    My only gripe about him is that the hardware is standard, really not a big deal but it means that you have to carry more than metric wrenches for your truck, that said I've got enough standard stuff on my truck at this point that I already have those in my toolbox but it's something to consider. Should need a 7/16 3/8 1/2 and 9/16 IIRC. (11mm, 3/8, 13mm, 14mm)

    Do you plan to do the early years rear doors speakers or just run in dual channel?

    Are.you putting a layer of reflectix up there too or is that tinfoil bubble wrap part of the noico red?

    Is there a kit you can order from them for the truck or what did you all buy to insulate the cab?

    Noico red over the sound deaden material. I can report my cab is a lot cooler since doing this mod. Totally worth it. Can't wait to do it to the 4runner as well.

    Did a drain and fill on the auto trans, cleaned throttle body, mass air flow sensor, and replaced the cabin air filter.

    I parked my truck on the street so I could safely mow the lawn. Even if the traffic doesn’t slow down, at least they have to move over. BTW, I love my Snapper battery powered mower.

    I tied the wires off for now. Haven't planned anything yet. I've always thought about cutting the rear doors, just hasn't been a realization yet. Did you do it? Looks pretty simple.

    Lol.. no, no tinfoil, duck tape, Saran wrap or bubble wrap. Just noico products.

    I used one layer of noico black noise insulation & sound dampening

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZZ48BM7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_RWP4XDDV5RGF8WZ5THXQ?_encoding=UTF8

    And one layer of noico red for temp & closed cell deadening.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TKXMPH7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_47JVPAQC4P1X6P4281Z7

    I noticed a massive difference when I finished the roof. :)

    For a lawn that size you need a riding mower! Unless you use an undersized and underpowered mower on purpose to stay outside longer...

    For the Tacoma double cab roof/floor, I used two boxes of Kilmat 80mil. (Each box 18 sq ft)
    One box of Noico Red (36 sq ft)

    Ordered two more boxes of Kilmat 80mil (2 x 36 sq ft) and whatever i have left over of the Noico Red to do the 4runner.

    Both trucks parked outside, ceramic tint all the way around, and the Tacoma is significantly cooler in cabin. Labor intensive mod, that's for sure.

    Busy weekend. Bilstein lift 2.5 inches new wheels and 285s no rubbing! Installed color matched sport door handles and mirrors. Mirrors were plug and play indicator lights work as well
    Also plasti dipped all the badges and installed color matched pop n lock. Before shot included. I was considering buying a new truck but after I saw the current insane prices I decided to spruce up my 2014 instead. 71k for a tacoma trd pro at local dealer lol? you can see the part numbers for what i did here.

    I'm really curious how the 100+ days are going to be like after doing this. I also have super dark tint all around minus the windshield.

    Ive done everything but the floor and I can say the noise reduction alone makes it a "well worth the effort" mod.

    Did you apply red noico to the doors as well?
