I did it that way also when I got my TJ way back in 03. It was kind of a PITA and I never put it back on so I sold it. Hated the hard top. Didn't even get one for the JK.
Years ago I had an 81 Bronco and the top removed the same way as a hardtop Jeep. It was about twice as big as the TJ's but it was definitely easier than the Jeep to remove that way. Or maybe I was just younger.
