Well Ive been wanting to install my shocker horns from hornblasters on my truck for awhile and just never had time. I finally started working on them awhile back and got them mounted up! I had them on my old truck so I wasnt as excited to get them up and running again as I was when I first bought them. If you have never heard these horns they are freaking LOUD!! I have everything hooked up and ready to rock except my airline that goes to the horns was too short so I have to order some more. But anyways onto the pics.
On my GMC I had, I had put the 5 gallon air tank and compressor in a tool box that I had on the truck. It was simple to do and out of sight, but on this truck I didnt want a tool box so I figured id mount the tank and air compressor all up under the truck. It worked out great!
Here is the tank mounted. It is mounted next to the fuel tank on the drivers side. The spot was damn near perfect for the tank, and i used 1/8 inch thick angle iron to mount it to the frame rail.
For the compressor I wasnt really sure where to go with iit. I finally decided to go straight across from the air tank on the passenger side frame rail, worked out awesome too, once I get some more air line im going to run the filter up into a better spot but for now thats where its at. The compressor is also hooked up to one of my upfitter switches to turn on and off as I want.
here it is with the exhaust back in place
I then ran the air line from the tank to the back of the truck. I wanted to be able to air up tires and crap also, so I used a T fitting and placed it in the line and T'd off to hook up a quick disconnect. you can see in this picture the solenoid for the horns as well as the T i used to get the air to the quick connect.
I didnt want the connect to be seen but still wanted to be able to hook upto it easy, so I used an existing hole in the frame and ran it there. This is under the driver side back by the bumper
Then i mounted the horns on a piece of angle as well, and bolted it up to where the spare tire once was.
Im hoping to buy a set of K3LA horns and replace these shocker horns with those, but its hard to find a used set for a good price! And im not paying $900+ for a new set of K3LA's! If anyone has a set for sale, hit me up!
