Question for Safari Strap owners

I've got a JKU and looking at the rear "warrior" set for the trunk side windows and slanted rear window area. Jeep JK 4DR Warrior Window Set 2011-2015 - Safari Straps


My question is, how much can these straps be "lifted" to get more room to add items (or a 75lb german shepard) to the back area? Is it easy or tedious? I would likely be putting the dog in, some boxes from time to time, and also hard top panels (no soft top yet).

It's really no big deal, the back attaches to the rear window channel, so it's easy to lift up. The buckles are easy to release as well. My only issue is that the weather changes frequently here so I have to run with my soft top as well. The premium soft top sits too high for my liking when down, kinda ruins the clean look of safari straps.

But don't you have to remove both side straps as well? And that only lifts to that first set of "rings" correct? It looks like that would only raise the bar/straps maybe 4"? My "new to us" German Shepherd just jumped out of my Jeep (in the driveway thankfully) so I guess I need to block off that exit. I love my Safari Straps but Dirty Dogs quick release buckles seem to make rear cargo access a lot easier....
