Great post, I was really set on the AP LT kit but after reading this it just doesn't make any sense (to me that is) to spend all that money. I decided to pull the trigger on a decent mid-travel set up as a comprimise.

That's nice for a the Degans. As I said in another post, if you are going to complain about the noise then don't LT or don't DD a LT truck.

I do DD an LT truck and I don't complain about the noise (I made this thread...)

Look at the luxury prerunners, they're dynamatted to keep the noise down. The reason you don't see more LT trucks doing it is $$$ - I'd rather spend that money on bigger, badder suspension components.

This guy was talking about dynomatting:

But my question is: Does anyone think that Dynamatting will help with the noise?
I would also rather spend on suspension. It is a LT truck after all.

My truck is LT in the front and I have no extra noise. The noise really comes when you cage it. Then all of the vibrations are coming through the cage and lack of interior (Eric isnt even LT and he has the noise). Dynomat or whatever wont help that much. If you can just put your headliner and other stock stuff back in with the roll cage it will do the same thing
