Train Horns

Well the wife said I could get what ever we could afford for my birthday. I have decided on train horns. These to be exact. Shocker 232 Train Horn Kit

Now I have a few questions. Is that a good kit? How hard are they to install? And is the spare tire location the popular spot?

We put a horn blasters kit on my buddy's truck this past summer he bought from Raul. The install wasn't terribly bad but took some time to figure out where he wanted everything. The instructions that come with the kit aren't the best IMO. Be prepared to fab up a mount for the horns and possibly the compressor itself depending on where you mount it.

My horns wouldn't fit where the spare tire used to be. They would, but they could be seen from behind the truck so I mounted them to the bed spacer in front of the driver's side rear tire. I mounted the compressor in the toolbox

My compressor and horns are mounted to the frame on the pasenger side. They pump the frame but i put hose/rubber around one horn to keep it from vibrating.

i mounted my horns in between the transfer case and the fuel tank. i put a flat metal plate mounted to the frame rails and mounted the horns to that. the compressor and the tank on the drivers side frame rail

here are some pics


i have the horns facing the rear of the truck now cuz water and junk was getting in them


i drilled holes and mounted the compressor directly to the frame rail


i fabed up a couple smaller metal plater and mounter them to the bottom of the frame and then the tank on top of them
