Air horn suggestion

Look for a LOUD under hood mount , electric powered air horn. 2003F250. If it matters.

Check out truck stops. Get you a good semi horn with a powerful compressor!

I used to have a old 84 F150 with 2 air horn's from Semi's that I bought at a junk yard for $50 total. Talk about LOUD. I scared quite a few people with that thing!

Your new system needs to have an air tank and an electric valve to turn on the horn.

System without the tank and valve suffer a delayed reaction.

I was thinking about the delay. But how involved would a tank system be to do?

I wish we had a good truck stop here. We do have a few truck supply places.

These are all they're reported to be and the price is right.

True air horn with no air tank required, and 139 db of resonant dissonance.

My install was single horn based, but I don't see why one couldn't just splice into an existing relay fed factory horn wire and run this along with the stock horns too.

Make sure you keep a new package of Froot of the Loom in your truck with you. Someone you honk at someday will appreciate it.

Here is an old link I had in my bookmarks. I always preferred K5La, but maybe because it is more popular.

Harbor Freight sells the WOLO "Bad Boy" and it's a close copy of the Stebel horns. These are two channel horns, one high pitched (way above C#) and one slightly lower that share the same compressor. I put one on a Suzuki Volusia cruiser to replace the weak oem horn. *NOTE* these aren't the big diesel truck type sounding horn, these are the Ferrari type horns, very high and very loud, impossible to ignore. Actually thought about adding a second one to make it even louder. The best thing is the size: very small, about 6" x 6" x 6".

Hmmm.. That might work for our golf cart we use on a construction site. They require us to have an amber strobe light, a backup beeper, and a horn. Almost everyone has a little "meep meep" type horn. I want to put something on there that will make people turn a look!

Reminds me of a dump truck I saw a couple of weeks ago that had a triple air-horn mounted below the driver door (on the battery box ?) which put it at most car's roof level or so. They were angled back too.... Made me wonder what the *legitimate* point was.

I believe this is why air horns are illegal in passenger vehicles in texas. They are meant for big rigs, not little toyotas or hondas.

I hear some A-Hole around where I live every now and then honking his. It sounds like a semi.

If he honked at me I believe my meds would fail and road rage would ensue.

I haven't heard him in a while.

This being Texas I would not be surprised to read his obit.
