It's called thermo shield amazingly enough....drove it to the alignment shop and the public scale and the engine cover was slightly warm but not near as hot as before....

I traded my Ford for a Chevy. Lot more leg room and no hot floor or dog house. Other than that I loved the Ford e450.

Ray in Ok,

I followed your lead on the dog house insulation. Finished yesterday.
I drilled out the rivets holding the 2 guide brackets and got them out of the way and then removed the OEM insulation. Cleaned the underside of the cover then installed Thermo Tec thermal/acoustics shield (The Suppressor).

I then reinstalled the OEM insulation over the Thermo Tec and held it in place using a spray/heat rated adhesive between the two insulations. Installed new pop rivets to the guide brackets and reinstalled the cover in the cab. Seems very solid but I'll know more when I get it on the road.

Might have to take it across the state to Ft Meyers next week since we don't have a Camping World on the s/e coast of FL and I'm negotiating to have levelers installed.

That's great! We just drove 500 miles and the wife didn't burn her feet at all and it was much quieter!!! Temps in these part are all in the mid to high 90's!

Been following your posts, and also went with the Cool It Suppressor on our 2012 Lexi. Newer doghouse with a one piece oe shield that popped right out. Bought the 60" x 36" and suprisingly had a piece 27" x 36" left over. Looks to be just enough to cover driver and passenger floor area.
First pic is the Cool It installed, second is with gasket and oe shield back in place over the Cool It.

Yep other than being a different kind of insulation we did the same..
I liked the heat shield quality of the OEM stuff seemed pretty thick.
We just did a little over a thousand miles round trip. The wife kept checking and said the doghouse was only mildly warm.
