    I can vouch for that..I have installed quite a few sq. ft. of dynamat in my day. The closest thing I can equate it to is tar with a layer of aluminum foil lol. It is not fun to try to remove.

    Trails are closed for the thaw so it's the best time to upgrade the Wolf.

    Luckly my wife enjoys driving as much as I and when she does I try to find where most of the cab noise is coming form. I believed most was coming from the the front floor panels and dash/firewall panes that seem to vibrate low frequencies from the engin. So I concentrated on placing waterproof sound deadening on those areas including laying some in the beams below the floor and wrapping the dash cavities. The dash cavity wasbactually up against the air intake pipe soe ai inserted extral foam between them. What difference for 32$ of sound proofing material.

    I wish I would've seen this thread when I had mine apart for upgrades. I may have to do this now.

    Anyone else done this or have it listed as a Winter project? After riding this past weekend with my 3 yr old, I'm finding that I NEED to do something to reduce the cab noise. I recently installed a windshield and a Yamaha rear windscreen and couldn't hear my little guy over the CVT whine and engine noise unless I stopped along the trail. I don't want the poor kid to end up with hearing loss.

    The roof does a lot to reflect the engine and CVT noise back into the cab. I found this out when we removed ours to increase visibility and reduce wind turbulence.

    That's good to know. Maybe some matting on the roof would quiet things down until I can get the rest of it done. Thanks for sharing that info.

    I installed a 1 cm thick foam sound dampening to the underside of the seat platforms and the entire console last week. I ordered enough material to do the foot wells and the front of the bed too but only half of my order showed up so that will be next. I ended up putting the machine all back together so I could ride over the Thanksgiving weekend. I am very pleased with the noise reduction in the cab from what I have installed so far. Definitely a great $30 upgrade but it took a long time to install.
