diy sound proofing cab

I was just wondering if anyone has tried using something like house carpet pad or anything similar under the factory carpet and behind the dash to help make the cab quieter I have plenty of spare time and can the pad for free so I was just wondering if it could work?

I don't see why it wouldn't work, but have you seen what the pad looks like under old carpet? I honestly wouldn't want any of that gunk buildup in my truck, especially driving down dirt roads and what comes off your feet.

Check out some of the sound proofing materials and compare. I think lizard skin is one of the higher liked ones right now.

I had some window wrapping tape left from the project and after chatting with my buddy who own an audio shop, I was told that my tape should work just fine. I came across 12"x66' rolls sold at local Dunn Lumber @ $50 per roll. One roll was enough to do the floor, rear doors, and back of the cab. After that I came across some carpet pad used on residential floor installation that I thought would work just as well with some spay adhesive, rear doors are no longer rattle as much and it is much quieter, since I have straight 4" pipe, I have notice a huge difference.
This just my 2c

Next month I will be covering sealing, and front doors along with new door seals, I expect big difference as before.

Home depot duct insulation with sticky on one side and foil on the other side. It cheap and works good.

If you are going to pull the carpet use a product designed for the job, the results will be worth it.
