I removed the OEM padding by hand...and used a plastic putty knife in areas where it still had good to fair adhesion.

I just completely took the OEM padding off, used it as a "template", and stored it in my garage after the installation. The Dynamat does the same function as the OEM padding, plus now its more securely attached to the door. The wind noise, and any wind that did blow into the truck cab via the door handle and the top of the inner door previously is either gone or significantly lower.

FYI, a wooden or plastic roller is almost a must when installing this...it allows you to securely attach the Dynamat to the door without much of an effort.

I bought a pack that will do 2 doors. And I also bought a pack of just a sheet that will do my back cab. Im not sure of the sq. footage at this time. Im sure you can go to their website to view packaging details.

I'm thinking about doing this not mainly for the sound of the stereo just to cut the noise from outside...I'd prefer a quieter cabin... How much weight does this add? I heard dynamat is HEAVY...
Being a standard cab I too would want to do the doors and the back panel...

Can you tell when driving with no stereo on that there is less road noise?

Thanks,
-Nigel

I noticed seeing pictures of other cars people put the dynamat inside the door and on the outside as well. Is that possible with our truck doors or stritctly how you have it is enough?

Thanks,

You will appreciate the difference it makes.

Someone mentioned this earlier in the thread and i would like to add that I used 1/2" accoustic foam on the skin of the doors and dampener on the inside panel, worked great!

Sorry for the LONG delay and for bumping this old post but I've been gone for a while.

The weight of the Dynamat is insignificant in my opinion. It is heavy to carry but not heavy enough to make any difference. Someone else may have a different opinion though.

Yes, it made a HUGE difference.

That thing is long gone. Wish I still had it though.

Yea, I forgot where I got the idea for it. But as I said above, it makes a huge difference.

A few years later, my stereo still sounds flawless....no rattling whatsoever. The bass is nice and punchy and the treble is good and bright.

I done the entire interior of my Scion that I had a few years back and it made a huge difference, I could be beside a semi truck going down the interstate and would barely hear it. Doing the roof made a huge impact, enjoy.

Figured I'd update. I did my entire interior with Raamat BXTII and ensolite. I used 4 yards of ensolite and I believe 42 sheets of the BXTII. I did the entire floor, back wall, roof around the sunroof, side pillars, both doors inside and out, and any place else I could put it.

Jason from raamat said I didn't need a roller but I picked one up anyways. Wear gloves because an aluminum cut sucks ass and goes DEEP, imagine a papercut x10... happened many times before I was like fuck this and put some mechanics gloves on. Overall the install wasn't bad. I actually used some sheet metal and blocked off the access hole in the center of the door as from their website it's was good to block off the hole. Hardest part was using ensolite, once it stuck to itself the shit was done...

I am QUITE pleased at how much quieter the inside cabin is. It's actually a noticeable difference compared to what it was. I am due for tires so and I am going to try and get ones that are more quiet honestly, since I do a lot of highway driving. Was a pain in the ass doing it all, but since I had taken shit out for the sun roof , I figured might as well do it since that was as good as it was going to get as far as timing wise... I didn't want to have to gut the interior again.

Doors are very solid as well. NICE THUD when closing. And because of taking everything out and door panels I fixed my passenger side door rattling, the hinge was all misaligned adding to the previous noisy cabin...

Wasn't hard per say but it did take me about 2 weekends to finish it completely.

Thanks,
-Nigel

That's great!! The nice "thud" from the door closing was the first thing I noticed.

Glad you did the project. How does your stereo sound??
