Stock antenna question
 
I'm new and this my first post so looking forward to having the site for info. I have a 97 tj. Great vehicle and a couple of years ago for some reason I put a stubby antenna on the jeep. Well I kept my stock antenna and now want to go back with it. Well I don't remember what wa there as far as adapter or anything but what I have now is the stock hole that the antenna screws in to and the stock antenna --- my problem is the hole is too big for the stock antenna. It won't even begin to tighten just falls in hole. I don't remember having to use an adapter of some sort but either what do I need in order to put my stock antenna back on?? Is ther a male female adapter that I have lost and if so what is it and where can it be had.. Also I ordered an adapter of some sort that won't work thinking this is what I need but it male threaded on both ends but I would need a male for the mount and female for the antenna. Any help or suggestions is appreciated

well if no one knows the answer i guess i will order a used antenna assembly and that way i know the antenna will screw into the hole and if it has an adapter i can just swap out the antenna staff and use the adapter if it exist and i will post back to answer my own question just in case someone else has the same problem

You wanna send me your stubby?

I will gladly send you my stubby if you can find the female to male adapter I need to put my stock antenna back on and free shipping to you !! Did the tj wranglers come with this adapter on them stock ??? Because in my mind I don't understand why the factory hole in factory mount and the factory antenna won't match threads -- the mount hole is definitely too big for the stock antenna so either the hole has been stretched or I am missing an adapter Let me know what you find

IF you go to quadratec or some other jeep catalogue/website, i bet you can get a diagram of the actual part you are looking for and order it.

Also IF you help the person find what they are looking for rather than telling them what they already know. They could reach a conclusion much quicker.
