Soft top storage

We're getting ready today to take off the softtop and put the hard top back on. Does anyone have suggestions/pictures of how they are storing their soft tops for the winter?

Thank you,


It's A Jeep Thing.......,

I'm working on an adapter to utilize my hard top hoist. Essentially it will be a platform that the soft top can be strapped to and then connected to the hoist frame.

I rolled it up in the bag it came in hung it on some large L brackets in my garage. The windows are hanging from clamps that I screwed to the walls in the garage so that they hang straight and aren't rolled up.

I use these for the windows: CAMP-099 - Plastic Heavy Duty 3.25" Tarp Clamps Package of 12 Adjust to Various Material Thickness

Like Murdoc13 said, you can hang them up on the wall flat. And in my case, keeps the darn cats from getting near them. Which is a whole other story I'd rather not get into right now.

I understand it is best to store them flat for long term winter storage. However, what do you guys use to store them when you take the top down in summer? I was looking at a clover window roll - also do you roll the back window up or do you remove it? Want to be able to take thet top down but be able to put it up if the weather turns bad.

Last year I removed it, but I was thinking about trying to roll it up and leave it attached if the damn weather clears up long enough to try. I remove/roll the side windows.

I stick it in the storage shed in the back yard. Nothing real complicated, other than making sure it is someplace where mice and other creatures are not going to eat it.
