Antenna?!?!?!?!

Anyone know where I can get a replacement antenna? The dealership had some ugly generic crap on the jeep looks like my daughter put together in my garage with a washer to hold it all together to prevent the cable from falling into the fender, which I found out when I removed the tacky thing they called an antenna. Looking for a good aftermarket, preferably black and shorty... PLEASE help, I ordered one that said it fit, of course, it doesn't fit. the base opening is too wide

He makes shorty antennas and they look FANTASTIC. I just got mine in the mail today actually. Very high quality and fit perfect.

Re: Antenna?!?!?!?!

I got a 15" generic black coated billet antenna with all sorts of adaptors from Auto Zone for $7. Works great for me. Stay away from the plastic ones. They soften up in the sun and start to permanently bend from wind resistance.

That antenna is pretty sweet, really nice work man. Curious how much you sell those for?

Got it from a guy on here that makes them, not sure if hes still around, its SOLID metal powder coated black, direct fit, and I did not lose any reception. IMHO its the best shorty out there, I hate the ones you get from auto parts stores that are thin with a little ball on the top. But thats just me
