OK...here's the video. This is the Hushpower muffler/silencer along with the soundproofing modifications from Super Soundproofing. It's not a golf cart type quiet, but it's a HUGE improvement! If you think your Viking is too loud...you need to do this! IT WORKS!


Here's the link to a detailed install with all of the contact info... http://www.vikingforum.org/forum/ya...38-how-make-your-viking-much-quieter-diy.html

Here's a link to some mounting brackets that will make mounting the silencer a snap. (your muffler shop may already have these)

Thanks guys...just a side note. I just did a drive by at 40mph and, at that speed, the tires are louder than the Viking. Like I said before...I am MORE than happy with it!

It is amazing the difference that the soundproofing makes. How do you think it would hold up in the mud and snow.

All of that foam is waterproof, and everything in and around the seats is pretty much covered up. The guy at the soundproofing place said they use the same foam to insulate air conditioner lines up on roof tops...so I'm thinking it will hold up well. He said just to hose it off when it gets dirty.

Awesome. This definitely may be on the list. My windows helped and bed mat. But this would really help.

Just to be clear...I have the bed mat, a spray on Rhino lining, the Hushpower muffler and the soundproofing material. All of this had some part in quieting it down. However, I'm sure the muffler and soundproofing had more to do with it than anything. My next step is an OEM rear window, and I'll bet that helps even more.

MnT,
The long piece of 2" foam running on the back of the seats layered above the bedliner, is that one piece or 2-3 pieces? When laying out all the foam, where would you try and make the largest cuts so they are continuous? My worry is some of that will dislodge during driving and fall out?
