Then like I said above, remove it, clean it, repaint it or re-fabric it. But don't leave it out. Just realized I may not have explained that clearly. I didn't paint the interior roof metal, I painted the board and reinstalled it. Sorry for the confusion.

I didn't notice any noise difference. It's not like our XJ's are the quietest anyway. I did line the roof with some adhesive aluminum flashing I got a Lowes. It is almost the same thing as Dynamat, but at a fraction of the cost.
Here are a few pics. I did my headliner in black because it matches my trim, but for a few extra dollars they can color match.

That line-x actually looks really neat. So did you pull the headliner and prepare it all down to the fiberglass and then just have the shop spray it? I wonder how gray would look.

Yes, I pulled the headliner and did all of the cleaning. It really wasn't that hard. Just a little messy on the cleaning.

Gray would probably look good since that is what came in our Jeeps. You could always ask your local LineX shop if they can show you some examples of different colors to help make your decision. I will say the only downside to the black, if you consider it a downside, is it does make it a little darker in the Jeep.

I also got a can of flex seal and sprayed the speaker covers, dome light, and sunvisor brackets. I still need to spray the rear dome light as you can see in the picture. I always forget to do that since I rarely see it.

Did that not clog up the speaker covers?

The flex seal was to give the speaker covers and dome light a textured appearence to match the headliner. I am sure you could use black paint or plastidip or just leave them the original color.
