I stared at it and debated taking it on Friday to brave the rain and cramped conditions for a work event just to have my jeep there. What did you do?

The only thing about a Yj that's reliable is its mechanic.

My new bumper and winch came in today.  Both survived shipping and will be installed on Sunday!

I tried to figure out how to fit two jockey boxes, a jockey box cover, two co2 gas bottles, three ice tubs, a 10x10 easy up, and some kegs in there for the Lorton Brewfest......

Removed recently non-working horn.  Off to the junkyard at lunch if it isn't raining to see if I can find one from a 70s Deville or other large GM car.

I really need to do that swap as well. Let me know what you find.

I loved putting those on my old air cooled VW's back in the day... No one could figure out who was honking in traffic...

I need to do the same - I am thinking GMC truck. My current horn sounds like you are sneezing, it does not strike fear in the hearts of anyone.

Exactly why I need to do the swap. Ignorant drivers do not even hear my horn when I honk in anger.

So.  The junkyard in Lorton had a 2000s Cadillac but it was stripped.  It also had the perfect 1978 4-door Brougham, but all the horns were gone and a bunch of other stuff.  I grabbed a mounted pair from a newer Trailblazer but it started to pour so I can't check them until tonight.  Might still eBay some Caddy horns at some point.

My four note horn is AWESOME!!  Try using two relays per two horns.  I used one for four and blew a fuse.  Going with two now!  Solder and shrink wrap the wires.  Harbor Freight has inexpensive ones!  If I am talking to much, and you know this, just tell me to STFU, but in a nice way.  ROTFL

Was supposed to fly to Europe with my parents to visit my brother, who I haven't seen in a year since he moved to London. My American flight at 730 was delayed until 11 and then canceled, and then they rebooked me on a 5pm flight from Dulles (instead of DCA). Go all the way to Dulles, that flight is canceled. Miss my international connection, next available flight isn't until Sunday.

Open beer, rewire winch, go to bed.

I'm actually surprised at how good the XJ horns are...... But I kinda want another OOOOgah horn.
