The OEM headliner is starting to fall in several places on my 97 ZJ, i was thinking of removing the whole ceiling like "ZJ This" did and gluing neoprene to the fiberglass. Does anyone have any idea where to get neoprene sheets that size? Ive only been able to find it in 51" x 83".
Any ideas besides neoprene that have rubber/foam backing for some insulation and sound deadening?

Thanks, it seemed like the best place since i used the bolt holes already in the roof to run the ground wires for the lights. Think im going to get nicer switches though these seem like if i hit them too hard they will break off.

i think your talking about the VIC. im actually considering putting mine there since i have the simple non vic screen and all the bulbs are burned out anyway. That and itll keep my friends from playing with the lights in traffic

for the price of the neoprene it would be just as expensive to pull the headliner and take it to someone to have it redone with actual headliner material.

But what you could do is find the sound deadening foam, not dynamat type stuff, and use that then cover it with whatever fabric you like.

I looked at another 95 this morning and no gray insulation crap up top. Mine must have been replaced once before I got it. Its good to know you can do that. For added insulation. I don't think I would bother though. But in the winter with wind chill some nights were talking -32. Have to put a blanket on the motor before nightfall or the block will freeze. I live an hour from civilization. Gutta hate the days when your heat doesn't work because its too cold. Cars up here should come with woodstoves.

If you do try and use neoprene you may have trouble with regular headliner/contact adhesive bonding to the neoprene. Surf/diving shops carry neoprene adhesive but I'm not sure how cost effective it is. Grainger or other industrial supply type places may have a cheaper solution.

I didn't see it mentioned but make sure you use actual headliner spray adhesive. It's about twice as much as regular spray adhesive, but you definitely get what you pay for here.

^^this...

The headliner spray adhesive is made to stand up the the temperatures and moisture better than normal spray adhesive. I used the 3M adhesive. Pay for it once and be done with it...

I think I used the autozone brand I think ill try the 3m this time. Granted I don't think much would stand up to that level of moisture. But I don't think Ill be doing that again.

Did you get the screw behind the dome light? You have to pop the lens off and there is a screw behind the light.

Jeepless for now, probably not for long

It has clips that hold it up like in the front around the windshield.
