antenna cable help

Hi, when replacing my factory radio I damaged the connector on the line that goes from the antenna to the head unit (i.e., not the head unit or the aftermarket antenna adapter, but rather the connector the aftermarket antenna adapter snaps into that goes back towards the antenna itself). I want to replace this.

Can someone tell me what part I need? I assume I need a new cable of some sort, but I don't know if those goes all the way back to the antenna on the side of the car and if I need a new antenna base also, or if there is just some cable I can buy. I tried to explain this to the jeep dealership but I didn't have confidence that they understood what I was talking about and then they told me the part I needed was $150 which seems way high to me.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks! With that info and a little searching I was able to find the cable I needed and my local jeep dealer has one in stock for $21.

Frustrating that the service guys had no idea when I talked to them, but not surprised there is more knowledge on this forum!

In my experience the service guys tend to be more engine-transmission-axle-brake oriented. Anything electrical or suspension gets out of their realm of experience rapidly. Suspension work on my Jeep was performed at the body shop.
