Just got my black billet antenna today. Too lazy to install it until it warms up a little.

Thank you. Hopefully your correct and this was just a defected piece. It certainly wasn't over tightened and the one on my wife's antenna is doing fine so far.

Installed mine last week. I got the Euro style. Tiny bit reduction in reception quality in some (Not all) of the stations but I can live with it. For the look, it's worth it.

Got mine from manny, moe and jack for like 5 or 8 bucks. Had to tap it out (aluminum) and cut the head off a bolt to mount it, but works fine, no loss of signal.

So I got around to installing my billet antenna. Drove 40mi round trip between two towns with no loss of signal. Looks a lot better then the factory antenna.

I see that you have different part numbers for the 13" rubber antenna for the two door and four door Wrangler. Is there any difference? I see that I can order this through Amazon, but they only list the part number for the unlimited.

I hate to be buzz kill, but I ordered 13" rubber AntennaX and there was significant reception loss compared to stock antenna. I have 2012 730N media center and about 15 miles as the crow flies to NYC. I loved the way it looked, but function over form so off it came. Just beware if you like listening to radio and travel some.

My stock antenna has horrible reception. Hoping for an improvement with the 14 billet.

Not likely. About 33" (stock length) is 1/4 wave length for middle of FM freq., IIRC. Shorter = weaker reception: it's just physics. AM too.

I have this one and it has been on for a month now and love it. I have the 420n, no reception issues at all and just as clear, if not better, than stock, knock on wood. And my car wash takes it off everytime the jeep goes in (once a week) and again, alls good.

Just ordered the billet 14" based on all the positive feedback. Sounds like AntennaX has great customer support.

Does the stock antenna harbor the external temp reader? Or is it somewhere else on the vehicle? I hate the stock antenna but don't want to loose outside temp reader.
