lol...he hasn't posted it himself yet? wtf!???

i heard these on the phone....and i gotta say, JUST by what i've heard on the phone, i'll be swapping to them. I won't tell until he tells what they are out of.

No, not a semi truck. No, not a train.

Lol, I was j/k but yeah it's defiantly an improvement over stock.

Pretty soon I'm going to make my setup 200psi instead of 145 it's at now. I want louder.

It ain't impressive by any means but like I said before it definetly sounds better than stock. I would love to have one of those cruise ship horns but I would get myself in trouble with one.

Alright sorry i wasn't around all day to respond. But anyway.. The caddy 4 note horn you'll need the 4 horns n the 4 pig tails. U'll need to unplug the old horn n remove them from the truck since u won't be useing them anymore. Also remove your airbox, then pull the wiring harness for the horn out to where u can see the connecter and cut the connector off for your orginal horn. From their u're going 2 need to run 4 wires off of your orginal horns power and ground. Then Splice in your each of the caddy horn pig tails. That was just a ruff sum up i'll post a complete get up tomarrow with picture of how i wired it and where i mounted it.

Very Simple mod that makes a big diffrence beats the hell out of stock haha
