    2018 SEMA American Fastback Stryker Stingray JL Wrangler Unlimited Fastback Hardtop

    So, a lot of the fastback hard tops that we've been seeing at the 2018 SEMA show have in fact been made by a company called American Fastback. For those of you who are wondering, they price out at about $4k but that includes color matched paint or you can even get it in a texture coating. There are multiple options you can add on like a powered sunroof front and rear or a rag top. And, a big push they are making with their tops are sleeper beds that'll allow a guy up to about 6' or so to sleep in the back of a JL Wrangler Unlimited. And, here's the kicker - they are also making bumpers, lift kits, offering Edelbrock Superchargers and just about anything you can think of and they are offering RV financing for all of it. In other words, they are trying to make a slippery slope a bit more accessible. Anyway, here are a few pics of a JL Wrangler with one of their fastback hard tops, fenders, cowl lights, grill, bumper and fender liners. I may have missed a few things but you'll see them.

    Extra wide fenders to help keep your tires tucked underneath and street legal in States where this is an issue.

    Close up look at the top.

    You can kind of see the sun roofs here.

    Cowl lights.

    Hate the fenders, grill, hood, and cowl lights. The top I dig though. Although if I were to get a fastback style top I would hold out for the Bestop

    So much for that... no forklift or loading dock to take delivery of the hardtop as they require. Just have to keep satisfied with my soft fastback.

    Dual power sunroofs would be cool

    Not crazy about the fenders, but they would have looked better with factory lights for the smooth profile, or something similar.

    Do the speed bumps at the mall count as crawlin?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
