In this article, Diesel Tech magazine breaks down the install of our Conductor's Special 2485K dual tank Spare Tire Delete kit (as you may have seen on the internet or social media). Our Spare Tire Delete kits are becoming a growing trend in the automotive industry. Sometimes you just want to be able to have a voice on the road. One way to make sure of that is with one of our HornBlasters train horn kits. The editors at Diesel Tech magazine caught up with us to check out the options that we have available for an easy and quick install.
With the Spare Tire Delete kit becoming so popular we knew that we had something special to offer. Full-size custom trucks are ditching their factory spare tire to replace it with this all-in-one mounting solution. It utilizes the factory spare tire crank to lift and secure the bracket up into place. This lets you mount a fully functional onboard air system and a loud train horn in just the space of the spare tire well. The Spare Tire Delete kit has made the installation for our Conductor's Special kits 232-2485K quicker and easier than ever. Using just some basic hand tools and some basic wiring skills, the customer can have it installed and ready to go in about 3 hours. The kit ships complete with hardware, wiring, and detailed instructions, making this a complete and ready to go package.
Recently at the 2019 SEMA show we released our dual tank Spare Tire Delete kit. Giving you the ability to have double the air volume, going from 2-gallons to 4-gallons. This not only doubles your honk time, but gives you the extra air volume you need to air up a tire or use an air tool. This kit features our insanely loud, american-made and hand-tuned to perfection Shocker XL train horns. Alongside two 2-gallon air tanks and Viair's new top-of-the-line 485C air compressor.
As Diesel Tech magazine mentions in their article, HornBlasters carries more than just train horns and air horn kits. We carry air suspension accessories/parts, marine horns, specialty horns, novelty horns, public address systems and many other pneumatic related products. Carrying top of the line brands such as Viair, Oasis, Air Zenith, Air Lift, Slam Specialties, Firestone, and SMC.
