My understanding is that a lot of the heavy Crazy Horse sound has to do with his overdriven late '50's era tweed amps that you probably can't replicate at home unless you have a late 50's tweed amp or facsimile, and a soundproofed basement or are single with no neighbors. However, there are a number of pedals that try to emulate that particular overdriven sound. I have looked into it myself and, based solely on youtube videos, I like the CTC Falcon Drive. The Catalinbread Formula 55 is another good option, but look into it yourself and see what other options you might like.
