Finally completed the installation of my air trumpet

After a couple of months I finally found the perfect spots for the installation of my air trumpet. This are the parts used.

Air trumpet kit (compressor, tank, dual trumpets and relay

Plastic ripped tubing (the one used to cover the cables

1 rocker switch

1 push button

#14 cable

1 VIAIR compressor in engine mount

tie wraps

I installed the VIAIR mount where the instructions said (where the brake oil is located). I had to modify it and so it did not rub one of the tubes which I believed was for the AC but when it rubbed I could feel the engine vibration on the brake pedal. Also, I created two small pieces of aluminum to be able to hold the air tank on all 4 points, the air tank legs were wider.

Mounted the air tank, so now for the compressor. I mounted the compressor in an empty spot between the battery and fuse box. Just used two screws to hold it secure to the plastic bottom on that location

Two down, one to go. Installed the dual trumpets using tie wraps to hold them to the radiator fan cover.

Ran the tubing for all air parts. Then electrical cables. On the inside I used power from the cigaret lighter to the relay then to the rocker switch then to the compressor. When turn the Jeep switch to the on position, power stops at the rocker switch, so if I want it will turn on or off on demand by using the rocker switch. If I leave the rocker switch on then it will be powered at all times and turn on only when air pressure goes down. I did it this way because I don't want it to have power when I hose the engine to clean it.

Installed a push button right behind the brake and just under and to the side of the closing latch of the center console storage bin. Found this spot to be easier to reach than moving my arm forward to press a bottom.

Used the black ripped tubing to cover all cables and hoses and make it look more professional. Then tied wrapped all the tubing together with the stock cables that are tied to the firewall. I forgot to mention that I painted the trumpets in black so the engine looks like if nothing has changed.

See pics below and let me know what you guys think.

I have to say it, SOUNDS REALLY LOUD, my wife got scared and cursed on me, he he he!!!

Yes they are pointed to the ground, I figured that way the sound would not be muted by the engine sound and water will never go and stay inside them.


I think that tomorrow afternoon I'll be able to record how it sounds, so hopefully tomorrow night I upload the file here.

Here are the audio files. On both I had the engine running. One is from inside my jeep with the windows up. The second one is from outside the jeep. Both are just a quick push and release of the horn button.
