Most SUV's have antennas embedded in the rear side window glass and some in the windshield. But it seems like the window has to have some degree of angle in order for reception. Now the Wrangler has a steep windshield, and no rear glass unless you have a hardtop--but the hardtop glass also has a steep angle. So unfortunately, the Wrangler probably will always have a stick antenna

They sent me a confirmation email with a tracking number. I would assume they would do the same for you.

I ordered mine 2/17 and still hasn't shipped. Since it hasn't shipped I'm going to try and change to the billet one instead.

Doesn't fit

Well, this sucks !!!! Bought a 14" from AntennaX on Ebay on Feb 7th. It arrived today, so shipping to Canada took 3 weeks. Unscrewed the factory antenna and none of the Four adapters or the coupler are wide enough Diameter to screw in the Mount. Am I missing something?

Mine screwed right one. I used the adapter with the fattest bottom. (and of course the top side screwed on to the antenna. It literally took 30 seconds on my jk. The diagrams on the back are a bit wishy washy.

Which one did you order? That's what I would expect for shipping, not sure why it's taken 11 days so far for mine to ship.

Obviously I didn't get the right adapters in mine, even though I ordered it for a 2012 wrangler sport. None of the adapters are fat enough.

I'm going to be pissed if I have to wait another 3 weeks for the right adapter.

Read a lot of the posts here. Thinking of getting an antennaX for my 2012 jkr when it arrives but am a bit concerned about loss of reception. Thinking instead about simply plasti-.dipping the stock antenna and trying it out for a while. Never have been bothered with my current 05tjx. Anyone else try this?

Everyone wants the shorty because it is short and doesn't interfere with lights or just looks better. There are some posts about folks cutting the stock antenna and using plasti-dip or heat shrink to improve the appearance. For all the trouble the $16 stubby antenna is easily reversible if you don't like it.

After having my stock antenna knocked around like crazy on a simple little dirt road yesterday, I ordered a stubby. Kinda excited because it's the first "real" mod to my Jeep. I have removed the Wrangler stickers and added decals commemorating my Grandfathers Military service and imprisionment in Bataan. But, this will be my first functional mod.
