    So my new Tacoma came with the Sound Shield option and I always wondered if it was something interior or exterior in the form of sound deadening. I was under the truck today and noticed that under the driver's side part of the cab there was some black undercoating sprayed over the white seam sealant and a few other areas. If this is the Sound Shield option, it is the most piss poor excuse of an option that I have ever seen, it was hardly sprayed on anything.

    They did manage to get a nice coat of overspray on the driveshaft which I spent 30 minutes removing. Nice to see grease zerts on the u-joints and names like Dana and Spicer under there. Anyone know what the driveshaft is made out of? My Nismo Frontier and Jeep Grand Cherokee were aluminum, this one does not look like it is the same material though.

    See if a magnet sticks to the shaft...that'll tell you.

    I have been slowly adding dynamat (It's not just for stereos)to kill some of the road noise, it's working real nice. Did the back wall and back door so far, makes a huge difference.Next will be front doors, roof and maybe the floor.
