Yes like said above you can use a heat insulating material in the cab floor, but to my mind, hat is only part of the problem. You need to reduce the heat getting to the floor.Folks,
We tow a tandem caravan and I was wondering if there is anything on the market like self adhesive heat refective material that I can stick under the body to reduce heat from the exhaust.

I did not have to screw it on just glued with silicone sealer and it has been there about five or six years no problems.A
If it's the Patrol cab getting hot, the only successful way to do it is either Dynamat or you can get heat reflective alluminium sheeting but you need to bend it & screw it to the chassis yourself & I don't know who sells it. I've only ever seen it once.
Bollocks, heaps of heat comes in the air vents if you do not have the air conditioning going, the ambient air is heated up as it comes through the box at the top of the firewall and into the car.Most heat transfer from the engine bay comes from down low through the footwell & slightly above the footwell on the firewall.
Yea OK that I agree, that is the go.Unless you cover the entire firewall & most of the footwell you won't achieve much.
Yes I have done that as well, but there is a silly black plastic thing directly over the fan intake and minimal clearance to insulate and still have adequate air flow.As a thought, has anyone thought of taking the grill off the top infront of the windscreen and lined it with the 6mm alli backed heat reflective gear?
