Default Replacement pad/barrier that goes under the carpet.
While trying to install my speakers, I found the pad under the carpet soaking wet. I pulled it back and I don't think it rusted through luckily. I'll figure out what happened and fix it, but my question is...

The stuff that is ruined, the pad (looks like insulation of some sort) and some type of black vinyl, where do I find replacement for that? On LMC's website, I see sound deadener and heat shield materieal, but doesn't appear to be the same stuff by the looks of it (different color and materials)

I'm really OCD about things being "correct" so is this what I use to replace my old pad/barrier with?

I used two layers of dynomat. My original pad was roached from age and heat. The original pad does a great job at retaining moisture which can lead to rust. Once you have the carpeting down, no one will ever notice the difference.

I would just go with sound deadener, it quiets down road noises and tire noises. Check to make sure your heater core isn't leaking and dripping down onto the floor, if it's wet on the passenger side floor

Also check behind your kick panels, they love to rust through and allow water to drain into the cab from the cowl area
