Many people seem to blame the antenna for their FM radio reception when many have put little stubby antennas and have had the same reception...
I think the biggest factor is your location, terrain and distance from the signals. Also, that head unit is horrible... if you had an aftermarket unit I bet you'll get better reception (if your location, terrain and distance from the signals is acceptable).
I took off my large factory antenna and put on a stubby, my multipath reception problems diminished. If the OP is in a major city with buildings, multipath may be the issue. Stubby's been on for a couple months and it's still there (knock on wood). It's actually not that visible, black on black.
FM reception problems are really "trial and error". There are so many factors involved. Not all tuners are the same... invest in a Pioneer HU with "Supertuner" and you may get better reception.

Here's a couple of threads on shorty antennas:

That's the stock antenna. Reception should be OK, unless you're in the boonies.....
A lot of folks, myself included, cut them off shorter (and re-solder the ball on) so they won't catch branches and flop around, maybe breaking a windshield. Or you can replace it with an assortment of inexpensive shortys.
Non of those options will improve reception, though.

FYI, this is what mine looks like...

Hmmm, that's helpful, but not
Thanks though! Any feedback is helpful.

Antenna on '12 Wrangler Sport
I bought my Jeep with about 5,000 miles on it. So I'm not sure if it has the stock antenna or an aftermarket one. But it seems kind of chincy... Radio signal isn't the best. Anyone else feel the same way? Any advice on a replacement? Thanks!
