Anyone changed horns??

I had a 2008 JKU and changed out the "sick goat" horn for a dual. Now I have a 12 and I cannot believe that Jeep still has not fixed this. Has anyone else out there change out your horn?

I think about it all the time but have yet to find one that I want. Perhaps a nice air horn?

I described my horn as sounding like a six year old with a hair lip trying to play the trumpet.....

Thank GOD someone has posted this question. I was about to get it started today.

The horn on my new Rubicon is, well..., ah,... not very "manly". Kinda wimpy in fact! I either have to change the horn or paint my Jeep pink! When you need a horn, you want it to get someones attention so they will not hit you. You don't want them laughing at you.

Speaking of horns, I am SO thankful you can program the horn to NOT sound when you lock the doors. I can't stand to hear everyones horn beep when they are locking their cars. Talk about noise pollution! Thank you Jeep for allowing me to listen for the sound of the locks themselves engaging and seeing the flash of the lights without hearing a horn go off (especially an embarassing one!) when I lock my vehicle.

Anyone have any good sources for horns?

Or a Subaru Impreza horn.... I'm thinking about swapping out a loud horn myself.

Subaru guys swap out Hella supertones. They're shrill and 120db. Electric horns. Make people jump when they pull out in front of you, saved me from getting run off the road several times by idiots not paying attention.

I had a Train horn left from my truck when I sold it. All 4 horns fit very well right behind the radiator. i put the air tank under the passenger seat.

Very happy with my train horn from air horns of Texas. It has now saved my bacon twice.

The three bells fit behind the rad, with the compressor over the right R fender. Not as neat as some solutions, but definitely loud enough. I had to add a side air circuit with a metering valve so that I could also blow the horn softly if needed.

I installed two PIAA horns yesterday in my 09 JK. Pretty easy.
Got these and they sound good.

I change out my horns and mounted a hadley under hood air horns. It a dual tone with an electric compresser and a gallon or 1.5 gallon air tank. I mounted to compresser under the hood next to the battery. I mounted to air tank under the jeep on the basically under the passenger seat to the floor. The frame of the jeep give the tank some good protection and has not hit anything while I have been off-road. The horns were mounted behind the front grill , theres a frame of some sort which has a good place and doesnt allow it to move around. I can post some pictures if you like sometime tomorrow. These horns are amazing and get people to pay attention or get out of way with no problem!!!! def recommend these and will be putting it on my 2012 when I gets delivered.
