Default Loudest Air Horns?

I am looking for the Loudest air horns for my truck. The ones that come with the Ford are a joke. Anyone have any ideas?

Jon

I'm thinking one off of a locomotive would do.

I bought a pair of Hadleys. Kit comes with 2 horns, air pump and air tank, all the fittings and lines. I mounted the tank and pump in my tool box in the bed and actually just zip tied the horns to the frame under the truck. I forget where I ordered it from, but I'll check my CC statement. Very loud!!!!!

I second the Hadleys. These are true truck horns, with 120 psi compressor, not the little 20 psi ones that come with most horns. They sound great, too. I got mine from a GMC dealer. I think Camping World may also have them.

Not bad, not bad. You're giving me an honest effort, that much I can recognize. We need to work on a couple of things though. First thing, all of the tires on it match. Won't work. And you're teeth are to straight and too many.

I like where we're headed though.
