    Not sure if you would call it an upgrade, but i wanted to change my horn to something that will basically scare the heck out of anyone near me :D. Ive been to a couple of "train horn" websites and some of them cost over 500$!!! i saw this type of thing at kragens but i wasnt sure if this would even be as loud as my stock horn... http://shop.oreillyauto.com/ProductDetail.aspx?MfrCode=WLO&MfrPartNumber=417&CategoryCode=3074 my price range is basically anything less then 150$ if you guys have any suggestions or info on current prices/horns that would be great.

    I was considering doing that too. I was after the Train horn with the on board air compressor. Helps when you have to air up your wheels after off-roading too.

    I say save your sheckels and clams and get the train horn.

    I had a set of Hella Supertone horns on my 96 - they were LOUD!!
    Had them mounted in the middle of the grill.

    If you look at your horns, there's a metal cover that you can remove. Makes them a little bit louder without the cover. Just pop the covers off.
