Non-Air Horn Upgrade

After searching here and the interwebz I could not find a decent upgrade to the stock clown car horn on the YJ. I realize it's an easy swap, but I was looking for some advice on a good, louder, non-air type horn that is inexpensive, lasted more that a couple of years (the PIAA seems to be iffy on this subject) and preferably is plug and play. Slicing connectors is easy, but not as much as one that simply plugs in.

Do you need it to play the entire national anthem? or just the first few notes of it?

Rather not see the disrespect shown by your off color response.


The OP has a legitimate question and you offer a lousy response.

I bought a horn kit from Harbor Freight , it is much louder and sounds like a real car horn. Two horns and relay was less than $15.00. Been on there three years and still working.

I have mine hooked up to a siren.
But my friends have all been startled by me about a thousand times so I only get an eye roll now, time for a change.

I'm looking at a Wolo 370.
It is a Jeep original from way back and goes "MEEP-MEEP!" like the Roadrunner.

Far better than the horn that sounds like you just ran over a mouse. (stock)

I've heard Lincoln horns are nice and loud. I used to own 95 Town Car and it had very loud horns. The Lincoln LS I have now not quite so loud. So if you have a u-pull-it salvage yard locally, I'd say look for mid 90s Town Car horns if they are cheaper than the HF option mentioned above.

I've never used them myself, but I've heard great things about Hella Supertones... If you don't mind something high pitched.

Been MIA from here for a while... I'm trying to be active in this community again.

wow, someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed.

I can not believe how overly sensitive people are. Tell me, do you have to offended by everything?

Nice guy to a fault. You have to earn my dark side.


Little patience for unwarranted conjecture, outright ignorance and just plan stupidity.


We all have to learn. Some are better at it then others, I respect that. I will not however, cater to those whom are to lazy to at least attempt to try to find an answer to a problem.


This forum is nothing more then a tool. A group of folks with varying amounts of experience and knowledge. Unfortunately it is also a venue for parrots


To solely rely on it as a source for every little issue is abusing that tool, when you consider there is an entire global internet of information just a few keystrokes away.


The OP has a valid question. I gave him a good answer. If he cannot take the effort to search TWF then it`s his own fault. To insult me with your response, which I consider unpatriotic, is unacceptable in my book.


Don`t like it ? Block me, I really don't care.

If you want a louder, and more vintage "MASH" sounding horn, I installed a generic japanese auto/motorcycle style disc horn from NAPA.

If you want a loud, big car sound, older 70s Cadillac horns are the way to go. They have three different notes that give it that distinctive sound. A, B, and F, I believe . The notes are cast into the back of each horn body. They make your vehicle sound twice its size
