Suuuurrre.... You just stick to that story

I actually have a hoist on it's way to me now. Will be nice to be able to pop the hardtop off by myself. I'll just have to make sure I don't let it pop me in the eye...

Kevin925 Only 140 lbs? That's pretty light. Thanks. And also thanks for the warning about the swinging top. I will definitely hold on to it while I am lifting it.

lol...around here, we usually are TRYING to convince our peers that we'd been in a fight so we look tougher. Like one night when my dad was playing with our dog (golden retriever) and he popped him right in the face...leaving him with a nifty bruise underneath his eye. My dad refused to let anyone believe that he WASN'T in a fight at the bar the night before.

How much does a hard top weigh?

Anyone know approximately how much a hardtop for a '05 TJ weighs? I need to make sure my hoist will handle the weight.
