And he didn't mention the roof in that thread. I guess I'll go for 120 or 160 sq. ft. of it and see where that gets me. Just what I was looking for, thanks Zach!

i personally wouldnt use peel-n-seal. it does work similarly to dynamat, but in hot weather it can give off a tar-like roofing smell, and can smear/slide/move.

there are cheaper alternatives, as other members have stated, to dynamat that are still appropriate for in-vehicle use. i would not classify peel-n-seal as one of them.

i used about 50sqft of dynamat extreme in my extended cab; 1 coat on the outer panel of each door, and 1 coat on the entire floor running up to the firewall.

with 100sqft, you should be able to do a single coat on the roof, floor, back wall, and the outside AND inside of each door.

lumadar used fatmat or some other dynamat alternative in his old ranger and layered it in some places, but i'm not sure how much he used.

imo, layering dynamat offers basically no added sound-deadening benefit, and is kind of a waste of money and time. dynamat quiets your ride by reducing/eliminating panel flex and vibrations that carry through the sheetmetal as well as absorbing some resonant sound. if you REALLY want the interior of your car to be quiet, then use dynamat extreme ALONG WITH tacmat/dynapad/extremeliner/etc.

i have yet to do my doors, but everything else is done....i have a full layer everywhere, and some spots have 2 layers. it has for sure made a difference. IMO fatmat is just as good as dynamat, but much cheaper, thats the only reason i would call it an alternative. the day after i did my roof, it was over 90 outside, and a few pieces came off....i figured i just didnt clean it good enough....so a few hours ago, i got done re-applying it and it seems better than ever.....some of the roof got two layers

it did stink a bit at first, but it went away in a day or two. now my headliner is back in place holding any possible drooping fatmat

So with you 150 sq ft you covered both doors (inside and outside skin) the floor, the back wall, and the roof, with enough left over to do 2 layers in some spots?

Enough to do the outside skin and inside door panel on both sides you think? This stuff ain't cheap so I don't want to buy more than I need. I talked to some guys at an install shop today and they said 2 dynamat bulk packs would cover the interior (72 sq ft.) and I was a little skeptical... I may go for like 120 sq ft and see what that does for me.

I would like to install DynaPad on the floor of my extended cab. I have a rubber floor, not carpet. My research indicates that DynaPad does not have an adhesive backing. Do you guys think that 3M Super77 will work good for sticking this stuff down? I have also read that it is not necessary to glue this stuff down on the floor, but I think I would prefer to glue it anyway.



I would also like to know, if I use DynaPad for the floor, how much more DynaMat would I need to do the rest (ceiling, back panel, inner and outer door panel)? I've been checking prices @ Amazon, there's lots of choices for sizes & number of pieces, I'm a little lost on which is the best choice.

I used Raamat and Ensolite, so far only have 37.5sq-ft of BXT II and 28 sq-ft of ensolite in the cab--made a tremendous difference in speaker sound quality and road noise.

What I had was enough to do the doors, covered the door panel in Ensolite: front floorboards w/BXT and ensolite: rear of the cab w/both: rear floor of cab w/BXT II, and the area behind the rear speakers and jump seats.

The mats only dampen resonance, to truly make the cab quiet a second product is needed. Whether it be Ensolite (closed cell foam) or MLV (Mass Loaded Vinyl). The small amount I installed in my truck earlier this year made a lot of difference for only $150, next year I'm going to add a bit more.

Have a look at this thread...
https://www.ranger-forums.com/audio-...adener-131400/

In the 6th post I have all the dimensions for the truck and how many sq ft are needed for every part and total to do the entire cab. Thread is also a good discussion on different products available and what people have done.

I second that. I went with RAAMat BXT II ordered 2 boxes of the thirty seven.5sqft. I simply did my doors and back panel and would have lots left over for the ground.
