Insulation in 110 200tdi

Looking to do some insulation in the truck and looking for advice... For those of you who've done this, does it make sense (is it necessary) to pull the dash out? I would imagine getting insulation behind the dash is a good idea, but want to hear some thoughts.

Thanks in advance!

Under the bonnet, inside the door bottoms and over the trans tunnel would be the my first areas I'd address. I wouldn't get your hopes up too high. Even the brand new 300tdi's I've driven were loud and somewhat difficult to hold conversations or hear the radio at highway speeds. Just the nature of the vehicle IMO.

IMHO just buy the real rubber molded mat system.

Don't try to diy unless you're a master of fabrication.

Like the Exmoor one? Or is there another you'd suggest?

For the enginebay, I put Eastwood X-mat underhood insulator for the hood, a Noisekiller engine blanket and a 300 tdi sound proof valve cover cut to fit 200 tdi (Product Details - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts).

I used leftover x-mat to line the transmission tunnel and where I could reach on the bulkhead. I didn't remove the dash. Make sure you have the foam seal sound insulator for the transmission hole (SEAL GEAR LEVER DEFENDER 90, RNN992, ETX500050 - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts).

For the inside, I lined dynamat, Sound deadener showdown MLC and CCF for the doors and put 3/4" rubber padding from tractor supply to line the floors (4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. Thick Rubber Stall Mat - For Life Out Here). I used dynaliner for the roof. I plan on getting an exmoor moulded matting system as well.

All of this, made it quiet-ER, but not quiet. I still bought pilot earmuffs for when my kids ride with me.

I've only seen the exmoor trim version, unfortunately...I don't know much about the other options (like the Wright Offroad). My guess is that there is some kind of "genuine" version that also costs significantly more than the other options

As far as I can tell Wright Off road makes the Exmoor mat. You just pay more for the brand name. I went straight to wright off road and saved a lot of money. That was before the brexit stuff so now it would be even cheaper. The guy is really nice to deal with too. Give him a call. Much faster than email.

The mat system is the single greatest improvement to my interior. It cut noise down substantially.

Sounds good Might explain why Wright doesn't have prices listed online!

Looks like the cost of the Wright is better by about 30% compared to Exmoor, but I'm not sure how much shipping will cost from the UK. Still checking on that part.
