Stick this or something similar on the stainless plates or under carriage. It will reflect the heat back. I used to use this on race car builds frequently. It works great. The gold stuff is a little pricey, I think they have a silver one that doesn't work quite as good but is cheaper.

I put down a coat of Al's heat and noise reducer in my 109. Made a huge difference in noise and heat. In low range, it knocked the noise off the transfer case significantly.

Before when I wore pants, my legs would be sweating. Now it's a lot more pleasant.

Its cheap on Amazon. If anyone is rebuilding and painting a truck, I see no reason not to put a coat of this stuff down before paint. Makes a big difference for the buck. I bought mine off amazon, so, free shipping ftw. A spray gun would have been nicer but I hollered it in.

Found a roll of exhaust wrap in the misc parts box and installed it on the tubing under the seatbox. While laying underneath and surveying the situation I'm also suspicious of the amount of heat transfer from the xfer case to the seatbox. Let see if the wrap helps.

Has anyone determined here what the best material would be to put on the underside of the seat box, specifically the areas that would absorb heat from the transfer case and exhaust? Presumably need something that's fairly water resistant/repellant down there, right?

make sure your panels are tight (under the cubby) - mine were gapped and so i had a huge influx of hot tranny air coming in.. i fixed that and its good (plus adding the exmoor matting) - wrap the exhaust but its the cats that need it

Dave, the stuff you saw on my rig is the same stuff. I had a roll of it and used it on the front floor boards and the top of the seat box. It works well.

Yes. Not nearly as good as the stuff I suggested, but better then nothing.

Are we talking about putting stuff on the underside of the car and seat box or in the interior?

You used it on the inside of the truck, not on the underside, right?

Yeah, did Jason do the same? Just trying to figure out if it'd hold up to the elements, if so, gonna buy same-day amazon right now!

Saw that stuff, it's interesting. I'd love to combine some eat reflection with at least a little sound deadening by using some sort of thicker material.

Jason stuck the insulation on the inside and then covered it with an Exmoor mat. I have some radio equipment in my seatbox that needs to be kept from overheating so it needs to be insulated from the underside.

I've been looking at roof stick-on insulation from Home Depot.
A friend put them on the inside of car and works well. In fact, most of the positive reviews on Home Depot for this product are for use in insulating in cars.

$20 for a 1'x15' roll.

I've used this but on the interior of a car, not sure how. It would hold up underneath one. Also gets kinda sticky when hot
