    Hi everyone,
    I took the top off my truck last weekend....it was an adventure for sure. I guess I thought it was going to be lighter than what it was. I guess that makes me a puss, but it is what it is. Anyway, does anyone have a reliable, easy way to get the top on and off with just one person?

    Thanks everyone,

    :o

    the rafters in the garage or a very sturdy branch from a tree, and a "come-along" with a couple of tow staps to distribute the wieght. I believe the top of a blazer is approx. 330 pounds.

    What's really cool is the fact he can still fit in the garage. Those days are long gone for me.

    i was able to get my top off and on by myself, but it wasnt a very desirable idea. all i got to say is really think if your going to be by yourself taking it off and putting it back on, is it going to be off for the afternoon or a week and how much do you really want it off there lol. or just call a buddy.
