    I opted for a pair of 2x4s since the 2 door top seemed to lend itself to that setup pretty well.
    Honestly, I don't know how you could do it otherwise on a 2-door.

    I know, right?!

    are you able to hoist your top higher with that setup?
    Yup, can easily pull it up higher, I just didn't because I have a light above it.

    Very professionally done vid Eddie, thank you. Will take some serious looking in to as well as height measurements of the garage upon my return to the states in a few weeks. Pima County Arizona home garages specially built to house your new Fiat Just trying to locate a place that could fit my dually in the driveway was a chore let alone HOA's coming out with guidelines of what you are allowed to own for a vehicle, no shit. My case, several locations that stated nothing over a 3/4 ton. Cannot block sidewalks yada yada yada...morons with too much time on their hands.

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.
