Different pavement different road noise...what insulation to use/

Recommended Posts

2016 TC XLT. cargo, nice and quiet on fresh or dark pavement,older gray pavement gets noisy..no complaints but while i'm in my panels and wheel wells adding power ports, shore power and other wiring etc i would like to add insulation...something non adhesive and easy to pack in such as polyfill or kraft type insulation...kind off a 50/50 sound deadening thermal application would be fine...suggestions..advice:drool:

Don't know how much polyfill or Kraft type insulation would help with deadening sound  -  The industry standard for automotive applications for many years has been Dynamat

I get it.  You don't want to stick it on.  Otherwise, Beta Don\s suggestion would have been great.  Dynamat is an excellent product.

Old post I know, but ...

 

Was thinking of using horse stall mats in the rear to deaden noise in my 2011 TC Cargo. Heavy stuff, so it should also stay in place by itself. Plans here for an overnight camping setup, and I imagine I could even bolt the bed and such into the mats using fender washers for reinforcement - they're 5/8" thick and quite sturdy. That would eliminate the need for a plywood deck, and carpeting would be optional as it's a great insulator.

 

4x6 foot sections around $30 at the local farm and fleet.

Troubleshooting squeaks on my 2011 (just purchased). Did you try the stall mats?
