Some owners used these straps for extra safety. They purchased on amazon.

WTH why are your safety/locking pins on top and not the bottom? Was their a design change?

Does this RollNJack allow you to close the tailgate window when the top is stored?

Question for anyone and everyone, once you have the top off, is there any harm in lowering the RollNJack back down to it's lowest setting? With how wobbly everything feels, it made me feel a little safer. Does anyone else do this? or do you guys leave it cranked all the way up?

I crank it down a bit

You definitely should lower the top as much as possible when transporting it.
The lower center of gravity absolutely helps. Think of what happens when you stack something to high like boxes, canned products etc. A light breeze can topple it. I had the TLP and always lowered it during transport then raised it once it was locked in place so I could drive the Jeep below it.

I leave it cranked so I can pull in over the base and up to the bar of the rollnjack.

Does anyone that owns ones of these also have the Rhino-Racks roof rack? I'm wondering if it would still lift the top without taking off the platform.

I asked the owner directly about this add he couldn’t provide an answer. I have one and it works great, but am thinking of getting the Rhino Rack as well.

I figured that would be the case. I assume there's some liability with giving a direct answer.

I'm going to give it a shot. I probably won't leave it on the lift though I plan to build a box to lower the top on in the garage.

I will have a pioneer platform on mine and I don’t feel like removing it regularly. I’m assuming it will still work. I prefer the price of the RollinJack, but the top lift pro seems like it may be more stable. With two extension bars instead of one.

the RR backbone system is only 24 lbs. The platform I will be adding is 56lbs. Feet m guess are pretty light since made of plastic. I'm guessing 85lbd all in added to the weight of the hardtop. That will make it much more tippy, but weight should be pretty evenly distributed. I'm guessing it will still work.

I haven't looked into the top lift pro, I'll check it out.

This is also my best uneducated guess...plus mine won't be staying up on the lift long

After reading all 10 pages most seem happy with the product and cost. Does anyone wish they paid more and bought the Top Lift?
I usually buy an aftermarket soft top and swap by seasons but strongly considering a system like this and saving some money instead.
