Is adding sound deadening to the doors worth it

    In order to install new door handles, I need to remove the door panels. I figured while I have them off, Id add some sound deadening. Do you think this is worth it?

    Seems like everyone that does is happy they did.
    If stock stereo it may not have huge sound gains but should be a bit better.

    The reduction in road noise will be nice as well as the doors feeling a bit more robust when closing.

    How does one go about doing this and what is the average cost?

    Much of the material has an adhesive side to stick to the metal. Cost can vary. Haven't priced lately but a couple hundred should get the doors done. Same costs for roof, floor, and back of cab. Some have done these as well.

    There are several products out there that are different thicknesses at different costs.
    Here is one thread discussing it.

    Lots of info on YouTube as well

    I've used this as sound deadening and not too pricey.

    And used this when I want some heat insulation (floorboard above mufflers/cats for example but have also used on ATVs around fuel tanks just above exhaust and for leg heat shielding from exhaust). Again reasonable price and it works.

    Done all four doors and back panel, little better stereo, not so much sound deadening, much firmer doors.

    It's worth it just for the more solid feeling alone. You don't even need that much material too. 25% coverage will be 90% effective.

    I've always done it to my vehicles. Inner/outer door skin, firewall, floorboard, headliner and rear wall. I used raamaudio (no longer in business) back then, not sure what to use now. Well worth it for the sound deadening and the feel of the doors.

    SecondSkin is apparently really good and has a lot of options.

    I plan on using them when I do it to my Tundra.
