Heat and sound barriers

When you all carpet your trucks, do you install heat and/or sound barriers first? Does It Make A Big difference?

Re: Heat and sound barriers

It makes enough of a difference that I would put some down. It doesn't need to be a major name brand either, the cheaper stuff works well, and it comes in different sizes and thickness too.

Everything except the roof got some peel n stick. The rear cabwall got an extra layer of heavier deadener from the window down. Firewall also got a heat barrier layer.

Re: Heat and sound barriers

Finally getting around to doing this. What's a good company to get heat barrier and insulation from? I'm going to order my carpet from Stock Interiors. Would that be a good place to get the hear/insulation too? Thanks!

Re: Heat and sound barriers

I did this when I redid my interior. I put the Peel & Stick on the floor, back wall and on the ceiling, before putting the headliner back in. This is what I did:
On the floor, I had quite a bit of FatMat left over from a previous job. It wasn’t enough, so I got some Peel & Stick from Lowes. It is pretty much the same stuff as the FatMat, just cheaper.
Then put the original Tar Mat, from the factory back down. Then put a layer of jute backed foil down. I got this from Home Depot online. Use foil tape to adhere the edges to the floor, and on the seams.

Then the new carpet was put down. It also had jute backing. The back wall, I put the cardboard tool tray in and put Amp/speaker carpet on it. I believe it has made the cab a lot more quiet. When I first got the truck, the cab was so noisy, you had to talk pretty loud to be heard. Plus the floor doesn’t get hot around your feet, like it did at first.

Thanks! And I forgot this part too, I also got this stuff from Home Depot. I stuffed it up in the corners, behind the speakers. I took it up as far as I could get my arm. I also made a few small updates to the post above.
