    Anybody try a couple snatch blocks with their winch to lift it? After its up it could be secured with some tie downs

    Thanks! Others had mentioned that the hardware was low quality so I was't surprised when a few of the heads twisted off. I probably should have predrilled the holes. The other issues had to do with truss clearance that could have been avoided with a bit more layout and dry fit. In the end it works well and I feel that the top is safe and secure! Now, if we could get some nice days I would like to use it! Thanks again for the pictures and tips!

    I bought a soft top so the infrequency of using the lift does not justify putting anymore into it.
