I have triples hiding behind the front bumper. They're powered by my 150 psi Viair on-board air system. The factory electric horn is still the primary, airhorns being auxiliary, so it keeps me legal here.

*You PA guys can imagine the air horns are useful when towing on the Schuylkill Expressway.
Also they have saved us from at least one collision for certain. As we were getting on the Interstate, a car load of young ladies were ahead to my left as I entered the merge. The driver began to swerve right into my lane, so I laid on the triples. She pulled back over to her lane and dropped back, way back. Never saw them again. There's no doubt she would of turned right into the left front end of my truck if it wasn't for the horns.

Easy to install. Not a train horn, but it does get everyone's attention.

You can add it to your existing horns.
I had one. It was useless. Don't waste your money.

I've had them on my motorcycle and truck. They work fine. I had one break and WOLO replaced it. You do need to blow it occasionally, to keep the reeds inside from sticking.

We called it the Sure Kill when I grew up in the area!

A coworker of mine has a semi truck horn on his truck. He honked at me and scared the crap out of me... I think my heart skipped a beat.

But I wish I had this a few times. Some special idiot on their phone almost swiped me, twice, in a work zone with Jersey barriers on my right, no where to go, while towing. Honking didn't do anything, she didn't even look up and move back in her lane. Probably didn't her it, she had headphones on.

Speaking of, that cell phone BS is starting to drive me insane. The majority of the drivers around here hold their phones in their face while driving. I've seen some watching videos, texting, facebook, even video calls while driving. Everyday I have to honk at people when the light turns green. I gave up on the courtesy 2 short beeps to get them going. Now I just lay on it.

Yea, now that I think about it, I might consider installing one on my truck.

I’m sold!!!!!!!! Just have to sneak them into the truck. Wifey thinks I’m being immature. Not sure what that exactly is but I assume it is what old people do. She’ll figure it out first time someone cuts her off.

Used to have a PA in my car growing up. It was not as loud as a train horn but still lots of fun. My favorite was moooing at the passing joggers.
