Or use the Chrysler pull down option on JG website, it's the same paint codes as Jeep unless it's one of the new colors and then you may be outta luck, not sure.

If you like to listen fm/am than I wouldn't buy this thing, much worse reception than original. Satellite is ok.

Oh, well we don't have satellite radio here in Australia... The marketing makes out this is as good or better than the original antenna.

To be fair, they don't make it out to be "as good or better." I have found them very honest. What it says on the site is

"Is VG Shark Fin Antenna functional and how does it compare to stock?
Yes! The built in fractal antenna attaches directly to your antenna base and gives you normal reception for AM and FM radio. The reception is consistently better than any stubby antenna that we tested, and virtually unchanged within the city compared to the stock antenna. However, you might notice a drop in reception when further away from the source"

I live far from the stations I listen to and have noticed no degradation though. My antenna is painted with non-metallic paint though.
