When you click on order, there's no Jeep to be selected under make?

My FM is worse with the sharkfin installed, that is for my geographical location as soon as installed it, I noticed a degrade in signal depending on where I am traveling and how close I may be to other interference such as NYC. It does not pick up more then half the stations I should be getting. Since I don't listen to FM much, I have left the sharkfin for aesthetics, I know its not effecting the SAT. I even thought the SAT was in the dash, NOT on the roof... as per other threads from many months ago
Thanks for the info on the shark fin. I was seriously considering one since I can't get the Jeep in the garage with the factory antenna installed. I am also on Long Island so I am sure my results would be the same. Thanks for saving me $80.

Bob.

Re: shark fin guys - can anyone speak to reception after install?

South Shore will be interesting if your south of Montauk Highway and/or on a canal. Best of luck! Hopefully it doesn't turn out to bad. Its weaker then they said it would be when it hit compared to a couple of days ago.

Re: shark fin guys - can anyone speak to reception after install?

Hey Mike & J13, How did you make out with the storm? Happy to say not much damage here in central Nassau (Levittown). Jeep is in desparate need of a bath with all the wind blown stuff stuck all over it. Will have to wait for the wind to die down a bit.

Bob.
