I would rope it unless you got a forklift with long forks. If you do have one that would be able to handle it and keep it well balanced youll need to wrap the forks with something to protect the top.

Get a buddy to help you lift it off by hand, place on pallet, secure to pallet and then store it.

I can see the next thread: "For sale, used hardtop with forklift holes in rear glass" LOL

97 TJ Sport - 4.0/HP D30 w ARB/8.8 w LS/4.88s; 35s and flat fenders on 2.5 lift

84 CJ7; frame off restoration in progress.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

pallets aint big enough to fit a hard top on . What i did was took a piece of plywood and set top on it and lifted it like that set the ply wood on 2 2by4's worked great
