Hard Top Headliner

Has anyone had any luck with an aftermarket headliner with their TJ hard top? My main objective is sound. Not so much in reducing the road noise but helping with the acoustics of the stereo. Also, would it help with insulation in the winter time? This would only be for winter use, the soft top goes on in the summer.

Inexpensive automotive carpet, avail at auto parts stores, ebay, Walmart etc, and 3m Trim adhesive. (be sure to use the right adhesive or it lets go in the heat of summer.)
Or foam backed headliner fabric, etc. example: http://www.yourautotrim.com/auheclvifa.html
Easy to do yourself.

I did my own headliner. I got a bunch of foil backed insulation and cut it down to size. After washing the inside of the top I adered it with spray adhesive. I then got automotive carpet and cut it down to size and adhered it as well with the same adhesive.

Turned out pretty good, and was fairly inexpensive.

Make sure that you don't use anything that's too flammable, including the adhesive. You don't want a lot of extra fuel up there around your head.

If your jeep is on fire, the last thing you need to worry about it whether the headliner will burn....
