Been Called to Duty in St. Louis

Hello board,

We just purchased our first Jeep! It is a Black 2012 Call of Duty. So far we love this thing. i have a couple of mods; Silverstar headlights, front and back door entry guards, and front tinted windows. My son says my wife needs plates that say "Black Ops Mom". To bad it will not fit on a MO. plate!

I have also purchased a Hoist-A-Top lift with a manual crank after my wife and I's first attempt to take the hard top off....nightnmare! I have the hoist installed and looks great but I cant seem to get the crank to come down slow? The mechanism just comes crashing down? I called 4wd where I purchased it from and the told me to call Lange, the manufacture. I left a message at lange and I have never heard back? Am I doing something wrong with the manual crank? Is it faulty? Very frustrated! Please help!

Thanks
TNTChris

Welcome aboard and congrats

I had the manual crank too and didn't like the way it worked, so i bought a harbor frieght winch and it works perfect. I think it cost me $59 . Very very easy to install.

Not sure of the answer, you may want to re-post your question in the general area for more views.

Thanks Guys!

Carl,

I just went to Habor Freight and looked for the part you wrote about and I could not find it? Do you have a pic or a part number? I appreciate your help!

Thanks
TNTChris
