  • Could a modification or alternate kit for the Ursa Minor JKU camper top be made available (differing height, weight and fulcrum)? I'd be very interested.

    Yes. We could potentially make a custom option for you. Give us a call at 309-838-6249. Thanks!

  • Will this system work on a Jeep Gladiator?

    Yes it will. I have designed straps to work with the Gladiator. We are waiting on our filming company to shoot the how to video so we can post and add to our website. We do not have the ordering option on our website yet but I can sell you a kit and send some pics on how to use the Gladiator kit. I have personnally removed a Gladiator top several times and really like the way it works. 

    Thanks Marc Petersen

  • Does it work with the 2018 JL Rubicon Unlimited

    Yes it does, the JK and JL are the same lenght so our 4-Door kit will work.

    Thanks Marc J-BARR Team

  • Any issues with rubbing or staining on a painted top?

    Steve, tahnks for the question we have not had any complaints with paint rub as we use a micro fleece cover to slide were the pressure point is were the straps meet the paint. This works very good and promotes long term storage. We have had customers hang them all season with no complaints.

    Thanks Marc Petersen

  • Hello, can this be attached to a power winch system?

    Hey Art,    Yes it can. We have many customers that have or will buy an eletric winch seperately and use that instead of the manual winch we sell with our kit. We do have a kit option that that we sell that includes everything except the winch. So it has the J-BARR, straps, and mounting hardware. Give us a call if you have any questions 309-838-6249. Thanks!

  • Can I purchase just the j bar padded straps and pins?

    Hi there,  Yes you can. In the dropdown menu when you select  what model you need there is "non-kit" option. This includes just the J-BARR and straps. This is a good option if you already have a winch in place and just need something to attach to your hardtop.  Please call us if you have any questions.    Thanks!    

  • I have a 2018 JL 4 Door Sahara. 9'4" Garage ceiling height. Recommendation?

    Tim, thanks for checking our product out. Your ceiling height will work with our product. When you get a chance go to our website www.j-barr.com and click on the blog link at the bottom of the page. There are some pics about ceiling height with measurements. The ceiling were those pics were taken was 9' 1". If you have any questions please feel free to call us.   Thanks!

  • Could you please give me a price for a complete kit with 25’ cable that will fit a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited LJ hardtop? Hopefully you have one for it.

    Dave, I have made straps for this model already. Just go to our web site and order the kit you need. Then in the comment section please put in the make a year of your Jeep. This takes a special lenght strap. It will take a couple of days to have made up. Our basic Kit is 299.99 and our full kit with the winch, brackets and all hardware is 399.99. We charge 19.99 for shipping to the lower 48.   Thanks Marc Any questions please feel free to call me 309-838-6249.

  • Is the strap sitting right on the seal of the door and window? How does it not damage the seals, then cause leaks in your jeep when you put the top back on?

    Hi there,

    Great question. We have used and tested the strapping for years now and have had no issues with leaking or tearing of the rubber seal. Also the strapping displaces the pressure more evenly across the seal. Thank you!

  • How do we position the bar/straps so the top is balanced and not front heavy or back heavy? Our son gave this to us without directions. It works very slick, but just the balancing problem with the 2018 4 door Jeep Wrangler. Is there a direction book? Thank you

    There are orange balance marks that are sewn into the straps. Just position them at the rear door opening and the rear hatch opening. This is a very close starting point to balance your top. 


  • How do I know if I need a 25 or 50 foot cable??? What is best for wrangler 2017 Sahara unlimited???

    Hi there!

    The 25ft cable is usually more than enough. The only time you would typically need the 50ft cable is if you had very tall ceilings 12ft plus. We typically recommend buying the 25ft if you are unsure and if you need a longer one just let us know and we can ship the 50ft cable out and charge the difference in price at that point. Customers who typically buy the 50 ft cable need it for barns and facilities like that. Not your standard home garages.  Hope this helps!

  • Hello, I have a Jeep Wrangler TJ 2006. Do you have a lift that will work for my 2006 TJ hardtop?

    Hi there. 

    Yes, we do. Please place an order on our website for the kit option that you would like then in the notes put your model of Jeep and we will send you the appporiate kit option. We custom make these but have a few in inventory at all times. For more questions email or call 309-838-6249. Thanks!
