Louder Horn

I want to replace my stock yj horn as it's not enough to get attention on the highway
Any suggestions? I don't want to get into a big compressor install, I'm looking at Trigger horn evac 3 or chrome hawk

Get a horn from the junkyard and replace yours. Old trucks normally have louder horns, or I believe there is a write up on how to wire it so you have two horns(hi and low).

if you definitely can't (or won't) go to an air horn, I'd say your next best (loudest) option would be a set of electric boat horns

Well, I've seen some with a compact air compressor included. I mentioned 2 of them in my thread. Has anyone had any experience with these?

Go to the u-pull it and find an old Cadillac or Buick with the 4 horn setup, install all four. It will be plenty loud.

The ones with a small compressor are crap.

Junkyard.
Get 3 or 4 horns from big american cars/trucks. Get them all from different models, they will have different tones.
Wire them all to the factory horn wiring with a relay.
BAM. loud, and unique sound from them all being slightly different. You'll get some WTF looks as well. It's on my list of to-dos for the YJ, I've done it in other cars before too.
