Just go into your local Dealers parts Department. Ask for the Mopar accessory brochure and it will show you all of the additional item's that are available from Mopar for your JK.
I have had this brochure for about three months and yes the liners are in it.
The Brochure is free.

I think his question is when will he actually be able to put his hands on a set. He brochure was first posted in this thread in October, and people have ordered, but to date non one has actually received a set of these.

These Just arrived today.. here's pictures. They are extremely lightweight. I have never seen the hot head headliner's in person, so I have no way to compare.

I feel like these wont last too long with just tape ..... houston heat has a way of destroying any double sided tape that I've ever used on an interior.

Thanks for the pictures. Any idea how thick they are? How much headroom is lost?

I'm not overly impressed with these. I think I'll be sending them back to MOPAR. I'm going to go with hot heads this time around

Hotheads are really thin, but they are nice. Boom mats are pretty thick (and from what I hear, nice as well).

I think the Mopar ones might need a better double sided tape.

I have been researching this also and decided to go with the boom mat and ordered them. Went to pick them up yesterday and opened the box up there. I was not happy at all. Looked like a 3M nightmare and didn't feel they would last that long. Told them to send them back and went home and ordered a set of Hotheads.

Anyone have a pic installed in the two door JK (mine is '09). Not too keen on the back part being two pieces, if that's what it is. Everyone else--Boom Mats, Hotheads--has one big piece.

I just ordered these from the dealer. Found the install instructions online. The instructions show the side windows as part of the kit. I also had a 20% coupon from my dealer, which helped. The dealer said that they are shipping from the manufacturer but was unable to tell me the name of the company. Should get them in 1-2 weeks...Joe

This (seven month?) thread is absurd. "Any updates?" "Anybody get their order yet?"

Great customer focus, Mopar. Very 196--I mean 2013. Idiots.

this seems to be a common theme... so far a few confirmed receipts but no installations to date and one member at least got them, was unimpressed and returned them to get hotheads. I wonder if this product is going to be on par with the hotheads or potentially better.

Mine are installed. They look good, seem to reduce the noise a little bit. Install is easy. I did it without removing the main hard top. I did remove the Freedom panels. Hardest part is getting to the area above the sound bar. We'll see how they hold up.

They are 1/2" thick. Any thicker and there would be interference with levers and such. BTW they make a big difference - noise and heat.

Thanks Reece! I remember seeing your video but was having trouble finding the link via my phone. Also, someone put a comment on your video and asked a question.

So they've been holding up well in the heat/humidity of Houston so far? I'm in AZ, so it certainly gets hot here.

I've seen 107 degrees on my dash thermometer - no loosening, good insulation. Even with temps that hot, on the freeway, I comfortably run the AC and fan 2 clicks from wide open.

2 clicks from wide open? I never have it that high even when it was 113 a few days ago.

He anwers your question and you bust his chops? Ouch!

It's hard enough finding someone who has these installed. Like finding bigfoot.

Bust his chops? What I'm saying is that sounds high to me WITH liners, but it may have been 110F with 100% humidity. Calm down, Skippy.

For $200, these are a great addition to the Jeep. Even ignoring the sound and insulation improvements, they provide a much more finished look to the interior.

No harm no foul. The JK has a great AC, made better with the smaller volume of a 2 door. In Houston in July, anytime we can run our AC's on anything but wide open, we tend celebrate and even brag a little. Did I say 2 clicks? It might even have been 3!
