    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.

        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!

        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.

        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.

            Good size antenna

            I had considered a shorter antenna and then when i got a doors / top off cover I had to get one to keep my cover from getting punctured by my stock antenna. As far as reception , it drifts a tiny bit but overall it picks up fine. Cons: its not too secure , and can be unscrewed easily.

            Too Flexible in Hot Weather

            This antenna went on quickly and looks great, but in hot weather, the antenna becomes to flexible and starts whipping against the body at 55mph . The weather in my surroundings can be above 110 degrees. --There should be a warning. My low rating considers functionality, which got zero starts.

            Well worth the money

            I lost my original antenna to someone breaking it. I bought this one and am honestly very happy with it. Clear radio stations. I can say that FM comes in fine but I haven't really tried AM so I can't speak to it. I would definitely recommend it though. I live in S. Florida so I can't comment on anywhere with mountains or hills.

            Great buy

            Really happy with this antenna. My old one broke off and this one was a great replacement. No issues getting reception at all which was my main concern when buy a short antenna. I think it may be even better than stock.

            Easy install, minimal tools needed. It was kind of a tight fit and a little hard to screw all the way in, but it still worked great!

            4 Stars for Appearance

            I went back and forth when I was trying to decide what length to get but the bottom line is anything looks better than the ugly 32" stock metal antenna. I can't comment on the radio reception since my radio is currently not working but I definitely love the look. My only complaint is that on my 2004 TJ I really had to twist HARD when installing to eliminate the gap between the antenna and stock antenna base. I made absolutely sure that I was using the right adapter and that it was not cross-threaded and it still gave me a lot of resistance but I eventually got it on there.

            Does what I bought it for

            I was tired of my factory antennae bending in the carwash and I have no other chrome on my jeep. This antennae has the same reception (I mostly listen yup Sirius anyway which uses a separate antennae) as the stock one did. Screw of the old antennae and screw on this one. No problem

            I got very poor radio reception and I live in a metropolitan area. Resorted to using Bluetooth all the time until I bought another antenna on Amazon.
