Yeah when I picked my friend up the night I got my truck he said to honk my horn, and since I was yet to hear it myself I said sure. He laughed and I was disapointed. True story.

very weak for a truck horn, had a lady pull right out in front of me yesterday, had to lock my brakes up, hit the horn and was very shocked how crappy it was

I'm still x2 on the train horn. If someone pisses me off enough for me to actually want to use my horn, they're gonna know for sure they messed up.

I put a caddy horn in my truck along with my stock horns. It is a nice difference, but still not as badass as a truck driver would want. Hella makes a horn I'm thinking of getting. lol Its a 118db horn.

Its not just the new trucks. I went to the JY and pulled 2 dual tone horns out of some SuperDuty's. I have a total of 4 horns behind the grille now each one has a high and low tone. Its no train horn but it get the job done. Total cost 10 bucks!
