    I'm planning on deadening a 2009 Double cab. All 4 doors, floors, and rear wall for sure. Considering ceiling as well, depending on how it goes. Anybody know how many sq ft of fatmat and how many yards of ensolite I should start with? Anybody have any experience with the deadening the ceiling and whether it's worth it or not? Thanks!

    Don't forget that we get a discount with RAAMmat.

    I bought 62.5 sq ft. of mat and 14 sq. ft (3 yards) of Ensolite

    I just got done applying RAAMmat to the following in my DC:
    the inner portion of the front door
    the outer portion of the front door
    triple 9"x9" layers directly behind the front speaker on the inner portion of the front door
    small strips along the rear wall ( i didn't want to do the whole thing because the sound deadener would add too much thickness for me to fit the sub & amp rack in)

    I added Ensolite to the front doors and the complete rear wall.

    I still have a lot left over, enough that I know I can finish the inner and outer portions of the rear doors. If I wanted to do ceiling and floors, I might have to buy an extra roll of mat.


    I'm not too sure about floor and ceiling, as I have been told there's a point of diminishing return, and you are never going to turn the vehicle into a complete tomb

    Zero... you need Raammat. haha. Joking, use what makes you happy. I think that 120 sqft will give you enough to do the doors inside and out, backwall and ceiling with some extra to spare.

    5 yards of ensolite is sufficent to do almost whole cab aside from ceiling. 6 yards if you want to do the ceiling

    Step bars, billet grill with custom TOYOTA, MB Quart RSI 216 components, Hifonics ZXi 4410, RAAMmat deadened doors/back wall/roof covered with ensolite , 24" Magnaflow muffler, hand polished stock exhaust tip, tinted, OEM TRD Bilstiens all around with 1/4" spacers up front to level it out. Sport wheels added.
    I just did my reg cab with one roll of RAMMat and 3 yds of ensolite. Best deal going out there right now IMO.

    I was able to cover the inside of the outter door skin, the inner door panel, complete back wall, roof and about 3/4 of the floor with matting. I covered the inner door panel, complete rear wall and roof with Ensolite and have almost a yard left. I should have covered the floor with the left over Ensolite, but thought of it after I put it all back together. doh


    As far as if it was worth it to do the roof? If you got the stuff to do it, why not?

    I did the doors first....drove the truck for a few days then did the roof. I can tell you that I can hear an audible difference and it was definitely worth the effort. It only takes about 3 hours to pull the roof components, install the mat and cover with Ensolite.

    I'd avoid the fatmat, I've used both Raammat and Fatmat. The fatmat isn't very thick, and I had adhesion problems. The Raammat is more sticky and easier to apply. I'd wear latex gloves, the raammat sticks to your fingers after awhile, then your pants, transfers to the seat and now you're cleaning your seats.

    Remember Raammat is a vibration dampner not a noise barrier, there's a distinct difference. Ensolite is a noise absorber for higher frequency ranges.

    For most a vibration dampner and noise absorber offer the most bang for the buck, and you'll see a noticeable reduction in overall noise.
