Air horns install

I nstalled air horns on my early 99. I want to operate them from the stock horn switch in the truck. I found the location of the horn but have some questions:
how in the world do you get to the connector or
where do the wires run into the fender.
I appreciate any suggestions or shortcuts to access the connector or the wiring harness. Thanks.

Not sure how to answer your question, but I want to see some pics once you get done, that sounds sweet, in more ways than one

I hid them behind my grill. You actually gotta look hard to see them.

quick question....does it matter if u mount the horns facing forward or backward..i mounted them backward to try to keep the road dirt and rain outta them for the most part..i think it would sound better facing the front though,i jus dont want the horns to get messed up prematurely i got mine next to the spare tire under the bed with the compressor and tank inside the tool box

If you have a quality set, it should not matter, we run them on all of our emergency vehicles facing the front, and we dont have any problems out of them.

Semi trucks face them forward. Usually with caps on them. Much louder without. I have had them freeze up in the winter with a heavy snow storm without the caps.

Sent you a PM as well.

I just installed air horns in Rodslingers truck this weekend.

First off the horn was hard to find, but I did locate it. I looked at the color wires that were going to it. One was yellow with a green stripe. I open the wire harness at the firewall and looked for that wire. Once found I spliced there
