    I used lizard skin, heat and sound control with raptor liner on top on the inside and underside. Since this will mostly be an open top, no need for carpet.
    Have duct insulation on the inside of the doors with a R value of 4 and self adhesive, found at Lowe's.
    Have no experience on something else I heard about, Spectrum found on amazon, appears to be similar to lizard skin.

    I hadn’t heard of it, so I had to search. It’s not at all what I’m thinking. I want something you lay in, and can remove if need be.

    I just finished with Hushmat. Super easy to roll in. This is my 1st experience with the stuff, Mike Moore of Scoutco recommended it to me, its what they use in all of their builds. I got it 25% off on St Patricks day too, its about $8 sheet. Start at a seam, peel the backing paper off as you go, roll it down. Made in USA.

    I used the Noico mat, came from Amazon, similar to the Hush mat and installs the same way. It is NOT removable though. I am happy with it! Also used carpet from Stock Interiors, with the Jute back. I am happy with it as well. The jute is a pain to cut though.

    What is the material like with that Hushmat? I might have to pull the carpet up on my T'all soon, but I don't want anything that would trap water next to the floorboards.

    I used Dynamat, topped with 1/4” Dynaliner in the foot wells (because my carpet set has 1/4” padding in those areas), and 1/2” Dynaliner elsewhere:

    Still waiting to test the results.

    It would be easier to remove than the spray/brush on stuff, that’s what I meant.

    Just curious..but if you used lizardskin , why would you want to remove it?...I used it inside and underneath my cab...sprays on just like bedliner...I ordered a rubber mat for mine and it can with 2 insulation layers..one is a fiber type, the other is a heavy rubbery tarlike pad...

    It’s like a heavy shingle, peel and stick. Press into place and use roller.

    I didn’t want trapped water either, I think it sealed pretty tight but I did spray with raptor under and regular brush on bed liner on the top side first:

    That's the stuff. I used it so my new A/C doesn't have to work as hard.

    One thing I neglected to take into account is that Dynaliner will change how a carpet set fits. Probably obvious to most of you, but it gained speed as it went over my head. I got lucky, though because the carpet fit perfectly, Dynaliner & all.

    Hey Ed for what it is worth, in both my 100 and 200 I just used the silver stuff from Lowes. Comes in a roll and is around $30. I did bed line my floors prior to that. Those trucks live inside so I am not worried about water sitting in floor pans. Just trimmed and put on the floor, weight of the carpet or rubber mat in the 200 holding it down and easy to remove if need be.

    i used daynamat or something similar in my 61 C10. Only thing I was told when I did it, was to use a butyl based product, and avoid asphalt based.

    Go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a couple boxes of their water heater wrap. It's basically the same stuff and it works great. Foil backed, self adhesive.

    You mean adhesive to stick it on?
