Wow maybe a Diesel Locomotive Train Horn.
Well we now have 6,300 miles on the truck. No issues whatsoever. Hasn't used a drop of oil and the mpg is still the same. Awesome little big truck.

Here's a picture of our first pickup. If you look closely you can see the twin (two tone) Hadleys on the roof. Under the hood were twin vacuum operated compressors and twin airtanks. Oh, and a slant 6... When you hit the horns the truck blew backwards.

Sorry it took so long to reply. Air horns are cool. And the slant six was a great engine. Good old Charger 225 c.i. I worked on many of them when I was a Chrysler Mechanic. Even worked on an industrial slant six in a motor home before.
We now have 12,000 + on the Colorado. No issues. We did just receive a recall notice for something about the emissions/def system. Maybe needing to be re-calibrated.
Let you know what they do if anything.
