ebay I thikn! Otherwise google "train horns" and i bet you can find some setups. If I remember Evan telling me, his setup can blow the horns for minutes, while the ebay types blow for a few seconds.

Just wondering, how would on board air benefit you?

Because I know rock crawler guys want them to air down, but since your on sand, is it to pump up tires if a bead pops or something?

see the kits on ebay..the tanks are small..the compressor is small so it will run alot..

but alons has good stuff i helped him with buying his stuff..

you can get horns for like 150 that will be fine..its a 3 chime chrome set

but you can buy single grover horns (aka semis) for like 20-40 bucks

I air down to about 5 in the back, 7 up front and sometimes have to air down the trailer too. Then need air in quad tires, and airing everything up in the middle of the desert... it would be nice to have

Also, i was going to do an airhorn, but never got around to it

I went to napa and picked up a twin semi horn for a mere $52 a few years back. Ordered my valve from a trucking shop, and tanks from the local tire shop.
