Question: it looks like the crank is at the end of the hoist unit. Could it be rotated 90* so that crank was to the side of the Jeep rather than the end [where the rear window would be in the way] since the platform is 4'x4' square anyway? It seems it'd be easier to operate from the side rather than the front/back of the JK.
Sure, all you gotta do is figure out a gear reduction box and multiple connections-
Take a look at the RACOR diagrams and see if you can use another hoist system-along withit

The orientation of the unit depends on how you install it - which is dependent on the orientation of the ceiling joists in your garage. You can install supplemental braces perpendicular to your ceiling joists and then install it rotated so the gear box is on the side. However I find that it can be controlled from the side even when the box is mounted parallel to your jeep. They give you a long extension pole to use with your drill

Those that leave it hanging. Do you just use ratchet straps? Does it seem to distort the top when you go to put it back on?
