For whatever reason she's listed as 'lunar' green. Just off from rescue enough where the paint to much stuff doesn't match

Will the thicker off-road unit perform better or the same as the billet 14"? I installed the billet 14" and am loosing a few stations here & there.

AntennaX, will those that lost some reception, gain it back if they add a hidden antenna? will that boost anything?

OK Mr X, I ordered one as well. Sounds like you have a good fan base. We will see if it affects my reception (outskirts of Houston). Last time I tried to order an antenna, the guy went out of business.

Just changed my stock to the black billet shorty. Maybe just a slight decrease in performance on the weaker stations. Worth it not seeing the stock antenna flexing while driving. Its a cheap mod and you still have the stock antenna for insurance.

I just got mine and installed it today. My antenna was very hard to remove and when I took a look at the threads in the base, it looks as if whomever installed it didn't line up properly. I was able to get the antennaX installed, but it took quite a bit of tightening to get the new antenna to seat fully and not have a "gap" near the base. Haven't had a chance to test it out yet, but it does look great.

yes, we offer free shipping for both USA and Canada. Please allow 2 to 4 weeks for delivery to Canada as they might get held up in customs

hidden antenna replaces your stock antenna, all 3 for the Jeep will have the same reception-- i guess it just depends where you live

I was wondering the same thing. I too noticed a decrease in reception with the new antenna. I like the looks enough to seek out alternatives to try and restore the reception. Any suggestions on how to add to the power? I see so many cars with no antenna's now that there must be some way to boost performance.

I added one and love the look. I only lost some reception on one station, ESPN...which sucks because that's what I listen to in the morning. However, that station for whatever reason in the DFW area has been kind of hit and miss on reception. So I'll give it a pass. Overall, I'm pleased with the antenna.

I just today received and installed my 14" Black Billet AntennaX.
This is literally a 30 second install with a small adjustable wrench.

-Quality mast and adapter (there are few different style adapters in the package... only one will fit correctly)
-Quality packaging - no issues with damage through shipping

Thanks AntennaX

Dam I never noticed the Billet one, I might have to order another. But you could probably get the same look by cutting down the stock one and painting it black.

Install tip for billet:

Use some heavy fabric or adhesive-backed "soft side" Velcro on the jaws of your adjustable wrench for a scratch-free install.
