1997/2014 Cherokee
Default Shorty Antenna

I had to remove the antenna for a recent trip with a kayak. Everything seemed to work fine without the antenna on there (satellite radio, radio, navigation, etc). So that's awesome. What I don't like is having the contact points exposed. So I'm looking to find a stubby (2-3 inch) replacement. I've found one for GM vehicles, but they have a different type of attachment.

Let me know if you have seen this or have any ideas. This would probably solve roof-rack problems too.

I put The Stubby Antenna from Craven Speed ($19.99) on mine for this very reason. Still seems to get good reception. With the stubby antenna I was able to use my cargo box. I've seen a blade antenna modification that cost a bit more and requires a bit more work to install. The Stubby was easy, just screwed right on.

Thanks for the input and pictures! I went to the site and it looks like they have an even shorter one, but it's only available for the liberty. Have you dealt with their customer service department at all? They say if the vehicle isn't listed they'll find it.

Haven't had to deal with customer service yet.
