    I like the Sideshow posted, I just had my rear window busted out (nothing gone) and at 600 bucks to replace, storing the top glass down im not liking the odds of it not breaking again. The one below looks easy to fab

    A great DIY project. Took the hard top off yesterday, this morning went to Home Depot and got the material. Price, taxes in $35.68 I bought two rigid wheels and two swivel, had it together fairly quickly, hard top is now in it's summer place.

    Using the 9.5" measurement from the front 2X4 for the 1X2, I found to be a little to much. With the hard top in in place the rear window slightly opens and is ~ 1/2" off the ground.

    Very solid trolley. Next I plan to install 4 closed rings on each corner so I can put a tarp over it, as it is outside.

    Thanks again.

    Just thought people may be interested to know that if u happen to have a snow plow the dolly for the top works great for storing them as well. I have one for the top and a cple for plows although I did beaf up the plow version. Just screwed another 2X3 in a "T" on the cross members.

    with scrap 2x4s and castors I had in my garage in under an hour. Easy project and VERY handy; I highly recommend this. It's time to take off your top! Warm weather is finally here.
    Cheers,
