    new truck... No mods yet!
    I did the horn relocation to the left under the hood where the original bolts just go right on. First off, I had to modify the horn brackets to get them both in there. Now, the horn (obviously) isn't as loud in front of the truck, but it's certainly louder IN the truck and of course I get vibration when honking. So.... where and how did you relocate your horns? I'm looking for some direction on how to move them again. Also, anyone swap out the OEM horns for aftermarket ones? I've seen some with red outer rings on them. Thanks in advance for the help and suggestions!

    I'm going to do this mod, looks like the big aluminum bumper support {when you look down behind your grill} is where i'll put mine. Blasting right out the front of the truck, just like the factory intended.
