    Reliable OE-Style Antenna. Getting a reliable signal from your radio is vital when you’re out in the great outdoors, so you’ll need a radio antenna that’s both effective and dependable. Indeed, the Rugged Ridge 21-inch Reflex Stubby Antenna is designed to have a height as close to your OE antenna as possible, while its stubby design keeps it from getting taken out by low-hanging branches.

    Tough yet Flexible. This tall and flexible 21” Rugged Ridge antenna has been designed to directly replace your Jeep’s factory antenna. It comes with a similar height, but with a more stubby and flexible build to help it survive hitting tree branches and other objects you can encounter on the trail. Upon impact, it’s made in such a way that it’ll bend and return to its original form quickly without snapping.

    Easy to Install. This antenna is designed to directly replace your Jeep without the need for drilling, welding, or any other type of vehicle modification. For added convenience, it comes with a threaded adapter for a quick installation process.

    Application. The Rugged Ridge 21 in. Reflex Stubby Antenna is made for all 1997-2018 Jeep Wrangler TJ and JK models.

        does this antenna pick up all stations as well as the factory antenna, or is there some loss in reception? thanks

        • The Rugged Ridge 21 in. Reflex Stubby Antenna may have a little less reception than the stock antenna but will overall still carry good reception service.

        I spend most of my time in rural areas and currently have a 13" flex antenna on my 2015 JK and have very poor reception (almost none). What is my best option for improved AM/FM reception?

        • A stock length antenna will provide the best reception.

            Happy Gal :)

            I was searching for a longer size antenna for my JL, came across this one only to be disappointed that this was for a JK. Read the reviews,(Glad I did), and saw that more than one fellow jeep owner purchased it for their JL. Took a little bit of tweeking where it screws on but after that it went on just fine. The reception is good,,overall,,works like a charm! Rock on :))

            Great Look Same Reception

            This antenna is a quick, easy and good looking change from the original metal antenna. There has been no reduction in radio reception.....did I mention it looks great!

            The 21 inch Rugged Ridge reflex antenna is perfect! I initially replaced the factory issue antenna with a 13 inch Rugged Ridge reflex antenna, but was just not providing a strong reception.

            Way better than 13"

            I bought the 13" antenna and it always had a bend in it like a banana. No matter how hard I tried I could never straighten it....The 21" by RR is made of a more flexing rubber material and holds it shape way better. Looks great! Reception is perfect too!

            NO RECEPTION

            I like the look and the installation was easy 5 minutes or less but since I installed it most of my local radio stations do not come in. I thought that if I purchased the larger size I wouldn't have this problem but I was wrong.

            Fits correctly, looks great, and you still get good radio reception. I didn't notice any difference from the stock antenna.

            I love this product. Great quality and easy to install. Gave my Jeep am improved look and the antenna now blends in. Sound quality seems richer. Only glitch was neither enclosed attachment bolt worked but I was able to find one at an auto parts store nearby.

            Gives the Jeep a more Rugged Look

            This antenna is much more attractive than the stock antenna. I bought it for the purpose of having a shorter antenna so it would no longer rub on the ceilings of parking structures. The install took two minutes, used a 3/8 wrench to remove the stock antenna and used the larger bottom screw provided to install into the Jeep. This product seems to be good quality and should last a long while!

            New Antenna

            Just received my new reflex 21 inch antenna. I absolutely love it and looks so much better than the stock chrome antenna. Haven’t noticed much, if any, decrease in radio reception. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to upgrade or change their antenna. As an added bonus, this prevents your antenna from whipping back and scratching the paint on the windshield frame too.

            Reflex 21" Antenna

            Changing from the stock to the Reflex 21" Antenna was easy to install, even came with instructions. The new Antenna was much shorter than the stock one, and I was worried that I might loose some radio stations but no problem, I didn't loose a single station.
