I got a winch from HF with the 20% coupon it was $79.00 and two ATV tow straps from Tractor Supply. I have around $100 in it and it works great.

I've been looking at the Lange Power Hoist for a while, but struggle to drop the $400 for a lift.
I need to check out the winch you bought at HF and see what I can come up with. My only concern is the length of the straps. My garage has a much lower ceiling.

My side walls are 16' so the winch is around 18 to 20' high. I looked at the Lange but they use the same cheap Chinese winch that HF sells. So you would be paying over $300 for just that frame. It was not worth it to me.

WIN_20160318_183657.jpg Here's what I have. Built the frame and bought the hoist from HB. Less than 200.00 total invested and works awesome. I put my Freedom tops in its case and set it on top of the hardtop. The jug is to keep it balanced.

Here's mine. Just ratchet straps and two pullies hooked up to two eye bolts and two pieces of angle iron. All tied together with 3/8 coated braided cable, to a 1,000 lbs tow strap for a boat trailer. The most expensive thing was the tow strap.
