I'm installing a Harken Hoist to lift my hardtop off my 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. I noticed the instructions call for mounting boards for garages without exposed studs. I'll need to pick up mounting boards, but I noticed that they're supposed to span across at least three studs for added support
My question is: What if my rafters don't span from the front of my garage to the back? I crawled into the attic and the rafters actually go side to side. Not sure how to install mounting boards if that's the case unless I install addition boards that go front to back and then install the mounting boards on top of them.
Anyone else have experience with this and can help me out?
