Yes, I have a Jeep - a YJ, 20 years old this year. I sometimes do basic maintenance in the parking area, but nothing like dropping a clutch or anything like that. The bonus with my parking is that I can lift the top of the Jeep by myself. I hang it from the beams of the roof and just drive out from under it. Takes about 15 minutes to achieve if you are quick at unscrewing.

Luckily I'm 6'3" tall and 200LBS. No need for beams and hoists. I just slide my hard top back and dead lift it onto a set of chairs in my father-in-law's garage. :D

Neat. I have removed the hard top like that before - and I am about the same height as you weighing 12 stones, but I almost dropped it once because I didn't balance correctly. Besides, if I did it like that I wouldn't have any space to put the jeep - now I can park the Jeep under the roof, saving space. I also have a big motorcycle to cater for in one parking square.
I don't use pulleys. I hang 4 pieces of rope from the beams where the corners of the roof are when the Jeep is parked. I have attached metal hooks to the end of the ropes. I just lift the front part of the roof onto the hooks, and then do the same with the back so the roof is suspended, and then I reinforce the ropes by supporting the underside of the roof with tow lines, also hooked onto the ceiling.
That's a nice Jeep by the way, and a very nice colour. What are your rear lights - thy're non-standard?

Don't get me wrong, I was just being cocky when I shot that video haha! If I could use ropes to lift it I definetly would.
Can't drill anything in that garage though. :roll: Thanks for the kind words on my Jeep. Thoses tail lights are LED. they're sold by a US company named Off Road Only (ORO).
