Factory SAT radio Antenna

I was wondering if anyone knows were it is located? When I have a roof rack on my reception is bad and if i am driving south i have no reception.

Can I move the stock antenna?

Can I get an aftermarket one that I can position to work more effectively?

I do not have the MYGIG I have the regular radio if it matters


Thanks

Jim

folks have moved it.

Mine is a 2-dr and the factory sat-ant is located above my left ear while sitting in the drivers seat. It's under the padding on the rollbar above. I also have bad issues with reception due to the rack and have yet to get the aftermarket plug in antenna that I'm going to relocate somewhere. Right now I'm considering the drivers side vent surface close to the windshield wiper, the antenna is the size of a quarter, black, tiny wire and plugs into the factory location. This way I can leave my stock setup alone and reuse it down the road if I ditch the rack.

Thanks for the info, sounds like a new antenna is the way to go! I think I will mount mine on my bull bar, I will have to go and pick one up at best buy
