3 rolls is best to do it all real good. The doors take more than you would think because you need to double the area of each door if you put it on both the outer skin and the inner panel. If you plan on gutting your truck you are better off spending the money up front and getting the extra roll unless you can afford to be an extra week without your truck while you wait OR but it all back together in between.

If you can only work on it in stages, I say, door the doors one weekend and the floor the next. You'd be amazed at how much time it takes to do a good job of sound deadning!

I went through 2 rolls and a few yards of the ensolite foam...

T22a80 is right, it will definitely take you longer than you anticipate.

I did all 4 doors, floor, backwall, and then layered everything with foam. Did the inner door as well.

My immediate impression was that it definitely made the truck quieter, tightened up the midbass a good bit as well.

what does the foam do?
The foam blocks road noise and insulates the car. I think I used like 4 yards and 4 rolls of BXT but it might have been more, I had to order more when the first order was not enough... I still need more to do the ceiling eventualy maybe I'm so tired of doing that **** I don't know if I will ever go through it again.

I did 2 layers of BXT on the outer door panel and 3 right behind the speaker and in a few other places. Also put some foam behind the speaker to help with standing waves.

I put 2 layers on the inner panel as well which may have been overkill and also compleatly sealed the door up with it then a layer of foam as well (not the best way but you wills ee why I got lazy once you got started. Don't deaden over the door pop holes it will be a PITA later. I even put a layer of deadening on the door panels themselves because when I was done the stupid panels themselves were still vibrating. My doors will not stay open on really steep hills now due to the weight. They are easier for me to close now though, but harder for some people lol.

I used a layer on floor + foam, and doubled up on about 1/2 of it. Also used 2 layers on the back wall + foam again. I ended up removing my door panels like 3 times and the rear wall a bunch of times as well to add foam later and then wiring later and then an amprack still later.

Needless to say I added alot of weight to the truck and I'm not so motivated to do the roof and overhead conole which are now my main source of fixable rattles. I'm not sure how to get my light covers (all 3) to stop ratteling like crazy :( maybe if I add enough weight to the roof the covers themselves will receive less vibration.

Does it matter weather it is cold or hot to instal deadener? If I were to do it it is going to be cold most likely.

Rick the owner of Raamatt told me that it should be above 50 degrees to get the best adhesion. He said you could probably do it when its a little colder but it wont stick as well.

You better hurry up winter is coming fast! haha

Is it the dynamatt extreme? If so, wear gloves and you will need one of those stupid roller things. That stuff cuts up your hands bad!!!

I think that there is only about 12 square feet in those and its 100 bucks thats why I didnt use it. So if you have 2 sets thats about 1/2 a roll of Rammatt. So I'd say if you bought 2 rolls of Rammatt you'll have extra left over. You could probably get away with only one but that depends on how much you plan on doing.
