Hang your TJ Soft Top on the Garage wall - "Cheap Fix"!
hey folks - was cleaning out the garage for a friend of mine when it occured to me that hanging the soft top on the wall could be easily accomplished with a simple bracket constructed out of perforated angle screwed into the studs in the right configuration.
Once mounted - we just picked the right location for the factory shoulder bolts to go in and wow! Simple!
Clever! I just use some giant, plastic coated hooks threaded into 2 studs and set the top into it (Hangs upside down compared to your setup). Works good for me because I do it by self most of the time - it looks like your system would need another person to help.
i like your thinking. i was thinking about cutting 2 slots in my sheetrock ceiling (in the garage). then i could take my hard top, turn it upside down anmd with the rear glass open then and put in up almost flush with the ceiling. (the side windows would go up through the ceiling into the eve or attic of the garage. i will besure to take pics if i do it this summer.
Like the above, I have to of the big L shaped brackets for the home center and it hangs upside down from the pictures. The brackets in the picture pretty much require two peope. One to hold and one to insert the screws.
Besides, it's time to take the soft top down, not hang it up.
