    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.

        Does this work with Sirris XM radio?

        • The Rugged Ridge 21 in. Reflex Stubby Antenna is an AM/FM antenna replacement. The OEM Satellite radio antenna is attached to the passenger side of the roll bar.

        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.

        Helpful (1)

        I have a JK and A TJ. I tried to swap antenna because my TJ has a windshield mount light bar and the stock antenna hits while driving. One was a male and one was a female. Is this right or did I miss something.

        • The antenna should have a male/female adapter in it. Sometimes this sticks in the base, and sometimes in the old antenna.

            Great looking antenna

            If you listen to regular am/fm radio and are thinking about the 13 inch version get this one instead. This gives you the same look but gets reception like the stock antenna.

            Much better aesthetics and performance

            I've got a Khaki TJ with black trim. The silver whip antenna didn't look "right" and lived up to its name above 40mph. The stubby looks better and holds a more stable shape at higher speeds which improves reception. Noticeable increase in range of radio reception on my 45 minute commute through mountain/foothill passes.

            One of the first upgrades and couldn't be more happier! Amazing how something so simple could make a Jeep look so much better.

            Looks good, good reception

            Only negative is that the adapter screw is kind of short, making the install more difficult than it really should be.

            Rugged Ridge 21 inch Stubby Antenna

            Nice accent to the Jeep versus the factory antenna, my main complaint is that the adapter included is not long enough, resulting in the antenna coming loose and almost falling off... best suggestion is to put plumbing thread tape on both the top and bottom of the adapter before screwing on

            Short and Stubby

            Looks good, easy install. i like it better then my stock antenna that had gotten bent, and this one feels like it can take a beating running through the trees. I haven't seen how the reception is but i will believe everyone else that says its probably a little staticy but i got it more for the look. Overall great purchase!
