Coming to you straight from Avon Lake in the sunny state of Ohio, comes a fresh set of insulation kits and sound-deadening products from the masterminds at Design Engineering, Inc. (DEI).
Looking to give fans of retro General Motors pickup trucks the level of interior cabin love that they rightfully deserve, DEI has unloaded not one, but four new insulation and damping kits for squarebody GM pickup trucks. Custom-cut with the 1973-’87 Chevrolet/GMC regular-cab truck market in mind, DEI has renewed interest in turning heat and sound control issues into little more than an afterthought.
In Search Of Solutions For GM’s Squarebody Pickup
Squarebody GM pickup trucks have seen a sizable spike in prevalence in the past couple of decades, with the addition of LS and LT-swap options, further boosting their popularity.
Design Engineering, Inc. is leading the way with the most advanced thermal acoustic kits for vehicle-specific applications. Using a combination of our proven 2mm damping material and Under Carpet Lite, we offer an effective and affordable solution to unwanted heat and noise in easy-to-install, pre-cut, vehicle-specific kits. —Mike Buca, DEI Aftermarket Brand Manager
Since the addition of a high-horsepower engine swap results in increased levels of sound, heat, and tire-shredding animosity, DEI decided that kits tailor-made around these popular pickup truck platforms was a wise investment of resources. Keeping drivers and passengers cooler than your uncle in a fedora and a bowling shirt is the name of the game, and no one does it better than DEI.
Gaining The DEI Upper Hand
With its pre-cut, peel-and-stick construction, these insulation and sound-deadening “Damping Kits” from DEI are engineered to be as painless to install as possible, while not sacrificing performance in any form. Muffling unwanted engine and road noise while reducing vibrations is but one piece of the puzzle though. Doubling down and affixing a custom cut “Under Carpet Lite Floor Insulation Kit” is how you will notice the biggest benefits in cabin comfort and quietness.
GM squarebody owners will also appreciate how each piece of flooring material is CNC-cut for an ideal fit from any angle. Adding further value is the fact that each damping material and insulation kit comes with super straightforward installation instructions. Floors, doors, firewalls, and more, it’s all covered in DEI’s detailed instruction manual.
