I've got one from Pep Boys... it's not the loudest... or most obnoxious one in the world... but for the $25 it cost me I'm pleased.

Was it just a replacement for the stock one? How easy was the install? I'm tired of my puny horn.

It was easy to install....

unhook stock horn... splice wires in to airhorn compressor... mount compressor in a subtle location... run air hose to horn... replace horn fuse with a 20amp...

it's a little "rigged" setup... if you know what I mean... but it's an improvement over the cheap-ass stocker that caused me to get rear ended b/c it wasn't loud enough... people move out of the way now... and it looks really nice under the hood too...

Where did you mount the compressor? How much was the total cost? I know you didn't get the horn AND compressor for $25, right?

You could probably mount the compressor in the drivers side front bumper. Plenty of space there and if I'm correct on the LS and LT that's where the stock horn is

See that one silver nut on top of the radiator support? (by the washer tube) the compressor is mounted up under the support... it tucks in nicely...

Wolo also makes nice air horns. They are the people who make the musical ones such as Dixie, La Cucaracha, etc. I had the Dixie one on my truck and it was loud as hell. They also have what they refer to as the "Train Horn". I've only seen it on huge diesels, and it is definitely not lacking in volume. It earns its name.
