    I upgraded the horns on my Dodge Diesel, I used Wolo horns, I am looking at installing a hornblaster horn on my Corolla :devil:. The only trick is finding the space. On the runner, there is plenty of space behind the front bumper down low. What question specifically are you looking to get answered?

    Got cha. Most of the loud stuff will require a relay installation and use your factory horn wire to trigger the relay that drives the aftermarket horn. (That is arguably the quickest way to set it up).

    I have never seen a horn upgrade on any generate of 4Runner because it is good enough. Train horns in cars/SUVs are awesome not but not too sure they are legal but still think they are cool.

    It looks like you will need an air compressor which is something guys are doing, then attached the trumpets to blow them away.
