XJ Insulated Body Panels

My XJ is loud....
So was yours...
You did something about it....
I want to....

What kind of insulation did you use to avoid water absorbsion or rot.

If you have pics, please share as I would like a bit more of a barrier for winter if it actually makes a difference.

Thanks!

P.S. Doesn't have to be just xj's, if you used it in another jeep, I'm all for your ideas

You could use dynamat, it really quiets things down. But its a little pricey. There are other alternatives out there, just do some searches on Google for insulating a car

^^^ I like it.

Aside from the camo covering, is it resonably priced to do the roof with the matting?

Thanks!

i had bout 225 total in the job. i think the mating was like 125 dollars, its a bit high but 1/2 the price of dynomat. i think what he bought for me was hvac duct insulation its the exact same thing as this here on ebay.. the camo was 40 bucks and i use heavy duty fabric glue (stuff was high like 27 dollars a bottle) from the fabric store and a large rolling pin to smooth it out on the (removed) headliner

That's not bad at all. I like the HVAC padding, thats actually a really good idea. I appreciate the tips.

Thanks!
