I am a newbie. Had my Sahara Unlimited 1 week today. I spent a bunch of time looking at pics on this forum and others to figure a way to store my hard top. So when I finished it I thought I would share what I did.
I have a couple metal "Garage" storage racks I purchased from lowes, and I have the room above them to store the roof on top of that. So this is what I did.
-I purchased some beefy L brackets and through bolted to the rack,
-attached a 2x4 to the top of the bracket
- Then a 1x5 across/inbetween the two brackets
- Purchased a package of 10 stair runner carpet peices $10
- Lag bolted the rack to a stud behind it
- Bolted the 2 racks together for added stability
What I still need to do
-Either bolt the roof to my rack by going through one of the holes in the roof
or add a strap to tighten it down. It is very secure but their is very little room on either side and I am a bit paranoid.
It is simple sturdy it is stored in its natural position and it gets it above the usable space in my garage.
I didnt really track how much I spent in nuts and bolts etc but I would say it was between $50 and $75.
