softtop wanted

Hey everyone, I'm looking for a softtop in good or brand-new condition. I might even be interested in swapping my hardtop for one. I'm in Grand Forks, North Dakota, just across the river if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the suggestion but since i couldn't find one i decided to get a power hoist for the garage so i can take my hardtop off easily now all by myself and anytime i want to. Thats the real reason i wanted one. I'm no longer lookin for a softop. But thanks

Are you talking about which hoist? If you are i bought the lange originals power hoist. I got it off ebay for $100.00 cheaper then what quadratec or 4WD sells them for. The seller on Ebay was h2bumper (sales person for Lange Originals out of Utah).

I still want a softop someday for the summer time, but its not as important now since i have the hoist and i can now take off my top very easily any time i want to now. If you have a garage where you can install a hoist like this then do it. Its been the best money i have spent so far and well worth it.

Ya I meant which hoist. I have my hard top off right now and soft top on which is down right now. I just dont carry the windows with me so Id still be kinda screwed if it was forcasted for possible rain

Your welcome. if you have any questions when your installing it just let know. I tried several different positions for the motor itself before i found what i actually liked. Every position i tried would have worked, just i'm fussy and wanted it more to what i wanted.
I think you'll be very happy with it. When i 1st bought my jeep i saw that hoist and thought oh man thats what i want, just no money to get it then. I looked at many other options for building my own but nothing compaired to the lange power hoist. It is truely the most elite hoist out there.
