Default PA horn

I'm putting a PA horn in my truck and connecting it to my CB. Where do you guys suggest mounting it so it can be herd well but not easily seen.

I attached mine to the plastic shield that is under the radiator. It is on the driver side.

I painted it black and you could not see it at all

I will try to find pictures.

Mine is behind my license plate right now...I need to put it somewhere else though since the plate blocks a lot of sound. Just zip tied to the bumper.

Hmm, liking that spot. Did you just drill into your rad shroud to mount it there?

Ya drilled holes then used some bolts and nuts

Held up very well.

I need a new spot for it now that I have the Skid plate and took that part off.


You could actually see it from the front of the truck if you knew what you were looking for. It hung down maybe 3/4" lower than the bumper.

Well if you don't run a license plate, check right behind the hole in the valance. Yours is black so it won't stand out too bad.

I may have to look in to that this weekend. I have the black street scene so it would help hide it.
