    Here is a site that sells regular air horns and Locomotive air horns. They have a section that also has pics of where people install them. Most of them install the train horns under the bed because of the size. Here is a little clip of them playing around with the train horns.

    my buddy has one he ordered from JC whitney. it was small enough to mount on the inner wheel well in his engine compartment on his bronco. i would love to find one just like the one they use on semis... but i havent really had the time to look around for one.

    Look on ebay for some military air horns. They're not too big and they have a unique high pitched blast to them. The type they use on the M-35's are great. They use an electric solenoid to activate the air to the horn, but it's 24 volt. You would need to change it to a 12 volt solenoid, but that shouldn't be too hard to do.

    That's a damn good way to make sure your gonna get that ticket!!!!!

    My horns are mounted on the drivers side inner fender, almost the same as pvfjr's. Tank is mounted to the frame rail under the passengers seat.
