let's see your air horns and compressor mounting spots

hey guys so the wife let me order my airhorns tonight....I went to hornblasters and bought the shocker classic 228VX train horn kit, it has 4 horns, compressor, tank, and all lines....I got it for 349.99 shipped to the house....Im just looking to see where you guys mounted the horns and compressors( I'll be running my spare tire in the STOCK location, if I can....( it's a 37x13.5x24 toyo on a 24x12 rockstar....hopefully it will fit, I don't want it taking up bed space.

I have the horn kit that can be individually mounted or mounted all in one big group....Im thinking about mounting two on each side of the frame, but don't know where to mount the compressor and tank and lookin for ideas....please post up how you've mounted your horns and everything for the kits....

Chad

here's a link to the kit I ordered, can anyone tell me about it and if it's any good, I really hope it is.

Im doing mine as we speak. I got my horn from airhorns of texas. Its the fire emergency horn. I have the compressor mounted to the frame under the passenger door. I plan to mount the tank right next to it, but it might need to be welded because the type of brackets it is. I also plan on using it for an onboard air system too, so that might make it a little more complicated.
Sorry but I dont have pics yet just cause Ive been so busy lately.

Also I only have one horn whereas you have 4.

Im a little late to the party but ill throw my 2 cents in too.

Ignore all the other stuff, my horns were there first. they are just behind the trans cross member on the pass side.


The tank is right in front of the rear leaf mount. I have a 3 gal tank and I also put a fitting on there to hook a hose to for filling tires, moving oil and other things.



My compressor is behind the back seatwrapped in foam to help keep the noise down. I have a second compressor in the tool box in the bed.

Air is one of those things you dont think you need, but once you have it, you wonder how you lived without it! I also have the incab controller for my airbags. Its nice to air them up and down on the fly as you are driving down the road!

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

Heres a few pics on my installation. It was only necessary to drill one 1/4 in hole in the pinch weld. Everything else was mounted using the factory drilled holes. PICS HERE I don't have a photos of it, but the compressor is covered with a plastic battery box, and the filter was relocated.
