I have read several posts where people have used insulated carpet to decrease noise through the floor in driver and passenger area (versus using Dynamat Hood Liner underneath chassis).

I can't seem to find "insulated" carpet. Does anyone know what I can use and where I can get it?

I have worked in or around the carpet manufacturing industry for the last 20 years and am in the major carpet mills most every week for one thing or another so I am fairly familiar with carpet manufacturing.

But when it comes to your desired goal of sound insulation I dont think any of the current products that I know of will come anywhere near doing what dynamat or similar specific sound deadning products will do.

Most of the carpets can be had with a foam backing of various densities but that is still not the same. If you want to look at the foam backing I am talking about search for foam backing or dura back carpets. I would go with some sound deadning products though.

Just put the sound insulation sheets underneath the carpet. They do have sound insulation designed for this purpose. The most basic is just a tar paper like product which is what you will find under the carpets of many cars and it will be held down with what is basically an asphalt roof cement.

Here is a quote from the FAQ on Dynamats WEB Site.

"My floor board gets hot during long drives. Is there anything I can do?

A: Heat coming from a hot exhaust or headers is a common problem. Fortunately, Dynamic Control has a solution. First apply Dynamat Xtreme to the floor and firewall, then install Extremeliner, both underneath the floor's carpet. This process is outlined in Dynamat Floor Applications."

Ken and Arlean....Pull the carpet up and put in 1/2" foam padding used for carpet insulation in homes. It will work well, keep it quieter and cooler and is inexpensive.
