    Freedom Top storage

    Hey, so I picked up my '10 JK last fall...gonna take the top off soon....and was wondering if anyone has had any problems with it warping if stored on its side, or, if stored straight up, with the front being on the ground. Sorry if this is too girly of a question... I did a search and wasn't really satisfied with any of the answers.

    Thanks

    +1. That cart works great for JK tops.

    Helped a friend build one for his 4door hard top.

    Basically 2 2x4's 4" longer than the width of the top/vehicle. Drilled for eye bolts and drilled the ceiling of his garage for the matching eye bolts. Picked up a pack of tie down straps and lifted it to the ceiling. The 2x4's make a small shelf on the inside for the other parts of the top and the door surrounds. This would not work for me because I'm 6-1", but he was a little guy.

    I made a nice cart for my top but its a 04 top. If you want pics PM me.

    FYI...I took the chance and stored the top straight up, with the front lip on the ground (on a huge sponge) aaaaand, it was cool!! Put the top back on this morning, and didn't warp Sweet!
