    Top is off.

    I'm not crazy about it, but it's functional and secure. Need to figure out a simpler way to get it higher up towards the ceiling.
    I need to do this to mine tomorrow. If you joined the soft top syndicate, you wouldn't have to worry about this!

    That is how I have mine. I just go around and reset the straps to raise it higher.

    I've seen people run winches or even hand winches to make it a little easier. I would feel uneasy storing my hard top like that, though. I just put mine in the backyard and run my soft top in the summer

    I needed to work my way up. (I lifted it from the floor)

    show the wife/or a friend how to lace the ratchet straps, then slowly lift the top up as high as the ratchets will allow. Once there, you hold the top in the corner to be worked on, and have your helper undo that strap and re-lace it with a few wraps and couple more clicks then move on to the next. Go around all 4 corners restarting the straps. then work your way lifting it again. Keep doing it until it's as high as you want it. Ash and I got ours from the ground to about 3-4" from the ceiling with relative ease and it is MUCH more stable now that the straps holding it up are nice and short


    Edit: I just now saw this post. Sorry, 3 months late... I really need notifications to work... not sure why it doesn't anymore... Anyway, hope you figured it out. If not, try the above once the snow melts. Lol

    Mine haven't been working either!

    I'll definitely be doing this method once the hard top is off again. Which is probably next spring, seeing as they're saying we are getting snow this week!

    Or until Santa brings me a soft top

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
