I used to remove and install my hard top single-handed on my back. I'd get in stand up a little with its weight on my shoulders and walk it back & off. It wasn't the easiest job but it worked well enough that I did it that way for a couple years. I finally started using an old electric hoist from Harbor Freight I had but it was hard to get the top centered well enough underneath it so it came off level without swinging around. Once it swung around after clearing the rollcage and popped my eye hard enough to give me a HUGE black eye. Which happened the day before my 1st day as development officer for a hospice. I had to give an introductory presentation of my plans for the year that first day and when I walked up to the front to start with a big black eye I'm sure they were wondering if they hired the right guy lol.
Nothing makes that job easy lol
yeah this jack makes it super easy. After 4 years soft top only, my hardtop will be going back on this fall lol.
just another reason i am super stoked my wife got a Ruby JL, amongst other obvious reasons ha
