Just installed mineral grey Sharkfin antenna. Pics inside!
 
I know its not a earth shattering modification or anything crazy like that, but either way I like keeping these forums going and I know everyone loves pictures.

I just installed the Sharkfin antenna from Visual Garage on my 2012 Overland and im very happy with the results. As minor of a mod as it is, it really does accent the Jeep very well. Reception is as good if not better than the original antenna. Color match was close enough and installation was simple. Took a couple weeks to receive it, but other than that im very pleased.

Here are some pictures of my Overland to show the antenna. Please excuse the gloomy weather and dirty Jeep.

Looks really nice!

Gotta ask tho, does your jeep fit in your garage!? Maybe it's the angle but it looks super short haha.

Looks like you're almost ready for the sod party. All you need is some beer and brats on the grill for some free labor.

That's why he opted to get QL and lower it into park mode ;)

I ordered my sharkfin last week so I hope mine looks that good once it gets here! Your Jeep looks so clean and sharp. Great pics :)

It must be the angle because it fits with plenty of room to spare. Infact, I can use the power lift gate in the garage without it even getting within 5" of the garage opening or the door itself.

Too funny. Seems like I remember the yard conversation from one of your earlier post.

It looks great, this is on my list to do.

I would think the color would be spot on, I thought they used the factory paint code.

Well its weird because prior to installing the antenna when I was holding it up against the car it looked like it was just a hair lighter in color. Now that its installed and on the roof you cant tell any difference. Either way though like I said when its up on the roof it looks identical.

Can you post the link to where you bought the shark-fin?

Take a look here. For some reason the haven't had the JGC listed. If you email them, they will send you a link and even a invoice in Paypal if you want.

For anyone that installed the shark fin, do you know if it's easy or hard to remove and will it leave any marks? My GC is leases, so I would have to put back the original antenna when I return it in a few years.
