Re: Shorty Antenna for my 01 Limited WJ

Yes the shorty is reuseable because there are 3 different sized thread adaptors that come with the antenna. I am 99.9% sure I put the correct size in the hole and I hand tightened it and then I just took a vise grips to give it a little extra turn. It was still turning a little and then the adaptor snapped off. I then emailed Brian at shortyantennasource.com and he is sending me a new adaptor so worst case is now I have to wait a few days before I can put it on.

Other than that, it looks really cool!

Re: Shorty Antenna for my 01 Limited WJ

Looks good, mon_21.

Has anyone considered attempting to use an OEM Honda S2000 or Element antenna? They're fairly cheap. The only thing I can think of that would prohibit this is a difference in thread spacing.

Re: Shorty Antenna for my 01 Limited WJ

I have an 03 GC, and I too have been wanting to get a shorty. While I was at Pep Boys (yea, sometimes you gotta do what ya gotta do) I found a little 4.75 " black stubby from Pilot Automotice, # ANT-029B. The Pep Boys SKU is ANT029B and it was $12.99.

I installed it last night, and I CAN tell a slight difference on AM, but FM is just as clear as ever! It looks great, and it took all of 45 seconds to remove the old antenna, squirt some petroleum jelly into the threads on both the antenna mount and the antenna, and screw it down.

For the money and the look, go for it!
