you are correct...I was far from calm when the top fell (6 feet to my concrete garage floor). This was a self-made hoist and the hardware (4 heavy duty split rings) connecting the hoist straps to the eyebolts (4 eye bolts) opened up. I was lucky that I had the top horizontal with the floor and lucky that me or my kids were not under it when it fell. I tried to hoist it up a few more inches when the split rings "split" and the top came crashing down. It landed just about flat and outside of all the plastic covers, etc on the top popping off, the glass didn't break. I did however crush the fiberglass on the two back bottom corners and at the top corners where the side glass meets the top (in the corner above the doors). I took it to the Jeep dealer and they quoted me ~$300 to repair the crushed fiberglass and repaint. Live and learn I guess...like I said, could have been much worse! Now I have another excuse to buy a bestop NX. Note my wife and kids were ready to buy the top for Fathers Day (with a $ contribution from me)...when they call, the price increased over $200 overnight!!!!
