Just buy a smaller antenna. They sell em cheap on eBay. Unscrew old one, screw in the new one. Boom done. For like $10.

Nastynate did you even bother to read any of this thread. People here like the looks of the shark fin, the whole reason for the thread. Going to order one tonight.

Re: Sharkfin Antenna Install with Pics

My car looks just like yours! I want to get a shark fin antenna put on mine but
I am worried about my XM radio signal, and navigation. I have read a lot of different things where some people have trouble and some people do not. What model is your jeep? I do not know if the year would make a difference in the different things that I have read.

I've had mine on for 2 years and haven't noticed any decrease with Sirius or Nav.
2013 Overland. The paint on the shark fin is still flawless as well, great product!

Re: Sharkfin Antenna Install with Pics

I couldn't tell you, but it can't be any worst. I've been running on no antenna for months and had no issues. My antenna snapped.

On installing my shark fin like antenna, I busted the original mount by drilling into the exiting busted stud so I can retread the new. Because of this, Receiption is poor as I must of snapped an internal wiring. I ordered a new mount from US for about $60 genuine. Pics attached - on install I should have opt for a my14 genuine sharkfin, it is clear they are compatible in wiring and fitting. That would eliminate in installing the sharkfin lookalike!

Ah well...
