I keep hearing this from people. I bought a Wright Offroad matt years ago and I don't think it made a discernable difference. It looks pretty much the same as yours, except it's gray.

Then again, yours is a V8 and mine's a 200tdi, so I'm fighting a losing battle. I used Al's HNR this summer very liberally all over pretty much the whole floor as well as both sides of the bulkhead, and if anything the truck seems noisier after I got it all back together. That's probably a combination of getting used to driving the Volvo more while the 110 was apart, and the new roll cage making more noise at speed. At this point I've basically decided it's a losing battle trying to get my truck quieter, and I should just continue to carry ear plugs.

I put in some new front door seals. I already upgraded to the new style lower seals front and rear. I have my strikers adjusted all the way out and you still really have to put some force into shutting the door.

FYI I got them through our dealership and they had them in stock in the NJ warehouse. The rear door seals are backordered at the moment.

I have the same problem with one of my doors, not wanting to close. I'm assuming the hinges are bad.

Picked up five Boosts today on my lunch break. They're dirty, but in overall good shape. I'm repainting one of them.

Replaced the stock Tuffy Armpad with a thinner/lower profile pad. Thx for the idea Keith!
