Antenna?

Hi there. I have been checking various forums including the last 11 pages of this one and haven't seen this posted: I hate the whip antenna and where they located it. Seems like a hazard for bikes and kayaks. Has this been an issue?

Briefly about me. I am considering trading in my Impreza in South Lake Tahoe, CA. Currently most interested in the Cherokee and Xterra. Afraid of the antenna being a deal breaker if it prevents me from hauling toys.

I don't think hitting it with a kayak will damage it or the kayak, but I hope to find that I can replace the whip (which is removable by unscrewing, BTW) with a sharkfin, but I haven't talked to the parts guy at the dealership yet.

I haul ladders and lumber and the antenna, although flexible, might be a PITA

I stopped by the local dealership asking if it can be swapped with a fin. They promised to find out and to get back to me. They haven't and that's what originally brought me here.

Looks like you can get a stubby antenna for cheaper that replaces just the mast too (no idea if either option is compatible fwiw)

I have the stubby antenna in my 2012 Wrangler. Can't beat it for $15. Planning to do it to my Cherokee when it arrives.

I thought we already had the stubby antenna installed. I tried taking my 7'6" surfboard today and had to place on the side because of the antenna. You don't care about these things until they affect you directly, huh?
