Anyone have train horns on their trucks? I'm looking into buying a set. It won't be my main horn, but will have a little button on the side. After doing some research on them... their really expensive (1200) their really redneck, but i really want them! Anyone have them?

I already have a 120v compressor on-board for tools powered with an inverter and an 8 gal aux. tank. I got a set of horns on ebay, $50. You can get a tank for like 30 bucks and re-fill it with your shop compressor whenever you want to get horny. These is the horns I got, they are LOUD. Same guy has compressors and tanks for cheap that run on your 12v. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Chrome-Compact-Quad-Train-Air-Horn-Truck-RV-Car-Blemish_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33704QQihZ017QQitemZ270382703526QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

Yea there is no need to spend $1200. We have plenty of affordable horn systems.

How much for a set that plays "Dixie" like the General Lee?

Something to consider.

If Banks will make an exhaust brake for the Ford 6.0, I would buy it. And then I would have air in the truck, so I would probably add air bags in the back and air horns. Electric horns lack the ability to generate real urgency in the mouth-breathing ******s that seem to have been born to pull out in front of me while I am grossing 20,000 lbs.

I bought a set of horns and compressor and all the wiring and air lines and fittings for 417 dollars last year, Go to www.hornblasters.com My buddy bought a set off of ebay and they are junk, mine blows his out the water, if you buy cheapies the diaphrams in them break and get worn out, and arent strong at all, thats what makes all the noise.

I've had a set of Dixie horns on my last three vehicles. They run about $150 but the compressors only last about 2 years and replacements are as much as a new set of horns. My next truck is getting train horns and Dixie horns, just to one up everybody!!!:laugh::laugh:

I have the Hammer 3 from Seige Engineering along with the 200 psi pump and 5 gal tank. Its VERY loud and te 5 gal tank comes in handy for filling tires and blowing out filters.
