Hey guys, I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the DV8 Off-Road Fastback Style 2-Piece Hard Top, fitting all 2007-2016 4-door JKs. Most of you guys know the benefit of a hard top over a soft top: they're quiet, they stand up to the elements over time a little bit better, and they're more secure. Well, this has all those features and more, plus the unique fastback style gives your Jeep a complete different look over stock.DV8 sets themselves apart from other fastback hard tops in the market by having some additional features and being a little bit more affordable. This top is really well-constructed. I would say it's built as well or better than an OE top and definitely has more features. One of those features that you'll notice right away when looking at the top is the fastback design, and I know that's what a lot of you are after. It changes the otherwise boxy look of the Jeep into something more sleek, and totally changes the look of the vehicle from the profile view.The top is built with hand-laid honeycomb fiberglass which keeps the weight down, but makes sure it stays nice and rigid and very strong. The interior of the top is carpeted which cuts down on road noise, adds some insulation against hot and cold, and it looks really good, especially compared to the white interior of an OE top. The exterior of the top features tinted glass, rear defrost, and gas-lift gate shocks.There are a few areas of fit and finish that leave a little something to be desired; one of those is around the wiring for the rear defrost and the other is the exposed bulk heads on the rear lift gate hinges. This installs just like a factory hard top onto the Jeep. The first step is to completely remove whatever top you currently have on the vehicle - whether it's a hard top or a soft top - and this will drop right into place using the supplied hardware. As far as tools, you'll need a socket set and some torque specs. You can expect the install to take about two hours, with part of that being just to get this thing out of the crate. You'll definitely want a second set of hands because it is a large part to be moving around, but if you follow the instructions you'll be sure to end up with a leak-free and airtight seal. There is some wiring involved for the rear defrost and if you decide to get the optional rear wiper motor assembly.There aren't too many fastback hard top options out there. If you want the benefits of a hard top with the unique fastback styling, this is a good choice. DV8 did a good job with these tops and even though there are some minor fit and finish issues, this is still less expensive than some of the other options out there and overall, it's a good value. That's my review of the DV8 Off-Road Fastback 2-Piece Hard Top that you can find right here at Extremeterrain.com

OMG I love this hard top. It was easy to install, all of the holes lined up, which I was nervous about after reading the other reviews. I just wish they packaged the stickers separately - mine came stuck to the shipping crate and were not usable.Helpful (1)

Completely changed the profile of my Jeep
I usually feel better writing reviews about something that I have had for a while. Once it has been "broken in" for a while. But I am extremely happy with this top. I had it installed by Bill at Hurst Auto Body in Tullytown Pa. It took him a little over 2 hours. There were some slight adjustments he had to make but when I went to pick it up I was amazed how good it looked. I asked Bill what he thought of it and he said he couldn't believe how well made it was. There were some minor adjustments I had to make. The first real bad rainstorm we had there was a little leaking, But after I tightened the driver side connector it took care of the problem. It also makes for a more quiet ride. Especially on the highway. I have to say, in the end it was a little more than I expected to pay ( the top, delivery and install ) ran me close to $3500 but I do like the top. I'm looking forward to see how it holds up in the winter. When I have a chance I will take some photos and post them on here.Helpful (2)

Fit and finish is not up to expectations. Wiring not complete for rear defrost. DV* needs to ship with black screws for the back glass instead of silver. Several impact marks all over the top. Worse wind noise ever from the "freedom panel" Shipped without the DV8 badges. Like, seriously, you would think that is something they would make sure was done right. I get its a Jeep and eventually I will create more damage to the top but let me do the damage to it. I know this all seems petty but for the price..Helpful (13)

2 piece ranger hard top
I got the two Piece ranger hardtop. The back holes were 2 inches off and had to redrill. Both back windows leaked. Inserts in back glass leaked horribly. Ordered a different top first that was in stock on site but waited 3 weeks to tell me they didn’t have it. Got this top for a “deal”. So as far as the top for the money it’s not really worth it if i have to spend another hour fixing the problems. Actually with all the problems I had even receiving my top i wouldn’t recommend this top or this site to anyoneHelpful (16)

No decals on hardtop and poorly made
Had this for less than one year and it is already falling apart. The installation was very difficult because it didn’t fit properly. This item was poorly made and I invested money for something that did not last long. Very disappointing.Helpful (11)

This is a great top - fit is good and easy to install. I would have gone 5 stars if the hinges for the rear window had caps to conceal the screws.Helpful (6)

Looks good, very annoying mistakes.
Everything with my hard top was great. Until getting to the latches that seal it up front. The holes was not lined up at all so I’ve had to jerry rig it and it’s still today not perfect. Very annoying to spend nearly $3,000 and it not be perfect. Looks great. But i didn’t purchase it just for looks. I called for customer service and they said “first time we’ve heard this, you should call Dv8” but I see the same issue in these reviews?? So I called DV8 several times and can’t even get someone to pick upHelpful (9)
I currently have a soft top. Do I need any hard top installation kits/wiring with this top?
Hello, the DV8 Off-Road Ranger Fastback 2-Piece Hard Top does not need any additional components to install when you originally have a soft top. If you were looking to add a rear windshield wiper you have the option to do so if you purchased the factory parts.
Can you store the removable piece in the jeep or do you have to leave home?
We would suggest storing the sunrider portion of the DV8 Off-Road Ranger Fastback Hard Top 2 Piece at home to prevent it from getting damaged, but it may fit inside of the vehicle with the seats folded down but will take up a large amount of space inside of the vehicle.
Is this compatible with the Wild Boar fastback? Our back window portion needs to be replaced and wondering if you can just buy the back piece of this and will it work with it?
No, this cannot be used in combination with Wild Boar hard top models.
What is the weight difference from a Hard top fastback compared to the factory supplied 3pc
We do not have the factory hardtop weight but this will weigh around 230lbs.
Can you use the stock T-Tops with this setup?
You cannot use the stock Freedom Panels with this top.
The DV8 Off-Road 2-Piece Ranger Fastback Hard Top will cause you to lose a fair amount of cargo space above the top of the tailgate.
Hello! This does have a defroster built into it, however, we do not carry the wiring or switch. You can purchase these items separately.
The weight of the item is approximately 250 lbs.
The DV8 Off-Road Ranger Fastback 2 Piece Hard Top is not compatible with the sunrider for hardtop.
The DV8 Off-Road Ranger Fastback would not be compatible with your factory freedom tops due to differences in design.
The DV8 Off-Road Ranger Fastback Hard Top 2 Piece will arrive in black. You can take it to a body shop and have it painted should you want to.
Thank you for your question! No, currently we do not have a trade in program for factory hard tops.
DV8 Off-Road Ranger Fastback Hard Top 2 Piece would fit a 2012 unlimited sport as well. This top would fit any Jeep wrangler from 2007-17 4 door.
The DV8 Off-Road Ranger Fastback Hard Top 2 Piece does not include a rear wiper option with the top.
