    Dynamat

    Post by MtnClimber on Sat Jan 26, 2013 8:20 pm

    So the cab of the Comanche is pretty loud. I'd like to quiet it down and was thinking of different idea's. I saw a Yota that ran it and was thinking 'bout using this on the back of the cab, maybe the roof too.
    Basically wondering what others have used, pro's/con's.
    I also want to sound deaden the floor too.
    Thanks in advance!

    I've used Dynamat with good results. Get the thicker stuff for the flatter areas. Then use the thin stuff for curved areas, it'll be alot easier to work with. Theres alot of cheaper knock offs on ebay that would save you some money, maybe worth a try. It also insulates quite well.

    Not sure if you want to do this to this rig but wouldn't undercoating or bed line work?

    That would hafta have some sound deadening qualities to it. Whatever I use will be covered up with either a rubber floor or carpeting. I'll hafta check what the quietness of bedliner would have Wink

    Bed liner has very little sound dampening in my experience. I have looked in to Lizard Skin, because it is made as a spray on sound deadener. I might spray that in this summer then reapply the Raptorliner on top.

    When I built the storage compartment for the extended cab of my truck, I pulled the carpet up and put down some kind of roofing material, the name escapes me, that I got from Home Depot.

    It was some kind of vinyl with a really sticky adhesive backing. Prior to putting it in, the road noise coming from the back of the truck was terrible. It seems to work pretty well.

    Dampened the noise well enough. If you have the extra cash, I would just get the Dynamat.

    Dynamat works great, I used it all the time in my car stereo teen years. But it is very expensive.

    I have heard good things about Al's floor liner, and heat and noise reducer. I pulled the carpet on my JK and plan to use this soon to treat the floor.
