Hard Top Removal

Anyone ever heard of a hard top removal system that is kind of like a pivot on a trolly? I'll try to draw one (see attached). I vaguely remember seeing one. If not, someone should make it.

I'd go with a cable / hoist system before I did the teeter totter thing

The folks at the dealership just told me yesterday that you should have 2 people to lift it off, just so you don't ding up the paint, damage the top, etc. I think I would follow that logic, so long as I HAVE a 2nd person available.

It is back breaking. We need 3 people to comfortably REMOVE it - to floor level (not just lift) !!

Bought a new '09 JK Unlimited.
