Help with headliner in an xj

I have a 99 xj and the headliner is starting to sag above the driver. Anyone with experience willing to help redo it? I want it to look factory but really don't want to pay 175 to a shop.

I just redid mine, first time doing one, and with all the materials I have about $90 in it plus a lot of hours of labor. Mine came out ok but around the built in speaker pods there are some wrinkles where the material didnt want to stretch. I'm hoping mine lasts otherwise I'm gonna drop the $175 to have it done professionally. Its been a month and a half and so far so good.

Wow, I didn't realize to get a factory result with the same sound deadening it would cost so much.

The material is roughly $10+/yard and you need 3 and that doesnt include shipping and the adhesive is $20/ can and you really should use 2-3 for the headliner. I used 2 but the more adhesive the better. Like I said around the speaker pods there are a few wrinkles but the color I chose hides them real well since it has a pattern.

If you're really picky about it looking factory then I suggest you have someone who really knows what they are doing do it for you. That way if there is an issue then you have someone to fix it. If mine starts coming down soon I have nobody to blame but myself and will basically be out the $$ I spent to do it this last time

^I love it. If I was still living in Florida, I'd go this direction. But is that sag in the back wagon area?
