Cool Reduce interior cab noise

Hey guys, I have a 95 wrangler with the 2.5l in it with a set of headers and a high-flow cat finishing it up with a thrush turbo muffler. I changed the muffler yesterday to see if it would reduce the interior exhaust tone, it helped a little but nothing to much. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to make the in-cab noise any quieter. I have a hard top and the floors are carpeted. I was thinking of maybe wrapping my entire exhaust system with thermo wrap because i know it reduces noise coming from the pipes, but was also thinking on using the roll on bedliner in the spring to seal up the inside. Let me know what you guys think i should do. Any suggestions will help

Might want to try some self adhering sound Matting from a stereo shop on the floor. Or change to a turbo or flowmaster muffler. I have a turbo on mine and it has a nice rumble when you step on it but nit loud on the highway. I still have stock cat though.

1st. Jeeps are noisey. Its the nature of the beast.
2nd. If you off road dont put sound mat down on the floor it will get moldy and stink.
3rd. If I were you I'd first get a hardtop seal kit. To seal it around the tup and windshield frame. Herculine the tub floor. (Getting a good thick layer of it down) Put the carpet back in. Then get some thick slush mats for the front and one for the cargo area.
4th. If that wasnt enough I'd get some car insulation from jcwhitney and a hardtop headliner. First put the insulation up. Then put up the headliner to cover it up. To be real anal you could even bedline the inside of the hardtop with a reall thick layer then do the insulation and headliner.
5th. If all that doesn't solve your problem then at least youll be toasty warm in the winter time.

You can get lizard skin. It is a spray on sound deadener. A lot of hot rod shops are using it. Then you can paint or herculiner it.

was also going to recommend lizard skin, i have not used it but they got 2 types heat control and sound control. i personally want to use both, the heat control on the tranny hump and sound on the rest of it.

Awesome, I have never heard of lizard skin before but am definitely willing to try it out, do you buy it offline or is there a store around that may sell it?
