Which horn you got?

Need a new horn for my CJ..original one is shot, you can barely hear it. Looking for good replacement recommendations (in stock location, stock size) that is pretty loud, thanks.

If you are willing to take the time and, honestly it's probably better to just buy one, you may can take it apart and fix it. Not sure how attached you are too it. I was able to take mine apart and fix it. It was an older factory horn. It's the old Spartan model SA meep meep horn. Brought back a lot of memories as a kid to hear it again.

I went with one from an old F-series pick-up. It's a dual horn, and packs enough punch. Picked it up at the scrap yard for $15, and it mounts in the OEM location. All you've got to do is split the horn power - one to each horn.

I think it grabs the attention better. I'm so used to the dual tones that a single horn sounds like one died.

Cheap replacement horn from O'Reilly's

Its enough to make noise. Other than that, I don't care.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

FIAMM triple air horns, set to duo tone. Brings back memories of central Milan.

I am sure they are utterly illegal but I love it when cyclists in front crap themselves.

Me too.

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
