    hey, I used to have a train horn on my 04 silverado. I bought it from ebay for around $300. It was 132 decibles, and a little louder than a the horns on a train, it was pretty sweet, watch ebay, they have some pretty good deals, but also some pretty good scams, make sure you read the reviews of the sellers

    i have a train horn in my truck! i have a 5 gallon tank with a 100% duty compressor which will do anything you will ever want.. will run air power tools all day... i paid $300 for everything shipped to my door. i dont know if your looking for a tank this big but i would also not go with a 1 or 2 gallon.. they run out of air too quickly.. the smallest i would go with is a 3 gallon. i have 4 horns.. you also notice in my video below that its mounted under my hood i would not do so.. i would mount it under your truck. It is a lot louder with the hood up. dont get me wrong its very loud with the hood down and you'll scare the living **** outta people but i want to move mine to under my truck. here's my video and ill look for the page i got it off of for you and post another reply
