    I was blowing my horn yesterday at some moronic driver on the road and he laughed at me. Here I got this nice big 2500 4x4 and a horn that sounds like a saturn or a mini. I dont even touch the horn due to it embrarasses me. I think I will rip it out and shoot it:gunsfiring: Any one have a womanly horn on their truck and know of a good upgrade and how much of a pain it is to put one in? Im thinkin about a real Dixie horn

    P.S did you see the video were the cop pulls the guys over because his taillight is out and the cop goes up front to check his headlights and the passenger blows the freaking train horn when the cop is in front of the car?I about crapped myself laughing.

    Anyone know of a good, rather inexpendive, deep sounding air horn (not roof mounted)?

    I have a '03 2500hd I bought used. I thought maybe something is wrong with my horn too. Most Domestic cars I've owned had a pair of horns. It sounds as if there is only 1. So I gather maybe my horn is working normal from reading this post.

    I installed dual 18" chrome trumpets behind the grill that run off an on board compressor. The whole kit was about $150 on EBAY. If you're looking to go a little less expensive then look at the bad boy made by Wolo. It looks like a stock horn but it's loud as hell.

    I have the siren/airhorn straight out of a cop car in my truck. The airhorn sounds like a firetruck and when you lay on the horn it realy gets your point across! Every truck I ever have will have this setup lol.
