My headliner is starting to sag. Been thinking about putting some awesome headliner in. I seen a place that sells Digital Military Camo headliner. The only thing is that they sell it by the yard...
When i measured my specs of the inside its about 86" Length and 46" Width (please correct me if im wrong). So im thinking about 3 yards of headliner...
The hardest part of doing the headliner is pulling all the trim off and removing all the foam backing from the board. If I remember correctly I used 4 yards for everything, headliner, visors, and OHC. IMO this job is a 1 in difficulty. Make sure to get headliner glue, I got mine from Oreilly's auto and one can was enough for mine but it was one of the big orange cans.
The great thing about UDP jokes is no one cares if you get them or not.

Most definitely pulling off the trim sucks, but its easy work. Taking off of the old foam is easy, i just used a hard brush and scraped it off. As for material, i smoothed my headboard down and laid truck bedliner on it, i plan on removing the carpet and doing the same. It turned out pretty good, but id like to get another headliner and re-do it in a different brand bedliner.
The older the XJ the easier the old foam is to remove usually. Vacuum with the brush attachment works well.
Get some CRC spray adhesive and coat both the material and board and let them sit for 5 min or so before putting them together. Let's the glue thicken so it doesn't leave handprints. Most spray adhesive will only last a few months but the CRC is made for it. Best bet for finding it is a dealership parts department.
There's also a few guides on this in the tech section FAQ.
Anybody just paint their headliner after removing the old one?
Did mine with 3 coats of duple-color truck bedliner. Rolled it on, turned out pretty good. Would like to take it out and do a couple more coats on it, but its not too bad. Also did the soundbar that way and it turned out great!
Got the headliner back in this weekend (still have to put some trim & the soundbar back in tonight). Turned out better than expected. 2 coats of acrylic laquer as the base, then a single coat of the spray-in bedliner. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the results:
