Shark fin antenna
 
So I'm at the dealer now. Parts dept. Says there is no such thing as a shark fin antenna. Does mopar make a shark fin for the jeep?

Nope, it's an aftermarket product. http://www.visualgarage.com/

our Korean brethren's WK2 came with a sharkfin from the factory.. so yes, it seems like they do make them, just not here.

because it looks stupid... :)

I like the stock one on my Jeep and since I am not a shark, I do not need a fin on my roof. :D

I like the stock one as well but I don't like how it scrapes my garage door...

I may try the shorter antenna at some point. My Jeep was built last year and I think it has the 10" antenna...and I read somewhere that an 8" one was available.

It's not just about the look. WK2s in Korea are equipted with DMB(Digital Multimedia Broadcasting such as digital TV) and in order to cover the frequency range of DMB other than radios, it needs shark fin type antenna.

I think that the rubber antenna is silly as it will foul on many things that may be carried on the roof rails. The Sharkfin will be my first mod, as we nearly ripped our SUV antenna off with a table we were taking on the roof.

The first time I saw a WK2 with the stock antenna, I thought it had an erection. One of the first things I did was install the shark fin. Looks factory and I notice very little difference in reception.

you guys with shark fin antennas .... how has your reception been? I don't love the look of the factory setup, but i will admit that this car has the best AM radio reception of any car i've owned in the last few years - which i don't want to mess with.
