Question Upgrade to Shark Fin???

I've been think about upgrading to a shark fin antenna on my '13 Trailhawk, primarily to make it a lot easier to use the "car cover".
I did a search but didn't turn up much. So, I'm asking for brand recommendations and if reception suffers going to a "fin" vs the stock short whip?

TIA

I went from a 2012 Laredo with the whip antenna to a 2015 Overland with the shark antenna. I notice reception interruptions when listening to Sirius while next to hills and under high trees.

I've been running one of these on my 2011 for years without any problems. Many members here have purchased the same antenna without any issues.

Put a shark fin on my 2011 and haven't experienced any issues. Reception is great.

Re: Upgrade to Shark Fin???

I ordered a VG (Visual Garage) Shark Fin, it took about 10 days it receive it.
Install was straight forward, no issues, and have noticed no difference in AM/FM reception. I never renewed the over priced SiriusXM, although when I bounce over to the one "free" channel it comes in just fine.
