I suspected as much. Nice winch system! Do you end up pulling it off seasonally or more often now that you have a system to do so?

I wonder if something like one of these is at all feasible? https://www.topliftpros.com/
I made one using a 110V winch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M22RUZY/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_ws40Cb12P979T mounted to the opposite wall, para cord and some pulleys.
It works great! It is no more trouble to remove than the factory hard top.
I can't speak about that other top lift but I would think that it will not be enough for the J30

Thanks. I actually just rang those guys - their lift is built for up to 300lbs, but they have a heavier-duty one coming later this year they say would be their choice for something like the Ursa Minor. Seeing that I'm not getting my top until late summer/early fall, maybe I'll check back with them then and see what's up :)

I'd also be concerned with where the balance point is on the J30, seems like it would be forward of a normal hard top and you'd need to be sure that rolling lift had a long enough base to not be tippy.

Overland Expo is less than a week away!
Who is going?
I would assume that John and Ursa minor will be in the vendor area.
Any other J30 owners want to try to camp together?

I had plans to go, but I registered too late. Wanted the full camping experience and it was sold out so I will plan earlier for next year.
