    Best Carpet for sound reduction

    The floor of my jeep is coated in herculine, that was fine for a while. but ive been running a hardtop for about 6 months now and the noise of my motor and exhaust just echoes inside the cab.

    I'm looking for a carpet that is gonna be durable and thick enough to deaden interior noise. Ive seen the carpet kits that say their cut from plush material which sound like they would be thick, but ive also seen these vinyl flooring kits which i think may suit my purposes more.

    anybody who runs the vinyl carpet, is it thick enough to provide sound reduction ?

    do the thicker "plush" cut carpets last ?

    To reduce the echo carpet the top itself will do wonders for your hearing. Then use the regular carpet on the floor for a jeep.

    After cleaning and recoloring my carpet I cut slits where the seat bolts are, and folded and glued the carpet around the shifter so that the carpet fits over the shifter.

    Now if I want to remove my carpet it only takes about two minutes to remove and two to reinstall the carpet.

    I also herculined the Yj bed.

    Any carpet will deaden the sound and keep heat and AC in. There are not allot of options for you if you want the carpet to lay flat. Yj carpet is stretched to form fit the humps on your floor and to cover your rear wheel. If you were thinking that you can go to the corner carpet store and form fit the carpet yourself, you cannot.
