Got some sound deadening from a buddy today. Got a couple sheets in while I was killing some time this morning. Gotta pull the seats and get the other 10+ sheets in. Hoping this helps with the noise as well as some heat. I may have to get some heat shield to go over this if it still let’s in too much heat. Ever since I pulled the carpet, the noise and heat have been terrible to deal with. My plan is to get some vinyl flooring, but I wanna get the insulation dealt with first.
Anyone have any experience with this stuff?

Not that particular brand but all sound deadening is just butyl. Put it down. Roll it on with a small butyl roller. Heat gun it and your done.

You can use strips to deaden just the areas that resonate instead of covering everything. Its a bitch or just buy 2-3 boxes and cover as much as you can. I have a write up on that 'other' site.

Ideally you want 100mil with good alum backer. unfortunately not many made for consumers level install. The noico is damn good. Get a roller. Take out all the interior. Layer of the butyl mat, then a decoupling closed cell foam layer before the mass loaded vinyl for best results.

Also while it's apart, add some insulation into the roof and floors. You'll be amazed at the difference it makes. I used 3m thinsulate insulation for automotive. Couldn't find it on Bezosworld besides as a huge roll.

Surprised your front end didn't disintegrate. :rofl:
Took it like a champ lol
(He’s trying to justify upgrades)
Those are in the works.
It was hard to hear what you broke over the wind noise. lol
Nothing I’m aware of. I hit it a few times and it felt alright. Obviously it’s not valved for jumping but it took it well. No weird noises or rubbing.
break those motor mounts. Yep, honey, gotta get an all new engine now. Darn.
Lol, right?
The transmission mount is shot and when I landed it shifted into neutral. Good excuse for LS swap.
Motor mounts and perches have already been upgraded from lots of other abuse.

Whoa! Not sure how I missed this. Stock width? Dang, it seems like everyone is jumping onto doing this now! I dig... I hope to have mine done soon. So far, loving 4wd, I can't believe what I was missing out on!
I never even knew you were 2wd until you started posting here. Crazy you were missing out on the fun this whole time. Do you have lockers yet? That just ups the fun level again.

Yeah! Just to make you feel a little old... the reason I built a 2wd with the intentions of swapping was because back when the 4R was first released, my parents brought me home when I was born, in the very same 2.7L 5-speed I own now. I put all the parts together while I was in college: Drivetrain + extras (twin stick, rear locker housing, manual hub parts and then the coilovers). Now that I am making enough money to not be completely broke, I was able to pull it all together and then I got the itch to start chopping suspension parts and do the whole 'Mid-travel' thing. It's been a cavernous rabbit hole. I would like a front locker. That would be sweet. I'm going to change to an air locker though.

Think this was just a tiny bit overdue...
Bought a couple new filters (one for spare), and ordered a prefilter from Outerwears. The model I selected was for the RZR 800. It should be a perfect fit for this filter based on the specs. It’s also water repellent which should definitely help a little too since in still haven’t done fender liners yet. I need to get that done before winter.

I don’t have an air box anymore. It’s just an 89 Honda Prelude filter snuggly stuffed into my engine cage. Nothing securing it down besides it just being in there lol. After a few trips of offroading it starts to look like this. No fender liners means lots of dust but also means rocks and twigs don’t have anywhere to hang out in an air box.
might wanna put a screen around the new one..JUST checked mine. FULL of twigs, leaves and junk. Ok, mesh over the fender opening...

thats looks fancy.
These filters have the screen on the inside only. I’m sure I could find an upgraded one like that but I’m cheap and lazy.
