    Does anybody have any good ideas on removing the topper by yourself.
    It seems every time I take the top off theres always some one around to help, but when it
    comes time to put it back on no one is to be found.

    You could rig up something like this. Top Hoist.

    air ur tires down really low, then it will fit in the garage! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif or swap on some ghetto 29" whitewall tyres... it'll fit then. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    how tall is it lifted? try setting up the front of the top on the end of the bedrails and then pick up the rear of the top and slide it forward? not sure how heavy it is but it bet its heavier than the one off my 4runner, which takes 2 people to get off and on...
