Any advice is appreciated.
If you're going thru a car wash that bends your antenna, you're using the wrong kind've car wash, IMO. The kind with the cleaning strips, brushes, etc will eventually scratch the crap outta your Jeep (over and above any wheeling you may do). And if you've got a soft top, it'll trash the windows.
I use a self-operated coin wash only, to clean off mud, road salt, etc. Then wax it at home.
to wash? or not to wash??
Car wash destroyed softtop
Soft top through automatic car wash?
Also, you can get a stubby antenna that, quite frankly, rocks.
I got mine from Antenna-X (forum vendor).
Replace stock antenna...
