Given that the track spreads the load along its length, I personally can't imagine that would be a problem. I've used mine to hoist the top off but not to store it for any length of time. However, I also added flat aluminum bar stock below the roof as backer reinforcement for the rack attachment bolts out of concern for dynamic loads during transport, and that would obviously reinforce it for hoisting purposes too.
