Gator Motorized Hoist - Costco

I've been wanting to do a hoist in the garage all winter/spring but the wifey wasn't to keen on it. Even though I'm the only one tall enough to crack the noggin on the top. So we decided we would lift it off and use the cart I have that allows us to roll it around. Well we finally had a nice day outside and decided to remove the top. She wasn't able to assist at all, just to heavy and awkward for her. I suggested I get the neighbour - he owes me for borrowing my ladder a few weeks ago! lol.
Anyways, was at my brother's place and we were talking about it and he mentioned his neighbour has a hoist for all his bikes that he picked up at costco. So I went onto and found it right away.
It is the Garage Gator 220lb Motorized Electric Hoist. It is made to lift up to 8 bikes to the ceiling using a motorized winch and a world remote. So I pulled the trigger on it and it arrives sometime on friday. I will need to modify it some what if I am to leave the hard top suspended to the ceiling vs. just using the hoist to get the top off the Jeep and then put it on a cart. They do have a platform option that I've seen so it can definitely be done.

I think if I store it at the ceiling I will put some eye bolts into the ceiling lined up with the 4 corners of the top and then once it is lifted, put some safety straps of some kind to stop it from spinning left and right and just incase the hoist let go. Once I start the install and mods, I will post some pics.

Has anyone else used this hoist?
