    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.

        I am very interested in purchasing this 21" antenna, I like the reviews (thank you all for posting, it helps when making a decision!) Will it fit a 2018 wrangler JL?

        • Unfortunately, this will not fit a 20118 JL, as this is designed for the TJ and the JK only.

            Sport 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!

            Sporty

            The 21 inch black antenna made my Jeep look really sporty compared to the factory antenna. Love the new look it tied in with the rest of my black accessories.

            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.

            Works great.

            This says it doesn't fit my 2018 Wrangler JL, but it does. And It's a great addition to my Jeep. Good bang for the buck when replacing the silver antenna that came with my JL. Good reception for stations 45 minutes away. Granted, I live in the prairie state, so not a lot of stuff to obstruct reception, but I love this antenna.

            Looks good, Bad connection

            Purchased the 13" very bad connection with the radio stations. Purchased the 21", better but bad connection, static. Might just paint the original 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.

            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
