MOPAR Remote Starter Antenna Module

Does anyone know the factory mounting location for the Antenna Module for the Mopar remote start kit? I know the information is in the Service Manuela but I don't want to spend the $125 to purchase a copy.

A very good post here shows it being mounted to plate below the steering column but since the hood switch bracket had a predrilled location I would think the Antenna has one too. I would like to get the best operating distance.

location of oem remote start antenna

You would think the location for the OEM remote start antenna would be up near the compass module located under the radio cover on the center console. Nope. After looking around I found it at the bottom of the center console just below the accessory switches behind the "mesh" panel. Just gently pull it off and you will see the mounting holes. You do not have to pull the entire bezel out but it is not easy feeding the wire through to the steering column. I used a two foot piece of wire and fished it through. Nothing wrong with mounting the antenna on the kick plate just below the steering column. Seems to be at about the same height as the OEM mounting position. I just did not want to drill the holes in my new JK.
