The brake winch I used is specifically designed for overhead lifting unlike some of the horizontal only models you mentioned. Mine is totally unsafe when lowering, it ratchets fine and then all of a sudden without warning, will slip and freewheel a couple feet at a time ? not a good thing!
The winch is a 'boat trailer winch' (like seat belt webbing) and the pully is a boat guide pully - both from West Marine. Cool, can somebody give me the specific model number and place of purchase for a hand winch with brake and is rated for VERTICAL lifting? X with S Package, Power convenience group, Dual top, Sway bar disconnect, Tow group, 17" Wheel, Rear Locker, Infinity 6 speaker, Side steps, Steel Blue. This hoist is awsome !I am about to take delivery in 20 days of my Jeep Green sahara auto dual top here in Europe. A while back I purchased a WARN winch and receiver mount kit to allow it to be used on my truck or trailer.
Bolting directly to the deck would defeat the portability aspect of the receiver mount and would not provide a robust mount (wood deck). The principle design concepts are the a) frame clamp b) riser and c) mount plate and tube. Next I have to run the heavy duty wire from my aux battery (I run dual batteries for the benefit of my snow plow) to the back of my truck. Very neatly done I like the fact you can remove it so easily and it makes for being very practical and even an anti theft idea.
So now that you can pull the dead vehicle onto the trailer, if you ever have to get it off, guess you can always tie a chain to a friends pickup and drive the trailer off with the other end of the chain attached to the car on the trailer. I see your point but in practice the winch will be pulling almost level with the drum, which should put the mount in sheer as the winch tries to move parallel deck towards the back of the trailer.
No, you run a chain across the back of the trailer, put a clevis and snatch block on it, and run your winch cable through that and up to the front of the vehicle.

It uses the Lange commercial hoist-a-top frame, with my old TJ 'boat winch' to lift it, and 'frame' to keep the top from rotating once hoisted.
When I assembled mine according to their (poorly written) directions, it came up a few inches short.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase your maximum bid amount. Bow rollers are designed to be mounted at the front of your boat trailer right where the bow of the boat contacts where your winch is mounted.
Since you are using a different winch, I assume you also had problems with their cable puller? To lower it, I assume I just slowly crank in the opposite direction, and the brake will control and hold it as I lower, and will hold it if I stop cranking, correct? Does anybody have taken measurements of their top so i can start making plans for placing it in my small garage?

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. The device is commonly called a "winch post", and would mount your winch and also hold the bow roller in place. They tell you to put both arms into the center T until they meet, but if you do this you come up short. I could spread them further apart, but I don't trust that, especially with the tiny screws holding it together. I just don't want to get into something where I have to click a release button to ratchet down one notch at a time ? and certainly don't want to run the risk of freewheeling if the button gets stuck.
