Has anyone done this mod? I really dislike that the interior is white. I was thinking a fer cans of matte black could cover the interior. Any suggestions will help?

I had some spray painted items in the back seat of my jeep for about 2 days.... it took a good while to get the smell out. I could imagine that spraying an item in the jeep would smell worse. I want to do it to but have held off. I was also thinking about covering the inside with pages torn out of playboy mags...

I felt the same. Installed the Rugged Ridge top insulation kit which covered most of the white area, improved temperature control and reduced sound. Will post pics

From all I've read key to a long lasting paint job is prep. Rub the interior down with rubbing alcohol real good, mask off and use a flat black paint that is good for painting plastic. I'm going to do this during the summer when I'm running without the hard top and it's hanging in the air.

I'm doing just the freedom panels when it warms up outside. I also would suggest a headliner kit. A lot less area to paint and a big difference in interior noise.

I'm going to test out some plastidip on the freedom panels first. It's only $5 a can and if I don't like it I can peel it.

Or save yourself a bunch of time and effort and get a black Spiderweb Shade and leave it on with the Hard top. You can't see the white top and you've got a sun shade when you take the top off. 99 bucks, I think. I'd pay 99 bucks not to prep and paint my hard top.

I found a local body shop that will paint the interior flat black for $80. I might just go that and ride topless for a few weeks.

I am thinking of doing this. Does anyone one have pictures? Did it make a difference? How did the plastidip work out? That was kinda what I was thinking about...

I plasti dipped mine about 2 years ago, I think it worked awesome. There are a couple spots on the back edges that could use a touch up, because my hard top hangs most of the summer. The beauty of the plasti dip is I can touch it up easily and you don't see the touch ups.
I don't think there is any noticeable change in heat/cool or road noise, it's just not thick enough for that.
