As long as it's in good shape, sure. Trying to get it to line up just right might suck though. Might as well replace it, fabric is cheap. I did one in black denim a while back, cost me $30 or so and I had a bunch leftover.

New sounds like the way to go. Thanks for the input. This is my sons first vehicle . The headliner has a couple hundred tacs holding it up. Looks like a disco ball.

Yeah, we had a Jimmy Blazer when I was a kid with the liner tacked up like that. It sucked, they'd always fall out and you'd always end up sitting on one.

Might check with a local upholstery shop, most will redo XJ liners for around $100 because they're so simple to remove.

I know this is an older thread, but I plan on doing the headliner in my WJ this summer - I don't like the two tone thing, and Pep Boys has a roll of black carbon fiber patterned headliner material for $65. I've done it before (grey camo material in my 240SX hatch years ago) but I didn't know how to do the visors. Great writeup!

Looks real good. I might just tackle this one a bit down the line. My headliner is actually holding up great, but I do have quite a few cigerette holes from a previous owner. (Damn smokers. lol.)
