This Fastback Top from Wild Boar is the most expensive hard top that we currently offer on the website, and it's also the most well-equipped. This top is going to have the most features. So, if you're looking for something that's very high quality, has a ton of features, and you have the budget for it, I think this is going to be a really nice option for you. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of this top, which is a very simple one-out-of-three wrench installation. This is going to bolt on to your Jeep just like any other OEM, or even after-market top, without the need to modify anything, and the whole installation shouldn't take you more than an hour, but we'll talk to you more about that in just a second.Now, right off the bat, obviously, this top is going to give you that Fastback look that a lot of you are after. That slant to the back really makes your Jeep look different from all of the other ones that roll off the assembly line. This top is going to include a headliner built in right from the factory. This has defrost, the ability to install a factory-style wiper and washer on the rear window, and something that sets this apart from the other Wild Boar Fastback tops is that this is a two-piece top. This has a targa top section. And, moreover, instead of just having that front section that you have to take off and leave in your garage before you leave the house, this top can actually be mounted on to the Wild Boar roof rack if you add that on to your hard top, so you can very easily take the targa section off, go ahead and store it, and put it back on in the event of bad weather. Again, this top is full of features if you have the budget for it. As far as construction goes, Wild Boar does make a very high quality top. This is going to be an OEM hard top material. It has an OEM finish, and from the outside, other than the different shape, it does fit and feel very much like an OEM top. But, of course, when you look at that slant Fastback style, it completely changes the look of your Jeep from the profile view. As I mentioned before, this does come with a headliner built right into it, and that headliner is designed to cut down on noise, also add some insulation. And, in my opinion, it just makes the interior of the Jeep feel much more finished than the white plastic interior of a factory hard top. As I mentioned before, the rear glass does have a couple of features as well. This comes with a defroster built in to it. It just has a two-wire pigtail so you will have to do a little bit of wiring to get that attached to your factory wiring harness, but you can do that and you will have that functionality. And, if you already have a hard top, or you're willing to purchase a wiper motor assembly, you can install that into the glass. It's already pre-drilled for it. So, again, you have a lot of features with this top that you don't get from a lot of the other hard tops on the market.This installation is definitely going to be a very simple one-out-of-three wrench install that shouldn't take you more than an hour to complete. And, every time you take the top on and off after that, it'll be even quicker. This top comes out of the box almost completely assembled. It's gonna have the glass attached to the top. Of course, the targa top and the rest of the top are separate, but this is an area that set this apart from some of the other tops on the market. Some of the other ones, you take them out of the box and there is more assembly to do. This one comes pre-assembled for you. So, the installation starts with just removing your factory top, whatever top you currently have on the Jeep, whether it be a soft top or a hard top. Once that's out of the way, you can lift the rear section of this top onto the Jeep and use the hardware to get it bolted down. Finally, just set the targa top section in the front and use the thumb screws that are included to attach that. As I said before, the glass is already in place but, if you do want to wire up the defroster, you are gonna have to do a little bit of wiring at this time to get those defrost wires attached to that factory wiring harness. And, if you choose to use your existing wiper motor, or buy a wiper motor assembly from the dealer to attach it to the glass that's pre-drilled for it, you will have to do a little bit of wiring to get everything hooked up as well. But, again, once you do that one time, every time after that it's a simple matter of unplugging things, so the next installation will be much quicker.This is what I would consider a premium top, and it has a price tag to go along with it. This top's gonna run you a little over $3,800, and it is the most expensive hard top on the site at this time. Now, as I said, I think this is worth it. This top has a ton of features that a lot of the other tops on the market are missing. Now, if you have a lower budget, you're okay giving up some of those features, then certainly take a look at one of the other tops. However, if you're looking for the most complete top and you have the budget for it, I would definitely recommend the Wild Boar Targa Top.So, whether you currently have a hard top or a soft top installed on your Jeep, but you're looking for that Fastback styling, you also want to have a targa-style top to give you the ability to get an open-air driving experience without removing the whole hard top, and a slew of other features, this is going to be a great top to look at, but you have to have a higher budget for it. So, that's my review of the Wild Boar Fastback Targa Top, fitting your 4-door 2007 and up JK, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Will the Bestop Sunrider fit this hardtop?
Thank you for your question! The Bestop Sunrider is designed for installation on factory freedom hardtops and would not be compatible with aftermarket hard tops.
Are you able to drive the wild boar fastback with the targa top mounted as shown on the highway or other? Does is lock in to place? Is there a additional small rack I see that the forward top is secured to? and did I read that this is not available yet?
Thank you for your question. You can drive with the front piece of the Targa top installed or uninstalled onto the Jeep. Wild Boar no longer offers the rack for sale that could be mounted on the back of the hard top, only complete roof racks, like: https://www.extremeterrain.com/wild-boar-fast-back-rack-jk-13006.html..
Why is this one more than the DV8 Fastback?
Each Manufacturer dictates the current pricing, each of them have their top listed as such. Both tops are relatively close in comparison as far as style, features and quality.
I am very interested in purchasing the wild boar fastback targa top for '17 jk 4 dr. I am female and would like to know how much the front piece weighs.
At this time, we do not have a weight listing for the front Targa component separate from the top.
Wild Boar Fastback Targa Top..can it be used with a Wild Boar Fastback Top that has the basket? Better yet, targo top with a basket or is there not enough room?
Thank you for contacting us! The Wild Boar Fastback Top and the Wild Boar Fastback Targa Top are both hard tops and cannot be used together. Wild boar does make a fastback roof rack that can be used with any fastback style hard top- so it will work with the Standard Fastback or Fastback Targa Top, the rack can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/wild-boar-fast-back-rack-jk-13006.html.
I love the Fastback Hard Tops as they are just different from the other Jeeps we all see. I'm OK with the Black color but would like to color match the top. Can that be done with this or any of the tops you know of?
Hello, Any modification to the top would be at your discretion. I would check with a local auto paint shop and see if they would be able to assist you.
Installation Time:Less than 1 Hour

No ETA or Communication
I've been asked to write this review multiple times now and still have not received an update or any real ETA on this hard top. I have been struggling for over 5 weeks when I was originally told a 1 week ETA. I have not received an accurate ETA after MANY calls and emails. most of those go unanswered or never returned.

Wild Boar Targa Top
We love this top.I would have rated 5 stars if it had the clips on the front of it over the windshield area to lock it down tighter. Something the manufactorer should check into adding. Other than this one small air leak everything else is great. The carpeting inside the top cuts street noise down.The color and finish is great.The install was easy.Would recommend to another Jeep Junkie!! I won't be too negative about the customer service on shipping etc from ET but they should take a look at making that better.

Replacement Parts for WB jeep top.
Do NOT buy a Wild Boar after market top!!! It leaks, the pneumatic arm fell off, and I broke a quarter glass on the driver's side and they stopped taking my calls and emails. I even had two local glass shops reach out to them and they stopped responding to them as well. Their customer service is horrible

Bangin' Fastback Top
Excellent fit and finish. took less than an hour to install. You will need to have two reasonably strong people to lift it into place. Still can't believe how easy it was. Targa top can be removed in about 5 minutes. Highly recommended!
