Ordered a 13" stubby from AntennaX yesterday.

After bouncing the tip of the stocker off the windshield with the sprayer wand in the car wash yesterday, it was time to get rid of that long factory monster and never worry about a star in the windshield.

Installed mine last week on my 2012 JK. Thanks for the anwers here, gave me the confidence to take some pliars to the stock antenna to start it twisting. Came off after 2-3 careful tries and installed the Antenna X with the larger piece/adaptor. Screwed right in. I've listened to several radio stations and they sound the same to me as before, though I've been near the city and haven't taken a long drive, yet. One unexpected thing is that the AntennaX 13-inch stubby vibrates when the Jeep is at idle ... seems senstive to that. WShen I look that direction I notice it. Don't think the stock antenna vibrated, but I never really looked at it.

ohh .... I thought you had another option for those that were not getting the reception they wanted WITH your antenna. I live and drive in a rural area and I do not plan on paying for Sirrus radio after the free year is up. So I am not keen to the idea of loosing any reception that I get now with the stock antenna. Even tho I really like the looks of your antenna.
Thanks ....

No no, you misunderstand me, I can't select a shipping method at all:

I have triend this when sober after I was drunk and tried it again yesterday hoping that it would be fixed, but still no (and sent the initial query - and no-one pretend that you haven't ordered stuff on line when drunk :P )

Amazon said that they don't ship to me in Australia - I WANT TO BUY AN ANTENNA!!!

Got the 13" on as of yesterday, what should have come on the vehicle from the factory IMO.

Is the only difference between the two that one is wrapped in a rubber sleeve and the other is just the normal metal material.

I've ordered a Billet Silver 2013 and not sure which would look better.

I guess it just depends on the look you are going for. black billet has a nice street look, if your jeep is lifted and has large tires, i believe the offroad antenna is the one to have. reception is the same on each one, so the choice is yours

Just installed my 13" stubby the other night, and my FM reception quality decreased pretty dramatically. Is there supposed to be a gap at the bottom where you can still see metal (approx 3/16th of an inch)?

I need to figure out why my reception got so bad while so many others notice little or no change at all...

I have same gap at bottom mount. A nice feature of the antenna would have been a squared off base to tighten the antenna down into the body mount.
