Cool Air horns..?

hey guys. with work slowing down here and there i find myself staring at my truck thinking of ways to change it up a little bit...every day its something new and different...for a while though i have been curious about a set of air horns...do i need em? no...not really..BUT it sure as hell would be cool to have em! sooo...im aware that there are kits out there for 300, 500, 1100 bucks...thats a little steep for a guy who doesnt really need em......i have seen on ebay just horns that sell for 80 bucks...i know i need a compressor, air lines, and a switch. what size tank and compressor is needed? anyone build their own kit?

Look into the ViAir air kits and from there just buy a set of horns and then you have a good setup that is able to air up tires and use air tools, one of the best add ons my truck has!

Def go with viair compressors. As for the horns I wouldn't waste your money on a cheap ebay set. As far as a tank / compressors go though that will depend all on which horns you choose.
