Replace stock antenna...

Looking to replace the stock radio antenna that screws on the outside of the Jeep with a smaller whip type antenna. Any links or sites that sell them. Cannot find any at local auto stores.

This is great! I was just thinking about this the other day as I cleaned snow off the windshield and the antenna kept getting in the way.

Plus the black looks good.

I'll have to add it to the (mild, but ever-growing) mod list.

Thanks.

Any idea if it needs to be completely vertical? I think it would look even better if it could follow the rake of the windshield.

I don't see why not. Its just a radio antenna. Pretty sure a coat hanger would work to.

Good idea I just went to the drive thru carwash and dude always bends my antenna trying to unscrew that giant thing and proceeds to poke it in my window to get thru the carwash. Then you got to get out and screw it on again. With this antenna I am going to say no leave it

I remember the salesman telling me that the Jeep antenna was so long that you could use it as a guage for water foraging before your engine would flood out.

Just got confirmation that mine has shipped...saw this in email..PLEASE NOTE: Antennas must be unscrewed or retracted like any other car antenna before going through any automatic car wash, otherwise it will break.

Thanks and enjoy!!

Here is another option. 2007-2011 Wrangler : Shorty Antenna Source It's a short black metal antenna. I got it and love it.
