Mine is very quiet. Most noise is through windows and sunroof. If I want very quiet, I close the sunroof shade.

Ripping your GC apart to add soundproofing is an invitation to creating rattles. My GC is 100% rattle-free after almost 20K miles. Personally, I do not think you will gain much.

Mine is quiet. It is funny because inside it nice and quiet and with the music on a "normal" level but step outside with doors and windows shut the music is loud...sounds like I have it cranked inside.

+1 on not removing panels to add sound proofing. Unless you have bad rattles it isn't worth the risk, to me. The WK2 seems to be better sealed, around the doors and windows, than other vehicles.

I recently went for a ride in a buddies brand new Hyundai and I couldn't help but think (to myself) how much NVH came through into the cabin. I find my GC to be very quiet.

My Overland is very quiet. My previous vehicle was a Buick Enclave, which was even quieter, but that was a completely different kind of vehicle. For the capabilities that come with the Jeep I expected a little more road noise, but was pleasantly surprised how quiet it is, even at highway speeds, and on rougher road surfaces.

My GC is extremely quiet and I have the Good Year Silent Armor tires that come on the Trailhawk, which (contrary to name) are louder than the All-Season tires on most other models [I test drove an Overland for comparison].

Now my JK is a whole different story - 35" BFG KM2s and thin doors and top make for one of the loudest cabins of any modern vehicle; still doesn't bother me. The hum of mud tires is like music to my ears.

My 14 is very quiet. Having an 8 spd makes a difference. I sometimes speed on the hwy because it is so quiet and i can't hear anything outside.

My '14 Limited is much quieter than my old '08 and much to the annoyance of my wife, quieter than her '10 MB C300!

Very quiet ride.

One thing that I thought was interesting was that if I want an even more quieter ride then I must close the sun shade as well. I thought closing the panoramic sunroof will do the job but I must close the sun shade as well. Even though sun shade is a cloth type material but I guess it still seals the gaps and helps in reducing the noise levels.

Very quiet. I had a 2010 WK and it's a world of difference.

I don't know why anyone would want to add sound deadening insulation to a Jeep Grand Cherokee but to each his own. My GC is by far the quietest vehicle I have ever owned and quieter than my boss's S65.
