Today I took the cheap eBay bumper/frame supports off and replaced them with a set from Poison Spyder

Pretty straight forward! However I'd recommend use as many pulleys as you can to raise it. I did something similar last year and I did the T-bar method with 1 point of connection to raise it - it does work however the top spins around when raising it. Hopefully next spring I will add 4 corner pulleys so this keeps it square as I raise it. You can see some pictures in my 05 LJ build thread.

I started early this morning. I can pick up the hardtop by myself, but I can't maneuver it off without damage or scratches. Some day I will add a pulley system or some kind of hand crank, but for now this works for what I need.

Here is another pick. I just lifted from the center, and had my wife undo the hooks.

Ah I see yah that works, wasn't sure if you meant for a few days storage for longer term.

What I did I put mine up for 4-5months so leaving it outside would deteriorate it Needless to say still innovative what you did!

I used pressure treated lumber so I can break it down to 3 pieces and store it outside in my side yard storage area. But for less than $40 it works for what I need.

As for my top, I have an dolly that holds it in the vertical position, and I will store that in the corner of my garage.

Nice and simple. I use a similar method with 2 2x4's, some tie down straps, and 2 metal poles. The carport helps too.

I don't know if anyone is actually fallowing my build or not. But just wanted to say I know it's slow and boring, sorry for that.

You think your build is slow. I gave up on mine it's so slow. Your jeep is just so dang clean.

I started to install a rear Currie Antirock. I'm taking my time installing it. One good thing while installing a rear Antirock is I previously installed a1.25" body lift. If I had only a 1" BL I would of had some trimming to do, but with the 1.25" I fits without. It's tight but so far so good.

This is as far I got for today, just the brackets fully bolted on. I will say Currie's direction are really good, 35 steps for installing a rear Antirock but the only thing I won't do is the axle brackets. I will have a shop with a better welder install them.

Tomorrow I will continue to fit the arms and start some trimming for arm clearance.

Yesterday I finally started the trimming for the rear Antirock arms. Here is a photo of the drivers side. I only trimmed out the size stated in Currie's directions. I will trill more later if needed.

Here is the passenger side after trimming and some spray paint. I have decided to not reinstall the rear plastic fender liners.
