Found this on the wrangler forum. According to the forum it is listed in the owners manual between pg 20 - 25 depending on year. Mine was through the EVIC so was pretty easy.

Sound Horn On Lock
This feature will cause the horn to chirp when the doors
are locked with the RKE transmitter. This feature can be
turned on or turned off. To change the current setting,
proceed as follows:
• For vehicles equipped with the EVIC, refer to “Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Personal Settings
(Customer-Programmable Features)” in “Understanding
Your Instrument Panel” for further information.
• For vehicles not equipped with the EVIC, perform the
following steps:
1. Push the RKE transmitter LOCK button for 4 to 10
seconds.
2. While the LOCK button is pushed (after four seconds),
push the RKE transmitter PANIC button. Release both
buttons.
The “Sound Horn On Lock” feature can be reactivated by
repeating this procedure.

Many thanks! That‘s not in my manual. It did the trick, though.

I know that you can disable the horn both for remote starting and locking with the remote because my Jeep doesn't do either of those things.

To disable the horn when locking the doors, I might have gone with this suggestion - https://www.wranglerforum.com/threads/turn-off-horn-when-locking-jeep.1234225/ - but I'm not at all sure about it. Some sites say that will also disable the horn when using the remote start. Don't know for sure, and since mine doesn't honk in either scenario I'm not likely to experiment!

Google search is your friend!

(Edit: I didn't realize that people had already posted the solution a few hours ago. I thought I was at the end of the thread, but it was just the end of that page!)

Me beginning to wonder if this was possible coincided closely with reading this thread.
Thank you for your response.

I placed my order a few weeks ago and I've gotten... absolutely nothing. Other than the 10% being charged to me, of course. I even reached out via email about next steps in the process and I'm still awaiting a reply. Kinda frustrating, just give me something.
I ordered mine in August. Just got it last Friday (3/12/21). I was able to reach John about three times. I had better luck calling later in the day. I found that if you keep trying he will eventually answer. The main thing is make sure your order is correct, then, sit back and wait. It’s totally worth it and I would do again. They make a great product and they are very busy.

Looking for ideas on how to mount 4 Maxtrax on the roof ahead of my solar panel. Anyone done it?

Here’s how I’m set up now:

That looks great! Can you share how you mounted the panel and ran the wiring. My J30 came with two Yakima mounts towards the front. Thinking maybe I could remove the mounts and use the same holes for a rail like yours. I really don’t want to drill into the top, but I really want to add a solar panel. Thanks!

Hey, wanted to share a couple things on the J30. I ordered in August and received in March. I was planning on driving to CA and have it installed, but due to the surge of COVID babies I had to cover a coworkers shifts for maternity leave. This honestly worked out well. It would have cost more to drive from TN to CA than to have it shipped. With shipping I saved the California sales tax and with the cost of the crate I ended up getting $40 back.

When picking up the crate. I used a Uhaul 8 x 12 open trailer. The crate cleared with about 1” on either side. When I got home I had to use a reciprocating saw and cut the crate apart. While doing this I had previously asked 4 guys to come over to help lift it onto the Jeep. You need 4 guys

Make sure, you add the sticky foam to the camper side rear area before you place on the Jeep. We had to lift it back off the Jeep to add.

Last, the instruction read that the white wire attaches to the brake light. This wire was blue on my wiring harness.

When we got it installed it as dark and trying to rain and I haven’t taken any other pictures of it.

The J30 came with the Thule rail option and I mounted the solar panel with brackets from DIYvan.com (http://m.ebay.com/itm/131702371613?_mwBanner=1). Note: You’ll want to measure between the two tracks and know the dimensions of your solar panel. You’ll give the measurements to Hein, the owner, so he can make the short block pieces the right length to match up with your solar panel.AE4744D6-19BF-4406-9B80-6A0634BBE219.jpeg
The wiring runs through a hole at the right-rear corner of the top, then joins the wiring pocket in the tent before going to a solar controller inside the cargo area. UMV ran the wiring when they installed the top, so I’d defer to them for other questions on how they prefer to wire for solar.

6BA11DCE-9C06-4FA7-88DC-AC4FA73EB3BE.jpegI recently replaced the rails with longer ones and had them installed at Rack Attack in Santa Monica (https://www.rackattack.com/), where they were able to re-use the existing holes and carefully continue along top of the camper hinges.

I just received some additional brackets and 80/20 bars and will be putting together a mount for the Maxtrax soon.
