Thumbs up Grand Cherokee Roof Antenna

Looking at the pictutes I was wondering if the height of the GC with what seems to be a tall extended roof antenna will have problems with garage entry into a standard city type overhead door. Any options just in case, I would hate to have to remove it every time I garaged the GC. No Car wash for my GC, HAND WASH ONLY. I have to stand by and wait a little longer, but a GC - Overland - V6 - White Gold - Saddle Interior - Is soon to be parked in my driveway.....

CasAce......

Re: Grand Cherokee Roof Antenna

I had it measured at the dealership - antenna makes the total vehicle height about 78 feet. it is flexible but right now there is nothing shorter available on the market(stubby antenna) or through jeep. Sirius works without the antenna but you don't want to leave it off to get moisture in the opening for to long.

Thanks for the measurements. My opening clearance is 83 1/2 inches. I guess I'm good to order... Need to wait for the saddle interior and the white gold exterior to become available......

Thanks ALL .....
