When did Jeep change the antenna mast?

Hey Guys,
I have been trying to find a replacement antenna mast for my 1994 YJ, the old mast snapped off, although the brackets are fine. My Jeep has the double plastic bracket style mount, and the mast itself has a screw that goes through the bottom and ties the metal mast into the plastic bracket.

I have searched the parts catalogs for the right mast, but can't find it anywhere. All the stores and eBay seem to stock the CJ-style single mount (even for my year, 1994).

Does anyone know any more about when they changed?

Here are some pictures I stole from a similar thread, the first one is my style (note the two plastic mounts, upper and lower). The second is the style that everyone seems to sell.

Your mount is not OEM.

Hmmmmm, strange. I have had 2 1994's and they both had this style mast. Maybe it was a dealer installed option?

Nope there was no dealer option for a different antenna.... It is a side mount boat antenna I believe, and they are pretty easy to find online.

thats odd, my 1989 came from the dealer with the same antenna setup in Drews first pic and the replacement i ordered from Morris is a very similar 2 point mount. the original was collapsable , the new one is not.

panaceabeachbum,
That's good to know that your 1989 came with this same setup. Both of my 94's have had this setup, and the red pic (which is not my jeep) has it too.

If I can actually find someone who carries the mast, it is probably a 10 or 20$ part. I have to spend hours searching for it though

I just looked at the one I recieved from morris and its single point like the second pic, I have the remnants of my original and its a two point mount like the first one.

My jeep came with a non factory stereo and dealer added air so maybe the antenna was added at the dealership

I could see jeep running out of parts for production. A quick replacement would get them rolling again. So I suspect there could be a few odd balls out there. You see it in the 87s and 95s typically with the start and stop of model years.

Thanks for the link, but that is just not it. Maybe they did use a boat antenna, but it is clear now that Chrysler had 2 antenna parts used in different years. Maybe the two-piece style was a boat part, but I have not been able to find any boat parts that look even close.

Maybe Chrysler bought up 100,000 boat antennas and then used them as spares... The two-piece style seems to be widely distributed over the years (at least 89 through 94), but clearly only on a minority of Jeeps.

Thanks
Drew

FWIW, my '92 has the "2 point" style (at least since 1999).
