Awesome thanks so much for the direction, also your JK looks awesome I also have a "Dozer" jeep, and was considering the Wild Boar fastback, any idea where I can view prices and options online. I will owe you big time for this one ( if you know of a site) Thanks once again for all the help ( I can use all i can get
No problem, I don't know a whole lot myself, just learning as I go and having fun doing it.
About the Wild Boar, it was huge soap opera for me to actually get it, as the folks over there were changing manufacturers, and then other delays, and long story short it was something like 6+ months between the time I paid for it and the time I got it. I certainly assume that was a perfect storm of bad circumstances, and that the normal turn around time is a few weeks, and not half a year!
That being said, I LOVE the fastback hardtop. Coming from a soft top, it is amazing how much stability a single piece hard top gives your Jeep. On top of that, unlike the freedom hardtop with its unlined white fiberglass interior, the Wild Boar is lined inside with dark gray carpet, which not only looks good, but REALLY helps cut down exterior noise (especially if you're running off road tires on the highway
). Lastly, the optional sunroof is a nice touch.
The only downside of course is that the thing is a BEAST to get on/off. You will NOT being doing that regularly, and you'll want either a hoist in your garage or a good (and strong) friend or two to help you. Two can do it weight-wise, but it's a lot easier to guide it on without scrapping the crap out of your paint with three.
And of course, the look is very distinctive. Love it or hate it, there's not another one around here like it.
Their web site http://www.wildboarproducts.com/fastbacktops.html
has a lot of info, but you'll need to shoot them an email for a quote. You'll also want to factor in shipping, which is several hundred bucks. They do a heck of a job shipping it though:
Lastly, you can check out this post for a list of upgrades I've done:
Like I said, I don't know a lot, but I can help a bit with anything on this list.
Hope that helps,
