Yea I have to back in - but because of shelves I have at the rear of garage I can't back in enough (by about 10 inches)I get the rigging deal! I park forward, but have to back in to pull the top.....it’s the only way I could clear the garage door opener. It actually worked out measurement wise as I can pull forward right under the top and leave it hanging. I probably spent 2 hours measuring the truck, moving it in forwards and backwards to make sure I was going to land everything where it needed to be to actually work and hang where I needed it to. It all worked out pretty nice, I use one hand on the remote and one on the hoist bar to guide it up or down without touching a damn thing until it sits the alignment pins in place.
