Well, I finally got done putting raammat BXT in my truck. I did one layer on my firewall, floor, back wall, and a little on the extended cab sides. Thanks again to everyone here who helped me with the little problems that came up while removing my interior.
On to the review:
Since putting the raammat in, I can no longer here the motor when it idles, it is dead silent. I can also barely hear the exhaust(I have a 2 1/2" catback with a 14" muffler) at idle as well. When driving, the truck sounds more solid than before. When I drive over bumps in the road I hear a faint thump as opposed to the medium-level clunk that I used to hear. All road noise that came from the floor is completely gone now. Also, the exhaust is now a low grumble inside the cab and does not drown out the music I am listening to when I get on the skinny pedal anymore. When I get on the gas, I can barely hear the engine as well, a little bit of intake noise is all I can hear. Overall, I think the raammat worked pretty well and lowered the in-cab noise level by at least a good 30-40%. The one thing that I think would have given me better results is if I had done the doors. Since the road noise from the floor is gone, I can really notice the noise coming through the doors. If I had done the doors as well, it would be REALLY quiet inside the cab. But I am happy with my results and I feel that it was worth the trouble of removing and re-installing the entire interior. And to show you the affects of the raammat, my normal music listening volume setting on my Clarion head unit used to be 12.....but now it is 10, now that I don't have to drown out as much road noise as I used to.
