Perfect....

Is there a kit I can buy that will give me something close to that effect.......

I'm not handy piecing something together so a kit would be ideal for me....seems there either Air horn or electric horn set ups.

I wonder if the electric set up would be loud enough.

if you want loud ur gonna have to go with onboard air so there are a few options for you...you can go out and get a compressor and a tank or convert your aircon and use it as a compressor, as for horns nothing says move your [email protected] a$$ like a dixie horn(http://www.carcoverkingdom.com/dukes-of-hazzard.php) and they are usually around 110-130Db or you can get a skidder horn off of an old pice of logging equiptment there about 150Db cuz they use them for calling in lunch breaks...hope that helped...i run onboard air so i opted for both...
