Hard Top Insulation

OK, I know it's a Jeep and it's supposed to be cold and windy. I know if I want a warm quiet ride I should drive the wife's minivan. But,,,,, winters a comin and I was wondering if anyone makes a headliner for the hardtops that secures with Velcro or double faced tape or something. My heater works great but I think a headliner would help allot.

Flame On!

As long as you get your doors sealed up good and the heater is in good working order, you should be able to roast in there. It would help if you filed out your userCP rig specs with at least the year you are driving. You maybe able to upgrade your heater blower.

I think a roll of R-19 fiberglass insulation is about $8 at The Home Depot.

There's no reason why a hard top jeep cant be as comfortable as any other closed vehicle...to me, a coupla hundred bucks isn't too much to pay for comfort in winter, not to mention the noise deadening factor... There's also that silver heat insulation that the hot rod guys use, you can find it at Summit, JC Whitney, or any number of other suppliers...use 3M Super Weatherstrip Adhesive in the spray can, should work quite well

Wow, exactly what I was looking for. Thanks jeeepguy! There probably aren't many that would admit to it but I think a lot of people would like having this.

Why not just go to wal-mart and buy a blanket, cut it up, and sew up the edges? Would cost you a lot less than $200 to do the roof.

Believe me, the money is woth it. I like finished, OEM-type products, look and fitment and this fits the ticket. I'm not into the ghetto-look much. Well worth it, in my book, and it works great.

Another idea here

Are you using the back-seat ? If yes never mind this idea, but if like me you ride alone, then you could put a windjammer behind the front seats. This will not do much as far as insulation, but it will reduce by half the space to heat on cold days...
