    I have Klienn train horns. I mounted the horns facing down in front of the radiator. The compressor is mounted to the frame under the truck. That works fine here in Arizona..not sure about you guys where it snows.

    I LOVE them. The horns alone are going for $250.00 on the net. They are not cheap but I have had them for 3 years and not one problem. The horns still look like new. Some things you can get away going the less expensive route....some things you cant.

    If you plan on keeping your truck for several years you might as well get train horns to last IMHO.

    I couldnt see them neither could the cops unless you crawled under the truck.
    Speaking from a Law Enforcement stand point. There is nothing that says that you cant have these, Now you might get something like disorderly conduct, or breach of peace. But they are going to have to know where they are coming from before they are going to start handing out paper.

    ntbush83.... I appreciate the advise about the cab hook up, I will definitely keep that in mind.

    I might have to take a look at Kleinn Horns, I am really wanting something that will last and when i get rid of my truck (not anytime soon) i can take them off and re-attach the whole set up again.

    Alright, Now im convinced that my ideas with work.... Now time the work on the Wife !!!
