Want to make truck quiet InCab....

So im getting a little tired of the noise in cab from engine and exhaust. I have my exhaust dumped mid cab strait to the ground, this prolly doesnt help.

So im thinking of maybe extending the exhaust out to the rear. Or just putting one of the BTM walker brand mufflers on.

Also the tymer intake is also really loud is there any way to make that more quiet cause i dont want to change that?

I guess i just want to be able to hold a conversation with someone without talking so loud also the radio is something id like to now hear clearly haha.

Does anyone have any other tips to try out?

Thanks..

A full exhaust with a muffler will help. There's also this stuff that's like dynamat but is a lot cheaper. I can't remember what the name of it is but some of the stereo guys on the forum have used it before so maybe they'll chime in.

That tar paper like stuff works good. I think it is made by a company called GRACE. It is like a thin layer or buytle. I am putting it inside my project truck because it is cheap. And I have about 30 rolls.

Its not too heavy but seems like dynomat material to me.

How do you feel the tar paper will do in the summer ive heard it can melt down and smell the cab up?
The dynamat is expensive!!

300 bucks and you can sound deaden almost the entire cab.

Raamaudio.com is where I got mine from. Layer of BXT (asphalt sticky stuff) and then a layer of ensolite over the top. We did the entire floor boards, the exterior door skin, interior door skin, back wall, and I did under the cowl (above the turbo). It quieted down the cab immensely... The stereo is 10x better then what it was before.

we pretty much gutted the entire cab, minus the headliner and the dash board. All the pillars also were covered as well.

We actually stuck some of that asphalt based stuff for your roof on one truck as an experiement. IT worked great, Even when were travelling across Nevada in 100+ degree temps did I ever smell anything...

The raamaudio stuff is awesome. We installed that since the price was great and wasn't much more then the stuff you buy at home depot. We have done (3) trucks so far and they all turned out fantastic.

Run your exhaust out the back and throw a Wicked Wheel in the turbo. Quieted the howling down but gave it more whistle.

what do you mean by interior vs exterior door skin?

For the OP...
I had my exhaust dumping at the end of my cab where it used to go up for stacks and it was very loud and annoying in the cab. I just purchased 4" exhaust kit with mbrp muffler to finish it off to the rear exit. Its now much nicer in the cab.

There is a layer of sheet metal for the outer door skin and one for the inner door skin (where the door panel connects.)
