Does anyone have experience with this? It is brand new in box and I haven't gotten a chance to take a look at it and how it even works. Will I be able to use this with the factory hard top? If you have used one, are there any different parts that I need to order? As in the portion that grabs the sides.

Since it was free, I am thinking of getting the cable for it to mount on the wall of the carport to hoist this up more easily.

Thanks in advance.

I had one I used for about a year. My only concern was the FJ40 top is much heavier than a CJ. The bars on mine started to bend and I did feel I was pushing the system to the limit. In the end, I went to a softop, so it become a non issue for me.

what is the weight of the soft top with no ambulance door? The lift I have says it is 250 pound max. I may use this just to lift it on and off with 1 strong person and a helper.
