I like the rubber whip style instead of the short version of what I already have..why not just cut off what you already have stock antenna and save you some money $18.99 vs $14.99...but nice to have a choice.

I prefer the black as opposed to the stock silver and the metal over rubber for better reception. $4 won't break me.

That's good. I like this company so far. I received an email about 30 minutes after buying it asking where I had heard about the antenna because they had many orders that day, also saying that it would ship out the next morning. I emailed him back and he told me that he will probably join the wrangler forum seeing that he has a JKU.
Pretty good customer service I think!

I got the 14" and I never go through an automatic car wash since I have a soft top.

That's not so bad. I did something similar, too. I made a full concept Illustration in Photoshop of my own special edition. Tried to make it look like an actual Jeep edition like the Mountain, Islander or Call of Duty.

Hahaha, guess it's 'a Jeep thing' then. Why don't you post your special edition in photoshop? Could actually be a nice new thread: "Post your own photoshop special edition"

daggo, I'm thinking about the 8" version of this one or should I go with the 14". Is it pretty much a direct bolt on or do you have to take apart the mounting unit. I like to keep it simple, what do you think?
