Your thoughts on the sharkfin antenna

Hey guys,

I just added the sharkfin antenna to my stone white 2011 WK2 and I really don't know how I feel about it. What are your thoughts if I should dump it or keep it.
The color is not a great match but it works.

Thanks in advance.

Keep it. It looks 10X better than the stock one.

Definitely stay with the shark fin. Contact visual garage about the color mismatch and they'll get you one with an exact color match.

Re: Your thoughts on the sharkfin antenna

I think it looks much cleaner, this is next up on my list to do.

Re: Your thoughts on the sharkfin antenna

I would get one for mine except I don't like the way visual garage one droops down towards the rear of the antenna. Looks like a Dolphin with a bad fin.

Re: Your thoughts on the sharkfin antenna

I received mine in the mail a few days ago and it too doesn't match at all with my jeep. I haven't installed it yet. I sent an email but haven't received a response yet.

Re: Your thoughts on the sharkfin antenna

I would love to find a different "tail" for the OEM one. A shorter cleaner looking one would look better in my opinion then the shark fin.

Re: Your thoughts on the sharkfin antenna

I like mine. Reception has been fine (I live in a large city with powerful radio stations); satellite's great too. Way better than the bumper-car antenna.

EDIT: Mine is Visual Garage

Re: Your thoughts on the sharkfin antenna

Keep it. Pretty soon you're going to get so used to it you're not even going to notice it's up there and it looks much better than stock.
