popular thing to do is put the spare tire in the bed, get a piece of sheet metal and put them on there facing forwards, I have seen a civic that did somewhat of the same thing. I kinda want some now, but i also want an exhaust... tw... 38r... bts vb... I want a lot of things

If I were to get train horns, I would face them out the driver's side of the truck so when you have to pass dumba$$ left lane riders on the right, you can scare the he!! out of them before you cut them off and roll coal on them

I have put a few sets on different trucks and I think the best place to mount them is on the tool box either between the bed and the tool box on either side or on the bottom of the tool box. This way you you run less air lines and the horn have better protection from the elements and road grime.
