Question Does 2014 WK2 Antenna fit 2011-2013 WK2

I cant believe that they finally improved the antenna on the new 2014 Grand Cherokee , but what Id like to know is it would be a direct replacement for me on my 2012 ,, I know all about the shark fin thats available and Ive heard mixed reviews , but all and all they work good, but if this this was a direct replacement that would be great!

If anyone could help I sure would appreciate ,Thanks!!

no...confirmed by VERY good source. It will physically fit...but the wiring and electrical architecture are different!

yep...the new powernet electrical architecture will not allow us to add probably anything from the 14' GC's

Re: Does 2014 WK2 Antenna fit 2011-2013 WK2

I bought one off ebay I should have it next week but from comparing the pictures of the connectors and the MOPAR wiring repair website it seems only the AM-FM radio antenna connector is a direct fit.

This gives us hope.

So if you don't have SAT radio then this is an option
