Please read before Installing:

This kit is designed to fit Jeep Wranglers equipped with factory hardtops. One person can install the front panels over the driver and passenger seats (JK Models). However, it is recommended that a minimum of 2 people install the panels on the back part of the hardtop, as they are large (JK & TJ Models). Lay the parts in place with the paper release liner left in place to note its position and where it will be installed. Once the adhesive contacts a clean surface, it is extremely difficult to remove the adhesive. Be sure the part is in the position desired before adhering it!

Installation Instructions

1.) Remove the hardtop from vehicle and place on the floor in an inverted position as shown in figure 1 below. – Placing the hardtop on a blanket is recommended to protect it from scratches.

2.) Once the hardtop is removed, clean the inside surface of the hardtop with Isopropyl alcohol to ensure a good adhesive bond. Note: The adhesive will not stick properly to a dirty surface.

3.) Install the foam “filler strips” in the molded ribs to ensure a smooth installation of the headliner. Without the “filler strips”, the headliner will conform to the ridges in the top leaving an uneven appearance. Before peeling the release liner on the strips, fit them into the ribs to properly locate them. Trim if necessary.


4.) Remove the paper release liner from the back of the part about to be installed. Once the liner is removed, center one side as shown in Figure 3.


5.) Once the starting edge is adhered, lay down the rest of the part by applying gentle pressure with your hands as shown in Figure 4.


6.) Once the parts have been installed, apply pressure with a roller as shown in Figure 5 below. Note – Roll the part on in two directions (upwards / downwards and left /right) Note: Flooring roller shown, can use Boom Mat Installation Roller Part # 050218 or press in place by hand.


7.) Once all parts are installed, allow parts to sit in the top inverted for 25 minutes. (See Figures 6 and 7). This will allow the adhesive to set properly. Once the parts have set, you are ready to install the top back on your Jeep.
