Wtb stubby antenna

Am wanting a stubby black Antenna wondering where you guys suggest grabbing one from? I have one on my ram that I got from Moe's (horrible service wouldn't use them again). However it gives good reception and I really don't want to lose much on that side.

Any thoughts for a decent quality one about 4-6 inches.

I would highly recommend Antenna X they are sold on Amazon and Ebay with Free Shipping they have the best customer service bar none I got the stubby believe its 5 inches I don't use am/fm so I didn't care about reception I was more concerned about looks and it looks great.

I don't know if mines a dud or something, but i have a 13" antenna x and the reception is absolutely atrocious. Personally I don't care much because I usually just play music off of my phone and the antennae was a cosmetic mod anyway. And at only 12 bucks Im satisfied in what it does and I don't really care that its got bad reception.

Same here. Dont know what antenna it is, it was on when I bought the jeep, but reception sucks!! Want to get a longer cb style antenna. Only time I really use it is for traffic and news, otherwise I listen to sirius, but 90% of my commute I cant get any traffic because the reception is so horrible.

I just picked up a 13" from 4wheel parts.

Looks great and reception is the same as with the hideous 7' long factory antenna.

Bought the AntennaX 13" for $16.99 directly from the manufacturer as posted above. No loss in reception for me, at least in the Phoenix metro area. Great product and great price.

Put the 13" on two weeks ago. Love it! No reception issues.

In my personal experience, the Antenna X 13" will bend in the wind. If you do any interstate driving, it bends pretty badly; practically all the way back to the mirror. We have two of them on two different JKs, and it happens with both. They eventually bend back alright.

Just a heads up. Not sure if this is a known issue, bug, or "feature".
