Rick... Whats the rule on these things...? And how much trouble will I get in legally... Just wanted to know before.
Thanks
Do you have a plan for mounting it? Also, do you have a high volume-pressure OBA?

Tank will most likely go under my toolbox or under my bed. Horns I want inside my ARB or under my frame tucked and protected. And yes it comes with a nice heavy duty valve. I upgraded to a 3/8 valve while I was at it.

I'll have to do some research in the code book and get back to you on it.

Thanks Rick, as always... you the man. I tried looking it up but could find nothing. I am sure theres some ticket for using it on public property within some certain distance of something or other.

And as a side note, I realize this may but somewhat immature to irritate the public and/or scare the living hell out of some people. However, its not like I am out shooting people and whatnot. (Just for the flamers.. lol) ;)

I'm sure you would get a sound violation for exceeding a db amount as train horns range from 120 dbs to 160 dbs. Travis use a CO2 with a large expansion tank that is what my buddy has on his 162lbs ship horns. They shake glass but they are awesome for people that cut you off.

Something like that. And yes people cutting me off will get their shit rocked.
I bought a complete kit that claims to be 152 Decibal. It comes with a 3 liter tank with a pump that pumps 120 psi. I wish I could afford that much C02... and ship horns? How big are those suckers?

They are big enough to take up half the under side of his bed. They are set at 150 Psi let off.

I take it you guys have seen the videos of the guy with the train horns in their car? They ride around and honk it at people coming out of stores and whatnot.. and some people on the side of the road.


My brother picked up a cheap horn from AutoZone that was supposed to be a 110db... but that thing was weak. Still sounded like a sissy horn.. but it was for his wifes mustang that had the horn stop working on it so no big deal.


Those kits I seen from the people mentioned above for a couple hundred bucks.. is this the same thing you got?


-edit- Do the 2000 year 4Runners have the same sissy horns? My old 2000 Tacoma had one I remember that... Glad they changed them!

I saw that. I watched alot of videos yesterday trying to get ideas where to mount it. If you can mount on in a civic and hide it, you can mount one in a 4x4 truck.
And one day I gotta upgrade to the ferry horns...
clicky for video
