I want to buy one of these GC 2014 Sharkfin Aerials and fit it on my 2013 model SRT8.

Does anyone know if this will fit on the 2013 model and where can I purchase this OEM Sharkfin Aerial?

just confirmed....the 2014 antenna will obviously physically fit....but the 14' has a new electrical architecture....so the wiring etc. is different and WILL NOT WORK on 11-13' Jeep Grand Cherokees!

Why not get one specifically for your 2013 from Visual Garage? It's $69 and comes prepainted. You just have to select your make and model on their site as a Chrysler 300.

the 14' antenna is a slightly different shape...so I can see someone wanting that and oem quality. But I have the visual garage antenna on my 13'

This is a bit strange as it should only be 2 conductors for the aerial. Center core and the coax shield. Hopefully someone comes up with a mod so this OEM sharkfin aerial can be fitted. For example Modified plug or possibly solder the connection. If i could get my hands on oneof the 2014 OEM Shark Fins I would attempt it myself.

its the powernet architecture my friend...completely different electrical system. Probably will wire up or something...but the powernet and previous gen electrical systems use different frequencys or some electrical term like that. Im no electrician...so i dont know the terms. I doubt anyhting on the 11-13 to 14's will be compatible
