Exmoor Rubber Mat Set

For those of you who have installed the Exmoor rubber mat kit- the pricey one that does the floor and seat box. What are your thoughts? Does it really reduce noise? Considering it for my 300 Tdi 110 and was curious. Not expecting it to be as quiet as a sedan but it would be nice to hear the kids questions (sometimes).

I know that most folks dislike carpet but would that kit have more insulation properties or would the rubber kit?

I've done the dynamat under the hood and have slowly been using dynamat in the doors and other areas where I expose the metal and can apply it. The dynamat hood kit did wonders by the way. Hood barely vibrates like it used to and the sound deadening was significant.

Thanks,
Alex

I'm actually finishing mine up today...the complete kit and I will be in Colorado on the 8th of this week if you want to see it. I'm using dynamat under it also. Guess I'll see if it was worth it when I hit the road. I know it's taken me way too long to finish this. I haven't driven my 90 in two weeks. Plus I'm installing the military sun roof and a new to me rack.

That would be good to see it. I've been holding off out of sticker shock and laziness for the install. Where in CO are you planning to be?

yes it's hard to take/make the time to just get it done! I will be in Fort Collins the day of the 8th (noonish) and morning of the 9th then heading back to the Great Republic of Texas...

PM me your info and I'll call you when I get into town....?!?

You could also get the td5 seat box cover and floor cover for the same effect and probably same price.

I've got them in my truck and I'm very pleased. It does help quite a bit with the noise.

I live in Golden if you want to have a look.

Does dynamat actually make a hood kit for the Defender? Or did you just cut it to fit? Either way...pictures!

So, like everyone else here has told themselves, when I started this install I new I was asking for a long day...14 hours later I'm done. Touch up paint, bolt upgrade, sound pads, cleaning, complete Exmoor kit (3 pieces) now for the sunroof...already have it out...time to go back in the hole.

While the td5 seat box mat is better than nil, it is not in the same league as the Exmoor Trim seatbox mat. Not even close.

I really love my Exmoor mat. It does quiet the inside noise and lessen heat (the heat was the main thing I was going for with my application). Just keep in mind that it's still not a Mercedes or anything... just a little better. The mats also dress up the interior. They look great and along with my new seat retrims, the interior looks new(er).

Seems like the consensus is the mat is worth the time and money. Not expecting it to be a Mercedes- although tempting to trade it some days- but would be nice to hear the stereo and the kids (sometimes).

Another thing to look at for noise and heat mitigation is to make sure that you have the high density foam insulator that fits between your transmission and your shifter boot.

Mine was missing, and putting that back in was helpful as well.

The td5 seat box mat is made of ~1/8" high density vinylish material with a thin closed cell foam backing. The total thickness is ~1/4". I don't have a beef with the material so much as, all of the cut outs for seat anchorages, lid flaps etc. Which in my experience, makes the mat rather acoustically porous, at least to my ear. Don't get me wrong, the mat is a huge improvement over an unfinished seat box.

The Exmoor Trim seat box mat is made of a different material and is a much better fit. The only holes and cut outs are the ones you put in it. The mat is always at least 1/4" and in places up to 1/2" thick. Portions of the tunnel/floor board mat also have a layed of closed cell foam embedded on the bottom. Perhaps the tight fit between the Exmoor trim seat box, tunnel/floor board and bulkhead mats gives it the edge over the td5 bits, but IMO, I'm very glad I switched from the td5 mats to the Exmoor Trim 3 piece set.

Well, after driving for nine hours today I would say the heat exchange is reduced by half. The noise by a third...it really refreshes the interior. I also added the Dynamat and I'm sure that added to the benifits.
