    Roof Rack Hoist

    I have a Mopar roof rack on my JLU hard top. Is the connection between the two strong enough to use as lift point? If I run a board through both bars on the rack could I lift the top and store it with out risk of it falling?

    Seeing how it attaches to the drip edges of the hard top I'm with Grendal and wouldn't risk. That would be an expensive and potentially dangerous mistake if it fell. You could slide 2x4's under the edges of the hard top and hoist it up in a similar way.

    Thanks, that was my assumption I just wanted confirmation. I saw the WAYALIFE video on doing one with a 2x4 so I’ll probably try that out.

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.
