Extra set of hands in Perry this afternoon?
« on: November 19, 2017, 10:16:06 AM »
Will anybody be out and about around Perry this afternoon? I need to lift the hard top off my TJ, and it's pretty heavy, so it's at least a two-person job. I'll have it ready to go when you get here and it'll only take a few minutes.

If someone can help out, let me know and I'll PM my phone number and address.

I'm planning to try again this afternoon - probably around 2:00.

Thanks, Kenneth. I'll send you a PM with my phone number.

Something broke on my wife's car on her way to work this morning - I think it's probably a tie rod or maybe a control arm. She's fine and I had it towed to the house, but I'm going to have to deal with that right away. So my little Jeep project will have to be put on hold. It'll most most likely be the weekend before I can get back on it.

I'm off work next week and am going to try again to get this little project done. Will anyone be around Tuesday/Wednesday who could give me a hand for a few minutes?

I could possibly help on Wednesday. I get off work around 1:30 and can come out.
GET OVER IT!!!

I got it taken off with the help of one of my neighbors, but it should be ready to go back on by tomorrow afternoon and I'll still need a hand with that. I'll post a follow up when I'm ready to set it back on. Thanks!

When I had a hard top, I built this so I could remove/install the hard top in a few minutes. When I sold the top, the stand went with it.

Basically it was mounted on casters and just slid around the back wheels. The black rods slid in and out and were what the hard top actually sat on. It was easy enough to lift one corner at a time. Was a lot quicker and easier than the funky straps that people use for a solo job. Unfortunately, it takes up a lot of space though when the top isn't on it.
