Mine started 2 years ago on my 97, didn't progress much at most 2" along the edge of windsheild.

3M has a spray glue for headliners, I didn't bother to try it...

at this point thats the least of my problems with the truck so...

need bumpers, tires, exhaust, radiator etc... so I can get another 200k out of it! needs to hit 500K before I can retire it!

Headliner I can do without! <grin>

on my old Dodge diplomat same thing but dropped everywhere, I ended up using a can of GREAT STUFF Foam, and smashing the headliner up pressing it into it, worked fine but sure was lumpy after the foam expanded and cured! Never dropped again though!
