reply back.

That’s a concern of mine as well. I could imagine if anything, just putting plywood in between the contact points and the top would prevent any issues. Hopefully it’s only on the structural supports of the top, though.

I considered this too, and it appears that it will be really easy to place some sort of pad to increase contact area on top of the ends to protect the headliner. Maybe some 1/4” plywood or something similar about 8” square should do it. Maybe if someone contacts the guy and mentions it he could include some sort of solution for this.

This lift looks like a great less expensive alternative. But I do agree, closing the back window is huge for me. Something definitely to think about.

So there’s a number of threads and tons of posts about products from China being garbage and how some folks like to support USA made products because there inherently better. I’ve been following the updates from RollinJack. I’m satisfied with how the product looks from what I’ve seen so far. The manufacturing process and QC looks every bit as good or better than what I’ve seen from made in the USA products (many of which are actually made in China too). They have better control of their robotic welds than FCA does on their frames. :LOL:
