Talk to the guy at Sound Deadening Materials for Noise Reduction from Second Skin he told me about vibrations and how to get rid of them. I did my whole rhino and it is much better. Bedliner material is not designed to get rid of vibration only protect you bed. They make a material to get rid of the vibration of your bed that worked great for me. This guy is very knowlegeable about noise reduction. I would call him.
Roughly how much would you say you spent on the liner for your rhino?

I realize this is an older thread but I made the same mistake as another member. I gOT 2" hose for intake and it was starving for air. Just replaced with 2.5" hose and it's perfect. I have a ryde on dust cover and some better insulation on the way for the cowl. This thread had been a big help for me. Thank you all!!

I did my snorkel over 3 years ago and it is still holding up after more than 4K miles. I am getting a little bit of backfire on decel which means it is a little lean on the pilot jet. I have already gone to a 22.5 and am going to up it to a25 to see if I can eliminate the bacfire on decel.

Don't know yet it will be here early next week. I'll post a review. I don't have a big problem with dust but I heard it blocks noise also.

I wanted to add I went with the tear resistant duct hose from mcmaster Carr. It had a high heat rating and was real thick so made a little easier since there is not much room. You also have to order in 5' sections. I ordered 10' and it seemed perfect. U could route it into grill or do like I did and turn it down away from the grill. I figured that way if I hit water it won't go in.

In heavy dust they don't work worth a ****, in light dust they work ok at best.

I'm also putting some sound absorbing foam under cowl when dust cover gets here for noise. I have rubber payed under seats now with rear window and with windshield up and I don't have dust problem.

The rear window prod helps with dust guard but the dust guard alone in my opinion doesn't work worth a ****.

im sure the snorkel helped a bunch huh. I am also ordering a ryde on cover and have done a way with the air inlet between the seats. I think this will make it quite enough for me.

Check out this place. Insulation from Aircraft Spruce

I used their products to insulate (sound and heat) the genset compartment and the engine doghouse on a mini winnie motor home. The stuff worked great. Total cost for both was around $150. Everything (glue, tape insulation) you need can be bought from them.

Just wanted to give my update. I installed the 1" sound and heat foam under console and ryde on dust guard. Huge improvement. Almost like riding in truck with windows down. The dust cover and rear window blocks out exhaust noise also. As far as dust I'll have to get back. Been under tropical storm here in Panama City so not much dust around.

U can snorkel it up and out I'm sure. From what I understand if u snorkel it to under the hood u can't get enough air for 660. But not sure.
