Y-Guy I'm debating about putting some white Plastidip on top of my roof if need be, though I hope to make it through the summer without the top. My though is if I need the hard top to keep cool I'd paint the top about 1 1/2" from the outside edge so it's not very visible and use the Plastidip so I could remove it if I didn't like it.

I read someplace the folks that sell the Hothead liners shipped to somebody in Indonesia so shipping to you shouldn't be much of a problem.

Tweak This will be my first summer owning my jeep in Texas. 110 isnt that far from 120, interested to see how bad it is.

foudary Thanks for the responses everyone I think I'll go for the homemade version. Nothing wrong with mom's oven mitts with the flowers on them...

There's an ice cream factory nearby. Hmm...

p0larb3ar Lizardskin is a good product to look into, they use it on engine bays for drag cars and it's what I plan on lining my hardtop with

jkjeeper06 FJ cruisers and Mini coopers have white roofs and body color sides and I personally don't think they look that bad. You could paint just the top of the roof white. If you don't want to see it, you could leave the outer inch of the roof black and the jeep is tall enough, no one would really notice. That would cut down on heat absorption

Garyk Other than painting the roof white, my research resulted in Hot Head or Boom mats

kbwwolf Hothead liners, as mentioned above. Not sure if you can get em there, but...

There's also a version made by Boom Mat, I believe.

Superheated Roof! (120+)

I'm not sure if any of you have ever been to my part of the world during the summers...I don't advise you to.

Unless you're a camel with plenty of sunblock.

We get temperatures over 48C (120F) in the shade for a couple of months. So imagine a black Jeep in direct sunlight.

Who can tell me of a decent roof insulation/noise dampening product that has been tested already? (Any Death Valley or Mojave folks out there?!)
