Antenna

Here is the problem. Cant fit a new 2011 JGC into the garage because of the height of the roof antenna. I will have to go aftermarket and hope it wont affect the reception of radio.

Question # 1 Any recomendations for the antenna?

Question # 2 Hearing conflicting reports that the antenna is or is not used for the GPS nav. Anybody know for sure? IF it is used for GPS on the Nav then forget it--I don't want to mess that up.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Antenna

It's AM/FM antenna only and you can simply unscrew it and still get reception in most places. I got the Shark Fin Mark II from visualgarage and it is painted to match and looks and sounds great.

+1 on that. Shark fin is a great look also.

Re: Antenna

When you go to the Sharkfin site, they don't list Jeep as a option on the order form. Did they quit supplying them for the GC?

Sounds like an email will do the trick.
