    I would do that, but I don't necessarily want a permanent carpet. Here is what I was thinking....

    Remove the rest of the dash and put sound deadening material there, do the same for the doors, and behind the rear panels in the back as well. Then I was thinking of making a "carpet" or something similar with the sound deadening material to lay in the back of the rig that was easily removable. Same thing for the passenger floor space in the rear. What are your guys' thoughts on that? I think it should help a lot for the everyday driving and really make things quieter. I am new to this aspect of building a rig, so any input would be awesome.

    One thing that is important on the doors and behind the rear panels is that none of the materials can hold/trap water. At least keep it to a minimum b/c of what it will be used for.

    Can someone help pick out some materials for the job and provide any input/suggestions? I don't want to spend thousands on materials, but don't mind spending a decent little bit of cash on it.

    have you tried any of the offroad forums? i would find it hard to believe that you are the first attempting this with a off-road rig-- there has to be more then a couple people that have also gone through this..

    Typically they seem to be more mechanically oriented than this type of a project. You know, engines, gears, tires, and lifts. ha ha.

    do you get any offroading magazines?

    my brother just got one-- i can't remember which one, and didn't have time to read it(one of the featured rigs i remember is a yellow jeep with unimog axles) but there was a article in there about sound deadening that might apply..

    ok, it was pages 30+31 of petersens 4wheel and offroad, the october 2011 issue(note to editor--IT'S ONLY AUGUST!!).. the author of the article was Jason Gonderman

    though, reading through it, they really only talk about application of the product(page 30, page 31 is just pics), and not really on how to deal with the harsh conditions that offroad vehicles are put through, and how that could affect sound deadening..

    the end of the article is left as a hook to go to their website(4wheeloffroad.com) to read of the sound reduction that they had after the install, though, searching their site(unless it is somewhere on their forum), i am not seeing any continuations of the paper article...
