    2018 SEMA American Fastback / Cliffride Escape 365 White JL Wrangler

    So today I learned that Cliffride is actually American Fastback and it's the name that they use for their off-road line of products. This would include their bumpers, lift kit packages and overland pop-up roof top tents like the Escape 365 you see here. Personally, this is the top that they make that I'd be most interested in as it offers a convenient way to provide sleeping accommodations that don't require you to completely unload your Jeep. The only real downside to a top like this is that it weighs in at about 500 lbs. and that's without any of the gear you might be carrying with you. In other words, you really need to have a suspension system that can carry to load just to sit level and being that all that weight is up high, your center of gravity will be a bit off. As far as price goes, this top clocks in at $8k but that price does include color matched paint and of course, American Fastback offers RV financing and warranty.

    Interesting...but now only a two seater?...and you have to climb over all your gear to get into the tent from the inside? Would have been better to have an outside ladder I think and keep the seats

    American Fastback/ Cliffride does not seem to like the look of the stock grill.

    Yeah put the stock grill back on it, besides that, this version would be more suitable for trailing. I like the idea of camping anywhere!

    I like that top a lot. Not the fastback ones though.

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.
