Take the panel off under the steering wheel, then crawl under the dash on ur back look above the parking brake. They are wrapped in all 4 together with foil tape stating what they are for. I believe on page 115 it states the color codes for each switch. I installed my horns today. Works nicely with the switches, num 1 turns my normal horn control to the train horn. Num 2 turns my compressor on and off. I highly recommend using the switch for this and not having it run just because the truck is on. The system loses air pressure and the compressor kicks on every 5 minutes or so. I think I'm going to replace the hoses and fittings on mine with better quality ones. Enjoy ur horns I had a blast driving thru the park scaring the hell out of people.

Thanks!

hey pipeliner thanks for the help. my tank holds air pretty well and rarely comes without provoking it. I have the air fittings that they sent me with a little teflon tape.

How are you running the wires to the compressor?

i'm running horn blasters. In the instructions it tells you to install toggle switches that are provided in the kit. Instead of using the toggle switches, I used the uplifter switches.

Here is a picture of how I mounted my horns.

Do you mind me asking how you wired anything to the cab? I am still trying to figure out what is my best option WITHOUT drilling.

I just zip tied the wires to anything existing. There is enough crap on the truck to tie to you shouldn't need to drill holes until you mount the horns.

But where did you route the cables through to the cab? Through the window, firewall, etc?
