The engine compartment insulation, under the bed on the driver's side, needs to be replaced. Is this something that must be purchased from WRV or can it be purchased elsewhere? The piece I removed is 5' x 16".

On my trip to Nashville this summer I noticed two of the screws with the large washers had fallen out causing the insulation to flap in the wind. I tried my best to fix with duct tape but it didn't hold and it just self destructed.

Lindenberg,
My best guess would be that you can buy the insulation from a truck parts supplier; maybe even Lowes or Home Depot. A call to WRV should determine the type and thickness, or take an old piece along for a sample. Be sure to get all those fender washers/screws in place to hold it intact.
