Spray sound deadener on TJ hardtop?

I'm considering different options for noise reduction in my TJ. Considering spraying the inside with bedliner and fabricating a hardtop headliner out of some fabric and inch thick sound deadening foam board. I've look at sprays though as well and was wondering what the best approach is for this? I'm also thinking about painting the exterior of the top with bedliner. Let me know what works best! Thanks!!

I doubt bed liner itself is going to do much. The sound deadening board should do more. Not saying you cannot fab your own. There are hardtop insulating panels available which should also do it if you were interested. I have a hard top (for winter) and in my opinion there is not much nouse that comes through it. It's pretty thick. Depending on how you use your jeep, I think sound deadening under the thin carpet would do more.

A piece of thin scrap carpeting glued to the ceiling would do wonders to help absorb noise. A light gray color would look good without making the interior too dark.

And bedliner wouldn't help, it has a hard surface which would reflect interior noise just as readily as what it could be coating. It would only help to slightly reduce exterior noise which isn't that big of a deal.

What about this BedRug Replacement carpet? Thoughts?

Any 'rubberized' liner will help as a sound deadener. Herculiner and Lizard Skin have a good one to use. Any of the harder/Kevlar based will work, but not as well IMO.

I think he should deal with it, he drives a Jeep and noise is something that is bound to happen, soft or hard top.

That's what happens when you have a vehicle with removable appendages

But if you really want to make it quieter I advice you to listen to Jerry.
