Default Exhaust Drone Reduction

Well guys I was successful in reducing the drone inside the cab of my 2010 QC Ram after the 14 inch magnaflow.

I put two layers of FATMAT sound deadening material on the rear cab behind the bench seat. I was shocked at how much it reduced the volume of the drone while in MDS mode. It isn't gone for sure, but cut the volume a lot.

Did you do the floor too? I was wondering if covering the bottom of the truck with a rhino liner type spray would work too.

I had done the floor previously when the stereo was installed. Had stock exhaust at the time so I didn't really notice a change in noise except the road noise in the truck got lower.
