How did it go? Did you apply any inside them? I’ve done every part of the interior of the Jeep so far except for the doors which is tomorrow’s task.
I did finally get the panel off, but once I finally got it off i didn't actually roll any material on. I drew out a diagram on butcher paper because placement of the dynamat was odd and placed in pieces and i didn't want to create a lot weight on the doors. But I will prob take the panel off and roll some on once I get a good placement of the pieces. Did you make it work today?

Yessir, I placed eight 5x5 squares in a pattern inside driver and passenger. Gave it a nice thud sound when closing now and a lot less road vide projecting through to the inside.

So far I’ve used two 36sq ft boxes on this vehicle. Added about 50 lbs to total weight. It’s night and day difference driving down roads now. You can hear a pin drop on the carpet its so sealed up.

That's awesome, I will definitely do the doors then. Where else have you done?

Not to beat a dead horse here but could one of you guys tell me exactly how many screws have to be removed before you can pop the door panel off? I want to change mine it got scratched and bugs the sh*t out of me. I have the plastic trim removal tools. Thanks!

There is 5 screws. 2 at the bottom of the panel, 2 inside at the door pull, and 1 inside the door open handle under the cover.

Thanks. In the video as he counts the screws he ends up saying four despite clearly pointing to five. Kind of odd in an instructional video.

You should do the storage tub too, that thing has bad resonance. Or maybe just do the underside of it. It’s exposed under the vehicle.
