In Cab Noise!!!

alright.. well idk if im the only one but between the mud grapplers and the turbo, the inside of my cab is SOOOO LOUD!!! i hate it.. im getting new tires soon and im getting the toyo open country so that will be a little better but i want the cab to be quieter...
i hate to have to let off the gas to talk to my passenger because all ii hear is turbo.. idk if this bothers anyone else but it does me..

soo what im getting to is what can i do to make my trips a little quieter!? ive been looking into the sound deadening mats but there pretty expensive.. is there any good alternative sound deadening mats anyone knows of that are good??

has anyone done something like rubberized spray coating or something like that on the fire wall and the bottom of your trucks??

let me know what you guys have tried or have seen out there

Switch to some tires that aren't mud terrain and steam roller sized, and I'm sure the noise will decrease a ton. Adding a muffler and not having a huge tip on the exhaust will also quiet it down some.

Pull the carpet and spay undercoating on the floor, and put some insulation down, then put the carpet back in. The insulation is only like $40 bucks for a roll and it should only take 2-3 rolls max.
