SW inner cage removal trick

Are there any tricks or steps in removing the inner cage hoop on a SW? I have the roof off and it unbolted but i seams to want to not want to come out. is there a trick or way to tilt it to get it out?

Randy, You have it unbolted up top, and down behind the console, and also on the front ramps of the fender wells ? From what I remember they had some sort of sealant/ tar like substance around the fasteners. What are you working on ? New project ?

if you squeeze the bottom ends together about a half inch or inch using a ratchet strap, it will move inside the vehicle much better. Obviously you don't want to crank too much...

Yeah, thats what worked for me.

Other thing to note - if you aren't careful, the mounting "ears" up at the top corners will put an ugly mark on your headliner...

And if there are jump seats back there, you might be screwed.
