Sound and thermal insulation for floor in the CJ

I'm thinking about having the jeep dipped to remove all the paint and the previous owners DIY bed liner. I would prefer to not have any carpet, so I'm wondering what products are available to accommodate that idea. I saw Dynadeck, but haven't really found many reviews from any Jeep forums. I'd even be up for the idea of having the jeep painted, and the floor rhinolined the same color if there was something I could ad below the liner.

Thanks in advance.

You may look into lizard skin for the under side of the tub. Its a ceramic based spray on coating that deadens sound and insulates from heat.

I used that on my fire wall. Can't say it helped much because it's just on the firewall. I plan on spraying more under the tub when I pull the trans. I've heard wheel wells are a major source of sound.

I used the rubberized 3M Professional Under-coating on the underside of my tub.

It helped to dampen road noise, some.

I just roll the windows down. Drowns out everything. Oh wait I have no windows or top

I have heard undercoating of any sort helps. In my 2015 I had it done a week after purchase, huge sound difference

"How do I reduce the road noise?" asks the guy with no doors or top. HAHAHAHAH!!! (j/k)

I'm about the start working on the tub for my Black Whale project. After the metal work is done, I plan to use POR15 on the underside, engine bay, & fender wells, & then like Matt, I plan to add the rubberized undercoating.

Matt - I can't remember ... did you do you own or have a shop spray it?

do you have a hard top and doors, or soft top? If it is a soft top, there won't be much you can do to reduce road noise short of getting a hardtop/hard doors. My dad's YJ was a soft top and even with the factory carpet it was much louder than my CJ with no carpet but a hardtop/doors. You didn't mention what the top was so I assumed it was a hard top. If this is more for thermal barrier and less for sound, some of the ceramic paints available get good reviews for heat reflecting capabilities.
