Well, that other jeep forum said that a TJ hardtop weighs around 150lbs, so that's about the same size as the back portion of the freedom top on an unlimited. Then, I'm guessing the two front pannles weigh about 20lbs each. All together, It's probably close to 200lbs, give or take 10.

Thanks
I did this search before I built my freedom top hoist and I remember finding that the top weights 95lbs. (without the 2 front panels)

Could you please explain how you intend to use the ladder hooks. So far on this forum I have seen storage carts and various ceiling storage support systems but not a wall mount. I was considering devising some sort of wall mount system because there are lights in the way on the ceiling.

I know it's nowhere close to 200 lb. If I was estimating, I'd say it weighs about 80-90 lb. I lifted it by myself into position (see thread above), and had my daughter put the 2x4's on the hooks, then I lowered it down. It's not really that heavy, it's just bulky.

Thanks, for posting your idea. I've been trying to figure out how to store my hardtop for the summer without taking up too much room. I've got little one running around so it needs to be secure and out of the way. I'm not too keen on keeping it suspended all summer, this is a great (and cheaper) alternatice. THANKS!

I only estimated that becasue I've never had a hardtop, and on the other forum he's talking about, some guy said his TJ's hardtop was 140lbs. I just figured since there is more hardtop on an unlimited JK than a TJ, it would weigh more.

Huh, huh..........my bad.
