Bad radio reception?

I have a 2010 JK with the factory radio. It has horrible FM reception. Anyone one else have this problem? Btw these are stations that always come clear in everyother vehicle I've ever owned.

Been to the dealer with the problem? Perhaps it's just a disconnected antenna cable on the back of the radio??
My 07 has fabulous FM reception...

Only had the JK for two months so a dealer call is in my future. Just wanted to see if this is a widespread problem with the JK.

I couldn't tell you. I have never listened to FM in my Jeep.

I actually took the antenna off since I listen to satellite 100% of the time.

Have you checked to see if the antenna has come unplugged? You should be able to reach behind the glove box and get to it.

Wrap tinfoil around your attenna.

But yeah, +1 to going to the dealer and having them work on it.
