I didn't have my Jeep long before removing the AM/FM radio antenna, it just looks unsightly and is annoying on the trail. I haven't missed it, listen to Sirius anyway... ...so I'd like to take it a step further and remove the mount and replace it with a second "Trail Rated" badge. If I need AM/FM in the future, I'll replace it with an internal powered antenna.
Anyone ever done this? I can't figure out how to get at the mount from the inside. Too far back from under the hood, too far forward from inside... What am I missing?
I picked up a stubby antenna for mine off of Ebay ($10). I don't listen to the radio either, but I figured I would leave it near to original as possible in case I sell it someday. The stubby is only about 12" long and shouldn't be a problem with offroading or going through the car wash.....yes, I said it, car wash!

Wouldn't the trail rated badges not match up location-wise between the both sides?

Dad still has his '07 JKU Rubi, Mom has 2011 Overland WK2, and fiancee has 2010 JK, so Jeep is still around. Considering looking into a new Wrangler Unlimited. I miss Jeep so bad!
