Alex, you might want to flip that over so it won't fill up with water....

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Yeah I need a new one anyways! The mount is busted and it's been full of mud from when I had it mounted behind the bumper on my bronco.

It will sound like mine. It's in such bad shape it sounds like somebody choking a goose, that has asthma, while it's gargling water.
It's the most pitiful sounding horn I have ever heard.. I guess that's why it fits on the Jeep so well.

I swapped in a new H1 steering gearbox that was 100% bolt on. Can't say how it feels yet while driving as I have other items I need to get done on the Jeep before bringing it out of hibernation.

Out with the old, in with the new!

Put a new grease fitting on the rear u-joint that got knocked off on a rock. I am thinking I should just put a non serviceable one in there since this is the third one to get knocked off.

I take it they on on the caps??? Why not go with one with the grease fitting on the cross.
Or replace the grease fitting with a set screw, until it's service time.
Not a fan of the non-geaseable u-joints.

Yeah they are on the caps, the ones in the cross are weak so really don't want to go that route. I also thought of the second idea you had and may go that way instead.
