      Features, Description, Reviews, Q&A, Specs & Installation


      • Reflex Antenna
      • Stubby 21” Height
      • Highly Durable Construction
      • Extremely Bendable
      • Simple Installation
      • Fits All 1997-2020 Jeep Wrangler TJ, JK and JL Models


      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 1997-2020 Jeep Wrangler TJ, JK and JL Models.

        Great value, easy install

        Didn't want to spend alot of time or money replacing my antenna and this was the perfect answer. Reception is better than it was with my old antenna. Installed without tools in less than 5 mins.

        5 2013 Wrangler - JeepDogg2019

        Great AM Reception!

        Put in new garage door that is lower than the older one. So, my OEM antenna was hitting the garage door upon entry and exiting... After purchasing two other (shorter) aftermarket antennas - and them not picking-up my AM talk radio station - discovered that this one (finally) did the trick! Signal is not as strong (or clear) as OEM antenna. But, pretty doggone good.....

        Works great for the radio. Easy to install. Only thing is that it looks like it’s going to fall off, moves backs and forth like it’s loose but it’s not, lol.

        Awesome Antenna

        This was just what I was looking for as my original one had got bent at the carwash. Its flexible and sturdy so no worries about it bending.

        Pretty good antenna

        The item was obviously really easy to install. Unfortunately, it did not fix the issue and am still having reception problems.
