Hi everyone
I purchased new bedbug carpet for my Jeep. Before I install it I wanted to install a heat reduction product.
I was looking at the Eastwood products and lizard skin etc..
I do not want to do a bed liner .... I don't like anything permanent..
Peel and stick would be my preference.
Any suggestions?
Thanks
Adam

I used a heat shield product from Summit racing. It came in sheets easily cut to fit when needed and has an adhesive backing. I lined the underneath of my bedrug carpet tranny tunnel and into the foot wells. Works great!

I have a post somewhere on this board with a link to the stuff that I used, and it worked great.

Hey guys attached are some photos of the Noico 80 mil that I put down in my Jeep.
I would recommend getting a good wood roller instead of the rubber. The wooden one I had worked much better than the rubber roller.
I do not have before or after decibel readings but I do recall one of the reviews on Amazon includes those.
Thanks for the recommendation Chris...
This was easy to work with and half the price of Dynamat.

Rather than pay big $$$ for foil backed insulation made for automotive use, check out the foil backed roofing insulation sold in your local Home Depot. Pretty much the same thing if you can find what I saw.

Peel & Seal is sold at Lowe's and Home Depot, and works great. In fact, that's what I just did this weekend on my wife's Mazda before installing the new carpet. Took two rolls of it, and cost about $30. I've used it in the past, and recommend it. Same stuff Jerry is referring to, I believe.

Looks like both types will work however automotive grade has a pleated aluminum that will be better for reducing radiant heat
I guess he did ask for "best product", which this probably isn't. But for the cost difference, I like Peel & Seal just fine. I did the floor, ceiling, and rear quarter panels of a Ford wagon for $45. The Dynamat was north of $300 for the same coverage. The choice was easy for me, because I'm cheap like that... ;)

This product was fairly inexpensive. One box will be more than sufficient
If your going to take the time to do this I would rather use a product that is specifically made for automotive use. 425 positive reviews on Amazon does not hurt either...

That stuff doesn't look to have a butyl rubber layer or a very thick one if it does, though.

It's a tar-like substance, for lack of a better description. I had a friend give me some leftover sound deadener/heat insulation that was strictly an automotive application that was the same stuff, only slightly thicker. Also cost him $85 for a single roll. The Peel &Seal goes on nice, forms well, and with a touch of heat from a heat gun, is on there for the duration. Rather important when doing the inside of the roof panel. It turned my wagon from an echo chamber into a pleasant ride, that's for certain. I will continue to use it in my rigs.

How will those peel and seal products hold up to moisture? Is it horrible to remove later down the line?

I would not think that moisture would be an issue any more than it would be with any of the other products. If moisture gets in, it will be from an opening along the edge, covering over an air gap created by a valley or indentation that you did not form the material down into, same as the other products. It will not penetrate through the aluminum and tar. This is actually a product used for roofing repairs ("Waterproof Repairs" right on the label). As for removing it, if you use a heat gun like I did to increase the adhesion, it's on there!

I prefer the butyl rubber like dynamat. I haven't seen any good long term reviews of asphalt products. The stuff with holes from amazon is interesting. Much thicker so the mass may work to keep the vibrations down.

CSI 25070 THAT product will hold up to heat in the cabin? its made for itt.. have any ideas? I am waiting for my new exhaust system to be built and rn in California its getting up to 100 degrees, while I'm an idiot I installed an exhaust cutout valve that using so much caused the valve to leak and not fully close also causing the heat. My cabin is 135 degrees with the window close no ac . Its literally hell
