Get rid of the stacks if there still on there, run exhaust back out the rear.

When I was running stacks the sound annoyed the hell out of me when I was with my girl or on the phone. It absolutely sucked. Took the stacks off, problem mostly solved.

Put sound barrier insice as far up the firewall as possible and lose the stacks as mentioned before. You could also put an HPX line on the HPO system and upgrade to a higher flowing HPOP. Using a muffler will quiet it down as well.

Stack is gone I took it out awhile back. The main sound is the swampers on the road but im goin with a less aggresive tire. Probably from pro-comp or something.Im repainting the entire truck so what about rhino lining inside the cab and then putting down that sound barrier stuff down as well ? Would the rhino lining even make a difference ?

anti-rattle kit or shove some surgical tubing through the seals around your doors along with everything else.

Helped 100% to get the shift boot bolted down correctly haha.
+1; astonishing how much noise got thru a little slit that opened when shifter was moved to the rear (2,4,R).

Also look for holes in the firewall where aftermarket stuff (trailer brake control wires, etc) is passed thru. I got lazy/impatient and just sealed one of those up with Great Stuff the other day. Way quieter and WAY less diesel-stinky in the cab now.

After you lose the swampers, do the door seal mod, and sound proof the trans tunnel. That will be a huge improvement. Cover the galvanized panel of the trans tunnel as completely as you can that cut a majority of the road noise my 95 had out.

Doing the dynamat type stuff will help but it is not a quick task. I spent a few days on that project.

Same here, And I'm still looking for less sound with my new engine coming, Going to try the beer coozie around the steering shaft, Also plug up those holes with "trailer wiring" etc,

But most of all going to spray my V/C's with some high heat bed liner stuff, supposed to make quite a difference.

Where did you all get the plastic tubing to put in the door's weather stripping? I want to do the mod on my next days off but not sure where to get the tubing at. Also whats the beer coozie trick around the steering shaft?
