Yeah, I actually just replaced my headliner in my 97 jgcl, very easy job, first u need to go measure ur headliner length, I forgot what it was, don't worry bout the width and go down to hancocks or ur fabric store and pick up some automotive headliner fabric u can't use just ne thing cuz it has to have that foam stuff on it, then get some like 3m spray adhesive or glue, down to the work now, u need to remove all covers on the side seatbelts around the doors, use a slim screwdriver they'll pop out, and the use a wrench to remove the seat belt anchor bolts underneath, ur head console slides forward and out, be careful cuz u have to disconnect the little electrical clip that goes to the lights before u yank it down, also remove the panel at the end of the roof above ur cargo bay and unscrew ur visors, also have tiny little electrical clips to disconnect, everything outof the way now pull out the two retaining pins in the center of ur headliner with a screwdriver, pull ur entire headliner board down be careful with it and slip it out through the rear cargo door, this next part is messy so it helps if u have shop vac, ur gonna pull off all the old headliner and then sand off all the old nasty foam still stuck to the board, use just hand sandpaper, everything clean now roll new headliner out over ur board so u know how it fits, glue stuff dries fast so it's important u work quick, I just left it laid out and rolled the front back sprayed the he'll outof the board and back of liner then laid it back over the board used a clean paint roller to press it all down and then did back, after the trim cut ur holes in it let it set awhile and replace in reverse order u took out, damn lot of writing but it didn't take long, hope this helped man
