Easy Antenna Fix

Here is a cheap and easy fix to your antenna smacking against your lights.


Step 1, buy a bag of these ($1.04 at Lowes):




Step 2, Paint one of them your favorite color.


Step 3, Insert it into/behind your light covers:




Step 4, Line up antenna in "slot":




Step 5, slide antenna into clip and lock it in:





Step 6, Enjoy your day!

Remove it entirely. Sirius is where it's at. FM radio absolutely sucks in my area. I would go Trail Rated badge to cover the hole too.

What about when your covers are off (i.e on trail, where they really bang around) ?

It looks like they are clipped to the cover, which would be removed offroad / during light usage.

Mods: TF2.5" Coils, Zone Nitro Shocks, RC 1.5" Wheel Spacers, JKS Front and Rear Adj Track bars, JKS Quicker Discos, Poison Spyder Evap Skid, RR Taillight Guards. Soon to install Cobra 75WXST and RR XHD Modular Front Bumper

I bent mine then epoxied it into the windshield channel. Make sure you tape it in place while the epoxy dries.
