Ok I know the answer I am looking for is here somewhere but problem is horn don't work and is was just replaced for safety. My thinking is I need to relocate it somewhere that doesn't get flooded by the front tire every time I go through a puddle. I plan on fixing this tomorrow. Any ideas of where the best spot would be. It is a 95 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 I6 .

Thanks in advance

You can move your harness up into the engine bay and mount them in between the headlight and the battery on the inside of the fender. I have my air horn mounted in there with the compressor side by side to keep it dry.

Thanks that sounds like a great spot and if my horns are dead might go straight to the air horns myself. Any suggestions on air horns?

I just got the wolo one from advance when i worked there. It has the high and low tone horns, compressor, and vac hose to make everything work. I had to put a scotch lock on the positive and ground wires and run 2 new wires because the connections are different but other than that its pretty much straight forward

Stripped the wires off the engine, attempted to remove the exhaust manifold but snapped the studs into the heads on both sides : probably shoulda heated it first

It can't be swapped as far as glass goes. Wish it did though, I recently swapped to one where the glass opened.

Cleaned it up, washed it, and filled it up. 15.5 mpg on this last tank. Also ordered a cable for my Alpine head unit to use Bluetooth for my phone last week. They sent the wrong cable now another week or so of waiting...

You can easily do that in 5 minutes at home with a crescent wrench. The alignment would take a little longer.

Uhg I have to do my exhaust manifold soon, new one should arrive tomorrow. I've convinced myself it won't be to bad but now I'm losing that blissful ignorance.

While I didn't do anything I got to use my roof lights for the first time since the reinstall and they are signficantly dimmer than I recall. I'm guessing the ground on my cargo rack is to weak but I've either stripped, broke or drilled out all the nearby siderail bolts (they just had to use torx bolts). So I'm gonna have to figure that out.
