The Jeep Hoist-A-Top is a must have for Gladiator owners. The new Hoist-A-Top makes removing and storing a hardtop an easy, one-person job. The Hoist-A-Top supports any top with a well-balanced steel frame using the new Balance Blade. Rubber coated hooks and foam-covered hardware will protect your top's finish. The Lange Hoist-A-Top uses an incredibly strong steel powder coated frame that quickly attaches to your vehicle top without any drilling. This model also stores your freedom top pieces up and out of the way. With the push of a button a small electric winch mounted to the ceiling will lift your top to the ceiling in your garage or carport for convenient, out-of-the-way storage.
Hoist-a-Top uses an incredibly strong steel frame that quickly attaches to your vehicle top. There is nothing to drill or attach to your top. A specially designed cable pulling mechanism then lifts your top to the ceiling in your garage or carport for convenient, out-of-the-way storage. It takes only about three minutes to remove your top, by yourself. Replacing it is just as easy. Hoist-a-Top is a complete turnkey system. Installation is simple and their custom systems come complete with excellent installation instructions. No more pulled muscles, strained backs, dropped or damaged tops, or pinched fingers. Best of all, you don't have to find a group of people to help every time! Hoist-a-Top is available with a manual or power lift. A Hoist-a-Top Power Unit upgrade is available for owners of the manual Hoist-a-Top that want the convenience of a power lift.
Installation was as expected (watching the video REALLY made a huge difference). Printed instructions were a bit confusing, and not really helpful (again watch the video). Lift works and holds everything very secure.
Do you have to mount it with wood 2X4’s like in the video? The reason why I ask is because we have a hoist for our wrangler and we didn’t need to use 2X4’s to mount it to the ceiling. It’s flush to the ceiling...
Answer this question
You do not have to use the 2x4. That is how the vendor secured it in their video. As long as your mounting setup is secure, you're fine.
