    I'd like to get one of those steam whistles off a factory--maybe then those jerks with cell phones would hear me coming!--maybe a foghorn off a battleship would work!!. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Local big truck parts place has a triplet of air horns. Put a set on my friend's DuraMax. Supposedly not legal in KA b/c they're so loud. Can hear him ~3-4 industrial blocks away, DISTINCTIVELY!

    JCWhitney has abunch of random horns like that. train horns and big rig horns, and even an ocean liner horn, which would command some serious attention. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    Train horn! No way i know from expeirence that you'd need plugs or ear muffs. Maybe if you don't put as much air into them as locomotives do. HMM just stay away from anything that says 5 chime those are the louds ones, you know like hear for 10 miles . Some dude in a duramax had a loud loud horn at the lima and indy jambos not sure what kind

    It all comes down to how much you want to spend. Griot's Garage sells one that is supposed to be pretty decent and it's a self-contained unit. (no on board a/c) There are other websites that offer incredibly loud train horns that require the on-board a/c. If you already use on for tires and tools you might be half way there. The price range is about $40 to $400.

    i collected the parts over a year or so on E-bay (horns, switches, air tank, etc) and went with elec on-board. Primarily for air-mattress & camping stuff more than wheeling.
    Added air-horns to the setup easily!!!! Have a switch next to the air pump switch that adds the LOUD horn to the regular horn!
    Hey hear me now! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    This is the place where most companies get Air Horns. Napa should prob. carry this brand if not try a Truck dealer or junkyard.

    This Catalog should have the parts you are looking for. Just tell them you are looking for grover then give part # listed.
