New guy here. Put about 10 hours on my Viking. Love it minus the noise. Have my winch plate ordered. Tractor supply here has a 4500lb winch on sale for like $150. Heck for the price it got me interested. Then add the extended warranty. Anybody here ever dealt with there winches? I want be using it a lot just want it there for those uh o moments. Thanks

I have a champion 4500lb winch with remote control..which is what I think tractor supply carries.. I love it. I payed $155 for it a year ago and used it extensively for pulling logs and for plowing....when it dies.. I will buy another one.. I'm not one for triple the cost for name brand..

Same thoughts here. I have an off brand 1500 on my four wheeler and it had done me fine for the last 5 years. Think I will try it

Thanks. My dealer has me a bed may ordered. He said that helps a lot with the sound. Going to rhino line the bed this weekend. Heard that helps some too. May check into that sound dampening kit. Seems like everybody on here says it helps.

Simply put.. You NEED the sound dampening kit if noise is even a small issue for u... Cuts the sound by 75% IMO

Your Viking should have been fitted with the kit before you took delivery.

I was kind of wondering that. Even in a 14? Dealer made a comment about it but said it made everything a pain in the but to get to. He threw in a bed mat and said that would cut down on most the noise.
