What's up everyone? I am hoping to add a liner to my TC XLT. My father in law bolted down a piece of plywood to give the van an even surface. What suggestions do you all have for me? I would like to use something other than the premade liners that big companies sell for ~$100-$200. 

 

Thank you all in advance!

Carpet.  I just laid down a very cheap, thin carpet in the back of mine, and it deadened road noises by at least 50%.  I think the main reason for the reduction in noise ... the carpet absorbs the echo effect.

 

If you've got a carpet store ... or a building supply surplus store near you ... remnants can be very inexpensive.

I just ordered a 4x10 roll of this plyometric rubber for $120 delivered.  I realize that's a lot more expensive than you were probably looking for, but I wanted something that was waterproof and provided some cushion.  I have a lwb wagon and I'm going to cut it to fit in two pieces - one for when both back rows of seats are down, and one for when just the third row is down.

How the noise and heat when using rubber mats?

I just went to the overstock store - Ollies Discount - and bought sixteen commercial two-by-two rubber backed carpet squares. They fit perfectly on the 4ft by 6ft floor of the TC with no cutting and I can just flip them from carpet to rubber when I want to carry something messy. I left the vinyl liner that came in the van in place. If one square get too soiled or even ruined by oil, liquids etc. I just throw it away and replace it; that's why I bought so many of them. They also provide great insulation for the floor in the winter time..

Yes it does help.  There is nothing like the thick rubber backing of the carpet laying directly on the floor and lower sidewalls to cover any pin holes  to the outside and items inside the van that would rattle/vibrate against the bare metal.
