Noise reduction

Road noise in TJ is excessive. Has anyone had any reasonable success with spray in bedliners or other methods of sound control?

It has been my experience that lining your tub will not reduce the sound. How much money are you willing to spend to get the sound to go away?

if road noise was such a concern then perhaps you should have considered an entirely different vehicle than the wrangler

road noise reduction

I'll leave the the German wheels to others. The price of a spray-on bedliner is acceptable. I would like to be able to conduct business on the cell or hear the stereo. As my DD I find myself
driving at 70 regularly on asphalt gravel roads.
Any help is appreciated.

I would say get a hard top, other than that you can pretty much give up having a quiet vehicle with a wrangler!!

Conduct business in a jeep? *blink* If im on the phone...its usually to a wrecker or one of my backwoods friends tellin them directions to where im stuck lol.
But as far as the air noise or road noise...hard top...hard doors ....rhino lining...and keep your carpet in.

but then again.. thats business to us =p

i can hear people on my cell as long as i keep my doors on.. if they are off ill have to go under 30 to hear them..

also.. change out your stock speakers if you want to hear your music.. my sounds great.. even going 70 with my top/doors off

also... id go with rubber flooring before rhinolining it.. then simply just lay your carpet back over it..

and since you have a hard top.. get a soft top for the summer or even a bikini top.. this will displace the wind a lil too

You can invest into a sailcloth soft-top. I love mine, but other than that unless I have the windows down (which is all the time) its quite.

I have the hard top and you can use the cell phone with that on and the windows up.

Bur seriously, this isn't the best car to "conduct business" in.
For that I have a newer Acura TL!

If you can sew, make a liner for your hard top, if not then pay an upholstery shop to do it. The hard top makes it like a big drum and amplifies the noise, most people just get used to it but if you line the top with a bit of foam and fabric it should reduce the noise considerably.

Question for MoA

Your advice is appreciated. Please explain your reasoning for rubber before rhinolining. Is this a rubber floor cushion or some liquid material?
Also, I realize the TJ is not a cadillac I am just trying to quiet it a bit.

Liner for hardtop

Any ideas on what type of adhesive to use that will hold to the plastic top and the foam?
What type plastic is the top made from?

you could probably apply a layer with 2 faced tape to test it out.
I don't know what the tops are made of.

Headliner

After looking at it a little closer a liner could be laid on top of the roll cage with a little black velcro to secure it.

Just a thought - You may also want to look into different tires, depending on how aggressive your tread is they might be adding to the noise level more than anything else.
