So I'm on side of the street, pulled up behind a car that's leaving its parking spot, and the guy who's leaving backs into me.
I said to my passenger momments before "I hope he doesn't back into me."

Dude is all nice and everything, until I ask to take his info down. Then it's all attitude. Nice.

Front bumper is a little scratched, but nothing major. I'm in for an oil change anyways, so I'll have a mechanic look at it to make sure the front is okay.
I have got the relevant info in case there's more than meets the eye.

Do I need a louder muffler or what?

Yeah, I'm gonna look into that...

How's the install? Difficult? Medium? Easy with the right tools?

Super easy.

Go find a set of Hella Supertones and throw those bad-boys in there. You'll be heard for sure!

If you need help installing it, lemme know. If I ever get my house finished, it'll only take at most 2 hours to do the install.

LaterZ!

MY cousin installed airhorns into his Dodge Dually....it will scare the crap out of whoever you honk at within a 1mile radius and they will surely SLAM on their brakes when they hear that.

saw a huge RV do a u-turn in the left turn lane, he did a real tight one too. Then I saw these two cars honking at him and the guy driving off. THe turn was too tight and the ass end of the RV went into the poor guy's Ford Escape. some people are just stupid.

Depends. Technically the stock wiring isn't rated to handle the higher current requirements of most aftermarket horns. Which means a relay, fuse, direct cable from the battery, the whole nine yards. On the other hand, if you're willing to chance it, then you can just plumb off the stock wiring and it's a dirt-easy install. Pick your poison, I guess...

Forget the horns. I vote for a gunrack.
