Okay, I get a lot of wind and road noise in my truck, and with the new single shot injectors and open intake I'm getting a lot of engine compartment noise as well. I'd like to do some cheap tricks to help quiet things down inside if possible. I don't have any compaints about the turbo singing though :D

I've got a bunch of latex tubing to put in all the door seals, I hear that makes a pretty good difference in road noise. But what else can I do? Any tips or pointers?

Someone mentioned some type of sound deadening panels that came on Excursions? Anyone know about these?

There is a few peices that are on the firewall and a huge one that goes under the truck from the firewamm pinchweld down just passed the trans. Also try painting the windsheild wiper trough.

If you just want to kill the sound, you need to go easy on the peal and seal type deadener (black sticky stuff with aluminum backer) because that is ideally for vibrations and go heavy on the closed cell foam type sound deadeners. I would still use some of the Dynamat type product but no reason to cover the complete inside of the truck. I really like the Second Skin products. They have some nice products that are specific for certain areas of your vehicle. You could always just go with some basic closed cell foam from Ebay. There is an Ebay seller called foamforyou that has some good pricing. You could go with something like this, 1/4in foam or this, 1/8in foam. You will need something like a 3M super 77 adhesive spray to apply it.

Road, engine & exhaust noise arn't an issue with me, it's the rattles that drive me nuts! Seems like I fix one & another one pops up!

I'm thinking the door seal mods, and maybe something along the inside of the firewall.

I don't really notice how loud my truck is inside until I ride in my dads basically stock powerstroke.

You don't notice the fender unless your riding passenger in it. Don't even notice the rear springs unless you driving behind it. It's all of the rattles inside the cab!

I have used both Second skin and Rammat products. Second Skin is the easier product to work with by far esp in areas like inside door panels. It was a big job but I do like the end results.

I have used both as well and the Second Skin is easier to work with. I actually sold what I had left of the Rammat product and bought Second Skin for the rest of the truck. The back half is covered in Rammat. The Second Skin is more expensive but worth the price difference for me.

I pretty much agree with you. I think Rammat is ok for areas like the floor and back cab wall, etc, but even there it has a tendancy to be more messy and gets black stuff on your pants.

Better than brown stuff in your pants.

That was my main reason for selling the Rammat and buying Second Skin. I used two boxes of rubber gloves, ruined two rollers and two utility knives on 3/4's of a roll. I didn't really get any on my clothes or truck but it is very messy. I like the Second Skin product because it comes in more managable pcs and they don't seem to be as messy. The black tar like substance on the Rammat seems to get on everything and sticks instantly. That is one good thing about it though, it will not come off. I personally do not mind paying more for a what I think is a better product that is easier to work with.
