Well maybe my perception of train horn people is skewed because where I live it's not women trying to scare off an attacker at a gas station but more so 20 something year olds scaring old people in the shopping center parking lot.
@Nick1236 - I think you've just agreed with @legmar 's point... ?

No I don't think I'm quiet swayed yet.
Would you be swayed if I promised to keep a conductor hat handy, and be sure to put it on before using the air horn? Maybe some some overalls? ???

All in good fun man! In my defense, I am a few months short of my thirty sixth 5TH birthday.....

Well I have 6 of ‘em. Can’t see using them all for off road light.

What accessories do you all run on them?
One of my plans are to
*Initiate a relay to redirect your factory horn circuit to an air horn. The normal position passes the factory squeeker, and the on position routes to AIR HORN.

My current plan (subject to change since I’m months away from actually getting my truck):
1. Under-bumper reverse lights: https://www.bajadesigns.com/products/Ford-Super-Duty-17-On-Reverse-Kits.asp
2. Winch: https://www.fordtremor.com/threads/cut-out-relay-for-winch-power.4388/
3. Onboard air compressor
4. TBD, top contenders: front off-road lights, high idle, 2LO mod (https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1546205-2lo-mod-2wd-low-auto-front-hub-override-mod-2.html)
5. [Permanent power] Camp lights
6. [Permanent power] Strobe lights: HOT New LED lighting MOD | 17+ Ford Superduty

So I don’t have enough upfitter switches for everything I would ideally want to run. :oops:

Lol! Don’t know if I will do all of them. Gets pretty pricy. But definitely want to do some of them for whenever I’m stopped on the side of the road, usually lending someone a hand, to act as warning lights.

Last time was at night on a 45mph road, their car was blocking a lane, and the person broken down was standing behind their car waving their phone flashlight trying to get people to move over. ?

Getting the same effect as after-market warning lights, but using the factory lights, which I think is pretty handy!

(And as a lovely example of how bad drivers can be, when a cop car showed up and blocked the lane, with their ridiculously bright lights on, someone still managed to barely move over in time. ?‍♂️)

You train horn people are scum... Personal opinion and go ahead and flame me for it. No reason to have a 110+db horn on your vehicle. It's a dick move and you know it.

Already twice this week, I found myself wanting a train horn. Oblivious and obnoxious drivers are everywhere here, and they don't care if they cut you off and run you off the road, as long as they get in front of you. Having a little *beep beep* factory horn just doesn't quite make the impression I want to these idiots.

Sure the factory horn may be *beep* *beep* but you can get a different 12v horn and not need a 150+db train horn.

I really wanted to do all the lights from the video in number 6 on your list. They are definitely expensive, so I decided that I’d give Zflash a try for now. Maybe I’ll upgrade in the future. Please post details if you install the limitless auto works kits! ?

For me
SW1 - Engages solenoid to send power to the front and rear for Winch or Jumper Cables
SW2 - Aux Back-up Lights
SW3 - BCP Battery Charge Protection, BCP regulates engine speed between 600 to 1200 rpm to maintain required
charge system voltage
SW4 - High Idle

Do you have any details on how you setup that switch for BCP? That sounds super handy, particularly when using a winch.

Where did you mount the ARB at? I would love to see installation pictures.
Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner, haven't been on the site for a while. I mounted everything under the cab, passenger side. I had to fabricate the mounting brackets myself. Then, instead of using the std ARB intake filter, I ran the intake line up & into the truck's air filter box. The silver sending unit on the back of the tank is for an in-cab gauge (haven't figured out a clean place to mount the gauge yet). The black piece next to it is the hose connector covered by a black rubber finger protector to keep dirt out.
