Tony (gcop) mounted his on the frame rail. Mine I mounted under my front end replacement but it's larger than most brush guards so that's not an option for most folks.

The correct term for these type of air horns is "Grover Stutter Tones." They are the traditional horns used on firetrucks and typically firetruck have a tank that's about 2-3 ft long and about 1 ft in diameter with a pump that i'm not sure what it's rated at. Definately an attention getter.

Horns

Thanks for the info , saw these horns on ther web site after you said what they are called. I also went to Texas horns .com and saw some nice complete install kits,have you seen these and if so what do you think, the studer horns say they need to be used on trucks with air brakes, Im guessing because of air supply,any help will be appreciated.

I have a friend that mounted 2 of those horns on his 3/4ton Cheby as well as a set of train horns and ran everything off a 3 or 5 gallon tank and a 200psi compressor. He had toggle switches to switch on the different horns. But those Stutter Tone Horns are insanely loud, but I prefer the Train Horns.

Have you looked at the round Stutter Tone instead of the Rectangular one, the round one doesn't need the air brakes: Grover Products
