Ideas for carpeting

I am thinking about putting insulation and carpeting in my YJ. I wouldn't bother with it but I have a 7 month old and I want to cut down some of the interior noise.
I figure I would just get some automotive insulation and some cheap carpeting and cut it and glue. Another option is a pre- fit carpet piece off of like quadratec.
Any ideas
Anyone done this before?

I haven't done that, but from reading about 3M rubberized undercoat, I've heard it can cut down on cabin noise a little bit. May want to look into that as well.

It's a YJ man. Not muc you can really do about interior noise. Hard top echos like mad, though I have heard adding a headliner to that can help. Soft top flaps like crazy. Noise from the floor is the least of the concerns

I was thinking of insulating the hard top and adding carpet there too as a head liner. Its more for the comfort if the baby is riding in there than for myself

I tore out the raggedy old carpet when i bought mine and went without anything other than 3m undercoating for years but recently i rolled some dynamat insulation down, then i installed a oem carpet replacement set from oconne offroad, they were cheaper. Many would not replace the carpet but I do not regret it. My cab is much warmer and less noisy. The hardtop and doors are still pretty drafty. good luck

i think the roll on and then some carpet would be the way to go. thats my plan. and add something to the top too. my wife's 93 yj had all the interior carpet in it and she never pulled it. it was nice on the highway. mine has nothing in it but seats and its pretty loud and cold or hot, depending on season.

it will help. like mentioned id do some sort of liner like monstaliner or herculiner and then use some carpet. i would make it easily removable though. if you have a friend with a carpet kit ask him if you can borrow it to use as a template.

Use a carpet kit, don't glue.
