To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Fantastic- Did a preset on the radio for far away stations prior to install, noticed zero loss in signal afterward. As good as factory, I like the height as it’s not “stubby”, should have come this way from the factory. Install is done with a little adapter that screws into the Antenna then into the jeep. Only slight bug is there is carbon around the base (it does have depth, I think it’s real), I would like to see a matte or black steel to better suit a JK. No anti theft system, I can’t see someone stealing it unless they know what it is and are looking.
If you have a JK you need this- no more fear of car wash damage or branches slingshotting the factory one into the body work.
Antenna looks great installed, much better than the stock steel whip. FM reception is good, I receive all my programmed stations clearly. AM reception is not as good as the stock steel whip though. Sometimes I listen to a local talk radio station but this antenna does not bring it in clearly. No big deal for me because I rarely listen to AM. One thing to be careful with is the brass mounting stud. Brass is very weak and if you over tighten or hit the antenna you could easily snap the stud leaving the broken piece in the mount. You would have to extract the broken stud to get another antenna mounted so be careful. Overall, 5 star looks and 4 star performance would be my fair assessment.
I cannot say enough about this product. We purchased the antenna for our 2018 JL Rubicon. I received the parcel two days before the estimated delivery date. The instructions were very clear and it took less than a minute to install. The antenna works great and can easily pick up all the stations we could with the original antenna.. What more can I say. Although the antenna works really well, the real reason we bought it, was for the look. After all, the best music a Jeep owner can listen to is the sound of the tires humming down the highway.
My boyfriend was shocked I was changing to a shorter antenna because he was not very confident in it. I told him I read the reviews and it would be little change. This past weekend we drove up North where the reception isn't always great and he was sold because it really didn't change the results. He now is happy I upgraded the look of the antenna but I told him to wait until he sees what will happen on the trails. He may purchase one for himself after that.
I never liked the stock thin wire looking antenna on my Ram 1500, this one definitely looks much better and compliments the grey and black on my truck. As for performance I don't really listen to the radio much, but after installing it I tuned to a few FM stations and I was surprised that the reception was actually better.. at least on those stations, also I'm not sure how the reception will be on longer road trips when more out of signal range - we'll see, but so far I totally recommend this antenna.
Fits perfectly on a 2021 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, such a simple install and looks so much better then the factory metal whip. See others say it does not thread properly but mine went in like nothing and fit perfectly as you can see from the pictures. This blends in with the truck and does not stand out like a sore thumb. As for radio reception, I have not lost any stations that I listen too so no issues there either. Great addition to the truck!! 5 stars and highly recommend.
Looks fantastic.. but I live roughly an hour east of Toronto, I used to get all the FM stations, and AM for baseball and news. I now get zero AM and only 2 FM stations. Granted when I get closer to the city the stations do come back but still. I'm not that far away it sucks to not be able to hear am for sports. But its 100% improvement in looks makes it worth it
Bought this as a replacement for the factory installed antenna on my Ram 1500 Sport. I love it. It took about a min to install (different sized adapters come with it) and reception is just as good as it was with the original. Only thing I might change is the addition of an inexpensive tool to remove the locking nut at the base of the antenna (where it attaches to the hood) as it was a bit of a pain to find something that worked well without any chance of slipping and scratching the vehicle. Other than that...full stars and highly recommended.
Vraiment joli, mais surtout très efficace. Plus performant que l'antenne d'origine. Je capte beaucoup plus de poste et même un peu de AM, c'est pour dire!! Les endroits où je perdais le signal, je ne le perds plus. Installation? 1 min!
Really pretty, but above all very effective. More powerful than the original antenna. I get a lot more post and even a little AM, that is to say! The places where I lost the signal, I do not lose it anymore. Installation? 1 min!
The 13 inch antenna looks awesome and goes great with my black Jeep Wrangler. It looks better than the long metal stock antenna. I am quite disappointed with the signal quality. The product advertises itself as a great antenna, however I've lost consistent signal quality for both FM and AM. My XM still works well. Looks great but not as good as the original antenna.
