Simple installation for anyone.
I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the JeepTops USA Headliner Kit, fitting all 2007 and up JKs. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of this kit, which is a very simple one out of three wrenches because this does install with some 3M adhesive and Velcro. A hardtop headliner serves a couple of different purposes. For some reason, Jeep decided to leave the interior of your hardtop white, which doesn't always look the best, so adding a nice set of black headliners like this will really finish off the look of the interior. But even more than just aesthetics, a headliner kit like this can be very functional. It'll really serve two main purposes. One is to be insulating, so if it's nice and hot outside, you'll be able to have the AC going in your Jeep and keep it nice and cool for you and your passengers, or vice versa, in the wintertime, you'll be nice and warm. And this will also insulate against road noise. Especially if you have some big, knobby mud tires on your Jeep, you'll know how much noise you can get through the relatively thin hardtop, so adding a headliner kit like this will cut down on noise, making it much easier for you to have a conversation while in the cab of your Jeep. This setup in particular is incredibly well-built, as we're used to seeing from JeepTops USA, without being overpriced, and it'll serve both the form and the function very well.There are a few different versions of this headliner kit that you can get. One is going to be for those of you with the two-door and one for those of you with a four-door. And Jeep did change the design of the hardtop a little bit from 2010 to 2011, so there are two different year ranges as well. So just make sure you pick the right one for your Jeep and this will install and fit really well. These are made of a four-layer construction that have a poly-cotton exterior on the side that you actually see when you're sitting in the Jeep, which is very similar to an OEM headliner material that you would see in most cars, so it does give you a really finished look. As I mentioned before, JeepTops USA is known for making really, really high-quality parts, and this is no different. From the piping around the outside, to the stitching, to the way that it actually attaches to the Jeep, this is a product that's going to hold up very well, it's going to do exactly what it's designed to do, and it's going to install very easily.As far as installation goes, this is going to very easily stick to the inside of your top with adhesive, and it also has Velcro strips so you can very easily remove and reinstall them if you need to clean them off. Something that makes this setup a little bit unique from some of the others on the market is that the section directly over the driver has some elastic pockets and even a zipper pocket, so you have a little bit of additional storage built right into your headliner kit. As I mentioned before, this is a very simple one out of three wrench installation. In fact, you're not even going to need any tools to get this done. All you'll do is clean off the area underneath your hardtop where these are actually going to stick, peel off the backing on the adhesive, and push them in place. With some headliner kits, you do have to remove your hardtop, flip it upside down in order to install the headliner kit. This is not one of them. This is a very easy installation that you can do with the hardtop installed on the Jeep. You don't even have to loosen up any of the hardware, which makes this very, very simple. And you will wanna install these when the temperatures are moderate. You wanna give the adhesive a good chance to set up and bond so that these will stay in place where you put them. The whole installation shouldn't take you more than a half hour, and again, no tools needed.This headliner kit is priced very fairly, in my opinion. As I've said before, JeepTops USA makes some of the highest quality soft products for your Jeep, and some of them are lot more expensive than their competitors, just because of the quality. With this headliner kit, I feel like you get all the quality of a JeepTops USA product, but you're paying the same price that you would pay for some of the other versions on the website that, in my opinion, aren't quite as well-made. So I think this is a great buy.So whether you're looking to just finish off the look of the inside of your Jeep or you're looking for the installation from both noise and temperature, this kit is going to provide all of that in a really high-quality product that's fairly priced. So that's my review of the JeepTops USA Headliner Kit, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Nice so far but missing zipper pouch
Easy install and quieter than expected. One disappointment is there is no longer a zipper pocket on the driver side panel. I wrote the company and they said due to customers overloading the zipper pouch they stopped this option a year ago. Please update the advertising photos and descriptions as such.Helpful (4)

JTOPS Black Headliner for '16 JKU

Great install! Just make sure to follow the prep instructions. Over prep! My only concern is the fabric drooped a bit as one review mentioned. No much but enough that I will have my logo embroidered into them to tighten them up for a custom look. Still give It a 5star!Helpful (2)

Jtops Hard Top Headliner
Purchased the JTOPS hard top headliner in the color of red as shown above. To install was rather simple for the front two panels of the hard top and he back part of the hard top,However after installing all panels. I quicly found out that the velcro provided is not really strong enough to hold the panels in place like they should. So I made a trip to Wally World purchased 1 inch wide heavy duty velcro ( rated to hold 10 pounds) and replace the factory provided velcro got a much better fit and finish. I place a digital thermometer in the jeep prior to installing the headliner. The outside temperature was 92 here in South Florida inside prior to the install the jeep temp was at 101. After the install I cooled the interior down with the a/c shut it off let it sit in the sun for 2 hours. The outside temp was still 92. The inside of the jeep was now at 96 big improvement.The headliner also cut down on the highway noise by several decibels. I like the cargo are that comes on the driver side panel great place for my wallet and phone.Helpful (4)

So Far so Good
I am liking them to this point, but have not installed all the way in the rear seat and rear as I am waiting for it to warm up and to be able to raise the top a little to get under the speakers.Helpful (5)

Very nice headliners
These installed easily and look great. I watched a lot of videos before buying about if they actually help regulate interior temps and after having them in the summer and winter I believe they help with both.Helpful (6)

Great quality as expected from JTopsUSA. Required the removal of the top for proper installation.Helpful (12)
Do Headliners like these hurt the acoustics of the jeep? I have the alpine system in mine, I dont want my speakers volume or the sub noise to be absorbed by these and sound weak. Thanks!
Thank you for your question! This should keep the sound in and not dampen it. This is more for climate insulation, appearance, and to dampen loud noises from outside the Jeep like noisy tires.
I live in upper Western New York where the climate can cause a lot of unwanted moisture on surfaces. How well will the mounting tape hold up in colder climates with condensation in mind? Thanks.
If properly installed in temperate and dry conditions, you should have nothing to worry about!
I also like to use the Alien Sunshades on my jeep and usually just leave them on with the hardtop on. Will the headliners still fit ok if I leave the sunshade on?
These may interfere with fitment of sunshades if left installed along with the hard top.
I have an 08 JK Sierra Unlimited, would this item fit my JK?
If your JKU is a hardtop, this item will fit your Jeep.
I have a 2007 Rubicon four door and it says it will not fit my Jeep wouldn't this fit on a 2007 Rubicon hardtop 4 door
The item you would want for your 4door Jeep (both Rubicon and other) is item J104248-A.
Most issues with the headliners coming loose or detached were likely installation errors. Following the installation instructions will eliminate many issues that can result in the headliner coming loose.
The J Tops USA Headliner will work with a 2018 JL Sahara with the factory hardtop installed.
At this time, J Tops USA only produces this 4 piece headliner kit, and is not planning on rear window sections, however they may decide to design and produce these at a later date.
