Sound deadening my entire cab

I had a thread running on another site as I did the work but didn't post here... here's how it all worked out

I've done sound deadening for the entire cab of my B4000 extended cab. I used B-Quite ultimate http://www.b-quiet.com/ultimate.html. B-Quite product is very high quality and easy to install... It takes time but pretty fun taking everything apart for the interior. Just make sure you've got trim tools as taking out the clips without them sucks.

Final results are great. The truck is much quieter and rattle free and most impressive is the truck just feels much more solid and better quality. I noticed the doors done including the back the second you open and close the doors. So much more solid. Next was less road noise and silence on the road and no more noise from the body panels when I go over bumps :cool:

How much material? I ball parked what I was going to need on some rough measurements. The measures are generous... it would add up to 86sq/ft and I used 100sq/ft but included a lot of doubling in many parts.

Floor 54x71 = 27 sq/ft
Back Wall 56x19 = 7 sq/ft
Roof 46x50 = 16 sq/ft
Front doors inner 36x24x2 = 12 sq/ft
Front doors outer 36x24x2 = 12 sq/ft
Rear Door outer 17x26x2 = 6 sq/ft
Rear Door inner 17x26x2 = 6 sq/ft

Biggest install surprise was how long it took... many many hours. Thankfully I had a friend helping and it's fun work.

First I started and did the floor and the back wall of the truck. This took about 8hrs with a friend helping


Next I continued and did the roof which only took about 2-3 hours. I did double layer on the main roof panel and plan to do the same on the exterior door panel.


Another day I finished the major work with the Drivers door, Passengers door and the back doors and I installed jimmijammer at the same time. (I should post about that too in another thread)

This time I was working inside so crappy light plus iphone so only a few pics. Here's the inside of a front door with the only the outer panel done and then the back door with the outer panel and the interior done.

All the little pieces are for working around the mounting pins instead of covering them and pushing through plus was last door/material. Inside panel is more rattle proofing vs sound proofing and wow does it work.






I did a few things and thought I was done but... once you get to where I was you'll start to hear other rattles and can pin point them.

First was the cup holders... a cup/can in the cup holders rattles as mine are hard plastic on the base. I went searching and found the material I wanted in an Ipad2 protector. Cut some circles to fit doing the sizing with a cup I kept cutting to get the right size size and now now more rattle

and lastly the glove box... noisey little piece. I took it out, took it apart and sound proofed it


So I thought I was done but as I chased the last of the rattles away I found one more that kept coming back from the glove box door and I figured out I made a mistake on the sound proofing. Took it apart again and sound proofed where the inner piece meets the outside (redline in pic) and then I was really done.

Looks great! Nice to hear you got good results out of it.

I've had 100ft2 of it in my cupboard since summer before last. I guess I should get at it. It is a PIA job but I know it should help quiet things down.

All that sound deadener looks great, and as an added bonus, you won't have to worry about alien mind probes while you're driving.

As a redneck who sometimes drives lonely country roads at night in a pickup truck, it's not the mind probes I'm worried about ...

Rednecks in pickup trucks are like a goddam magnet for aliens and their probes!

Awesome mod. I wish Ford would do this standard (or even as an option) from the factory on their vehicles. LR

When I was installing I said to a friend that they should have this stock... he replied some cars come with it but they coast $60K.

I wonder how much cost would really be for a builder to do this when building the truck?
