How to Soundproof a Jeep Grand Wagoneer
Do you have a Jeep Grand Wagoneer? If so, the main soundproofing you have are two small felt pads attached to the original carpets.
If you want to make a meaningful improvement to sound quality, reduce road noise and improve the sound of your stereo system, consider some or all of these methods to soundproof your Jeep.
You do not have to cover the whole Jeep in sound deadening material, but once you start it is hard not to do it. I did it because I was worried if I didn’t I might regret it later. BUT… from everything I read, covering the whole Jeep was not necessary to achieve the desired results.
Here is what I used:
I used Peel and Seal from Lowes as an aluminum covered vibration dampener. This helps to absorb vibrations.
- This would be a good choice too as it is thicker than peel and seal and it is designed to work with the closed cell foam.
- Closed Cell Foam to further reduce vibrations, but this works to help block and absorb sounds.
Now for the “knock test”. I tried my best to knock on the right rear Jeep fender with equal pressure so you can hopefully hear the difference. I think the phone picks it up okay, but there is a clear different in person.
Take a look…
Hopefully this video will give you the courage to pull the carpet and side panels out of you Jeep Grand Wagoneer to add soundproofing and sound deadening material. I am very please with the results.
