DV8 Fastback Hardtops

These have been out for a while but they are probably new to some on here.

DV8 Offroad Fastback Hardtop.

Shipping is cheaper than you would probably imagine and they come in either a ready to paint primer or in black like the factory hardtop.

Call to order from one of our authorized dealers and get shipping quotes!!

I have seen a video YouTube where they installed one of these. Great quantity ave awesome fit and finish. Plus they are stronger than the factory hard top.

I really like the look of the fastback top and I would like to have a hard top at some point. Just need to hear a few people say they don't leak like a sieve.

We warranty all of our tops and if they leak we will fix the problem. We've sold hundreds of these tops and the only time we have ever had a leak is when they are not installed properly. 100% Leak Free Guarantee!!!

We've been producing the tops for around 2 years now and at this time are the premier slantback top builder in the country. Gobi is even designing a rack around our top which will be available very soon. We've sold hundreds of them with very very few issues. The only time we've had any kind of issue is when the top is improperly installed and it has always just taken a phone call to get the issue taken care of.

That's very reassuring. Thanks. It will be a couple months before I'm ready to pull the trigger.

Good, no two door version = cash saved.

It looks really nice though, better than WB.

$3500 is with shipping included, if you get a custom quote from us we can cut that price down by up t $100. Especially if you have a business address or can get some guys to take the top out of the truck without a lift gate. The whole site has free shipping and we had to jack the price on the top up after a couple guys from Puerto Rico bought one and we lost some serious money . We are working on a shipping calculator as well for a more permanent solution.

To good to be true?

Get All,

Found this hardtop on Amazon being sold by seller DropAir for $603.14 and I cant believe that price is for real. Especially when all over the net they run upwards of $2800.

I am wondering if this is a BS listing or if its the real thing. The price sounds way to good to be true. They have pics, and questions that have been answered by the seller. Free shipping also.

Can I get your thoughts if you have any.

If this is a real price I will be ordering one as soon as I get some feedback that says it sounds like its a real product being sold by them. Sounds to good to be true but I figured I would ask if people had heard of "knock offs" being sold online.

Thanks,

Sean

Maybe that didn't come across how you meant it? You covered your loss with the green backs of the buyers who didn't screw your profit margin because of your website screw up?

The top is nice looking and is certainly better looking than the Wild Boar top, but after that post.... meh.

I have ordered a few parts from DV8 but it was after I emailed them asking about the items. The price posted on the web site seems alittle steep but once they have my order and address the quote is hundreds less than the website to a residential address.... But as you can see DV8 hasn't been active on the site for a while (since KOH). I know they are a smaller company and SEMA just came and went so that could have something to do with it.

DV8 - Fastback Top

I love my DV8 Fastback top. The quality is excellent. I also thoroughly enjoyed meeting the DV8 Team at SEMA. They addressed a minor issue I was having with my new top.



The Project is moving forward.

I managed to find me one used and it was missing some hardware so I emailed Cole at dv8 to find out how I could buy it. Cole sent me the parts overnight at no charge. Can't say I run into that too often nowadays and I think that's about as good as customer service gets.
I really like the top.... super quiet and no drips or leaks after washing my jeep.
Thanx guys.

Oh and for anyone else looking for one the cheapest I found was rubitrux for around $2100.
