oh boy.....you're gonna make me dig up 5 year old pics!

I'll give you this while I search: pull your grille off, relocate your horn to the driverside, lightly sand and paint your trumpets black, make a mounting bracket for the compressor for the driverside behind the grille, I think I may have unbolted the headerpanel for a sleek nice install to get the top horn mounted into place..... my pics will show you everything you need to see...our trucks up front are virtually identical.

I'll put all my pics from the laptop onto my external, and post back in this thread.

Best pics i've found(on my cardomain).

Also, you'll want the compressor as vertical as possible. My angle mount was a comprimise to fit with my horn and stay good looking.

Yeah man...no probs. I'm happy I didn't have to go disc huntin' for the pics! haha. I wanted a clean, good looking setup. I think I accomplished that. Ran it there for like a year then took it out. Out of highschool and it lost it's novelty to me. Still got the compressor bracket bolted to the truck.
