I took mine off and put it back on at the expense of my shoulders and a few minor scratches lol..I do not recommend it. Now that I finally have a garage I'm thinking about building a pulley system to take it off.

Yeah, first few times my wife tried to help ended up with a few scratches on the top and side...

Now she's well trained to lift UP before moving it back... More difficult now because after moving from 33's to 35's, it's a bit higher. She still dreads when I want to take the hard top off though.

I think I'm going to just use some ratcheting tie downs and make my life a lot easier. Maybe make use of the winch somehow...hmmmm

How about some nylon cord, pullies and hooks so you can do it with one person? Run everything to one common location with all of the cords tied together on a piece of PVC pipe. You could even use a pair of pullies to act as a come-a-long of sorts. Just thinking out loud here.

I looked into it and there are plenty of threads: the harken hoist + j hooks seems to be most popular. It's around $125 iirc. You could definitely build your own if you have the skills.

I picked this up at HF for cheap. Set it up in the garage. Then I made a t- bar with three large hooks and it picks the hard top off with ezzzzz.

Do you notice much difference in wind noise with the new fenders?

FYI: I read in a thread today that the JKU hardtop weighs 125 lbs. Sounds about right.

The four doors are roughly 225 lbs. Bestop doors are 72lbs for all 4, that is a weight saving of 150 lbs.

May consider this option for lightening the JK for wheeling. Then again it may be just pi**ing in the wind for the good it does.

I don't think so Gary, these cars are weight sensitive when on the rocks (not to mention the whoops). My Tj is a whole different car with top off. It does get dusty though with the top off. I gave my new Bilsteins to Dakota and went with Fox adjustable 2.0's with resevoirs. I need to be able to make up for the weight difference so I don't bottom out or have to stiff a ride. The formula changes if I carry the tool bag, have the top on or off or have a passenger.

I think that would make a big difference with handling. I definitely notice it seems lighter without the top. Without doors too would be a big difference.

Hi Grant, I have the fox 2.0 without resevoirs. I had the front left starting to leak oil. I shipped it to Fox Offroad racing in S.D. They had it on Thursday and it was back on my front porch on Monday. They rebuilt the shock with new seals, o rings etc.. no questions asked, no cost to me besides shipping it to them which was $10.00. Fox has great customer service if needed!

Speaking of Fox:

The FOX Performance Series Adjustable Through Shaft (ATS) steering stabilizer offers unrivaled steering control and a striking high tech appearance. The technologically advanced design cancels unwanted steering forces in both directions, taking the place of two conventional opposing stabilizers. It will also respond to your input with 24 clicks of external adjustment to fine tune the feel. The integrated reservoir allows for additional fluid capacity and improves cooling during extreme use. Also included is FOX's relocating hardware that moves the steering stabilizer up and out of the way. The ATS represents a revolutionary breakthrough in stabilizer design.

Grant that may be just what I need to do to help with bottoming in the woops. Where did you purchase them?

I don't notice any differences I know that they are heavy but like a new winch it's more mind over matter when it comes to the weight of new parts. My fenders were cut before so it wasn't a big difference. Just looks waaaay better.

Gary that's what I have- the Fox resi's. Remember how you were complaining about the washboard sections in Ocotillo? Like butter baby. I exaggerate- a little. You can still bottom out if you go too fast- nothing will fix that. But Fox shocks and Tera Flex speed bumps will keep your spine from compressing.
And oh do I want that Fox adjustable stabilizer. I just have the measly old fashioned kind....

Probably not in the way you're thinking. I can't adjust ride per se. They came pre-set with my lift- nitogen pressure is adjustable. But I haven't touched them since install. Grant's are a step up from mine. You can drive my JK to get an idea but I don't have any...trails with tall bumps in succession....nearby. You have to get them off pavement to really appreciate them.

The resovoirs come in an adjustable or non adjustable versions. Mine are not adjustable but were tuned for my jeep from a shock expert that resides mostly on the other forum. I believe I was told that the adjustability dial is for compression dampening. Like Jen said, you really have to be off road to appreciate them. I like mine, but dont do enough fast trail riding to really get the most out of them.

Btw, you dont want to know what that Fox stabilizer goes for...
