    Ok I found a awesome thread about a month ago on installing a train horn with on board compressor and onboard air.

    My laptop crashed and I cannot find it now so if anyone can find it, you get reps


    I have searched I dont know if I just looked over it or what but it was like a pretty good detail in how he installed it then other members were asking if he could use the compressor for other things and he said yes.


    Thanks!

    (im still looking for it as well)

    Why would you want them on your truck anyways? The factory horn is plenty enough on the street. Unless you want to be like the other immature kids on youtube and drive around honking at people in parking lots.

    The Factory horn Sucks! Its like a horn from a ford fiesta! Dam Girls horn. I dont have a train horn but i have air horns that are much more louder than those stock piece of craps!:cool:

    Well how about you ask only instead of making a remark about immature kids since you are implying I might be a immature kid?

    Regardless of what your statement is, you know you were implying that statement.

    Secondly, many reasons.

    1) When I run code and you hear a siren and a air horn coming your way, your going to think firetruck and move.
    2) For jackass's who want to cut me off.
    3) For the trails in case I get lost, or someone else gets lost they can go towards the loud horn.

    Factory horn is not very good agreed.

    Exactly


    Haha harbor freight I get those tools for a one time use.

    I have only had one or two tools last awhile.
