Two sets of Klien train horns 230 and 730, powered by two VIAIR 446 compressors into 17 gallons of air by the use of two 8-1/2 gallon tanks. Both units use large air intake filters for the compressors to ensure clean dry air & long compressor life.
Tru-Flate quick connects are at each tire so if there is any tire problems they can be plugged with on board commercial tire plug/repair kit and then aired back up with a 6’ coil hose in glove box wherever needed.
38" spare tire is not a option, this was next best thing w/ benefits.
All piping is Sch 40 1/2" brass piping through entire trucks air system.
Compressors use dual contactors for 4ga. power supplies. Asco full port brass body domestic 1/2” solenoid valves used for each set of train horns independently.
The train horn levels are @158 dB @30' in the Demon 730 set & 154dB on 230 set. Whats the dB level together: it’s exactly brutal dB’s.

Interior
2006 Ford CCSB Lariat F250 Interior 2006 Ford CCSB Lariat F250 Interior 2006 Ford CCSB Lariat F250 Interior
Approx 500-550lbs. of sound deadening materials in the truck with 400 sf GT-Mat and 100+ sf Dyna-Mat with either Dyna-Liner or 1" polyurethane foam rubber w/ MLV "Mass Loaded Vinyl" on top of CLD
1/2" of Jude sound proofing was used under all of the carpet as well
Stock Interiors Extreme Plush Carpet Kit also with the MLV 1/8" backing on it in the color is a light Gray

All 4 doors have been sound deadened inside with 1" poly foam rubber deadener over two layers of 115mil GT Mat on outer door skins.
Along with two layers of Dyna-Mat on the inside door skin as well as Dyna-Liner Over the top of that.
The door panels have 1” foam rubber on backside of all four doors for added measure.
Soundproofing is also above head liner also 2 layers Dyna-Mat w/Dyna-Liner on top.
The entire firewall is covered w/ 1/8” aluminized MLV over 1” Fiberglass insulation.
1" poly foam rubber on transmission tunnel plus two layers CLD on sheet metal floor of entire cab. Then again with 1/2" Closed Cell Foam Rubber w/ MLV and aluminum skinned facing under the cab itself.
The sound deadening was a game after a point and I went too far with it for sure. I don't recommend putting well over 500lbs of it in anything
I'm still fine tuning things today with CCF and MLV under the cab for improving on the sound control for the 2003 10 Vane turbo design.

dB meter was 76 dB at 70 MPH with stock interior
dB meter has 62 dB at 70 MPH after installing sound proofing

There is no engine noise in the cab since the sound deadening was installed with the exception of WOT inputs and tire spinning horseplay.
All and all with things combined the trucks improved interior sound levels and suspension upgrades it’s a entirely different experience for a old gray mayor.
Traveling at 75 mph really is a silent and smooth experience.
I occasionally have had people riding in the truck that think it’s a gas engine because you cannot hear any engine noise inside the truck. Damn Softheads.

7” Midranges & Tweeters in rear doors

Yes REAR DOORS. Was more work then you would imagine since the door lock linkages & bellcranks are exactly where woofers need to go. Power Window parts also must be moved around for things to fit. Then I had to extend the woofer 11/16” off door panels to clear magnets of window going by when rolled down.
Ford really pooched the dog here there’s no denying it. I’d love to put my boot in the A S S of the engineer that approved rear pillar speakers in 99-2007 F250’s

Frame has additional steel cross-member along with 3" channel with 1/2" plate steel for bracing backside of radius arm hangers and again back to another 3" channel inside the transmission cross-member. From the transmission cross-member its braced with 1" solid steel square stock at 45* angles back to the lower frame rails for added rigidity.
There is also a additional 4" channel cross-member behind the output shaft connected to the lower & upper frame rails. I added some 1" solid square stock thats used for additional stiffening and a mounting location for both air compressors.

The bracing improved handling of the truck in turns by firming up the frame in the front rails a bit like a truss which creates a bit more rigid frame.
The end result is a very solid chassis feel and truck tracks straight and doesn’t hunt around from flexing through high & low parts of road. Suspension takes on the road compression’s not the frame. Truck feels solid and more predictable to drive. But this added another 200+ lbs of steel to the truck.
Last time I had it on the scale truck was 8,870 lbs not sure what it is today, its gained a fair amount more weight since many more mods.
