I just got those in 255/70 and they are great tires. Quiet, aggressive, and they absorb bumps great. I can't wait to take them in the snow.

I wanted a louder horn but have no plans on installing on-board air for a truck horn. So......... I was walking through Harbour Freight yesterday and saw a "Musical Air Horn" kit on sale for $12. Came with three horns and a slightly bigger compressor then the other kits. And it was $12. So I took it a part and removed the spinning disk inside that creates the "musical" effect. Plugged three air holes (leaving just the one) and mounted the longest horn that came with the set.

Now when I blow the horn it sounds like some kind of injured goose or something. It is a little louder though. But hey, it cost twelve bucks and gave me something to do for a few hours on a Saturday. I'll end up removing it cause it's cheasy (although I knew that going in) but it's funny for now.

So for anyone who has wondered what those cheap direct drive air horns sound like.... enjoy.

Factory first. Then both together.

That's what I was thinking too. Sounds like a lame duck
It's going to last a week until my buddies get all the jokes out.

I was always curious as to how loud those things were and for $12 I figured I'd find out. Pretty much what I expected.

Reinstalled the OME rear shock for a couple of days so I can take my Fox shocks to a buddy for a little more tuning, hopefully for the last time.

See How It Was Made

Ok this wasn't today, but over the last month I have installed 4.7 h.o. Cams and beehive springs, 180 degree jet thermostat, fastman 70 mm throttle body and ome hd rear springs. And all my maintenance. All fluids, filters and plugs. Next is the 08 intake but I'm not a 100% sure what I need, airram says I need the intake and 300 dollars worth of adapters or do I just need the throttle body adapter.

05 laredo, 4.7 V8, H.O. cams, fastman t.b. OME hd 3", Rustys .5 spacers, bilstein 5150 rear, yukon spider & side gears, superchips flashpaq, 33x12.50x17 nitto mud grapplers on black moabs, 1.5 spidertrax wheel spacers, flowmaster 40 series, K&N cai, Mopar gas tank, T.C & engine skid plates, riddler diff cover, removed sway bar on front.
