    Review & Install Video

    This is going to be a factory style hardtop, but it has some features your factory top wouldn't have and is also missing a few that your factory top would have. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of this top, which is going to be a very simple one out of three wrench installation. Tops are designed to go on and off of your TJ very easily. And you can get this one installed in under an hour the first time, and even faster every time after that. But we'll talk more about that installation in just a second.This is going to be a two-piece hardtop, which means you have the target front section that you can take off very easily giving the driver and the front seat passenger that open-air driving experience. This top is also going to come with a headliner built into it right out of the box. Now, this top is going to be missing your rear wiper, rear defroster, and rear washer. So if those are going to be important to you or important in the areas that you live, maybe you wanna look at the other tops on the market. On top of the features, this top does look a little bit different than some of the other ones on the market, and certainly looks a little bit different than your factory top. It is going to be a little bit taller, has a slightly larger window in it, but the aesthetics really come down to your personal preference and if you like the look of this top over a factory top. Now, this is going to be a more expensive top than some of the other aftermarket tops that are on the market, and certainly more expensive than an OEM used top if you can find one in your area. So again, it comes down to what features you want on your top and what look you're going for. This top is made from hand laid honeycomb fiberglass, which is going to help to keep the weight down, but also keep it strong. From the outside, it's going to look very much like a factory black top. It has a very similar finish. The windows that it comes with are tinted, and as I said, the rear window isn't going to have a defrost, a wiper, or a washer.Now, the big feature that this top has, and we've mentioned it before, is the fact that this is a two-piece top. This uses a total of four adjustable latches to attach the second front piece of the top to not only the front windshield frame but also to the back half of the top as well. And all those latches are going to be adjustable, so you can make sure that everything is nice and airtight, rattle free, and nothing leaks. Getting this top installed is going to be a very simple one out of three wrench installation. And the first time you install it, it might take you about an hour. And after you do it a couple of times, you'll just get that much faster. The first step in this installation is, of course, removing your factory top or aftermarket top, whatever you currently have installed on your Jeep, remove that top completely. The next step is to have an extra set of hands, and you and a friend lift this top onto the tub. After that, you can get it bolted down with the hardware that comes with it.After that step, you can install the target top adjusting all of the latches to make sure everything is tight, and this is the part that can take a little bit more time the first time you install this. However, all of those latches do have jam nuts, so once you tighten them down, they're not something you should have to adjust over and over again.Finally, you'll have to install the back glass, which is a fairly simple process with six bolts and two hydraulic air assist grams to help with lifting that glass. Once you have those installed, you're gonna be finished. The whole installation again shouldn't take you that much more than an hour with just some traditional hand tools.This top comes in at right around $250, and there are certainly going to be some more expensive tops on the market and some less expensive tops, some kind of falls in the middle as far as the price range goes. And if you're looking for a two-piece top for your TJ, I do think that this one is going to be a pretty good option for you. However, if you absolutely want those factory features of a rear wiper, washer, and defroster, then you are going to have to look at another top. However, if you do like the look and the function of this top, I do think it's a pretty high-quality piece for the price. So if you're looking for an aftermarket hardtop for your TJ, you like the idea of a two-piece top, and you're okay with giving up some of those factory features, I think this is going to be a pretty well-built option for you. So that's my review of the DV8 Off-Road Hard Top fitting your 1997 to 2006 TJ that you can find right here at

    5 Top Rated Questions

    Will this top work with the two piece door with the soft top?

    • The DV8 Off-Road Hard Top will work with factory half doors.

    Does the back window come off?

    • The DV8 Off-Road Hard Top can have the rear window removed, however its design makes this primarily for replacement of damaged glass, and not as an every day occurrence due to difficulty and chance of damaging the hardware and glass.

    When removed, can the targa piece be carried in, or somehow on, the Jeep?

    • Thank you for your question! The Targa piece is very large, and may fit in the back of the Jeep but may be tight. I also would not recommend to carry this on the Jeep.

    Helpful (1)

    Does the rear hatch back lock?

    • Like the standard TJ hardtops, the rear window will lock when the tailgate is locked. The rear window cannot be opened unless the tailgate is open.

      Looks good

      Nice looking top. Took me about 20 hours to install. Shipping needs to be improved. I got a large scratch on the removable panel. Not worth filing a claim. Fitment of the removable panel is the hardest part. The rear latches don't open all the way because the hit the roll bar. Not sure who designed that. Can latch it tight. Rear rubber seal on the window was messed up. I have to glue it back straight after it came loose. Afer adjusting it, I think I'm good now. Looks great, but need to work on mold and make it a little better fit......$2300 is a lot for what you get.....but it looks good....

      The DV8 off-road hard top is the perfect option if you're looking to buy a hard top. Although, it's a little more pricey than some you definitely can see the quality and engineering that goes into it. The install was extremely simple and it totally upgraded my Jeep altogether.
