    You have any pictures of the install?

    i was wondering about when people install the compressor or tank under the bed, what about corrosion? I live in the north east and we have tons of corrosion problems from salt/snow in the winter and potholes full of skunk water in the summer.

    do you have it mounted under the bed?

    I love train horns. There are times when they are truly needed to get someones attention.
    I installed a similar setup a few weeks ago for a customer. It was a crew cab F250 and I mounted the tank and compressor behind his back seat. If you get a good compressor, they really don't make alot of noise, and they can fill the tank relatively quickly so they are not on long. I believe his filled a 2.5 gal tank in about 30 seconds to 85psi for a quad-horn. Blows loud for about 8 seconds before it really begins to fade. With the radio on (and not loud) I could not hear the compressor.
    Not a big fan of mounting a compressor under a truck. Dirt and dirty air will shorten the life of a small compressor, even if it does have a filter.
    Cool vid! Glad I wasn't in the tunnel when it blew. Lol

    Oh yes i just love train horns, i got one on my F250 and had one on my previous truck as well, probably not going to put one on my wifes TACO but who knows, where do you have yours set up at, where the spare tire supposed to be? I have a lot of friends that have it where the spare tire supposed to be, only thing shitty about that is NO SPARE TIRE. My F250 has it where the spare tire supposed to be but then again i dont have a spare tire cause i got big tires on it...
