Screw the horn. Tie an old tire to your front bumper and push b1tches like that into the intersection. She'll hear you then....hahahhah.

I had airhorns on my Wrangler back in the day. Wolo, and I believe PIAA make some pretty good stuff.

There should be a double horn in the right front wheel fender housing behind the liner on the forward side. They are mounted to the rear side of the cross beam, behind the bumper and below the right headlight assy.

If the new horn has an other type of connector, you could better shrink this new type of connector to the wires. Best is to have some sealed connector, so that water can not enter and cause corrosion.

do they sell aftermarket harness for horns?

Should be relay driven already? add your own horn. If you want a second horn, you can make a relay driven off the first horn circuit, or any switch you want.

I installed one of these bad boys: Stebel 11690019 - Nautilus Compact Mini Air Horn Black : Amazon.com : Automotive

Comes with its own relay. Has a built-in compressor, so no additional hardware to mount. Have your own wiring ready, or buy the wiring kit offered with it on Amazon 'cause it doesn't come with wires and you'll need a lot (to run to battery; to horn; etc.). It's a loud little beast, definitely gets the attention of the texters who drift into my lane!

Check out the Hadley air horns. Not for the faint hearted, but good for startling the knickers off unattentive drivers.
