Anyone have a guess how much the hard top weighs?

Just back up to a grassy area, remove the rear window to cut down on weight. Then take out the back seat, get inside, lift slightly, duck walk out of the Jeep and gently set down onto the grass. I've done bit several times alone on my YJ. The TJ is a soft top only and I'm not sure of the weight difference.

I used to take mine off alone, I kept 4 empty 55 gallon drums around, I'd line up 2 on each side behind the jeep then climb in the back and duck walk out with the top on my back, then I'd leave it sitting on the drums til I was ready to put it back on.
