The slight delay is annoying. I live in Jersey. The horn is the most used accessory on the Jeep.

Everything is delayed in the JK. It was designed by Einstein. It involves E=MC something or other. Something to do with space time continuim or a black hole or fox hole or some kind of holish type thingy.

Used the horn for the first time the other day and I kid you not, my first reaction was, "Well, that f@ckin' horn's definitely going up the mod list."
