So I am in the process of potentially buying my mom's Jeep Liberty limited. The one issue is the factory antenna is too tall for my garage and will snap it right off. I know they make a "shorty" one. Is there a nice flat one that anyone has used?
I want good reception, but the factory option would not fit in my garage. I am frusterated. Thankfully I did not buy yet.
Might be a burden to do every time, but you could take it off when you are parking in the garage for the night. The stock one does flex a little, not sure how much pressure it can take, but mine gets bent every single day entering and exiting my carport.

I would not want to do that each and every day. Not worth it. Have two kids. Want to get them inside asap to play after a long day at work. Plus, I would have to put it on every AM at 6 AM to put it on for my early commute. Just not gonna happen.
I imagine the problem would be backing out, as the antenna is slanted backwards. In would be no problem, but could catch on the way back out, like the barb on a fish hook.
+1, I almost broke mine off like that. Mine is outside all the time except when it's too cold to work on it out there and then the antenna comes off so I can get it in and out of the garage without any issue.
