    4 point lift system for Jeep hard top

    I was thinking of building one myself and came across this one. The manual ( see the link) shows exactly what and how to DIY.

    I created a pully system whereby, when my automatic garage door opener opens the garage door, a series of pullys lift my roof off.
    A minute passed then another. Then another minute. Then - another minute passed. Then another minute passed and another. A further minute passed quickly followed by another minute when suddenly -a different minute passed followed by another different minute and another and yet another further different minute, passed.

    Its pretty easy actually. I'll draw some diagrams in autocad for you. All you need is some binder twine and 4 of those ceiling hooks (the type for household planters). Tie the twine to various points of the roof, put the plant hooks at vaious locations along the garage ceiling. Then just tie the other end of the twine to the top of the garage and when it opens, up the top goes. Its really simple but effective. Just dont do what I did and forget to unbolt the top... I had the whole friggin Jeep in the air for pete's sake! Anyway.. I'll work on those pics for ya.
