Looking to build a hoist to store Hard Top

I'm looking to build a hoist to store my TJ hardtop using a small electric winch from Harbor Freight . Has anybody built or have plans for a system to store their hard top on the ceiling?

A Kid can never have enough sets of wheels!!!

Use the search button. Lots of threads on that topic. I used two rachet straps to attach the roof to a piece of uni-strut that has hoked to a chain hoist attached to a garage rafter. Total cost about $55.
