what i will use is a self-sticking membrane with a foil on the other side, works well

I did an experiment using some cheaper duct insulation (sticky foam with heavy aluminum foil on it) and it did cut down on the noise quite a bit. Total cost about $12. I know there is more expensive stuff out there (Dynamat) but for the money it was worth a try.

combined with the rear panel it realy cuts down on the noise ,you can talk instead of yealing at your passenger

I turned my cowl upside down and sprayed a layer of expanding foam over it after it was dry I carved out needed areas for clearance. Been working good for 3 years.

I don't know what mine was rated for. I do know that there is a new foam on the market made to use as a firestop in buildings. That would be the one to use now.

Are you guys doing this on full cabs? As far as the rear panel, Do you mean rear cab panel or just behind the seats?
The reason i am asking is that i have a windshield and a roof, but no rear window or doors, so i am just courious if this will help with the motor and intake noise that i hear?

well what i meant by the back panel is a cab rear panel
(rear windshield) by insulating the cap it projects the sound towards the rear cargo box so with a soft panel or hard panel whatever you choose it stops the sound from getting back in the cab

what i am using is sound proof sheets it is about 1/8 of an inch thick so being that thin it leaves a lot of air space in the cap. you can get these sheets at napa autoparts it comes in a box of 9 pcs and they are 10 x 20 sheets it is a little bit longer to install cause you got to heat it up with a heatgun to make them bend as desired
