TJ hard top weight

I was just wondering if anybody knew what the stock factory Tj hardtop weight is. Doesn't need to be exact just a general estimate. I would guess about 80 to 90 pounds. Found a hoist I would like to mount in my garage rated for 125 pounds. Should be good just wanted to see. Thank you

Round up, you have to consider impact load if you stop the hoist with the top still hanging.

I have a 220lb from pittsburgh that does well for the heavier JK top.

The Smittybilt 1-Piece Hardtop is 239 lbs. I know that's a factory replacement top, but it must be close to the factory weight as the design is very similar. Let me know if I can answer any other questions for you!

I think its closer to the 125-130 lb range. I was able to take mine off with the assistance of another person when I owned my TJ. I was a 115 lb 5'7 skinny wimpy guy and wouldn't be able to help out on anything with much more weight than that..... Not that I can lift a ton more now but I am no longer 115 lbs lol.

I agree, the smittybuilt must be made of heavier material/reinforcement.

While not ideal, I have picked up my 05 TJ hardtop over my head and walked with it. I like to think I'm manly but not THAT manly
