MOPAR Headliner Install

I got my headliners our of South Carolina, Rick Hendrick Jeep. They call themselves MOPAR Supercenter or some such. Brandon handles the online orders. I paid $202.85 delivered. They said i was their first order for the headliners. I ordered back in late April and got them in late May. They were very nice and helpful. I went in expecting some delay, knowing they were just coming available.
I did this quick video because some JK owners seem to be interested in the product.

Hi there,

Nice video! I'm curious now how's the noise & climate after you installed those headliners? We've already hit the mid 40C (100+ F) and I'm still dithering over which headliners to buy.

Pros/cons?

I'm still running my Trektop NX. Going from the hardtop to the soft top was a big change in noise level. I kept thinking there was a window open somewhere. Now that I have the headliners, there will be even more of a contrast. I'll put the hardtop back on before too long, just to combat the Houston heat. This is my daily driver. I wanted to keep the Trektop on long enough to get familiar with it and to check it for leaks. We had a pretty good rain on Sunday and not a single drop got in!

So the Mopar Headliners are a type of foam all the way through? I may jump on this as well. My hardtop gets pretty hot under the sun.

You installation looks great btw!

I'd really like to know if the pre 2012 versions are one piece or two piece for the rear part for the 2 door hardtop. It seems in 2012 they started putting a large rib down the middle, but before that it was one big flat area.

This would help a decision. They certainly look good to go and just the right color, size, cut, etc.

There is a diagram in the instructions showing an alternative one piece headliner for the hardtop but it is designated "PRE 2011"

Here's a rough pdf of the instructions showing the "PRE 2011" style.

Very helpful. Thank you. These look like a very good deal for money. I'm glad I've already painted my hardtop black, the black on black will look much better than black on white in my opinion. Living in Florida, I have to imagine these will help a lot with the heat.

Thanks for sharing the video. Now that it has been about 6 weeks since you installed them, how are they holding up? I know it's hot in Houston, and it's hot here in SoNV, so I'm thinking your opinion would be very relevant. Thanks...

Hello and thanks for the video. My MoPar headliner will be delivered tomorrow. After pouring over the installation instructions, they indicate the rear hardtop needs to be removed. Is there any compelling reason for that? Not much fun working over your head I agree, but I'd rather not remove the top if I don't have to. Thanks in advance.

You can install without taking the top off. I am in the process of waiting for my replacements as the first set is not staying stuck on... They are more like a floor mat then the hot heads are more like a headliner. I went with MOPAR this time as you get more for the money. I would say the hotheads are maybe a little nicer but not sure they are worth the extra money as the MOPAR ones seem fairly nice. Recommend add extra tape. The dealership will be re-installing mine soon.

Thanks peanut,
Sorry to hear they're not sticking. That's a worry for me as well. Agree about HotHeads. I'm sure they're nice too but I've not examined either one closely. Good suggestion about more tape. Scotch makes some sturdy looking stuff called "Exterior Mounting Tape".

Installed the MoPar headliner package on Saturday. They're about as thick as carpeted floor mats and feel about the same though I noticed some welcome foamy insulation on the backside. They seem to be sticking well after my acetone pre-treatment. Can't say I noticed much difference in wind noise (no worries, I like wind noise) but it does add a 'finished look' if you're partial to that. Parked out in the sun today to test its heat insulating properties.

I installed the Mopar headliner kit on my JKU and think it works wonders, hot, cold, road noise, radio its all good. No you do not have to remove the top, just have someone help you and slide it in place from the back of the sound bar. Use something to press the headliner in place under the speakers, I used a wood shim. Oh no need so far for more tape, it has been in place for 4 months, you must prep hardtop with rubbing alcohol.

It is crucial to prep the surface if you want these to stick. Also, 3M 77 or 90 spray adhesive is amazing if you prep the surface and follow the instruction which say to spray both sides of what you want stuck and let them get tacky. Then stick 'em together and it will be permanent. I know because I misaligned something once and destroyed it getting it apart.

Any tips on how to do this? I have a 2012 Unlimited, never had the rear top off, would rather not bother if I can avoid.

Thumbs up

I installed mine in my '13 JKU about 2 months ago. Worth every penny when you live where it is close to or above 100 degrees for most of the summer. I did not remove the top to install. The sections above the sound bar try to stick as you're sliding it in but I was able to do it by myself. I then took some of the cardboard from the box they came in, folded it over and jammed it up and in between the soundbar and the liner to apply pressure...worked great. No issues with them coming loose!

These are outstanding. Not much difference in road noise, but better sound from the radio, and they certainly help in very cold or very hot conditions. We are on our second set. First set literally was falling down. Dealer replaced and put our Yakima roof rack on at the same time. We have had the second set for about six months, a little sagging in the corners but they are held on tightly by the bolts from the roof rack coming through the top of the hardtop. I think these are amazing the only recommendation I would have, is to use a stronger adhesive. We also have had some fraying in one of the corners, but a scissors and singeing them with a lighter fixed that problem quickly.
