What I can control is how I respond to the issues which is I always fix them to the customers satisfaction.
Please call me at your convenience and we will decide how you would like to proceed. Also, please check your mid and rear panel before you call me.
That is my cell. Feel free to call anytime.

It's rare to find a product with this many positive reviews and praise for great customer service. This post, this thread, and the overwhelmingly positive reviews on the forum were enough to convince me. I just ordered a graphite set with side window panels for my 10A JKUR.

I had one corner of a freedom panel sag on my hothead. My fault though as if you read the revised directions it says to apply the 3M tape to the roof first then press the liner on. That's what I did for my large panels but for the freedom panels I applied tape first to the panel. Ill fix it sometime soon though not really noticeable.

The window surrounds which all use Velcro did come off. I called Mark and am getting a fix kit to install in the mail. Should solve the issues. Overall the appearance is awesome. Don't have a hot day prior to compare to. i can say that due to all the reviews I had purchased it before my jeep came in. The fit and finish are great. I do feel the acoustics are also improved. My jeep feels like a luxury SUV when all closed up. Not sure how I feel about that though

I just ordered my Hotheads w/side panels today. Looking at all the reviews I don't think I went wrong.

Just got my first JKU!

Living in Texas a liner will be a must. Mark are you going to run a sale again this upcoming week?

Don't forget to practice installing the side panels prior to removing the sticky backing, as per the directions. Love my hot heads panels and side panels.. Just wish they made something for the back

Being as I haven't seen any detailed pics of the Hot Heads, thought I would post some up so as to help a future buyer. Instead of flimsy foam insulators, of carpet types, these have a fiber board type backing, a layer of foam insulation, and a finished layer. As you can see, they are very well made. Not only do they, very affectively, keep summer temps down inside, but also dampen the resonance of the top when going over bumpy roads. On top of that, but everything is included for the install, sans paint thinner/turpentine.

Same here - ordered the full set with velcro last night to take advantage of the discount right now. I'll need these things in a month or so when things start cooking here in Dallas.

My $155 Boom Mat headliners that I installed about a month ago are holding up nicely.

Installed my Hothead Liners yesterday. The front was easy. The rear was a bit tougher since the hardtop is on, but it is all on now. I lightly sanded the surface, cleaned off the residue, and then cleaned more with acetone. I got the Ox color, which is the lightest grey. I can't stand the black interior so wasn't about to darken it even more.

I can tell there is some acoustic improvement, but I was mainly concerned about the heat radiating from the hardtop. That will be a huge help to us, mainly when exploring at altitude and at low speeds. I have not tested it out yet, since they recommend not going out in the sun for too long at 85+ degrees...for 24 hours. I have other things (CO2 mount modification, license plate bracket changes, waxing/sealing, etc.) to work on anyway, but will go out today (65 now, and will be 80-85).

I'm thinking of going for the Medium Dark Grey as a close match for the Mineral Grey bumper panels and rims on my JKUFE. Anyone have a shot of this color installed?

My only concern with Hot Heads would be the fabric used on the panels. I am trying to make my Jeep as dog fur proof as possible and I'm afraid the fur would get stuck to the panels or get trapped under the panels when it is swirling around in the Jeep. And it might be a pain to keep clean. Thoughts??

I have a couple dogs here. One of which, sheds her weight in hair every week it seems. Her hair seems to anchor itself into everything, and its hard to remove. That being said, I haven't seen any hair on my Hot Heads yet. Any hair that might make it on them, I will use a lint roller to remove, as I do on the seats. As for anything under the panels, All the other headliners have the same gaps as you would find on the Hot Heads, so the same risk would apply, regardless of which head liner you choose.

Not that I know. Would not want to use them any way as my dog likes to paw the sides a bit and she would shred them.

No paper or fiber board in the MOPAR headliners, just a rigid high-density foam and carpet material. Very lightweight. Installed mine a few weeks ago and just put the hardtop back on yesterday. Noticeable difference in the noise level. The heat insulating properties will be tested today when I go to lunch with it sitting in the sun.

The Boom Mat is also a foam material. You can push your finger into it and the indent will go away.

It was 63 degrees here today so I can't comment to the extent that these are sufficient for temperature insulation and since we only average two weeks a year over 90 here, it didn't really matter to me anyway.

A quick test drive revealed a noticeable improvement acoustically. The Inifinity's bottom end finally woke up and road noise took a nice step back.

This is one of those products, like the dead pedal, that feels like it should come installed from the factory that way.
Did you order 3M or velcro and why?
Thanks, Sue

Been hitting mid 90s here and the sun is super intense at altitude. The Hotheads make a pretty significant difference in the radiant heat that used to come down on my head form above. I still notice a slight improvement in acoustics but not as much as I would if the entire hardtop was covered. A lot of sound "loss" occurs through the rest of the hardtop. All in all, a great investment, especially since I hate heat.
