Reliable Off-Road Antenna. When radio communication is crucial for you, even when you’re on the trail, you need a radio antenna that’s up for the job. The Rugged Ridge 15-Inch Reflex Stubby Antenna is designed to be just the right height to keep it out of the way of trail objects. But despite its stubby design, it’s guaranteed to work just as well as your Jeep’s stock antenna.
Flexible and Durable. Your Jeep’s OE antenna is tall and rigid. This flexible 15” Rugged Ridge antenna has been designed to directly replace it. It comes with a lower height to prevent it from hitting tree branches and other objects that could damage it on the trail. Even if it hits something, its flexible design allows it to bend without snapping and return to its original form.
Easy to Install. This antenna installs directly to your Jeep without the need for drilling or welding. It comes with a threaded adapter to allow you to install it within seconds.
Application. The Rugged Ridge 15 in. Reflex Stubby Antenna is made for all 1997-2018 Jeep Wrangler TJ and JK models.

Looks great, works OK
This stubby antenna looks great, but your radio reception will suffer a bit. I use XM/Sirius and stream from my phone, so it doesn't usually affect me, but sometimes I do listen to the radio, and the signal definitely isn't as strong as it used to be.Helpful (0)

not worth it
Bought this hoping to replace my factory antenna that hits my roof rack on the trails. This comes with 2 different adapters neither seem to fit properly. Once installed I noticed my favorite station had a lot of static, and I completely lost another local station.Helpful (0)

Looks better than factory whip antenna
Very happy with the appearance of the 15" stubby. That tall, floppy factory whip was ugly. Lost some distant stations, but as long as I'm in town, I get all my favs. I'd buy it again.Helpful (0)

The antenna is way too flexible. I don't know if everyone else who bought this product didn't drive on the interstate, but if you drive over 55 miles an hour expect to have the whack the side of your jeep. It has a plastic tip so it is very loud. The reception was not great either.Helpful (2)

Reception not great
Antenna fits and looks great but the radio reception isn't like I expected. Typical stations I used to get in another car, I loose earlier or don't get at all. So, for the looks, great but if you want consistent reception, purchase a satellite radio package.Helpful (1)

What's the advantage of the 15" antenna over the 13" antenna, or vice versa?
You may get slightly better reception with the longer antenna, but mostly it comes down to ascetic and which one you personally think looks better!
Will this work with SiriusXM?
The Rugged Ridge 15 in. Reflex Stubby Antenna will not work with SiriusXM, as Sirius requires the use of a separate satellite antenna.
Does 15 pick up better than stock Doyou have cable from atenna to radio
The Rugged Ridge 15 in. Reflex Stubby Antenna is designed to work just as well as the Jeep's stock antenna, so neither will produce a better reception than the other.
What's the best antenna for reception? I realize in most cases the longer the better but composition can make a difference I believe.
The OEM antenna will provide the best reception, however most stubby antennas will be adequate for clear reception unless you are a large distance from the source tower of the radio broadcast.
how does this just screw in? adapter screw doesn't go all the way through.

We have not received any complaints, however a short antenna is a short antenna, so if you have had issues in your area in the past, it is likely that you will still have these same issue with any short antenna.
This will sustain a car wash but would recommend removing if the car wash is not a touchless wash car.
The Rugged Ridge 15 in. Reflex Stubby Antenna will not have any sort of fitment issue with the 2017 JK Wrangler.
