Talking Finally - New Wheels & Antenna

My new wheels finally came in and I also changed out my OEM antenna. I'm pretty stoked. Thought I would share a few pics.

Bought it while I was in Dallas at the 4 Wheel Parts store. I believe it was the "Big Stick" antenna. Here's the link to get it online. I got the 15in version.

Yes, usually a good idea to state when starting a thread about them.

ETA: Thanks, missed the last post posting.

I like the short black antennaes. I got one of the 14 inch antennex for my 12 Sahara. First day there were sunspots and I didnt think it would work, but now its as good as the original. I didnt like the long silver look.

Same here. Preferred the shorter black antenna's as well. Mine is a 15in though. So far so good on picking up radio stations.

The tires stick out around an inch or so past the vendor flares. My wheel's 0 offset gives me a 5 backspace. Stock wheels are around 6.50 BS.
