Re: Just installed mineral grey Sharkfin antenna. Pics inside!

I haven't installed it, but I believe it's just held on with 3M tape like the emblems. A little heat, some fishing line or plastic putty knife and it will come off pretty easily.

I just installed the Sharkfin antenna from Visual Garage on my 2012 Overland and im very happy with the results. As minor of a mod as it is, it really does accent the Jeep very well. Reception is as good if not better than the original antenna. Color match was close enough and installation was simple. Took a couple weeks to receive it, but other than that im very pleased.

Here are some pictures of my Overland to show the antenna. Please excuse the gloomy weather and dirty Jeep.

Looks great.....I have the same exact vehicle and color as yours. Any tips or issues with the install? Does the GPS and Satelite work OK?

No tips or issues for you it was a very simple and straight forward installation. Also, like I said in my original post AM and FM work as good or better than prior to the sharkfin install. I don't think this antenna has anything to do with the GPS so obviously that's fine. As for XM, again not sure if this antenna is even for that, but either way XM works like it always has...just fine.

The longer I have had this antenna on the more and more I like the look. I highly recommend it.

Man that looks great. I went to the web site and they don't show a GC in the options. Did you have to special order yours or what do I have to do to get one.
Thanks.

For what ever reason they have have never listed JGC. If you email them, they will send you the info and even invoice your Paypal account if you want.

Re: Just installed mineral grey Sharkfin antenna. Pics inside!

I just got mine in today (Inferno Red) and the color was way off. It is kind of a burnt orange. Emailed customer service and now they want me to take pictures of it and send them so they can adjust their color...What? I responded and now am waiting to hear back from them to see what they are going to do about it.

takes 30sec to remove and you only remove the whip. THe original base remains on the roof and the Sharkfin attaches to it withe a small screw and it then sticks over top the OEM base.

I just installed mine last week and after sending the wrong color originally, I'd have to say it's a perfect match to my Dk Charcoal and reception is perfect.

Re: Just installed mineral grey Sharkfin antenna. Pics inside!

When these were first posted, the colors seemed spot on. Wonder why there seems to be some issues now? You'd think that would happen at first.

I got my sharkfin in last week and the paint match was good. I must say it looks a lot better than the stock antenna
