Hard Top Removal
 
I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to remove the hard top by yourself with some type of hoist?

I have searched the internet and found Hoists that you mount in your garage..however i dont own a garage :( I did come across a portable hoist that kind of looked like and engine hoist..however, now i cant find it :(

I made a platform
 
I made a platform for the top to slide onto,I made it out of some 4x4's and some plywood. Make it the same height as the bottom of the top. Then all you need to do is back up to it and slowly slide the top off by working it side to side working your way back. I can take the top on and off all by myself in less then 5 minutes.
