Regular Jeep Antennas and CB Antennas

Antennas are notorious for getting stuck in everything. Car washes and tree branches being the most common. While most antennas are fairly flexible, they can only take so much. The most logical thing to do is to either mount the antenna lower or upgrade to a shorter one. The shorter antenna is certainly the easiest route since it just bolts into the stock mounting location. Some antennas are a full 20-inches shorter than stock while the most extreme stubby antennas don’t even reach hood height. Some antennas come with an aftermarket base, adding a bit of extra customization to your rig’s exterior. No matter which version you choose, without a doubt the best Jeep antenna is the one that doesn’t snap while out on the trail.

CB Jeep Antennas and Mounting Locations

Your stock antenna may not be the only antenna you have to worry about. CB antennas and radios are ideal for keeping in contact with your trail group, and there are several places to mount it. Thankfully CB antennas are more resilient to bending and breaking, the mounting location isn’t as critical. For the most part, CB antennas are made of fiberglass and other weather-resistant materials, making them fairly durable even when getting smacked on the trail. Unfortunately, the length can’t be shorted without compromising the performance of the antenna. As far as where to mount the thing, you have three main options: the spare tire mount, a custom fender mount, or the spare tire hinge. The safest of the three is the spare tire mount. Nestled behind the spare tire and between the roof, the only branches that’ll threaten it are the ones directly overhead.
