Did you see this? I got great results from installing carpet padding for noise reduction.

Thanks for the informative post here. I noticed that my carpet was getting wet. I thought it might be due to a bad windshield install 2 years ago. I will have to check for this same situation on my truck.

That project done! brakes, rotors, 9/16 lugs, bearings, injectors on the list for this weekend!

I measured the 2003 3500 I had and the 93 I have now and it's about 8 decibles louder in the cab now. I think some more insulation on the firewall and between tranny and the tranny hump will help.

I've got two dogs that love the beach and hate baths so I have to got with vinyl....wish I could vinyl the entire house!

I'm going to add more this spring. It's hard to drive long distance. Its way loader than before.

I have 3 small children, that was my reason for the vinyl hahahaha

john90290 Finally got a cup holder in my rolling restoration. Wasnít cheap but wanted a permanent solution. Also was bummed to replace carpet with new padding and vinyl floor after fixing the rusted floor pan on driver side only to find water inside the driver side after a heavy rain. Narrowed it down to the fresh air vent lots of folks cap it but I tried to modify it. Flipped the inside sleeve upside down, heated and bent the sleeve so it sheds water and added a plastic blade at the mid point to divert the water that was splashing in the cab. Sealed it all up with silicone. Will test tomorrow after it dries. Tested before the silicone with a hose and it all but solved the problem.
