You want an external horn, yes? Or are you trying to use the existing horn button on the steering wheel? Either way, I would suggest a relay whether it be using the dedicated jeep wiring or wiring your own.

Just wire it up like any circuit. Power to the switch and same power out of the switch (or horn button) that goes to a relay to initialize it. I ran a separate horn on my jeep and it was just as simple as wiring up anything else
