Installed SPECO 6" Aluminum PA horn to fog light mount tab on SRC bumper.
Its a temporary location but I wanted to get max sound for football game friday. Cut plugs off one end of Red/White stereo cable and wired into PA horn. Plugged uncut end into another cable that changes from Red/White plugs to 3.5mm jack. Then into back of Uniden PRO-520xl CB. VERY LOUD! Pretty good for an unamplified because I closely matched the wattage/ohms and got a high sensitivity (105 dB).

Parked next to my stepdad's new-to-him '92 YJ. Needs some wiring fixed and bedlined interior, but he got a good deal.

Sanding bumper to bed line. Got some rattle can bedliner from Lowe's. Tried to remove bumper and hitch reciever but bolts are stuck. Soaked in PB Blast for two days but two bolts won't budge. Said the hell with it and taped it off.

Bumper primed

Sorry forgot pics of finished product. Was in a rush. It came out good and even except where I oversprayed. I just wiped the excess of with the sandpaper and resprayed it. It looks great now.

Stock plugs being cut
imag0190.jpg
The bare wires
imag0191.jpg
Wired to test. Added crimped wire joiners when installed
imag0192.jpg
Speakers installed. They fit perfectly. No cutting of brakets required in mine. That must have been earlier models.
imag0194.jpg
The stock speakers removed. I thought they were supposed to be 4x6" speakers. Maybe that was on older models too. Almost made the mistake of buying 4x6 replacements.

Is the warn control box supposed to be on the right side? I put mine on the left on top of the 3 big cables..probably doesn't matter but this is second build that I have seen the box mounted on the right.

It's shown on the left on the package but I couldn't get the box to fit over the wires. So i just turned the bracket around and mounted it on the right. It shouldn't make a difference. Mounts the same either way.

Gotta love the PA. It really never gets old.

This is an exceptionally clean Jeep, hopefully that will change. j/k

In all seriousness though, how are those horns you put in?

And did you replace your head-unit as well or just the speakers?

I just deleted this mod list. It was funny the way I used to think.

Yep. It's high on the list ^^^. But I'm not a crazy crawler, so not as big a deal.

It's awesome. The high sensitivity aluminum makes it so loud. But the manager at my local Sonic doesn't appreciate me celebrating a hs football game victory in the parking lot.

It will stay that way. It's my DD and, while I own all of the mods, my dad has the title.

They're great.$22 bucks using a free giftcard to O'Riellys. Much louder and sounds like a Ford Expedition horn.

I had bought a Kenwood head unit earlier. No amps yet though

Yea those little bastards are a pain to take off and put on. Trying to get a heavy as **** winch and plate up and over an SRC bumper without dropping it or scratching the bumper isn't much fun either. Plus the cables started to rub the paint off the grill so I had to get creative with zip ties.
