    Welcome! Unless you always have at least two people to lift the awkward shaped hard top or have a ceiling mounted hoist there is no ez on+off. One thing on my radar is the ThrowBack top by Webasto. Its a tad expensive but a clever design that replaces the freedom tops and makes a hard top daily driver super ez to let the sunshine in while retaining the hard top for security. Monday mornings going to work would never be easier. The only con is the cost approx $700

    That is not a bad price. Webasto makes the best aftermarket moonroof hands down with a lifetime warranty. I had one installed in my 2010 Chevy truck when I bought it new. Back then it cost me $1100.

    You don't have to have a ceiling hoist. They do make a freestanding frame with ceiling hoist for your hardtop. The ceiling hoist is cheaper though.

    Can't argue with Webasto quality but $700 is approaching the range of a new aftermarket soft top. I'm saving every penny or occasional $5 I find on the sidewalk so it will happen one day soon.....LoL
