Hella Supertone b133 Horn Installed

A couple Fridays ago someone else on the roadway decided there was enough room in my lane for them as well. The sad little Jeep horn didn't convince them that I didn't think there was enough room, I took the shoulder instead of crunching up the poor guy/gal's beemer so when I got home I dug around on here and found a few writeups and ventured to Amazon & elsewhere to find a new horn.

I settled on a Hella Supertone from Amazon.

First, a stock test: Stock Horn Video

The stock locations looked tight and like a PITA to deal with, so I pulled the grill, the mesh needed to be tightened up anyway and washed & waxed a bit.


Ended up splicing and soldering into the wires on the horn on the driver side. I did pull the stock horn to make this easier.



There are some tabs with holes about the size of a 1/4" bolt on my 2011 JKU Rubi. I loosened up the radiator to help get the bolts in behind the tabs, kind of a pain getting a wrench on things as well.





They shipped a relay, but this tested out fine. If for some reason I blow a fuse down the road, it'll be simple to add the relay in. Tucked the wiring up behind the wire loom along the top of the radiator, soldered & heat shrinked all connections. Pretty easy job, took 2 hours tops. Seems like it'll be worth it.

Not bad i want to do something similar. I was thinking I was clicking into a train horn post. I would love to put a small compressor and a horn that will shake the car in front of me. Live in virginia people here suck at driving and I try and be nice but some of them need a beep.

I'm on the verge of getting a train horn but not sure where I could mount the trumpets and compressor on my much more tightly packed TJ. Any advice?

I can't comment on the train horns except back in Ocean City, MD, the cops didn't like Jeepers with those horns. I wouldn't use here in Houston, too many folks seemed pissed enough without getting blown out of their seat, I'd hate to piss off the wrong guy.

If you do get em, be safe.

Wiring

Did you do a separate wiring harness or hooked the horn to your regular horn wires in the Jeep?

Regular horn wires, working ok on the 2011.

I have a pair of Hella horns and aftermarket wiring harness and horn button. For some reason does not work . I think it's because I had to extend it by add longer wires and did a cut and clamp. Is soldering better it sould I look at the ground.

Crimp is fine if it was done right. I prefer to solder and heat shrink my connections due to how I use my Jeep.
