    I lucked out and got the MOLLE panel on the first group buy (post revival). One of my favorite mods.

    Yeah, that was the inspiration, but IMO, it still leaves a lot of potential space on the table, and requires, well, molle pouch stuff. I want something more efficient and flexible for my needs.

    I have pouches on about half the panel, more for the top level organization of the back wall. Some stuff just has Velcro straps or is just sitting on the cab floor at the base of the storage area. One thing I've found for whatever you choose to put back there is to make sure to leave enough room to either get your fingers back there to mount stuff or to get to whatever mounting device you decide on.
    One thing I thought about was to cover a piece of plywood with cheap audio carpet (big box stuff) and create a Velcro wall. Endless possibilities and quick mount/release.

    My idea was to include hinges at the bottom of the panels and use bolts that the top to secure them. So fold down, reconfigure, fold up, put stuff in, put seats back up to make sure they clear, etc. becomes a relatively quick process. And yes, the would need to allow some space for fastener heads protruding into the void between the panel and the wall. I guess after sound deadening, I'll see how much of that available volume is consumed by insulating materials.

    FWIW, I didn't add the MLV and noticed considerable sound improvement- enough to make the project worth it. Given that I've only done the roof and back wall, I'd say that's pretty good. Seeing as the MLV is the thickest of all the materials, you may or may not need/want it.
    Also with that, I've been in @Crom 's truck and closing the door gives you a solid thud that you'd expect from a Maybach. Crazy quiet European luxury.

    @scocar is finally actually talking about his build...

    ...and not doing it in his "build" thread.

    After I did the leg work...
    At least now it's showing below. I wonder why it wasn't showing before. Hyperlink incompatibility?

    Yeah, that is pretty much what THIS GUY VVVV said. Some of my favorite trips involve fairly long (5-6 hour) stints to the other side of the Sierra, similar to Nick's, literally humming along on Highway 395 at high speed for long periods. I'm very interested in improving overall comfort, and my hearing is getting shittier, and my little boy will be wanting to talk to us from the back seat, and it is probably one of the most sensible things to do before advancing to improving the sound system.
    Hey, GFY pal!

    Who the hell is moderating this site anyway? It's a unmitigated shit-show.

    Hitting the doors first might net you the biggest improvement. Secondly, it's a toss-up between back wall and roof. My roof project had a different goal (thermal insulation), but sound improvement was a pleasant and expected side-effect. IIRC, you have ST Maxx' so the highway hum will get more pronounced as they wear down (currently at about 20k on mine). If you had MTs, I'd say hit the doors then back wall and leave the roof for last. Adding the secondary door weather stripping would also help achieve a quieter cabin and rid the Tacoma Kazoo.

    I've consistently heard the back wall nets the biggest benefit for deadening. Something about the added resonance between the exterior back of the cab wall and the front wall of the bed. Plus when I stick my head back between the seats when driving, it just sounds louder back there. :notsure: The doors just look to be a fiddly PITA, especially to the extent Nick did them, so I also figured the back wall would be an easier way to familiarize myself with the materials before going to town elsewhere. And when I pull all the plastic out, that will eliminate a degree of sound insulation that already exists. So....

    Thanks for all the input. This is really helpful.

    I will say the back wall is a prefect place to get familiar with the materials. It's the easiest to get to with the least amount of effort/disassembly and you can see what you're working on without contorting or blindly reaching in the truck's door cavities. Good luck. Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.

    Nick has said before that he doesn't mind the cross-talk in his thread as long as it is beneficial to learning about our trucks (something like that). None of that "LOL" bullshit or useless cheesecake posts here.

    I've completed the back wall on my access cab and can notice a difference. I put down Noico 157 mil first, then went over that with Noico 80 mil. Both are sound deadener, audio noise insulation, and both were self-adhesive. I'm thinking the floor is next. That's were a lot of the road noise is coming from in my opinion. After doing the back my stock stereo sound better, and It cut down some road noise.

    When we caged my truck the back wall got 2 layers and the floor and roof each got 1 layer. The road noise and tire noise aren't nearly as bad. But with the cage and bypasses you still can't hear yourself talk lol

    Ok, I think we can all agree that the noise is primarily coming from the sides, top, bottom, font, and back.

    I was told the floor is the most important and after doing back, roof, and doors but not floor, I think this might be true. :facepalm:

    Yes doing the floor of a truck/car is a huge improvement. We did our shop widebody STI with dynomat and the floor and doors made the biggest difference. The added weight to the doors and damping of the overall door itself literally changed the way the door sounded like when you closed it. It felt like a solid mercedes door instead of a crappy subaru one. After doing dynomat on the entire car the limiting factor for us was the glass - it was the only thing we couldn't touch.
