Consider Train Horns As an Upgrade to Your Car Or Truck  

Vehicle upgrades have become the thing to do for the past couple of decades in an attempt to make vehicle look more sleek and to make them more “you”. One upgrade that is easy and affordable to do is simply tinting your windows. A little tint goes a long ways.

Most units that you will find can only reach up to 150 db, while retailers are claiming they’ll put out over 170 dB.
