    just an fyi for anyone else interested in doing this, obviously mine is a single cab, i probably used about 70 sq.ft. covered the roof twice, the floor the backwall, and will do the doors later but wont be but another maybe 10 sq.ft.

    well i could definitely already tell a difference but as you found out from my other post, with no muffler its loud again on the inside
    once i get that fixed i will respond with more results
    but before the muffler fell off it was well worth it

    FWIW, @aloxdaddy99, it's the same material that I used. The FatMat Rattle Trap Xtreme is 80mil .. i.e. more dense than other Rattle Trap Products. I got mine from Amazon and it was 90 bucks for 50sq ft plus $16.99 S&H ... and it comes with a roller (which is crappy) and a blade which is ok. It appears to have gone up to 92.99 clams per 50sq. ft, now ( meaning you'll total out at 109.98 per roll you order.

    To do my entire cab (floor, rear wall, roof, dual layers on the doors [outer skin and inner skin], and multiple layers in the center console) I consumed 4 rolls of the stuff. I recently ordered a 5th roll as I want to have some on hand when I change out my speakers and I was completely out.

    Maybe @reggiecab2000 found a cheaper price? Do tell!

    @SurrealOne I couldn't remember what you had used. Nak and I were talking about it the other night. I may start to buy a roll here and a roll there until I get enough

    I'm not too far from doing this too. Just on the floor though as thats where most of my noise is from.

    Quickest and easiest place for ME to get it from is AutoZone plus next time I go and use my card thing I get 40$ off

    If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.
