Train horn for ford raptor,woodland animals vector,british model railway scales - Try Out

Well after seeing some other peoples installations of train horns on their truck I wasn't really too impressed with how they were in plain sight and drew a lot of attention. After I drilled those four holes I marked and drilled the holes to mount the horns themselves. Now I mounted the horns to the sheet, there are bolts built into the horns so it is very easy. Now take off all the fittings and apply Teflon tape or your choice of thread sealant (I used white silicone).
Now plan out where you want the airline to go and then route it away from the horns towards the front of the truck to get it out of the way for now. Now with that out of the way you need to determine where you are going to mount your valve, tank, and compressor. Now to connect the wires and airline to everything else I drilled a hole in the bed just under the factory left tie down hook and ran my air line and wires through it. I could not locate the horn trigger wire under the dash so I used a wire tap on the positive wire at the horns. Put it on my relay and now I have two hella super tones behind the grill that also work with the two stock horns. I looked around online and found these which I knew could easily be kept out of sight unlike the big triple chime chrome ones (no offense to anyone with those). I didn't want a huge tank that took up a lot of room nor did I need the long honking times of one so I went with the cheaper 2 gallon combo. I don't have a spare tire so where the old tire used to be is the perfect spot to mount it in my opinion.


I got it all centered (no cutting required) and then held the piece up with some locking pliers and then used a center punch to mark the spots where I am going to drill. Make sure to cut the access of the bolts off of the small bolts that are at the front of the horns, otherwise they will hit the spare tire mount and you wont be able to bolt the sheet down fully.
Connect all the airlines too, and remember not to over tighten anything because they are all brass. Now have someone hold the sheet with the horns bolted to it and use bolts with nylon lock nuts to hold the sheet up.
I did not want to mount any of those under the truck so I opted to buy a cheap box for now until I can afford an aluminum one. During the time of the picture it was being held in place with a tie down, but it is screwed to the bed now. Don't forgot to use a wire loom on the wires and line so you don't risk chaffing anything on it and causing a short or air leak. The included wire has an inline fuse built in already but if you are using your own wire DON'T FORGET TO USE ONE AND MOUNT IT AS CLOSE TO THE POWER POINT AS POSSIBLE. I do not recommend putting them in the same spot as I did if you are using the same style switches because it requires a lot of work to get them to fit. With them installed the way this tutorial shows you can only see them if you get on your hands and knees and look under the truck. I spoke with the very friendly and knowledgeable owner named Matt on the phone and ordered up my kit. Make sure you measure and test fit the horns with supplied the 90* fittings on the end so that you will be able to bolt the sheet down without any clearance issues.


I mounted the horns facing backwards so that I don't risk water or other contaminates like mud getting in the horns and causing problems. I drilled two small holes in the steel sheet so that I could mount my splitter with a zip-tie. The right switch toggles between stock horns+train horns and stock horns alone if you leave the stock horns connected. The compressor will only kick on when the tank is below 110psi and the accessory line has power and with the toggle switch engaged. The install is very easy and does not take very much knowledge or mechanical skills to complete. Now with the included hardware I bolted the tank to the box, I found a small pair of scews and lock nuts and mounted the valve too. Be sure to run all wires and airline inside the frame rail and use zip-ties to keep it all from moving.
The left switch is the power to the compressor if the pressure switch kicks the compressor on.
The horns will only work with the toggle switch engaged and when you press the factory horn button. Be sure to keep the switch in the off position when not using the horn, pressing the lock button twice or the panic button will make the train horns honk if the switch is engaged.
