2016 Black Bear Edition and Headliner Question

New guy here, traded off my 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited to get this.
Couldn't be more happier


My question is about insulated headliners.
From the pictures that I have seen, I like the looks of the OEM Mopar headliner kits.
Can anyone comment on how well the Mopar kits are?

I can't speak for headliners but are you looking for it to keep it warmer or for noise cancelling. If for warmth try it for the winter I work in northern British Columbia in Canada live in northern Alberta and my jeep has a hardtop with no liners but it is still warm in the winter

Considering the costs, the inside hardtop insulation can make a substantial difference in internal radiated heat from the sun and --

Will cut down road sounds enough for calm quiet conversations in traffic, not a lotta difference in heat when it's cold outside, because of the jeeps incredible heaters, but

California "HotHeads"/MOPAR JK HARDTOP insulation and they're easy install and look like stock installation--

Can'tbeatem

I use my A/C in the desert--SELDOM-

Good luck

If you factory order headliners do they come factory pre-installed or is a 20 year old at the dealership installing them when they get the jeep?

Does it really matter, if you consider that there could be a 20 year old at the factory installing them? More than likely, they are installed at the dealer though since it is also available to purchase from the parts counter and install yourself.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.

Anyone know how the mopar compare to the hothead? You can get pretty good deals on the mopar version, curious if they are as good as the hotheads?

I don't have issues with the heat in the jeep except in the summer when it has been sitting in the sun all day then it seems like the ac takes forever to cool things down because the top radiates so much heat.

We have hot weather and cold weather as you do in WV. I have never given any consideration to headliners for those reasons.
Sitting still in a down pour once did make it cross my mind for sound deadening reasons but as soon as you hit 5 mph the sound was gone so its about at the bottom of my " I want " list .

I have the Mopar and the adhesive did not hold on the rear piece. I have had the hotheads on my 2010 and never had a problem with them. I have them due to the heat in the Phoenix area and they do make a difference.

Chances are much better the 20 year old at the factory will do better job then a dealership oil change tech.
