Because ZJs have 2 horns- a low tone horn and a high tone horn. The low tone horn breaks all the time, leaving just the high tone, which sounds wimpy. Normally, they should sound at the same time in a loud and sensible harmonic tone, but as with all ZJ electronics, something has to break.

When your doing a ap calc review packet for the ap test and the answer is D) 44. And instantly you start drifting off thinking about a different D44.

when i was installing my tow hook brackets, i broke the connector on the low tone horn so i took it off and rode with just the high one for a while, then yesterday at the pick n pull i grabbed a horn from a full size chevy pickup and threew that on there. sounds pretty good

Where did you see that? I want more info about the zj but i just keep finding the same stuff that is on wiki. I never seen an orvis any color besides green. That one on craigslist has the same rims as my 98 limited which i rarely see. Only a couple they are usually the waffle style.

There were super-rare silver Orvis-es in 97, but they still had the green/tan interior. All 95-96 and most 97 Orvis-es were green, however.

As far as those wheels, all 96+ Limiteds have the same wheels shown in that ad, although some have gold paint on the inner parts instead of silver, and the 96 - 97 Orvis had green paint on the inner parts.

Export Orvis-es looked pretty much like a niner except without the 5.9.
