    The assembled height is 74”. You could cut it shorter.

    Bought a scaffolding unit at Tractor Supply Co. on sale for $159. Very similar to the OP HD version. Set the scaffold unit at 4' off the ground (same as the installed height on the Jeep. Lifted it off the Jeep using my back and 'walked' it towards the back and onto the scaffold, assisted by my 5'2" wife. No problem. Both Freedom tops can be stored on the scaffold unit as shown. A couple of straps to make sure it doesn't move and done. It is very well balanced on the scaffold on its own, so it would not fall forward as you would think Scaffold can be raised up to about 6' as needed but I am leaving mine where it is for now. Pix included as requested.

    Great idea. Going to get one this weekend for our JLs. Should be able to get both on there once I build a second shelf

    Picked mine up yesterday from Home Depot - works great! I also have a home made wooden version that I made a couple of years ago for my JK, if anyone in the Boston area wants it just hit me up and it's yours free.

    Going to pick this up, but will this fit in the back of the JL? Just making sure. Thanks for the photos also.

    Yes it fits in the back of a JLU anyhow, I just went and got one myself. Had to go in at an angle, and move the front seat up but no issues. Also Harbor freight had a deal on moving blankets for $5, so it is ready for me to pull the top as soon as the weather cooperates.

    OP. Thanks for posting, this meets my needs perfectly

    Set this up the other day, ignore the clutter and low lighting; rainy day and I worked on the Jeep today, so parts went everywhere

    Love this setup, took maybe 15 minutes to assemble the scaffolding. Personally, I will not be taking the top off/putting it on unless I have a second pair of hands. Took me awhile and cost a couple scratches
