Ok cool thanks! Planning on buying a set before the sale ends. Trying to keep the outside noise lower more than the heat/cold.

I only put the mats on the Freedom Top, need some warmer weather outside to take the rest of the top off. But just with the Freedom top covered it has made a noticeable difference in sound and the amount of cold felt. Can't wait to see how it does with all the panels installed and the full summer heat. The entire contact surface is covered with 3M type tape so every square inch has adhesive holding it on.

I almost went with Boommat...
But two things stopped me.
1. It did not come in brown.
2. The instructions require the top to come off (not sure if it needed to or not). I don't have a lift, my wife is pregos, and my garage is full of stuff...so the top wasn't going to come off this time of year.

You may be able to do it with the top on but it looks like it would be a PIA.

I ordered the "slightly damaged" ones from hotheads at like 174 or something it was a great deal. I got them opened up and truly I can't see the lines he says are in them and that is laying them down face up during the day in the sun let alone hung up in the underside of the roof of the Jeep. Great deal and great packaging. I can't wait to put these in my Jeep when I get it!

You dont need to remove the hard top. The kit I got came with instructions where to place the 3M tape and a little roller to press the 3M adhesive into place. The install was easy. I got the kit when they were on sale that included panels for the 2 rear window as well. It does make a lot of difference ... the sound accoustics are much much better and looks great too. Most improtant is I noticed that when I leave my Jeep parked outside overnight ... it is not as cold when I start it up in the morning. I used to freeze the top of my head and had to wear my cap.

I'm really wanting to pull the trigger on this! How does a person go about getting one of these "slightly damaged " sets!! This will be the first summer with the jk, last summer when it was hot, I'd just drive the Ford with cooled seats instead of the tj with a soft top. Sold it all an got the jk! Need to do this before it gets miserable!

For all current Hotheads owners:

I am looking for more sound dampening. Do you feel they make a significant difference in keep the outside noise to a minimum?

I'm not expecting Lexus quite...but in stock form it's pretty loud

Moderate difference. Less outside noise, tunes sound better

So worth the money? I'm leaning towards the Hotheads. Just waiting for another special to go on.

I like them because they seem to blend in better than the other headliners I seen. The other seem more bulky.

I've had my Hotheads on for over a year and think they are one of the best mods I've done. Great for the Arizona heat and helps with the acoustics quite a bit. Well worth the price and I would definitely do it again.

One thing holding me back is the black hot heads contrasting with the white top interior. It looks OK but I have been considering painting the exposed part of the top interior black to match the liners and my seats (black leather).

It just occurred to me to paint the top interior silver to match my paint and trim. I am going to pull the trigger as soon as the next sale is announced.

I cant say that they made it quieter, but I can say that when I was just shopping for a 2013 10A Rubi, When talking to a salesman in the Rubi they had on their lot that didnt have hot heads vs my 2012 that does, It was a noticeable diff in the echo of our voices.

If you go with the Boom Mats they come in white, black or gray. I have a set that I'll probably be installing later tonight. I'm bringing the hard top in the house and turning it upside down on the carpet and let it cure overnight.

Hey Tom,

I BRIEFLY thought of painting the inside of my hardtop, but I rode in a buddies TJ that he had sprayed black. Was okay during the day, but morning/evening/night, it was a damn cave in there. Just be aware it darkened the interior a surprising amount.

I ordered up the saddle to match my leather for mine, so cant confirm long term.

Good luck though my friend!

I love my hotheads. Def. makes a difference in noise during highway driving. My only gripe is that the freedom panel scctions keep falling off. Once a week I've gotta stick them back up there.

You should contract hot heads, they will send you new adhesive I'd bet. Just make sure you prep the surface before you put then back on, that's extremely important!

Why does the hardtop have to be taken off to install the Boom Mats and not the Hotheads? Either way, I need to get a lighter color.

yeah I've been meaning to call them. I cleaned it with acetone like they suggest when I first installed them three weeks ago. The rest of the panels stick great. Just having issues with the front two. Still a great product anyways.
