To me, that looks like a standard satellite radio antenna. I don't think it's for AM/FM/HD radio reception.

Just finished putting on the Mopar crossbars (not sure if that qualifies me as a rookie modder). I'm getting used to the jaunty raked-back look of the stock antenna but the sharkfin is sexy.
I just ordered the Mineral Grey sharkfin antenna and will post some pics so those with Mineral Grey can see how the color looks.

You beat me to it, Mashie. You need to let ME be the guinea pig for the next mod for our twin rigs. Next thing we'll be swapping playlists so that our HDDs are synced.

hahah thats a deal C! Now if you can find us a matching wood shifter knob I would greatly appreciate it! . I just think the sharkfin will look much better then the stock antenna.

Re: Sharkfin Antenna Install with Pics

Will the 300 fit a 2012 with the brilliant black?

Do you lose any 3G reception with the shark fin? I know you lose some FM/AM reception, but that's not too much of a concern for me. I am think more in regards to satellite reception for location data and 3G signal data through the antenna.

Re: Sharkfin Antenna Install with Pics

How good was the paint match? I have bright silver metallic, but some trim pieces (including the antenna) are in matte black. I am considering getting a black one instead of trying to match the silver.
