What now?

Over the last couple weeks I've done a few easy mods, namely switching the stock horn to a dual-note out of a wrecked Taurus, got a 2nd hand box liner, ordered and put on V6 emblems from escape/explorer, and (I know some of you will cringe) put on a cherrybomb glasspack. I intend to in the next few weeks purchase 265/75R16's and do a t-bar crank to near level (and align of course). I am interested in maybe installing air horns, as well as tinting the windows. Blacking out tails and painting the inside of the headlights black looks pretty cool on some of your trucks, and I'm basically just asking which one of these you all would recommend the most. Thanks in advance for any advice, my head is always too full of ideas to pick from

Headlight mod is super cheap, cost me 10 bucks to do mine. Air horns gets very expensive, your looking at 500 bucks for a basic kit that isn't crap. Tinting the front windows isn't bad, around here its about 80 bucks. Blacking out the tails isn't that expensive either you can get a can of niteshade for under 15 bucks. I would do the headlight mod and darken the tails. Then tint the windows and then do the horns.

The beauty of the horns is my uncle has a few old international dump trucks and a wrecked big rig, all of which have horns. I could get 90% of what I need from him, for next to nothing, and mostly all I'd need to get would be line in proper length for my application. I likely would leave it for a while though, that's a larger project than I care to take on right now lol

Check our Fx4wannabe01 and TrePaul86's horn setups they used horns like those and built their own kits. From what they said they didn't have to spend much on the project.

Lol they are the ones who gave me the idea in the first place. In fact, I believe TrePaul86 had a video on youtube of his then most current horns, which eventually led to me stumbling upon this website. When I do decide to get that involved in a project, I'll definitely check out how they got their's set up. Thanks for the tip!
