Air horns

Thinking of installing a set of Air Horns. Are they legal in all states? Also I have a air system already so I only need the horn set up. Any suggestions on a system?

Check out this thread. Will make folks sit up and take notice. I think they are legal in all states but that is just my opinion.

Air horns addition

They are legal. Train horns on the other hand are probably not.

Love my air horns and wouldn't be without them. You will need to install an air solenoid switch and seprate relay and tie it in to the steering wheel horn button. I would suggest putting a toggle switch in line so when your in residential areas you can turn off the air horns. Yes they are legal in all states. 18 wheelers all have them.

I always forget that I have air horns until I actually use it or I am in the process of washing the inside of the front windshield and lien across the steering wheel. Scares the bazeezus out of me

I believe I have Hadley Horns installed which are loud and sound like fog horn.

Hadley Part No. H00977

Go to Hornbusters and check the Nathan Airchimes if you want LOUD. I installed a single #3 on the Freightliner(had it sitting around the shop for years) and HOLY SH#T-beats the original hands down.

That's what I am talking about. Love the lift and extension system BUBBA built. Probably would blow the front panel off if he hit the horns before actuating device.

Can you imagine some unsuspecting moron cutting that guy off? Or the one that pulls around him and then slows down? OMG that was good for a long chuckle!

I have a buddy ,who has a Horn that doesn't require any external Air Supply that sound more Train Like than anything else that I have encountered!

No Air No Electricity ,just Plain Loud!

I have no idea where He got this thing !
