This is an overview of the install of my Viair Ultra Light Duty onboard air system and my Wolo Model 847 Siberian Express 'Train Horn' that I installed on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler: Sahara Edition.
The tank is 1 gallon and though it does sound the horn for short blasts you'll likely want the 2.5 gallon tank for longer runs of the horns. The closest horn I can think of that this one resembles would be a Nathan P3 but the tone is definatly off from that one.
Overall the entire Jeep is a big toy for me and this is something I've wanted to do for years. I figured the rail enthusiasts would appreciate it and fellow Jeep owners would like to see how the set up was installed.
For the horn 'purests' out there that think it's a virtual sin to place a horn of this magnitude on a vehicle, feel free to complain away. My skin is thick.

lack of tools and material made it a very difficult challenge

Ship Horn Truck at TCSP.m4v
We met this man while camping at Traverse City state Park. He had rigged
his flat bed pick up truck with all kinds of ship and train horns, all
hooked up to a compressor. He gave us a very brief demonstration, but we
didn't hear half of what this thing could really do, sound and volume wise!
Jeep Wrangler Project: Sub Console Replacement
I made this to hopefully help anybody out that is looking at replacing
their stock console subwoofer in their Jeep Wrangler. I utilized
JeepForum.com, as well as WranglerForum.com. I have to throw out a special
shout out to Rogue, ArcherAce, USMCTJ, and several others whose pictures
and directions directly assisted in this install.
This replacement is not going to make your Wrangler shake, but in my
opinion is a huge step up from the paper woofer (that chances are is
already blown in your Jeep). I also have two JBL 10s in the back, so it
doesn't compare, but if your not going to run additional woofers, you
definitely need to do this upgrade. Also, even if you are going to run
supplemental woofers you should do this for when you ride with the top off.
I basically have to shut my subs in the back off, 'cause they are worthless
in open air...most are; but the console sub still compliments the rest of
the audio system while topless (my Jeep, not me...I'm a dude).
You can purchase this sub at Amazon or eBay (around $60), or can even go
cheaper with a Pyramid (around $20).
Also worth noting, I did not use the existing amp, so I do not provide any
help on wiring, but the two forums I listed above have ample info. I have
two aftermarket amps, so I am running the console sub off of 2-channels
(bridged) at around 100-watts RMS.
Last note, I promise. Because I was running mine off of a bridged setup, I
bought the 4-Ohm speaker, but it is also offered in a 2-Ohm, which you
might consider if your going to run it off of the stock amp but I really
couldn't tell you one way or another.
I'm not sure anybody will actually view this, but if you do:
A. I'm from Texas, I can't do anything about the accent.
B. This was shot in the middle of the night & day in my garage, at times
I'm extremely tired.
C. I'm obviously not a professional, so correct terminology, spelling, etc
aren't my strong suits.
D. This was all shot on my iPhone, sorry if the quality is not the best.
If you have any questions feel free to ask.
My next projects are installing Smittybilt SRC bumper & tire carrier, as
well as some additional interior LEDs.
