Radio antenna trivia??
Are there 2 different OEM radio antennas coming on WK2's? Seems I've seen ones like mine which is about 1 foot tall and 1/2 inch in diameter +/-. I have also seen ones slightly taller, with the top half being about 1/4 inch in diameter +/-. Anyone have any info? Thanks. :whistle:

Yep, the original antennas were about a foot tall. The newer ones are about 8 inches tall if I remember correctly.

After removing tape from my doors (see above thread), I measured my antenna mast. It is 8 inches. So is there a manufacture date when Chrysler changed from the taller 2 diameter to the shorter antennae? Or was it done by model or what?

Saw a red WK2 Limited parked next to us today with a long (30" or so) fixed-length whip antenna (apparently fiberglass wrapped with wire) on the RF fender just in front of the windshield, just like in bygone days.

Aftermarket? No antenna at or near the usual rear roof position.

Are you sure it was WK2?

I saw a base model Laredo (Flex fuel) model no less today, it had a shorter antenna then either of mine.
