Question Does 2014 WK2 Antenna fit 2011-2013 WK2

I cant believe that they finally improved the antenna on the new 2014 Grand Cherokee , but what Id like to know is it would be a direct replacement for me on my 2012 ,, I know all about the shark fin thats available and Ive heard mixed reviews , but all and all they work good, but if this this was a direct replacement that would be great!

If anyone could help I sure would appreciate ,Thanks!!

The dealership won't know.


This is one of those mods where someone is going to have to bite the bullet buy one and see it the connectors are the same and how is the reception.


If they didn't move the AM/FM antenna to one of the windows then there is a good chance the swap is possible

I just ordered mine from VG and have to admit, the whole experience was rather nice. I sent them an e-mail stating what I wanted to order and the color code, 30 minutes later I had an e-mail back with a sales order. Click on PayPal and the whole thing was done in 1 minute.

I was expecting to wait the 2-3 weeks for delivery but I got an e-mail 2 days later with priority shipping. It came last night and I can't wait to put it on this afternoon.

I'm in no way affiliated with them I just felt it was a good experience.

Yes I just ordered the Mark II VG Shark Fin Antenna for 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee from The Visual Garage , Arthur now tells me that he can paint one in a flat black to match the trim!!

Re: Does 2014 WK2 Antenna fit 2011-2013 WK2

Not sure flat black is the correct color. It might be more of a flat dark charcoal or flat dark gray. Not sure though. Flat black is probably close enough.

Re: Does 2014 WK2 Antenna fit 2011-2013 WK2

Breaking news if you just have the AM-FM radio feature then you can use the 2014 Sharkfin. That is the only connector that matches with the 2011-2013.

So if you go Sat radio I would not suggest trying the OEM shark fin

Re: Does 2014 WK2 Antenna fit 2011-2013 WK2

I am trying to make shark fin antenna from 2014 working on my 2011 WK2. Antenna connectors are the same (white wire), but antenna amplifier wire is doubled on 2014 shark fin and connector is diferent. I need a wire diagram of 2014 antenna to understand why there are two wires for antenna amplifier and which is feeding what.
Can anybody help with 2014 antenna wiring diagram?
