    Relentlessly searching for upgrades then the other day I passed a tricked out rig and my brain went haywire. At first I thought it was an exhaust 620AE87F-9295-47FA-A6DF-EADC95F25C72.jpg

    I did some searching and ended up with a $100 set of horns with 2 direct drive compressors. I was smiling ear to ear for an hour when I first fired it up. Now it could be one of 3 things. I’m going deaf, these things are already wearing out or I have a mental problem. I want MOOORE! Space up front is a bit tight so mounting another set of 2 would be hard. Many guys like the one above are going for the full $1000-1500 kits but I’m not there yet. Anyone have experience with these things?

    Thinking 2 kits in the rear of the truck. 2 facing forward and 2 facing back. My only fear is the reviews on direct drive compressors is poor. Or going with this but I’m having trouble swallowing the price tag.

    It would be fun to blast at the idiot at the traffic light so engulfed in their phone they don't move on green but even with my OEM horn drivers get so road raged these days when you honk at them.

    I think they have a pill to cure your issue.

    I would stay away from these unless you can mount everything but the horns inside the cab. My brother wasted about $2K on two sets that crapped out after about a year each. They won’t last under the truck and backward facing horns just piss off the dude behind you.

    I would mount everything including the horns in the cab just to be safe.

    Don't be a pu$$y. Mount ALL OF THEM Kenworth style. Right there on top of the cab. Hell. Might even inspire you to run a set of stacks up behind the cab.

    Make sure to get a set of truck nuts too. They really should just come with the air horns

    I hope I never get to old to have fun. I don’t think truck nuts, stacks or over sized tires on stock wheels will ever happen in my lifetime.

    I added 2 train horns with separate compressors. Later did I realize these little things only push 15psi. Horn blasters is 200 psi. The best part is this kit has a 100% duty cycle compressor so I can use it for a lot more then scaring livestock on my farm. 0DDC44DB-0914-4962-9484-60DB552966E6.jpg

    I just work a lot. Did 78 hours Thursday to Sunday over a Black Friday sale alone. Even managed to pretend to enjoy thanksgiving dinner.
