Also, liquid dampen the door panels and outside door skins. And polyfill in between the door panel and inner door skin. That should give you a nice door thud as well.
I had a lot of fiberglass insulation left over from a construction job. I pulled the trunk panels and stuffed every opening with insulation. I put a lot between the wheel wells and body panels. It made a big difference. Lot less road noise and potholes/rough roads are a lot less jarring. Nice thud when closing rear doors.

sa_pyro_ne i had the liquid eDead v3 stuff and it had a fruity kind of smell for a couple days, and that was just because there were 4-5 THICK layers on the floor pan of my ranger where your feet go. didn't smell that bad though.

FocusInCali Dynomat is still around, but they are too expensive and there are many other alternatives now. FatMat and Elemental Design offers both mat and liquid. PartsExpress offers a vinyl mat that I will use next, no asphalt. The liquid is an additional option. For example, mat for the main inner door skin, liquid for the outer door skin and inside the door panel. With the mat, liquid and sprays, there's not much you can't dampen today. It's great to have options.

sidney61199 FocusInCali, I guess your right. I thought that was just a link to the spray on stuff in the cans they were talking about and then the guy above my link mentioned the stuff in the gallon can you paint on. I was never much with the liquid stuff. When me and my friends were into systems in our cars they only used the mat stuff, they wouldn't touch the liquid stuff. A couple of them competed in sound competion's and the favorite then was the dynomat stuff. I don't even know if they make the dynomat stuff any more that was like 10 years ago.
