Most auto upholstery shops will redo a headliner for $100-150 or so since they're pretty easy to remove and reinstall. I don't have one in mine and it doesn't bother me, but I don't have carpet either and half the interiors a wreck. I wouldn't pull it in an XJ if the interior was in good shape.

I took mine completely out and relocated the dome light up above the rear view mirror. I really like the way it looks. At first it seemed noisy but I stuffed some sound deadening material between the roof and the cross members on the ceiling and now it doesn't sound any different than with a head liner.
i did my headliner myself in one evening. Johann Fabrics carries actual headliner material. its foam backed. they carry three colors. our grey, our tan and black. 15 dollars a yard, used 3.2 yards, and they hv some 3m spray adhesive. total cost for me was about 35 dollars because i had a coupon. its super east and look great. hardest part was furthest back around the speakers. jus spray it well and stretch it the best you can i ended up with one wrinkle back there. made me mad but when i re installed the board it ended up being underneth the trim that holds it up. i would never pay 150+ to do something i did myself in 3 hrs. tip... when using spray adhesive you spray it all over a 1.5 foot section the whole width and let it sit for 5-10 mins before rolling the fabric back. thats how long it takes to get real tacky and hold well
