VG Shark Fin
 
Just installed my Shark Fin and I love it! The color match and reception are excellent! Question to my fellow VG Fin users: how does it hold up driving on the highway oh say 80-90 mph? I'm afraid the whole fin just might tear away! Any thought or comments? And don't say don't drive 80-90 mph then! V8 Hemi wants to play!

No chance its going to fly off in the wind if you installed it correctly. That thing is really aerodynamic, I don't think the actual forces on it are that strong.

I've had my shark fin on for about three months, still adheres good. On a recent road trip I cruised at 80mph for a good distance (yes it's legal in Texas) without problems. I like the looks much better than the 'euro-style' OEM antenna.

Theres a number of members here who have them and I don't recall hearing any falling off. I think as long as you follow the install directions (cleaning the area and adhering it properly), you'll be good.

I have had mine installed for 4 months and 10000 miles of highway driving in 100+ degrees temps. My highway driving has been from Tucson AZ to El Paso TX in and around 80 to 100 mph (until I got caught in New Mexico) and have had no issues. Not even issues in the car wash where I was worried.

PS..... in New Mexico, the officer was nice enough to sit with me as I showed him all of the great functions in the 2011 Overland with the ACC and FCA. He then showed me all the new radar he has like the rear facing radar and cameras they have. No ticket just a warning. 110 in a 75 zone...
Love my HEMI and my sharkfin

From Visual Garage. Great folks to deal with. Just send them the make, year and the color (color code would help) and you get it in a few days if the color is standard and a week if not.
