Replacement Antenna Branda

What is everyone's thoughts on replacement antennas? I saw some posts about Antennax to get rid of the long metal one..any thoughts on other replacement brands? Looking for a shorter one that I've seen on other JKUs and trying to find the shortest one with best reception .. Thanks!

I bought the 5" antenna x from amazon and it's great but outside the city it looses reception quicker then stock....if this ain't a issue to you go for it....looks great! Another member suggested painting stock and cutting to size then screwing the ball back on....liked the idea myself.

thanks Sean .. Looking on their site seems like the 13" might have slightly better reception and is still better than the 31" stock .. Thanks!

I have done this drill. Here is what I ended up with after trying the 5" stubby and not liking the reception.

24" AntennaX CB/FM/AM antenna. No, I don't use this for CB, AM/FM only. It works just as good as the factory for me.

The 13" AntennaX works great for me here in Phoenix.

I think I might give that a shot. Wasn't happy with the reception on the AntennaX 13" but did like the look...

btw it looks like Amazon is grouping all the AntennaX reviews together even though they are listed under the 24in CB antenna. I was seeing all these bad reviews for poor reception then realized it was for the 5in model.

yes, we have several sizes available. On amazon, we group our antennas by vehicle so you can choose several sizes from whatever listing you click on. The reviews are grouped together, just make sure on the top of the review which size it is referring to.
