    I'm getting three selenium horns on the extirior of my 2005 tacoma. I was thinking about putting them right behind the front bumper but then there's nothing really stopping anyone from stealing them. Where's a good place to put them on the outside thats safe?

    Are you wanting to mount these outside your truck so you can blare music for everyone else to hear as you drive by?

    I will not help you in any way accomplish this. Don't be stupid. You'll get a ticket for this.

    So you can bother everyone around you with your music while going down the street?

    Wait a minute. are you asking about mounting a "train horn" kit? There's a guy that lives around here that's got them on a Dodge Ram and they're stupid if you live in the city but if you live in the middle of nowhere I could see how they would be kinda fun to play around with. That seems like something that should be put on a 2500 or some other big diesel truck not a midsize truck but if it floats your boat go for it.

    Oh and to the guy bashing the Dixie Horn I'm seriously thinking about getting one of those now:D but as a second horn to play with when I'm not in town

    I guess I should've figured out you were serious but I didn't notice you were from Nebraska til just now. I'm wondering where I could mount these though on a 1st gen regular cab where they wouldn't be visible or get beat to hell. Do you know anybody that has a set of these? I'm kinda skeptical about sound quality with plastic horns.

    Haha! That's awesome! No, no ideas on placement or sound quality.
