Every year, when the seasons change, it’s time to switch from your hardtop to a soft top. This is every Wrangler owner’s least favorite part of owning a Jeep. Instead of dreading the switch, make it a breeze with the Lange Originals Crank Hoist-A-Top. Without the use of a hardtop hoist, it takes multiple people to remove a Jeep hardtop. However, with the assistance of one of Lange Original’s Hoist-A-Tops you can easily take the top off your Wrangler JL 4 Door alone. The balanced steel frame easily lifts and stores factory and aftermarket hardtops. With rubber coated hooks, you do not need to worry about damaging or modifying your hardtop. Lange Original’s rear Smart Hook™ ensures that the rear lift gate glass stays closed and out of the way for storage.
Minimum Ceiling Height: 7’

User Friendly and Versatile: The included manual crank winch makes hardtop removal a piece of cake. Simply crank the top off your Wrangler, and drive away. This is kit is compatible with any garage, carport, barn, or shed with between 7’ and 20’ ceilings.

Lange Originals Crank Hoist-a-Top Reviews
3 stars because it does actually work. The instructions are sufficient with addendum for the JLU. The metal rods clip in and don’t seem all that sturdy and look bent with the weight of the top. I couldn’t get the freedom tops to sit on top securely as described. If I was still shopping, I’d look for alternatives.
It say's that this works with ceilings 7'-20' it does not. I have a 15'-6"ceiling and it didn't even come close to having enough cable. Lang needs to re-write the info. on this. I had to use 60' of cable to make this work in my garage. All Lang had to say was sorry. Didn't even offer to send me the correct length.
No DVD instruction and paper instructions don’t explain where or when to put the foam pieces on.
