Not to happy with the horns.. Well im happy with the horns, but the instuctions SUCK , they do not make sence, and they dont have a parts list, the ONE picture in the instructions dont even match the real product, and yes its the right one. And the hose fittings arent 3/8 or 1/4 i dont know what the hell it is, i need like a 2foot hose with 2 female ends but none of the ones ive seen have them. I may be retarded, but the instructions suck. I feel like giving up. SHoulda done more reasearch i guess, to see if they fit under the truck ... But hey ill do my best to instal them and hook it up! Haave Faith!! Not trying to bash this horn, its just the instructions need to be alot better then what they are now..

The hose from the compressior motor to the tank, its only like 8 inch, and i need 3 feet. I took it to several dif places and no one could find a hose with a fitting to fit. SO im guessing its an outdoor hose, prob water pressurehose, and fitting for something else. idk im a retard i guess

the hose going from the compressor to tank is a "lead hose".

It has a check valve built in so you dont loose pressure back thru the compressor.

The fitting on the end should be a 1/4" or 3/8" NPT fitting (i forget which one) but you can put an extension or pipe or even tubing on the end of the lead hose.. You definately want the lead hose on the compressor tho being that it is built to accept the heat coming off the head.

Dont get discouraged so quick. Ask questions and that will lead to a easy install and lots of fun to come.

Exclamation Re: a sound clip pleasE?????

Thanks! It just very discourageing when EVERY AUTO STORE/ HARDWARE store, has never seen a hose like that.. The fittings are WEIRD, some 3/8 fittings fit in there but most are to big, and then some 1/4 fittings fit perfect, but are usually to small.. I dont get it its like 2 diff sizes.. If someone could please tell me the size of the fittings, and hose. The diamater, thread type, everything. I ve seriously been to 9 dif places to find a bigger lead hose, someone said it was a waterhose, another said it was a fuel hose... The hose line is 8in, i need 3 feet exact.. and a L shape fitting from the tank. Any help would be great! bbut i would love to have the RIGHT fittings, hose, and thread info! thanks!

So it's a 127VX Outlaw kit?

The specs say that it comes with a Viair 275C compressor.
I went to the 275C product page & clicked the "specifications" tab.

275C 12 Volt Air Compressor
1/4in NPT Braided Leader Hose & Check Valve
Two-Stage Air Filter
Replacement Filter Elements
Mounting Hardware
Detailed Instruction Manual
1 Year Manufacturer's Warranty

So at least one end of that leader hose is 1/4" NPT
Keep in mind that 1/4" NPT does not measure .25" - it's bigger.

That's about all I can help.
Oh if the port on the tank is 1/4" NPT you can use a "street elbow" for your 90 degrees.
