JK Headliner?

I remember seeing a headliner for JK hardtops in one of the 4x4 mags when the JK first was released. They were basically insulated fabric that I believe were mounted into the single walled areas of the top. I know that they also made the headliners for other wrangers as well. I think the website was Jeepman.com (it's not) or something like that......anyone remember?

My kids are roasting in the back seat and the inside of the top is so friggin hot. I am thinking about making my own with some of that radiant heat barrier that they use in attic spaces and then wrap it in something that would look nice if I can't find this guy.

Thanks!

I don't remember, but yes someone was selling a fabric liner for the top.

Also some did a DIY by taking the heat barriers you can unfold and put in your windshield and they glued them to the top. Hopefully someone will remember who did it and post a link.

justrok:

I think what you are referring to was an article written by "mrsig" in August 2008.

Try the search engine at the top of the page and search on "Heat Fix for Freedom Top".

The actual article is on page 15. Good article. I may try this this summer.

Hope this helps your kids

Thanks guys. It is not the same guy that I remember, but it will work! I wish they had added a radiant heat barrier, but I am sure that it is better than nothing. I will post up comments when I get it.

In the past I had made some prototypes that worked pretty good. I was getting ready to put them in pruduction until I saw that someone had already putt hem into circulation.
Thay work really really good! Testing them last year in the California summer sun with a laser thermometer there was a 15-20 degree difference between the side with than without.

Has anyone installed this product and care to share the results? The heat from the roof must be a huge contributor to the cabin temp.

Hi Guys,
I know this thread is a little old, but I thought I'd share my solution to the hardtop heat: HotHead Headliners. I designed these headliners to solve the heat problem, but they also reduce road noise, keep heat in when it's cold out, and they look like a factory product.
You can see them at: www.hotheadheadliners.com
Thanks
Mark

I 100% absolutely agree with this. I just installed mine a few weeks ago, and they are awesome. Totally worth it.

I can get these for you:

Pretty inexpensive alternative is to buy some insulation at Home Depot (4x8 sheet) and go buck wild with 3M double sided tape and a utility knife.

I'd stay away from the offroad Heros headliner simply because you will probally want to use it this winter. If you order one today, and luck is on your side you may see it in the new year.
