hi harjeev,
Nice progress man, i love the rubicon project too. What is the material that you are using for sound proofing? Which are the best materials avaiable?

I have seen a thick cloth type on bolero's and it makes a difference. Can any body tell me where do i find this?

Actually they have to be done side by side as I definitely need the jeep for a next weekend trip.
If I am not able to get it by next weekend, then I wlll keep your suggestion in mind. Thanks

Hi Arka
I dont have the exact specifications, but yes I think that it should be the same that come preinstalled in the rear diff.
The Free Wheeling Hubs were already there. Apart from that I will be adding power steering to the vehicle. Apart from this, no changes at present.

Thanks vinod.
I do not know the name of this material, but I am told that this combination of padding along with the metal foil very effectively reduces the heat as well as the sound of the engine to the cabin.
Regarding the bolero material I wouldn't know about that, but I think testdrive has put that in his 550. Try PMing him.

Thanks Randeep. I should have my jeep by the end of next week.

Regarding the Rubicon, MAN MAN MAN!!!
I am not exaggerating when I say that you have to see the RUBICON in person to know how huge this thing actually is!!! The pics dont even depict half of what it actually is and dont do justice to the workmanship gone into it.

BTW are you coming to this weeks OTR's

This material will provide you with excellent heat insulation but will not be that effective for sound proofing. For sound proofing best thing is carpet.

Please explain how does a bog standard piece of carpet provide better sound proofing than the honeycomb structured material that Harjeev plans to use ?

If it does then I am sure Harjeev can put a piece of carpet on top of the insulating material.

If you are using something to insulate against heat then it should be fire retardant. I doubt a piece of carpet would function well in this department.

Can jeep experts here comment on this? As i have seen many MM540's cabin getting hot. tips on heat insulation and sound insulation will greatly help!!

To cut down noise you have the option of either absorbing it or blocking it. While that sheet will block it to some extent the best bet is to absorb it. Carpets excel in this. If you look into bolero's hood it has carpet on all surfaces inside the engine compartment. The difference in noise level inside the cabin and outside next to engine is amazing. For vibrations and sound travelling through metal, neither will work. For that you need to cover the floor with thick resin kind of material which should stick with the metal, not letting it vibrate. You can find a similar thing on your car floor below the carpet.

Hey Guys
I was at the workshop at on Monday and looks likely that I will get the jeep by this weekend.
There was a bummer though, I had to let go the front LSD's for now as some modifications need to be done in the front axles. So its the old setup for now and will get the front LSD's some time later.
The engine, gearbox has been mounted on the chassis.
The under body has been coated with anti rust and then painted army green.

So I think that I should have get the possession of my jeep in a couple days.
The job remaining are the electrical (complete re-wiring), power steering & body paint.
