Ok...so I just installed a winch in my attic that has 2 x4 trusses supporting the home roof...I'm now getting a little concerned that a may be taxing the 2 x 4 trusses with the weight of my Bronco top...I can't find anywhere how much the tops weigh...does anyone have any idea? Thanks for any thoughts on the weight and having a winch system in the ceiling to remove the top...here are some pictures of what I did...

That should be completely fine. I have used a bike hanger for mine for 2 years now without issue. Here's the weights.

you will be fine, back top weighs about 75-85 lbs , the two front panels weigh about 20 lbs each , total together 120lbs , maybe ?
I have the same setup except the metal iron , I bolted the hoist to my joist directly and I lift it all up with the front panels on top of the back bronco top.
using a 2x6 as the equalizer for the lift..
been doing this for two summers now.

@Onestepmore I like your above the ceiling solution. My experience with construction makes me think your mounting structure would be significantly more stable if you were to tie it into the trusses on the ends. Better safe than sorry 🙂
