I have the one from my 98 2-door in perfect condition. You can have it for free if you come pick it up. Sorry.

Find someone local parting out a Cherokee--that seems like the most reasonable option. I just replaced my headliner fabric last week btw. A bit of a pain, but so worth it in the end...

I did my 83 Ford Ranger with the sponge back headliner material I got from a local Hancock Fabrics. The ranger has a cardboard backing that I cleaned up, sprayed some 3M adhesive by the instructions on the can and it worked perfect. It has been on for years and is still good.
That said I have no idea of how the Jeep is done, but if it uses the same cardboard liner base and you can get hold of one you can do the same I did. It is not hard to do, just don't press hard on the actual liner material or you will get a lumpy look or worse adhesive spotting through the liner. Just go gently the adhesive will hold it perfectly with a light touch.
If you have a good fabric store they will have the stuff, or know how to get it. Should not be that expensive. Phil

Just curious, what steps did you take for replacing the headliner?

The headliner for a 2 door should be the same as one for a 4 door. Drop by the junkyard and look around for one. You will spend less time looking for good used one than you will spend trying to refurbished a damaged one.

Since there wasn't an old one in the way it was easy to do ours. Another jeeper gave us a free headliner (and all the upper trim.) out of a 95 he was parting out.
It was sag free if you can believe it lol. It didn't have any cardboard backing. It was fabric on stiff foam. We just removed all that upper trim and molding, and gently pulled it out. With all the trim out it started to fall off the roof on its own.
Installation was just the reverse. No glue needed. We put it in place and started putting the trim all back in. Other then a couple water spots, it looks 500x better in there.

Unfortunately there are a pluthera of variations to headliners on Jeeps. Some have short sunvisors w/ remote keyless electronic gadgets on them, some have speakers attached to roof. Some have all kinds of wierd crap on them. I had to reline my old one because I couldn"t find a matching fiberglass panel to replace it with. I followed this routine and it worked excellent....http://www.wlsheadliners.com/tutorials/cherokee/
Only do not use the 3M adhesive, use the stuff from Permatex (orange can) You'll need 2 cans of this stuff..can be purchased at Advance Auto Parts. Also make sure you are somewhere out of the wind.. and make sure you have someone there to help you. This glue is Super fast acting and you only get one shot at it before it sticks. If you try to pry this stuff up. you will tear up the fiberboard. (ask me how i know) good luck and take your time
