New To Forum
Well, I am new to this forum and to Jeeps. I bought a new used White 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport with Sahara Trim Pckg, 18s, Power Packg, Dual Tops, etc...

Anyway, I am doing a few appearance mods and so far I know I have an antenna that will not come off and a steering wheel that is just a larger diameter than any of the 5 covers I have ordered. Not sure what the deal is there...

I will be doing a number of installs today: aluminum billet grill inserts, headlight/turn signal trim, door guards, Mopar gas cap cover, interior handles, etc...

Anyway will be searching threads for help.

Thanks. Now, if someone could please explain to me exactly why I seem to have the ONLY Jeep Wrangler with an antenna that does not screw off....OH PLEASE TELL ME WHY !!!! LOLZ...Okay maybe previous owner put Locktite on this thing...guess I will have to formulate something to remove it....Think I need to walk away from the antenna deal for awhile....that just sounded a little to over stressed...I just wanted to replace it with this cute little 13" black antenna...just for looks...It is not working out for me...and neither is a simple steering wheel cover...BUT, I do see my spare wheel cover for my Trans Am fits just have to spend an hour wrapping and lacing it...

Welcome too the forum!!!! Post up on the JK page your not the only person to have a left over PO problem with an antenna and locktite. I am sure someone can help you out. When you get the jewelry and lipstick on that Jeep post up some pics.

Just use a a small wrench and some elbow and it should come off.

Well, got a lot accomplished. Installed grille inserts, headlight inserts, signal light inserts, grab handles, fuel cap door, spare wheel cover. I did get the stock antenna off. Had to use 2 wrenches and then I applied some anti-sieze compound to the threads. Looks a lot better now.

Next, would like to see if I can fit an Optima battery in the Jeep. Not so sure one will fit. I have one in my Trans Am could do a swap to check the fit.
