Quiet the Airdog down

What have guys been doing to quiet the in cab noise of lift pumps? I think if I pressed some rubber or something in the air dog mount it would quiet it done a bit. I had it sitting on the ground all hooked up and it was fairly quiet so I think its just the vibration transfering through the frame

I mounted it on the driver side frame rail right behind the front door

Thats about where mine is at, maybe closer to the back door but mine is very quiet. When the engine is running you cant hear it or even feel it running.

Ya i figured it would only take a few minutes to take the 3 bolts off to put something between the mount. When the smarty is programming the truck it really gets annoying. Not sure if its the norm, but it kicks on and off constantly for a minute or two of the programming time...

Definitely disappears when the cummins fires up

Yeah its normal for the pump to run and cycle during programming. I always just pull the fuse to the pump before I do any flashes.

That's weird because I installed one for a guy Saturday and it's extremely quiet. My raptor 150 is loud as all get out. I'm thinking about upgrading just for this reason and maybe go a little bigger.

I would have loved to pull the bed but I did it alone and I have a 5th wheel ball and a trailer hitch which I guess makes pulling the bed a PITA... So I dropped about 10 gallons of fuel

If I had it to redo- I would have started by taking my time and not busting the fuel return quick fitting but I would have also drained the tank close to empty with the stock lift pump into diesel jugs with the fuel line up front
