Bought a used 07. Smells like smoke. Im replacing the metal lining things. But it still has a faint smell. Any suggestions?
That's hard to get rid of the smell gets into everything vents , seats, carpet , roll bar padding , metal , plastic ,etc.
wipe and scrub everything with a good cleaner for smoke or hit a skunk and you'll forget all about the smoke smell .
Eat a lot of beans and then...no, wait, that only replaces the odors.
Take the top down and leave it down for a few days. Worked wonders for mine!

I bought my Jeep used and it had a smoke smell that was mildly noticeable and very noticeable on warm days. The dealer gave me a product to set off in my Jeep and let sit (top on, windows up) for a day, longer if possible. I followed the directions, kept it out of the sun and closed for about 48 hours, and it really worked well. I don't have the product container here with me but I'll double check tonight and post. I was impressed how well it did, it did leave a bit of a Ozoneish odor, but I ran topless most the summer and I wiped down the inside of the top last time I had it on.
The packaging looked like this, I'm almost positive this is the one I used.
If you can get an ozone machine, I have found they work really well.
When I was a teenager working at a dealership detail shop, we would use them in cars often and they did a good job of getting rid of the smell. We would just stick the machine in the front seat and turn the a/c on high and recirc then let it sit there for several hours.
