    This is one of my few complaints about this truck. It's way too quiet and girly sounding. When I hear it I think "excuse me mister.... um... excuse me"
    I want it to sound like "GET THE HELL OUTTA THE WAY!"

    I find that with all new vehicles. I'd like to hit the junkyard and get a horn from an 80's pickup.

    He is out of town for the week. Last year I wired his horn to go off when he hit his left turn siganal. It was FUNNY AS SHIT!!! He couldnt figure out who was honking at him! He's gonna be expecting something this time, so Im gonna hook it up with a switch, and after he gets back, I'll chill for a week or two, then I'll pop by to say "Hi", and when I leave, I'll hit the switch. :D

    Did ya remove the baffle cover thing? I think it gets a little bit louder when ya remove that.

    Other than that...I had a set of Hella Supertone horns on my 96. They were pretty damn loud. Although, I wish they would've had a deeper tone.
