    Usually its just the stereo guys that buy Dynamat, but everyone else should think about using some. My truck feels like a Lexus now since I lined most of my floor with some. Huge difference.
    You don't have to be psycho like me and use a ton...even a moderate amount would help. Here are some pics.

    The only thing that sucks is I can't put any on the passenger side yet because that metal is going to be cut out and replaced with new parts in a couple months.

    Looks sweet, but wasn't that kind of expensive? I mean I got a sheet that was like i think 3ftx3ft and it was like $30.

    How does Dynamat hold up to the heat. I know the floor gets cookin around the tranny area. Looks good though!

    I used to work at Best Buy so I got a huge discount on the stuff. I used Original dynamat in the back floor and Extreme Dynamat on everything else. The Extreme is about 4 times more effective and easier to apply. 4 square feet of the Original is $25 and 4 feet of the Extreme is $35. I paid $7 for the Original and $11 for the Extreme. I used about 6 rolls of the Extreme and 4 or 5 of the Original.

    The Original series Dynamat is OK with heat and would be fine on your floorboards. But the Extreme Dynamat would be better. Its rated alot higher for heat and is even approved to use on the bottom side of your hood! The Extreme series is awesome for a lot of reasons.

    how does the stuff feel to the touch? it it hard and seemingly thick, or a cussion like softness? and also, does it have great sound blockage? i know that stuff would be good to put in a truck... and it doesnt seem to cost an arm and a leg like most good stuff does. plus it looks good, and would probably work better under some carpeting. L8!

    why do you only use your 4wd for parking lot maneunvers?

    The Original dynamat is just kind of like a rubber mat with adhesive on one side. Kind of like a flexable asphault almost...as weird as that must sound.
    The Extreme dynamat is more gooey, which explains the thicker aluminum foil type backing. They both can be contoured around any shape imaginable. The Extreme has excellent sound blockage and deadening. My truck has dropped so my dB's of road noise its not even funny. All I hear now are Flowmasters and Super Swampers.

    Look for the stuff on Ebay before you shell out the big bucks at a stereo shop...it usually goes for pretty cheap on there. Just make sure its the real deal, because a lot of the product on Ebay is imitation Dynamat.

    How do you think that stuff would do with muddy water all over it? Think it would ruin the stuff or not?
