"Until now, pulling the roof on our Bronco Raptor had been somewhat of a chore. However, the TopLift Pro turns a 2-3 person job into a simple 1-man operation."

Just wanted to give my opinion on the top lift pro. I’d HIGHLY recommend one of these! I took everything off in less than 10 mins, easiest thing to do with this top lift pro. I did get mine with the electric motor and I’d say get it. Putting it on with the push of a button made it so precise when installing. And I just left my top resting on the top lift itself rather than stowing it on the ground. Anyway just my $0.02.

I haven’t been able to decide if I want me of these or not. Way simple process and just easier/faster than my manual cam strap system. On the other end another large ‘gadget’ for a person that’s constantly trying to free up space.

At the moment I inadvertently made the decision for myself by installing the tuffy cargo enclosure so it effectively blocks the space needed for the TL Pro to do its thing but still highly intrigued with the idea of removing that rear top at a moments notice.

I will say removing the whole top at a moments notice is what this top lift pro does. I pulled everything off in about 6-10 mins I’d say then wife and I headed out to Costco. Once we got back we headed to a buddy of mine Bday and it was a little cool tonight so I put the whole top back on with ease all by myself. I’d say maybe 10 mins to put it all back on. For me this set up is worth it. I’m up in the Pacific Northwest so one day it’s nice and sunny then BAM wet and cold. So this top lift pro helps me to enjoy what the Bronco can offer me. Just have to ask yourself would it benefit your lifestyle.

I’ve been back and forth between getting one of these and installing a roof mounted system. The biggest issue I have with this is the space needed. I assume the raptor is too high to park the hood under the top when it’s lifted right?

Yeah I’m still second guessing my decision between the two. After using my smarter garage lifter through a cycle of top off, top on a couple times I’ve got the following feedback.

overall, I’m pretty happy with the decision.

It’s totally a one man job to remove/replace, but it’s a little challenging to guide the top in three dimensions while replacing it with one hand the other hand is lowering it via the app. The app is super easy to control speed, but it still takes one hand.

I THINK getting your truck lined up under the lifter is more difficult than getting the Top Pro lined up under your top. My situation is more difficult as I was forced to put my lifter close to the side of the garage and cabinets. My original plan to mount in the middle of my 2 car garage was vetoed.

its great vs. the Top Pro for storage in MY situation as I can load all the tops on it and store easily, out of sight (mostly). I could store just the front sections on it too (Haven’t actually done this yet though). That way I don’t have see it and park under it in my one car garage, but I guess I could park a different car under it. Also I just don’t want it in the way when I’m not using it (I have cabinets on both sides and back wall of both garages, this will block acces to cabinets and around cars which is already tight. im really trying to get less bulky items in the garage, not more.

if I had a big shop, I think I would have gone for Top Lift based on ease of use (from what I’ve seen online) vs the garage smart hoist. but I don’t.

Bottom line I think both are great, just depends on what factors are higher priorities. Good luck with your decision!

Which version do we need? The "Stock Height" or the 14" Insert version for lifted? I assume the latter, but wanted to confirm before purchase.

I love mine, I know it seems pricey but it’s super convenient and if you are like me and your shoulders aren’t what they used to be then this product is for you my friends! Not to mention it also is easy to store you too and move it around at ease.

I enjoy mine and agree it is easy to use and move around just by myself.
