Question 2014 antenna on 2012?

I found few threads discussing shark fins and stubby antennas but not about swapping 2014 antenna on 2012.

So my question is if I can put 2014 antenna on 2012? I think 2014s have shark fin from the pics I have seen. I donít want to compromise reception as this is not just a cosmetic change. Someone told me that his GC antenna broke going through a car wash.

Can someone also tell me if they noticed any changes (better or worse) after installing shark fin antenna?
Thx.

The 2014's have a new electrical system and I read where it will not work on prior year WK2's.

Oh ok.Thx. I thought antenna is not affected by different electrical system but I guess I was wrong. I will look for after market fin. Is there anything I should look for? Local company which is mentioned in other forums sell it for $80 Canadian. On ebay I saw similar fin from a reputable seller for $20. Why such a big difference?

I might have missed it.
I didn't see jeep listed in the brand chart.
How did you get a jeep gin from Visual Garage.
Thanks.

That's what I did as well and their response was quite fast as well.
