Not another hardtop hoist thread

Seems like there is one every other day... 😎😎

Wondering if anyone has ever done something like this for the hardtop? How much does the hardtop weigh? How hard would it be to build some version of this....not necessarily needing answers, but wondering people's thoughts on this or some version of it.

My garage is reasonably deep as the jeep is concerned, something like this at the right height could allow for the top to sit over the hood....

I am looking after this genius idea for something that would do the same, on caster and I could easily move it around....thinking of this general shape c (but square) but I'm not sure how it would be for tipping....

hardtop is pretty heavy. I am working on a traditional style hoist this weekend. I just made a "t" style frame with hooks. I am picking up a hoist on monday. I'll have less than 150 in the whole thing. the majority of that is the hoist.
