Product Review: Rukse Jeep Wrangler JK Stubby Antenna
Here we review the Jeep Wrangler JK stubby antenna from Rukse. They carry quite a few different models in various sizes and colors. The antennas are a direct replacement for your stick whip like antenna that frankly does not look very good on the Jeep and sticks up way high.
There are several sizes, in 3,6,9,12,15, and 21 inches.
And they will do them in regular colors of black, white, red, and matte finish. They will also do some custom colors in pretty much any color you want but be prepared to pay for that.

Impressions of Product, Review of Installation Process, and Other Thoughts
These are real easy to install, you simply remove the old antenna and put on the new one. There are some tips to know before you install, use a towel or something to protect the new antenna when tightening it.
Make sure that the threads are not cross threaded when installing the antenna and use some anti-seize compound so you can get it off easily again. Make sure you pick the correct antenna for your needs. The smaller antennas are mainly for looks and do not get the best radio reception. They are mainly for Jeeps like ours that prefer satellite radio and dont really listen to the radio.
If you are in a big city that does not have a lot of high buildings you will get radio reception but it will vary.

The Rukse Jeep Wrangler JK stubby antenna is the perfect complement to your Jeep Wrangler JK, it gives it a great look and is easy to install. The steel construction will last longer than those rubber versions.
Made to last and with a great look it is the perfect aftermarket upgrade to your Wrangler JK.
We give this item a 4 out of 5 stars. We feel this is a must have item for your Jeep Wrangler JK. The Jk stubby antenna will change the look of your JK with very little money. It will hold up to the off-road lifestyle and will not look ugly like the stock whip antenna.
They seem to be of heavy duty construction and made to last. The color is nice on them and thick powder coating that looks to be of good quality. We installed the 3 inch version and loved it but have since gone up to the 9 inch version. We are told that the 9 inch version is the most popular.
