Update: I'll try a bunch of horn upgrades later this week, and will post an update.
Most auto parts stores and or Amazon should carry the FIAMM brand, Freeway Blaster low note and high note horns or something similar. They are similar looking to most factory high note/low note horns, but are slightly louder. Plenty loud.

We aim for the trail, but drive on the road. And too often, on the road we encounter distracted and dangerous drivers. To wake them up, I'd need a horn that's better than the puny one supplied by Jeep.

Any advice?
A set of these will work:

Do you have the AUX Switches installed? They can be programmed to be a momentary switch for things like horns.
No sadly, have the Willys sport model. Was thinking about getting some after-market ones if that is the best route to go.

That should be easy. Some of them even come with the button and the wire.

I ordered a couple, and will share the results next week.

I've used Stebel Nautilus compact air horns to great (if thankfully infrequent) effect on my motorcycles. The Nautilus is the original from which low quality clones like the Wolo "Bad Boy" come from.

A standard automotive 12V 30A relay will be required so that the Stebel's operating amperage doesn't overwhelm the [generally] thin OEM horn wiring.

A small snap-in snorkel is usually provided. This part allows the installer to use vinyl tubing for remote compressor air intake, if required for his application.

A mounting solution, specific to the vehicle in question, does usually need to be configured. Brackets, etc. aren't provided with the Nautilus.

PM me if you have any Qs.

If you get one that works.

The wolo bad boy is loud but high pitched like a euro cart.
I had this on my Speed3, loved how loud it was! The only thing I didn't like is when the car would beep when locked, in the cold it didn't beep, more of a sigh. Otherwise it was great

Thanks! Just ordered it.
It was an oversight on my part to omit suggesting a wiring harness to make the installation easier. The ad copy says "without relay", yet there is one plainly evident in the photo. Anyway, a spare relay can be added to the order, if desired.

Let us know how it works out for you. :like:
