I think it probably wouldnt look good if you did it yourself.


I know theres a company that actually makes a camo headliner but I have no clue who it is.

Upholstery is how its spelled. If you take your time you can make anything look good. Just take it out of the truck and use spray adhesive to keep it tight. Then just staple it around the edges.

im in the middle of doing it in my truck now, so i guess there will be two trucks in jersey with a camo headliner. lol

oh and to take it down, take the visors down, dome light, grab handles, and all the trim that touch the headliner, and wiggle it out the door, haha, i have a supercab and i had to be careful to get it out of the door without ruining it lol

Take your time and do it right. Pull the headliner and the old material. Use tons of glue when you apply the camo fabric.

Did you end up taking off the stock material or just going over it with the Camo Material ?

Sweeeeeeeeeeeet!

That looks so freakin cool, i want that. Max-4 is the Coolest pattern out there, The majority of my hunting clothes are in that pattern. What type of glue did you use.
