If you own a ’67 through ’72 C10, ’73 to ’87 squarebody, or an ’88-’98 OBS extended cab Chevy, listen up, because it’s time to say goodbye to spirit-crushing cabin temps and obnoxious road noise.
Design Engineering, Inc. (DEI) has done it again, this time at PRI 2021, where we caught up with the Ohio-based brand to discuss its all-new line of pre-cut insulation and damping kits for GM C/K trucks from 1967 to 1998.
At this point, most people are quite familiar with (DEI) and its various DIY thermal engine protection and sound damping solutions — the latter of which we are focusing upon today.
By combining the company’s Under Carpet Lite with a specialized 2mm damping material, DEI has created an extremely effective and affordable solution for those looking to eliminate unwanted heat and noise from their vehicle’s cabin. An easy, pre-cut design makes installation a snap, and allows Chevy C/K pickup truck owners the chance to finally get in on the benefits associated with this proven remedy.
Each Chevy C/K pickup truck heat and sound damping kit includes material for covering areas like floors, firewalls, headliners, trunks, door panels, and more. By using the right amount of material in the appropriate place, things like road and engine vibrations, as well as heat from the engine, transmission, and undercarriage exhaust systems are all drastically reduced.
Every one of these kits comes CNC cut from the DEI factory for immaculate fitment and effortless installation, and is accompanied by a fully illustrated set of instructions, which shows where each custom cut piece of material should be positioned, and why.
For instance, the “Boom Mat” side of these kits removes unpleasant engine and road noise, muffling vibrations with a simple peel-and-stick solution. Meanwhile, “Under Carpet Lite” serves as a heat and noise barrier, while the “D-Mat Layer” provides areas like firewalls and headliners with an additional layer of insulation against the elements.
A copy of DEI’s latest and greatest product portfolio is available for download here at the Design Engineering, Inc. website, where, on page 44, you will find both the new GM C/K heat and sound kits, along with a slew of other unique new offerings.
