Default Best Hardtop Hoist System?

I read a bunch of DIY Hoist threads on here.
What do you guys think is the best solution? I have a normal size garage and need to do something asap. Neighbors are starting to hide from me since I always bugg them for help to remove my top
LOL!
Thanks dudes!

Default Top Cap

I got the Top Cap EZ Lift this summer and love it. Easy install and easy operation. I'll try to post pics when I get a chance.

I ended up building a table to slide the top onto that the front of my wife's car can still park under. I wanted to use the Rancor lift but my ceilings have engineered joists and was told over and over they would not support the load.
