buy the stainles steel windshield mounts and paint them black. the black ones became rusty in only one winter at my old TJ.

osram (belongs to hella) has some very bright H4 replacement bulbs.

Got the dual horns here. Was able to simply disconnect the OE horn and plug it in its place. They are cool (were the first mod ever to my TJ), but I think in retrospect I'm thinking of upgrading them to a set of train horns. Don't get me wrong, they have gotten me out of numerous near hits where the soccer-mom wasn't watching while toting her brewd in the Suburban or mini-van. They are loud enough that the soccer-moms got startled enough she probably wet herself

As an aside, do you remember back to the movie Cannon Ball Run? The Lambroghini in the movie had a pair of them in it.

Hmmm...pics...

Holy crap, I actually found 'em...



Original horn:



Mounted the little compressor in its place and used the existing wiring and even the OE bracket:



Then put the horns just above the tire:



Here it is 4 years later and they are still running fine

I used to have those horns. Sounded great and were all 1 piece so were simple to install.

i have a scuba bottle that i will install as an air tank on a belly-up skidplate in the future. actually i only have the 70 psi compressor.
btw. the stock compressor has only 20 psi.

yep although people dont look for you and cut you off on regular basis, its your fault for using your horn. People don't hear the regular horn either because they are too busy talking on the phone.
