Those classic lines of GM’s 1988 through 1998 pickups have been a favorite of workmen, enthusiasts, collectors, and hot rodders since the General introduced the C/K line of pickups to the public. Modern examples of this generation of GM’s heavy haulers are ripe for picking by those looking for a later-model pickup with classic lines. The fact that these beauties were so prevalent back in the day and everyone had exposure to them when they were new, helps to fuel the enthusiasm of those looking for a plaything with some room to haul a few things when necessary.
Design Engineering Inc. is a company that wants your ride to be as comfortable as possible. To accomplish this, they offer several effective heat and noise-reducing kits for many cars, as well as the regular cab variants of these haulers. Now, they have just announced a line of custom-shaped insulation kits that are CNC-cut for a precise fit and easy installation in those extended cab pickups as well.
“Pre-cut interior insulation kits ensure the correct material to cover specific interior areas including floors, firewalls, headliners, and more,” says Mike Buca of DEI. “Everyone knows how popular these older pickups are with consumers, and now DEI is making the ride even more enjoyable.”
By combining DEI’s proven 2mm damping material with its Under Carpet Lite insulating material, enthusiasts have a convenient way to not only block out any exterior heat from the cabin of their extended-cab trucks, but will also enjoy significantly reduced road, tire, and engine noise. The damping material works wonders at reducing noise and vibration and the insulation layers upon that make an effective barrier to heat and noise. Enthusiasts who wish to shroud themselves with superior thermal protection can opt to include DEI’s roof-specific offerings, protecting them from the heat below and above.
