Look up Wolo, here is a link WOLO MFG. CORP. VEHICLE HORNS, WARNING LIGHTS & ACCESSORIES

They have horns around $50 and they have sound clips so you can hear what they sound like too, just the tone not actual loudness, they do list db ratings tho

What ever it is, it sucks!

The factory horn is just Sad for a truck,,,,, Air's kinda the way to go, when siege engineering was selling on eBay you could get some really good deals in auction. Those small, air compressors with the plastic horns don't work or sound well.

For a budget, go electric, maybe 2 or 3 (they come in sets) Hi/Low or even the old caddy "4-note", 4 horns sound real authoritative Maybe the best deals can be found at the bone yard....
