What year did they start mounting the antenna on top of the hood vs the side of the fender panel on the YJs? ...and what was the logic for the change if anyone knows?
Lol. That sucks man. Made me laugh outloud. Totally something I'd do.That surface is called the cowl. And it isn't a factory antenna. Definitely an after market product. All YJ antenna's in stock form, were mounted down on the side of the body.
If that antenna has a spring on the bottom of it, be careful of catching it on the wrong branch in the woods, when it releases it will most likely take out the windshield. I had a CB antenna on my CJ mounted in almost the same location, thought I was being smart by putting a spring on the bottom so it would flex instead of snapping the antenna. Yep, smart...smashed the windshield when it caught on a branch as I was backing up.
