Done for the summer

Well, after a lot of time and a good chunk of $$ I'm finally done with the Jeep for a little bit. I am fabbing up a front bumper for it in the next week, but this is how she's going to look for awhile. I'm quite happy

Oh for sure. I want to make up some sort of pulley system for my garage ceiling so I can take it off myself. I wouldn't say it's that heavy, just awkward.

i have a block and tackle pulley system that i use to take off my top by myself... i take another piece of rope and make a harness put a loop in the middle and put the hook through the loop and lift... makes it sooooooo much easier by urself

5$ pulley system from elder up the road+free nylon rope from upholstery shop for harness=VERY VERY VERY easy to lift top.. lol

They came on late 80's early 90's Cherokees. They are freakin' sweet.
