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).

-1990 YJ, 2.5L, AX-15, lifted, locked, on 35's.

-1999 XJ, 4.0, AW4, lifted 4.5", JK Rubi take offs.

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.
